Just a place to visualize the next 5 - 75 years

Tryna get back to this before sweater season.

“Once we begin to celebrate what our body does rather than obsessing on how it looks, we start to appreciate our body as an instrument rather than an ornament.”

Absolutely true. I’m just sad I had to go through pregnancy and childbirth before I realized that. So much of my energy was wasted on hating and mistrusting my body

Stop putting yourself down or downplaying your greatness. Don’t be surprised if someone finds you attractive. You need to be thinking why the hell they wouldn’t? If you don’t champion yourself who the hell else will?

 If you don’t champion yourself who the hell else will?

 If you don’t champion yourself who the hell else will?

 If you don’t champion yourself who the hell else will?

“Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants to hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.”

Absolutely, positively no time for dating lazy men.

Photo Series: “Diner en Blanc Kigali - 2014 Edition”.

On August 10th this year, Kigali’s scenic Acacia Gardens was a sea of crisp white as it played host to the city’s annual ‘Diner en Blanc’ event.

Currently in its third year, Rwanda became the first country in Africa to take part in this global event in 2012. Global Diner en Blanc events were put together to foster friendship, elegance and sense of community amongst those who attend. This year, as it seeks to be integrated into Rwanda’s broader tourism agenda, the event attracted over 500 people hailing from both African countries and other foreign states.

See more amazing photographs of the event here!

I’ve begun writing. In the hills of Costa Rica. May God and my ancestors bless the process. 

The great endeavor enters the next stage.

In retrospect now that it’s been years later, I have so much respect for the one who used to do this. Simple shit.  #repost
