Have a relaxing and safe break to all my Bing students, we all need the rest! #SApro #alwaysbusy #CSAM #staycation “We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you would threaten the man.”

Loved this collab!!! #naturalhair #curlyhair #SAPro #AdvisorDuties #AlwaysBusy #fortheculture Honoring the original first people... Happy Indigenous Peoples Day! #rewritinghistory #indigenouspeoplesday Today's #ResistenceTool: Find your Anchor.  Today I woke up with that I don't want to move, it's just way too much feeling.  Every day another fight breaks out-- it's overwhelming.  And then I read some inspiring words, watched a few hot dance numbers and moved.  The battle will rage before it is won, to stand firm find at least one person, place, hobby or thing that helps you stay grounded and going strong.  It's ok to laugh; to cry tears of joy; or to get your twerk on-- yes I said it, twerk that thang gal! #Resist #resistencetools #Resistance #resistence #myblackisbeautiful You did that, @imsojreed! ・・・
#forthepeoplechallenge #rp #myblackisbeautiful Today's resistance tool: No matter what you do, what you say, and how you do or say it -- some will not like it.  Do it any way.  Some people, deep down, are selfish; and they may or may not realize. They are only down for the movement if it goes the way they want, and when asked to let someone else take the lead, shared that their perception on the message/conversation may be warped or shared that there's another way to get it done, they throw in the towel-- because its not about the movement, it's about what's best for them.  Well, let them walk away, because the movement may be better for it! Then, sometimes people need to be critical because the movement itself has become an act of one.  So, stop and process- then listen, learn, adapt and push forward.  It's not about you, and it never was! #resist #resistance #resistancetools #teachthebabies #fortheculture #myblackisbeautiful
