My first blogging segment/meet-and-greet was this past Saturday during the KC Natural Hair Expo, and it was a wonderful turnout- thanks to you all!
Don't worry, I'm sure it's completely normal. So many times I've felt like I'm in the middle of a road, and I know I need to run away, but my feet won't move. And I'm wondering, what do I need to do to get moving?
My name is Shakera Scott and I am from Kansas City, Mo. I work for Mazuma Credit Union as a Universal Agent (Personal Banker & Teller).
Hello all! My name is Breora Page. I’m originally from Denver, CO. but I currently live in Kansas City, MO. I am a Graduate Assistant and I am currently pursuing my Masters of Science of Counseling Psychology degree.
Asiah Henderson here! Chicago native and professional chef (in the making). To me, self-love means you have respect for yourself and confidence in both your outer and inner beauty. It's important to have because you can't succeed in love, or life without it.
My name is Jordan Cook, but I'm a sucker for people who call me Jord. I've lived in Virginia, Oklahoma, and Missouri, and now reside in Fayetteville, NC. You know, where they bang for the money (Cole World). Currently, I work as a restaurant server and a client service coordinator at a veterinary practice. On the side you'll catch me in my haven behind my 1930s ROYAL, hand-typing anything from poetry, to love letters, to follow ups for job applications. Snail mail til the death of me.
I'm not going to lie. I've been unmotivated for some time now, but not like completely unmotivated, because I know that will cause me to sink into a deep depression- but unmotivated to where it's taking more time than it should for me to see my dreams progress. Honestly, life is just getting in the way. And by life, I mean worries and anxieties. I find myself coping with my current financial state, while battling with my hopes and dreams- because truth be told, my finances are not matching up with the future endeavors I plan to ensue.
See, I'm a planner. So it's hard for me to say I'm going to do something, without first planning my steps to get there. I can't blindly walk into anything. I mean, I can- but it causes anxiety for me.
This past Friday at midnight, Solange released her album, A Seat At The Table, and two visuals from the album ("Cranes In The Sky" and "Don't Touch My Hair") soon after. And they are absolutely beautiful, and further prove Solange to be the face of carefree black girls of the world!
Today marks Labor Day, which will soon mean that the temperature will be dropping, layers will be worn, and warm drinks will be back in season! Here are a few things that I'm looking forward to in the fall season.
Let's stay positive this summer '16! Positive vibes only because we do not have time to become too relaxed and unmotivated. So I'm sharing some ways that I stay positive.
