  • i spent a lot of time running away from my light. 
the more i ran, the harder it became. 
when i started embracing my light,
the easier it was to embrace the parts 
of me that were longing for love 
and in need of healing. 
the more i practiced, the more I recognized light in other living beings. 
this is what my practice does for me 
it supports me to sit with all of the parts, stories, and experiences that make me whole. 
my time on this earth, this body, my BEing
cannot be compartmentalized. 
the moment i understood this 
was the moment the 
yoga began.

  • Sometimes you just have to pause and laugh at yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because life is too short ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and God is too good to worry about the things that won’t matter in 5 years much less 5 minutes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just laugh and let it go. What can you let go of today? 💛⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Lotta y’all goin round in circles playing this game because you don’t want to call a thing a thing.

Healing the BMW requires autonomy from the mother. It requires we be able to see and say what the truth is objectively...even when it stings our tongue.

You have to stop making it about her. That’s been the issue all along.

As black girls we were raised to honor and respect our mother and that meant put her on a unrealistic pedestal.

We honored all she did for us, our family, the community, her sacrifice. All of it.

But as we grew into women we weren’t allowed to adjust our vision and see her as a fallible human.

So we bore the brunt of the pain she caused because there’s no way in hell MY MAMA, MY QUEEN could be so selfish, narcissistic, mean, abusive to ME.

No never, not my mama.

It must be something I’m not doing right.

Let me work harder for her love. Let me change myself. Let me talk to her about it. Let me make a case.

This is just the little girl behavior being acted out in a grown woman. It’s maladjusted and doesn’t work.

Healing starts and ends with you becoming your mother and transferring all that honor and respect to yourself.

And I can’t promise you that your mother will come around and see your gloriousness.

But I can promise you that you will see it.

And when that happens you’ll realize that’s all that ever really mattered.

I love you.

The dance between balance and instability can be the most beautiful nightmare I’ve ever experienced. I could easily bring up the chaos happening in this country or maybe even the world but for me, most times the biggest most hottest chaotic imbalanced mess is taking place right where I lay my head. Home. And don’t even get me started on the family members orrrrrr the death and ingesting of animals, whewww, who has time for that? I’d much rather just stand here on my toes and create a space unknown to many. A space so calm.. so peaceful .. and so full of love that some think it can only exist in heaven. Well that space exists within me. Sometimes it’s hard to find but it’s there. I was born with it. And when the world is attempting to shackle this Queen and snatch her locs from her scalp, I resort there. Take them. Have my locs, have my job, have my car, my money, my tears, my strength. You can have it all and I’ll still be the GODDESS that I am. When it’s all said and done you could never have my peace. It’s far too expensive and my ancestors paid a pretty penny for it so that I could have just enough of it to thrive. So just gon’ head on and do you. Prowl. Stalk. Searching, sneaking and patiently waiting. Havers, haters and stealers of joy. Snatchers of peace. Gon head. Try me. Continue to TRY US! Take what you can. Continue to play victim and cry wolf. There are many things you can have but I know one thing you cannot. Stray from the truth if it helps you sleep easy, bury it in the deepest of pits. But you know the truth. He knows she knows and all of them over there know. You come from me. I gave all of you life. I am a black wombman •

  • EMPOWER — COMMUNITY
...
Today at Oasis Yoga I was definitely in my element.

People showed the fuck up. The space was full of diversity not only in race but shape, size, age, skill and gender. I am so grateful for each of you who by virtue of showing up, empower our work.

Having just hit 3k, I’m also just blown away by our growth — not so much in our numbers but in our strength within them.

You make this work possible and we can only be a reflection of you, so know that when you’re looking at us, you’re actually just seeing all the beauty, power and love in yourself.

We’re here to serve. Can’t wait to see ya’ll again soon :) #ayempower #afroyoga

  • Since I started work, it was difficult keeping up with my yoga training this week. I’ve got to get into the swing of things. What is nice about yogacourse.com is that I can study at my own pace. 🧘🏾‍♀️
◻️Mileage for the week is going to be low, but I’ve gotten in my key workouts. Yesterday, I ran 8 miles at marathon pace. It was a nice way to start the weekend.
◻️My friend @seismiccowink posted on FB content last week that included a quote. It has nothing to do with running, but it resonated with me, so I’m sharing it too.
◻️”You Don't Have to Be Pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother. You don't owe it to your children. You don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked female.” - Erin McKean

◻️I’m training for @laceuprunning #venturamarathon on Oct. 20. I’d love to see you there. Link & discount in my bio.
