you’re gonna have those days, where it seems like time takes eternity. where it seems no one wants to be bothered with you. youre gonna have days where you cant stand the way your skin folds over your bones. You cant stand how you have the urge to cry. You feel like youre falling apart.
don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
be intentional about your desires.

Someone used that describe another’s worth.
And that is something fantastic. To be so big, and take up so much space. Just wow…
You are colossal. You are infinite.
There is a universe inside of you.
you all need to stop settling
stop putting yourself in the presence of people who make you feel confused or less-than
don’t try to salvage a friendship if they make you feel like shit
don’t try to get into the brain of someone who’s closing themselves off to you
don’t try to start…

This part that India said on OWN I can relate to right now. It moved me to tears. Thank you!
***Soul Sunday… Everyone should watch this clip or read this quote from it***
"What makes me LOL the most to myself is that I would let anyone talk me out of my own intuition… …I was scared, because my mission & my passion I put it in someone else’s hands. And I put it in their hands, because I thought they knew better than I did on how to get me there. I had so much respect for life & what god has put in my heart that if I put it in your hands , you’re going to help me get there and do this thing that god put in my heart. And so whatever they would say, I would do even when I felt they were wrong. And it was out of fear, cause I felt that I couldn’t navigate my own life . But now what I know that I didn’t know then is that I am responsible for myself and I can do it. The universe does rise up to meet you wherever you are. " - India Arie.

We should teach young boys to respect women, but we should also teach young girls to respect women. Women should not see each other as enemies, but as allies. Stop telling young girls that the best they can be is “not like other girls”.
