My niece @kaliyah_njeri posted this the other day and spoke a truth that couldn’t have been spoken any better than she did!
Now this is my truth!
I’ve heard this throughout my childhood and teenage life almost everyday. The days I didn’t hear it was probably because instead they whispered about it. It hurt and I did all I knew how to do to change it because I thought it would make them stop. Even when I did change it they still found something else they didn’t like about me. At 17 years old I accepted the fact that no matter what I do there are people out there who just won’t like me for several reasons. Some of them don’t even make sense/ aren’t valid, and if most of them got to know me for who I am what they see wouldn’t even matter. I love and accept who I am at my biggest and my smallest because I know who I am and Whose I am. My inside and outside match very well because I am beautiful either way. I wasn’t created to be a stick figure nor everyone’s “It Girl”. Those who truly care and know me for me accept me either way so why should what insecure and unhappy people have to say matter? I know what I need and want to work on so your extra comments and opinions are a waste of time, breath, and energy. I love Kemba Ayana Brown regardless! ❤️💜
Eventually I had to stop fighting, cease from saying No, and surrender completely to God. What He is requesting of me is better than what I want for myself. Lord I trust Your Plan!
Stop fighting and surrender completely to God. Release the grip you have on your life and let God take control. What He has for you much better than what you want for yourself. ❤️💜
The illest, the flyest, the fastest, the best who ever did it! This lady inspired/inspires me as a woman overall! Go for what you’re passionate about and love and never let up!
I’m tryna look amazing like Flo Jo! 😉
Be appreciative for what you have because you have been blessed with more than someone else out there. Don’t complain; be grateful. ❤️💜
Give yourself permission to celebrate and enjoy life! Loosen up and experience life’s blessings! Don’t be so intense lovelies! ❤️💜
God has a plan for each of us, and no one else is meant to understand it. There will be those who support you, however, they do not understand the journey. Nor should they because this is a mission God has created specifically for you. Don’t give up lovelies just continue to Trust God and His plan! ❤️💜
Let’s be honest and open about the mistakes we’ve made in life. The only way to learn from our wrongs is to be truthful about them. God wants to help us grow, so let’s be open about our flaws and weakness lovelies! ❤️💜 By doing so we could also help someone else.
2 Corinthians 4:2
The Cosby Show, what has long been considered the greatest black sitcom of all time, celebrates its 30th anniversary in two weeks. That the show’s legendary run is marked by a return to a more diverse television landscape this fall seems fitting: NBC, ABC, and FOX, along with other networks, will debut a variety of shows that cast minority actors in lead roles (several are women of color). This push for more nuanced programming brings to mind the 1990s, a decade known for its rich portrayal of black life through shows like Living Single and Roc. Here, a completely indisputable ranking of black sitcoms that aired between 1990 and 1999.
