Mae Carol Jemison (1956-present) Astronaut and Physician ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Jemison’s medical career was obtained in 1981 where she worked as a general practitioner at Los Angeles County University of Southern California. For 2 and a half years she was the Peace Corps medical officer for Sierra Leone and Liberia where she also taught and conducted medical research. After her work as a medical physician she choose to follow her dream and change her career path. Jemison then became the very first African American woman to not only get accepted into NASA’s astronaut training program but the first Black Woman to fly into space in 1992. After a year of training with NASA, she became the first Black Woman to earn the title science mission specialist. Jemison spent a total of 190 hours in space conducting experiments on herself and her crew regarding weightlessness and motion sickness✨ • • • #blackgirlmagic #blackhistorymonth #blackgirljoy #blackfacts #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlbloggers #bloggers #blogs #blackbloggers #blackwriters #blackgirlwriters #blackpoets #blackauthors #blackpolitics #create #cultivate #blackhistory #blackmentalhealth #mentalhealth #blackexperience #black #brown #queens #blackqueen #manifestations #affirmations

From last night, these are my favorite! Black women, all different, all beautiful, all strong & all expressive. Who said all black women are mean? Who said black women aren’t strong & feminine? Who said? #blackgirljoy #fineandfeminine #blackwomensmile #blackgirlmagic #beautyandbrains #photoshootready

Work hard in silence. Let success be the noise.. #jazzellamckeelphotography

Haven’t straightened my hair (professionally) since 2013! • • Thanks @hairbyorlandop ❤️💕 you put in some serious work and I’m so grateful • When I first relaxed my hair it was quite long but never really was healthy...around 2013 was weak and breaking. • So happy to see this much growth! ❤️💕Thanks @_thebeautyboutique

I have to giggle a little bit at the opportunities that God uses to allow me to mercifully and gently heal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have my Tribe Called Quest Award Tour all figured out. I am excited about bringing natural solutions to my friends and family and sharing wellness with the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What happens when panic ensues? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What happens when, just a few hours before I leave, my husband confirms he has the flu? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What happens when driving at night is a source of stress and I have hundreds of miles to go—alone? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have learned to manage my anxiety and debilitating panic attacks through therapy, mindfulness, prayer, and eliminating clutter (things and people) to get to a place where I can function. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be frank, it has not been an easy road. I am honored to know that I have been chosen to share in ways with people who too may be in their most vulnerable spots—at their wits end with chronic health conditions, managing emotional wellness, or just wanting a more simple way to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have chosen joy today. I have also chosen 2 oils that got me up the turnpike, my go tos when I come off as aloof, are really my “snap back Adrienne blends” that allow me to just simply show up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So today, I share with joy, not just this story, but my ways in which I heal and hope you decide to heal just a little bit too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh hayyyyy Pittsburgh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #whatpanicattack #blackgirljoy #roadtrip #diamondclub2019 #blackwellness #therapy #bergamot #abottleofactright #anxiety #panicattacks

“Don’t touch my hair when it’s the feelings I wear. Don’t touch my soul when it’s the rhythm I know. Don’t touch my crown. They say the vision I’ve found. Don’t touch what’s there, when it’s the feelings I wear.

We thought this was her hair😳 She is still a gorgeous South Sudanese beauty @nykhor 🇸🇸 🍫😍✨ - “Be bold. Be strong. Be sassy. To be young gifted and dark skin in America has been my struggle since the day I decided to be beautiful. We are all beautiful, not because we are perfect human beings, not because we are superior to others, but because in our imperfections we are such unique riches and gifts to the world. It takes tremendous amount of courage to live your truth above the judgments and challenges but it’s important to look deeper in any situations. Just because something seems a certain way doesn’t mean it really is, things may not be what they appear to be.

I think married bliss looks good on me.

My special guest and I unpack some of the more painful aspects of romantic and non-romantic relationships and why it’s important to take care of your own negative energy to avoid becoming a toxic waste dispenser to those in your orbit!

Yesterday I got denied an opportunity I thought I had in the bag... I shed a few tears and then I remembered “God aint bring me this far to leave me” #wegood #redirectedforasetup #blackgirljoy

“I was sitting, doing the normal weekend, ‘day off stuff’ you do when you have some time - have a beer, watch a game. However, that’s not quite how it all went down. My roommate ran in and was like ‘yo, think we gotta new neighbor.’ I didn’t pay him any mind, until he was like “this one is a straight up Picasso, Mona Lisa, (he paused) she asked me what I thought of the area.” I cut him off, he can go on and on, damn motor mouth. I poked my head out the door to get a quick glimpse, mostly to shut him up so I could finish the game. But then, I was caught off guard, it was her, the woman I saw at the museum. She was there looking around the courtyard, vibing. She looked like she stepped out of some future world and was just checking this reality out for a quick one. She caught my gaze, damn this is the second time, say something- so I just shouted, “it’s a great complex, no complaints here.” I could’ve probably said something more clever, but she smiled, and wow that smile was like the best most sweetest honey filled, ice cold Lipton tea in the middle of a hot as hell desert, with no where to run kind of heat. She was the heat. Then she turned, with no response, no second glances and left, again.’ - Anonymous . . . Beautiful photography by Celeste Tallbot-Rivera . . .

Banging your head against the wall burns approximately 150 calories per hour; which is about 15 potato chips.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes we spend so long stuck on something in our biz instead of just asking for help, and for a payoff of 15 chips it's just not worth the bother.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Recently, I spent a nauseatingly large amount of time trying to set up a makeshift video studio in my bedroom.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It made me want to drop everything and go live in the Sahara Desert.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you banging your head against the wall for at the moment? .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #maxiesays #youareworthy #embraceyourbody #daretobe #learntoloveyourself #momhustle #motherhustler #sephoragirls #glowgetter #getpumped⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #protectyourenergy #bealight #spreadlight #blacklove #blackgirlpower⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackgirlskillingit #boundaries #healthyboundaries #lifeadvice #blackgirljoy #soultribe #energyflow #growthroughwhatyougothrough #raiseyourfrequency #allthingsarepossible #innerstrength #abundantlife #spiritualquotes #spiritjunkies

#femmefriday: *ahem* BLERD MEANS BLACK NERD. That's all. There is no other meaning. The words "people of color" and Black people are NOT interchangeable. If something is entitled Blerd, then it should CENTER BLACK PEOPLE. If you mean to include other people of color, than say that. WORDS MEAN THINGS. I have seen SO MANY people try and shift the term blerd into an "inclusive" phrase. No. NO. Some things are just for us. I don't care what Black person told you, a non-black person, that you could be a Blerd. They were wrong. This insidious type of Black erasure grates on my nerves. . . .

Guess my next hair color? took these dreads out 😭. I just couldn’t take like all the itching. I mean I don’t think the crochet caused me to itch but my hair was so long when it was 🌽 rowed, I had to cover the open rows with my hair so when it itches, I couldn’t scratch and it was so annoying 😭😭. But I hope my next style you guys will love 🤩😍😍.
