My new series explores the importance of black women creating, defining, and redefining space. It’s critical that black women understand that they are allowed to take up space. Although it doesn’t always feel like we are always allowed to make room for ourselves, my hope is that this imagery can inspire others to create their own space and define it however they choose.

"Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man… It is the comparison that makes you proud: the pleasure of being above the rest. Once the element of competition is gone, pride is gone."
- C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (via alifelivedwell)

"I realized why I was lost. It’s not because I didn’t have a map… It was because I didn’t have a destination."

"Acquire the habit of speaking to God as if you were alone with God. Speak with familiarity and confidence as to your dearest and most loving friend. Speak of your life, your plans, your troubles, your joys, your fears. In return, God will speak to you—not that you will hear audible words in your ears, but words that you will clearly understand in your heart."
- St. Alphonsus Liguori (via beatae-memoriae)

As long as your heart is still beating, it’s never too late. God is a Savior. He will always rescue. No matter how far you’ve gone, He’s ready to start bringing you back.

I was wit it all the way til that last post. 

United States kills millions of people across Latin America, Africa, and Asian continents, but somehow to suggest that the United States killed 3000 of it’s own citizens to give reason for further overseas occupation is beyond the pale?

FOH.
