|Real Talk| I promised myself that when I got older I would never have to prove myself to anyone again. Life was no math problem where I had to show my work in order for the answer to be accepted. But these days, social media requires us to show pictures or it didn’t happen. And although it was fun at first, I grew tired. I wanted to stop. But God forbid I’m not flaunting my life in case someone thinks that I’m not ok. That something is wrong. That I have nothing to offer. That I’m not worth their time. So I continued. That is until I looked in the mirror and remembered the promise I made that little girl years ago. I promised her freedom. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ So these days, I spend more time doing the work rather then trying to show y’all. I’m doing the unglamorous side of self care. The clean up after the party. I’m celebrating how far I have come, but I’m not gonna pretend that there isn’t still things that don’t need to be dealt with. I won’t stay so busy sharing #aboutlastnight highlights that I forget that there is still work to be done. Now I’m not knocking this space. There is still so much to be appreciated which is why I’m still here. But sometimes it seems like as a society we are more concerned about being in each other’s newsfeed then we are about being free. I’m still learning the balance. Of showing my work and allowing my answer to stand on its own.

This is a version of the Sip & Paint I did for my bday. Made me feel good to see sisters sharing bottles and art together. Not sure how pricey this place is, but if you’ve got a group of 3-6 and you want to get out of the rut of movies and/or dinner, it’s incredibly cool. #wineanddesign #dekalb #artmatters #blackgirlmagic✨#blacklivesmatter #blackjoy

Be fierce. Be bold. Be vulnerable. Be humble. Be unapologetically YOU. Your legacy matters. Your story is empowering. . . . #alreadyfly #alreadydope #perfectlymade #blackjoy #blacklove #becauseblackwomenarelit #becauseblackwomen #givethanks #gratitudemanifests #loveyourjourney #strength #power #linkinbio

That face you make when your body remembers what rest feels like.

Women’s March 2018. From Chicago, to DC, to New York, to Rome. But let us, in our fight for social justice, not forget the words of Emma Lazarus “until we are all free, we are none of us free.” This year, as last year, the Women’s March organizers have struggled to respond to the needs of intersectional identities and have perpetuated the marginalization of women of color and trans women. Let us use the momentum of these moments to celebrate the diversity of women and have tough conversations so that no group of voices is left unheard. #movementmoments

When your bestie meets a bestie at the Women's Day March ... haha...@abebafitzgerald @freespeak84 #issavibe #dance #boomshake #blackjoy #sunny #drums #youth #blackyouth #bayarea

🚨🚨!!!READ BELOW!!!🚨🚨In celebration of the Women’s March, I chose today to claim my own sovereignty. Two weeks ago I contemplated ending my own life. The overwhelm of years of untreated and unacknowledged pain and depression brought me closer to to the edge than I had ever been before. I allowed myself to be silenced by guilt, shame and an internal dialogue on repeat telling myself I am not enough. I did all I could to forget my pain; meditated in silence for days, slept with strangers, drank myself to the point of blackout, said yes when I meant no, isolated myself, travelled the world, seeked acceptance in people who didn’t appreciate me. I trained those around me to believe I was okay when I wasn’t. A life unlived made me forget who I truly am. So allow me to reintroduce myself; I’m Denise. I am a sex-positive pansexual FREE Woman; a living example of my ancestors hard work and dedication. I like dancing barefoot, cracking jokes, caring for friends, feeling the sun on my bronze skin, jumping off rocks, singing my heart out, talking to strangers, laughing my ass off, digging my hands in the dirt, making medicine, painting my sorrows, cooking yummy food, swimming in wild waters, sleeping on the earth, hugging friends and most important of all; speaking my truth. Maybe this will inspire someone else to do the same. ✌🏾

The Compassion Experience is out in the world doing amazing things for those who need it the most. Grateful I had the opportunity to hear the stories of Olive, Kiwi, and Carlos. Truly Amazing and Life Changing. • • • • • #empowerment #blackandwell #browngirlfearless #blackgirlmagic #melaninpoppin #myblackisbeautiful #brownskin #blackgirlsreign  #girlboss #blackgirlsrock #selflove  #blackisbeautiful #missblackusa #blackqueensmovement #naturallyshesdope #blackjoy #blackswhoblog #northcarolina #charlotte #clt #queencity #raleigh #greensboro #hope #education

Film came back from my trip! I lost quite a bit of footage due to film damage, but there’s still an abundance of gems to share. here’s day 2 with @blvcksmurff . On this day we kicked it at his house, sprinted through the city like we were kids with no particular destination, visited Jamestown, and ate some dope ass food. #blackjoy #phillytoghana2017

We can't always help the way we've been brought up or certain circumstances, but what we can do is make decisions that'll allow us to live in a way where our past can no longer define us. Sometimes life just hits you hard and some things you just can't help, but ultimately it's up to us where we go from here! What choices have you made that have positively affected your life? Comment below!

. at the end of the day, we’re all just trying to do our best + live our best + most fulfilling life. _ 🖊 #callmewilsar #notetome #bebetterthanbefore

Behind the scenes at Southern SAWG. I am enjoying meeting all these seasoned black farmers who are extra "woke" and ready to fight to protect their land, ag practices and knowledge. Got me thinking about moving to Alabama or Atlanta! #blackexcellence #blackness #southernsawg #sawg #aglife #futurefarmer #farmers #gardengoddess #texastotennessee #itsstillcold #blackgirlmagic #blackjoy
