One of the the main topics I write about here at LADYHOOD journey is equality. It has bothered me year-after-year that I have not been able to attend the annual Pride Fest, the Equality March or Pride in the Street, in my own city. This year, of course I am busy with my daughter and building my brand and business, but I made a commitment that I had to be there to support my LGBTQIA+ brothers and sisters Continue reading “My First Pride Fest”
Why do you doubt yourself?
Do you not possess the tools to be perfectly you?
From head to toe, each part of you perfectly designed to be an impact in this world.
You are all you need to be to become all that you desire.
You seek to destroy.
Continuously breaking down bridges.
Building barriers, high fences, and walls.
Corruption masked by popular culture.
The media lies covering truth.
Equality means Equality!
Equality means love.
Equality does not me agreeing…
Equality means acceptance of difference.
Equality means speaking out against injustices for those outside of your cohort!
I thought I shared my final Gratitude Journal, but so much has been on my mind, I forgot to post…
Here are the 5 things that I am grateful for today…
At the center of my heart, there is a bubble.
a bubble filled with a dark cloud.
a dark cloud of worry, fear, concern, pain…
pain that floats inside my heart and aches…
aches due to inequality and disparities…
I read a post that completely disturbed me…
I am beyond disappointed, hurt, or fury…
Trying to understand how someone could be so simple-minded, belittling, and ignorant, does not come easy to me. The post, “I will not apologize to faggots”
I read a post yesterday evening that completely disturbed me…
Anyone that reads my blog, knows that I a pro-equality… there are so many advocates that only support the concerns that they feel are important. All advocacy is beneficial to a cause, whether its lead in the water, the #blacklivesmatter movement, poor education systems, or poverty…
But, how can you fight for true equality, if you consider some concerns, and yet dismiss others? That is an alternative fact!
Equality for LGBTQIAP+ is a cause that is just as important as any other, and should be fought for by those with privilege; heterosexuals.
Everyday, I am falling more in love with the woman I am!
Definition of self–love
: love of self:a:conceitb: regard for one’s own happiness or advantage
“After all, taking care of oneself is everything but a selfish act. Indeed, self-love intrinsically involves acceptance of both positive features and those which tend to be perceived as negative. Moreover, it goes without saying that flaws and mistakes are part of our identity and should not be denied or omitted. Shortcomings, along with the characteristics we see as appealing, should thus be accepted.”

“She just wants to be beautiful…She craves attention, she praises an image. She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor…she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away, cause Covergirls don’t cry after their face is made…She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it, or that beauty goes deeper than the surface…You should know your beautiful just the way you are. And you don’t have to change a thing the world could change its heart, no scars to your beautiful…”
