You can’t pour from an empty cup
You can’t even pour from a full cup
You have to pour from the overflow
The FULL part is for you
The overflow is for everyone else.
At times we pour so much into everything & everyone else we forget about
Numero Uno... Ourselves 🙋🏾♀️ So many titles we hold... as a mom, wife, entrepreneur, sister.. etc it’s okay to be all those things & more but make sure you are FULL & have an abundance of overflow so you can physically, emotionally and mentally be in a position to pour into someone.
Stop depleting yourself...
Even on a plane they say in case of an emergency 🚨 put the mask on first then help someone else.
My mother showed up at my doorstep yesterday carrying one of my tote bags. When I jokingly asked her where she got it from, she stated, "Some little girl online." Well, I invite you to shop this girl's online store today at The Trini Gee for bags, drinkware, and other things that will tickle your afrocentric fancy. #thetrinigee#totebags#tote#totes#totebag#blackwomen#afroart#melaninmagic

My mind and body are feeling so good after a few changes. Sleeping earlier, having regular nutritious meals, exercising more and having time for everything I want to do during the day with CALENDAR BLOCKING! "To Do" lists are a waste of time because nothing is prioritised so you can put things off. Learning how to be more time productive on @schmittastic YT channel seriously made me re-think about how I was spending my "time" 👌🏾 #gamechanger
This crew of artists are so dope. These ladies represent with love and a whole lot of power and beautiful words to inspire. All I know is that when @toniblackman said sing, I had to come up with something to flow with the tight rhymes that @ashiraislove was blessing the people at Restoration Rocks with over this groove. I was blessed by being on the stage with them because it was so different. Rhymes for Aretha. It was cold outside but the warmth that was flowing on the stage made it feel like the fourth or July. Dopeness! Thank you @stuartthomas40 for the footage. @nelloluchi@polaryss@firstname.lastname@example.org
Who knew that me wearing my Fro out the past few days would be helping other women break out of their shells. Not just those who wear their hair in their natural state, but someone who wanted to wear pink lipstick and was afraid....someone who wanted to wear a crop top and was afraid.....someone who wanted to wear lashes and was afraid....Lawd some one else has been helped b/c of my personal freedom to just let myself be, unapologetically 💜.
Listen....I’m going to continue to be me. I will continue to share and encourage, because even if I don’t hear it all the time, someone reading/watching is being helped!! Come on thru God! •
Y’all be great, be kind, be authentic...and know that just being who you are can help another person! Happy Monday!!!
People used to always have something to say about my weight gain and when I finally worked hard and lost it I thought they would applaud or congratulate me but the opposite happen they started to ask what was wrong with me that I was losing too much weight saying I look too skinny and lost my Booty🤦🏾♀️🙄this made me realize YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE 💁🏾♀️💁🏾♀️ they will always have something to say so IF YOU DECIDE TO LOSE WEIGHT YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT FOR YOURSELF❗️PERIOD ❗️ :
side note if you have something negative to say keep it to yourself because you could really mess with someone’s head\motivation and make them think their hard work was a waist of time

Words cannot begin to express how proud I am of this girl. I am proud the video went viral but I'm even more proud of her MESSAGE.
From @celaiwest - Today, I did something I've never done before. I wore my natural UNSTRETCHED hair on the runway...during New York Fashion Week. Just hoping to change the standard of beauty one runway step at a time... 🖤
Opening for the amazing designer @ugochi_iwuaba at @thesocietyfashionweek 💗
