Happy 23rd Blossom Beautiful! 🌻

As I walked to the train today, I realized how blessed and happy I am with my life. Girl, your last 22 chapters have been through highs and lows, but I am so deeply proud of the woman it has carved you to be. I walked to the train with a smile on my face because today is the beautiful day this seed was planted into the universe and now this sunflower marks 23. Year 23 will be nothing short than a miracle year. Blossom 22 conclusively was the year of following my heart and trusting my inner judgment as Brianna herself. I don’t know what blossom 23 will be the year of, but if I had to predict, it will have to be turning passion into realities and learning that doubt is the death of all success. Ohhhhh look at your girl coming through with the deep messages, “doubt is the death of all success.” I’m gonna have to keep that as a daily affirmation. You all can definitely use this as a message in your life just don’t steal my quote as your own, that’s not cute.

To the past 22 blossoms, thank you for all that you have been to me and engraved in me. I am honored to be who I am walking into 23.

Happy Birthday Beautiful 1/10/19

20 Somethings

Prayin’ the 20 somethings don’t kill me, kill me – SZA

The phase in which we feel we are old enough to have it all together yet young enough to not have it all together. It’s the phase in which we are so lost in trying to find ourselves while trying to be the best daughter/son, sister/brother, friend, employee, student, mom/dad, and more.

Per usual, older generations complain about the 20 somethings of this generation.

“You guys disregard tradition. You feel you don’t have to get a job and work hard.”

“We all had to work jobs we didn’t like to make it and to support our family”

“You think living in your own little world is going to last.”

“I would’ve love to be a ______, but I didn’t have time. I did what I had to do.”

….I’m sorry, but I’m just a tad bit addled. What is wrong with living in my world of happiness?

Who says I have to work a job for 25 years that I don’t like? Society?

I will never put off what truly makes me happy for anything. When God blesses me with a family, I will support them with doing what I love and with what makes me truly happy. Tradition is how each individual perceives it. Our generation of 20 somethings have decided that working a 9-5 does not make them happy and that there is a different way of making things happen.

I LOVE and ADMIRE the 20 somethings that are so free and creative with everything that they do! Leaving their 9-5 steady job to say they want to travel the world to learn and teach yoga or whatever it is that makes them happy. Sometimes the “I don’t care mentality” is not a negative thing.

I don’t think we understand how deep some of our opinions can cut into the mind of others. We need to learn to mind what we say to each other at times. Not everyone has such thick skin to disregard the opinions of others. Your personal opinion may have swayed a multi-millionaire from taking the risk of doing what made them happy. I, myself, am learning to think about what words I allow to come out when people ask for my opinion on decisions. I never want to say something that will halt someone from achieving their dreams.

Sending all love to the 20 somethings just trying to make things happen the best they can. To those searching for themselves, finding themselves, healing, setting goals, achieving goals, and being unapologetically 20 something! Let the happiness in your heart guide your way.

I AM READY FOR LOVE

I am ready to allow myself to be loved unconditionally.

I deserve the love I seek. There are no expectations to receive this type of love from anyone but myself.

Not to be misunderstood, I have given myself love and affection. But I have not given myself the love I DESERVE. I deserve to smile 24/7 until my cheeks cramp up. Laugh until I am gasping for air with tears rolling down my face and people think I need medical help. Dance until my legs are numb. Sing loves songs to myself, allowing myself to believe I have the voice of H.E.R. Allow my heart to melt within itself when I think of me.

A love like this does exist and I will hand it over to myself, wrapped neatly with sunflower bows on top.

I am allowing myself to love my awkwardness. The fact that I talk too much and don’t all at once. Love that I am a afrofuturist that loves to wear sweats everyday, listen to trap music while meditating and doing yoga, laugh at myself when I am alone, give my all in everything that I do, demand respect from anyone that enters my circle of life, talk to myself, have goals higher than one could ever think of, think too deeply into everything, learning how to handle my emotions, and that my flaws are my best qualities because they’re not truly flaws at all.

The world doesn’t revolve around me but my world does.
This is not to disregard the existence of others or to give all my love to myself only.

“They say true love’s the greatest weapon”

-Beyoncé

No one can ever love me the way I do. For they don’t understand me like I do.

And that, I am okay with.

I am ready for love.
