Self love is:

overflowing, reflective, unapologetic, contagious love.

Three wrap up points from 8 secrets from 8 curvy women who love their bodies:
  • Every body is a good body
  • Health is holistic, and mental health is a huge part of holistic health
  • Self-hate is an ideology that can be eradicated through a practice of self-love

Dear standbyers, uninformed folks and 'colorblind' advocates:

Anti-oppression is an ongoing conversation. Our stories, our experiences, our identities are what shape us into who we are and are waiting to be shared/revealed/exposed to the general, ignorant public/ naive members of society.

Are you ready to listen?

We will be idle, no more! Be informed - check your privilege - mobilize & act!

"It is no longer my job to enlighten you. To quote what you so often tell ethnic communities, "It's time for you to step up to the plate, take responsibility, and stop taking what I have earned," my integrity, my dignity."


My Racist Encounter at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Love & social justice---always,

Words of a radical feminist:

I will not be shamed.
I will not be blamed.
I will not be looked down upon. 
I will not be perceived as someone's belonging.
I will not be influenced by patriarchal standards.
I will not be deprived of fair treatment and humanity.

I (we) need feminism because society/dominant culture believes they are entitled to dictate how women should look/wear/do to their bodies and use shame/blame/ownership & other patriarchal behaviors.

My (our) body(ies) is(are) NOT an apology. I (we) should be able to openly embrace my (our) shape(s), build(s) and (our) outer beauty without hesitation or fear of being shamed.

I will continue to love, adore and explore the comfort of my body, endlessly --- and I encourage you to do so too.

EMPOWERMENT to you feminists, pro-feminists and allies of femininity.

Dear National Policy Institute comprised of white supremacists,

This whole system revolves around you, ---- and you want MORE?

This is NOT okay.
White Supremacy is NOT okay.
The racist books that were published on the 'National Policy Institute's' behalf, are ABSOLUTELY NOT okay.

During finals week,

I listen to every song that makes me laugh, makes me cry, helps me reflect and helps me to say Goodbye.

Dear silly boy that messed with my heart, even surpassing the negative amount of times I should have allowed you to do so,

I'm absolutely sure this song (and every song per se) is a reminder of your incompetence in our relationship. It's very much on point with your whole ego and your forgetfulness and that awful school dance and your unwillingness ---until--- oops, well when it's way too late to win me back you make that a connection.

Though, this does a lot more justice by displaying your dull life in a kind of upbeat rhythmic pattern:

"My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like uh, uh, uh, uh
...I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she's dancing with another man."

Yes, yes and yes sir.
You should've and could've but you didn't.
&Now I'm gone and your just a memory --- a horrid one at most --- imprinted in my life.

If we were to ever depart functionally, I would say this much too you:
 All I had was love to send, you've done me wrong and so this thing that we had has been put to an end.

Now to end fully complete with my own empowering song:
I'll go ahead and just smile.
