Reset the Mindset

A Black King and his Prince.

Black Kings and Queens. Its time we DE-condition and Recondition. We are Raising little Kings and Queens who will eventually grown up and start to raise their own. So why do we rip them of their little hopes, dreams, achievements, and goals by calling them something that would be anything less. I’ve heard parents call their kids everything but Kings and Queens. Maybe on social media, but not to their faces. This is conditioning them to settle for these terms from EVERYONE, especially if their hearing it from their own parents.

I want to start a movement. a #ResetTheMindset MOVEMENT.

Black Kings, its time we erase the “lil nigga” and start reminding our lil PRINCE’s that they will one day be KINGS too. Black Queens, Its time we start reminding our lil PRINCESSE’s that they will one day be QUEENS as well. Lets STOP conditioning them FOR the streets and start conditioning them for a world OUTSIDE the streets. They can be anything they want to be and take any route they please when they are of age. But as children, we should condition them to be the BEST that they can be, and view themselves as future Kings and Queens. Changing the world, Showing their MAGICAL MELANIN powers, and Making us PROUD to be BLACK.

#ResetTheMindset

What am I going to do…like literally?

Good morning, afternoon, evening, where ever you are. Where I am its 7 AM and i’m literally up thinking about my life and my “purpose” early this morning. I’m at that weird age and stage of my life where you feel like your just “here” and haven’t really found out what it is that I want to do with my life. Like really, have you ever just thought to yourself “What in the hell am I here for?”. You have your photographers, your rappers, your singers, your fashionistas, your make-up artist, the list goes on. But where do I fit?

Lately I’ve been slowly learning more and more about myself. My likes and dislikes, my little hobbies that i’m interested in (like blogging) but I fall off here and there *sigh*, again WTH am I here for!? I know what your thinking “you don’t know your likes and dislikes already”? Listen, when you get to age 26 you realize those things you once loved and couldn’t get enough of, well you will get enough of and the taste buds in fact DO change.

Am I writer? I mean don’t get me wrong I was never the person in school getting super excited when the teacher said “Are you guys excited for the new topic we’re writing about this week?”…..

But I’m almost certain I do enjoy writing about what “I” like to write about. I also have a niche for music. I was a singer for almost all my life in church, chorus and even was in a show choir!

I know right. Yes, I was in a full blown show choir for 3 years of my high school career and I absolutely loved every single year of it because I enjoyed performing! But I could never see my ready to be 2 babies deep, full grown woman (add like 40 more pounds from high school), with a whole husband and all performing on a stage again. So yet again here I am, WTH am I here for?!

I’m seriously perplexed. Like I feel so overwhelmed and feeling like i’m loosing time because I haven’t figured it out yet. I’m seeing everyone doing SOMETHING and yet I feel like I’m doing nothing, and don’t get me started on what I’ve been told. “Oh your a mother your doing A LOT of something” or “You are the woman of the house your doing something good everyday”. Yea, this maybe true but I want to do something for myself. No mom likes to hear about how shes “Such a MOM” like we don’t already know!

Sometimes us “Moms” want to be viewed as something else other then being a mom and/or wife all the time. What about me? Without the obvious titles, without the everyday chores that most of the time are overlooked and under appreciated because its seriously “WHAT I’M SUPPOSE TO DO”! I want to find my purpose, what is it that I can do that would be viewed as unique and awesome about my own self? Well on to my journey of finding my “purpose” until next time….
