It when you let your heart healed. You can finally be free to create the life you wanted. To many of us, carry to much weight with our emotion that was attached to the past. The past is gone. You can't change the circumstances. All you can do is change yourself. Because as you change, the universe reflect back to you. The type of person you attract into your life. Having your emotion trap inside your heart is not good. It will keep you from creating the life you want. The universe will bring you the circumstances to let your healed. And that where real growth begins 😊😊😊😉
Richard Allen, Richard Brock, Jack Yates and Elias Dibble purchased the land that they would turn into Emancipation Park in 1872, commemorating the end of slavery and initially used as an annual site for #juneteenth celebrations in the #thirdward of #houston ! These four black men were all former slaves and bought this land in just 7 years after the end of chattel slavery - if that's not self determination I don't know what is! •
I saw the park today, complete w a big capital renovation by the city, on a tour with Mackenzie (thanks again!!) from @projectrowhouses I know this park isn't perfect, that this capital project has been delayed and delayed, but I will hold it in my mind and heart as a way to bring together history, liberation, self determination and space for people to engage in joy and conflict. •
I also learned today of the Emancipation Economic Development Council. Go to EmancipationHouston.org and learn more. Thank you @ryandennistaylor for taking some time to share in community with me. The work y'all are doing is the motivation I needed to worry less and work more. To generosity and honesty always.
When you have pain. You have powers! Though, to much could Destroy you. Don't let it Destroy you. You know? I would like to say. That you have far more potential than you realize. Don't let pain hold you back. Push through the noise that inside your mind. 😄😄😄😍
#BlkNz365 - We celebrate our history 365 days a year (plus some)
We acknowledge Dr. Teresa Mitchell, owner of Total Care Pharmacy. The first black owned pharmacy in Baconton, GA. Mitchell is a practicing pharmacist for over 20 years and is excited about being a leader and entrepreneur in her community.
Often during Black History Month there is a lot of focus on the same narrative of history. The all too familiar “I have a dream, Rosa Park sat down on the bus, maybe edgy mention of Malcolm X being the antagonist to our revolution" kind of history. Black Noize isn’t with that version of Black history packaged in a neat little box and stuffed into literally the shortest month of the year. Instead we challenge our social
media family to make #BlackNoize 365 days of the year.
Feel free to DM us to submit your picture raising your right fist in the air. Be sure to provide us with your social media info so we can tag you. Black Power. Black Love. BLACK NOIZE!!! #BlkNz#blackgirlmagic#supportblackbusiness#shopblack#georgia#baconton#selfdetermination#BlackPower
📰📜Negro Organization Society Motto
The motto for the Negro Organization Society, “Better Schools / Better Health / Better Homes / Better Farms,” is printed on the back cover of a program for a conference held by the society in Richmond on November 6 and 7, 1913. Among the speakers for the program were Booker T. Washington, the local businesswoman Maggie Lena Walker, Virginia governor William Hodges Mann, and Richmond mayor George Ainslie.
The Negro Organization Society was a grassroots advocacy association that stressed community self-improvement for African Americans in Virginia during the Jim Crow era. Founded in 1912 at the Hampton Institute by Robert Russa Moton, its motto was “Better Schools, Better Health, Better Homes, Better Farms.” Pursuit of these four goals was considered essential to the protection and welfare of black citizens, especially in rural areas where the great majority of Virginia’s African Americans lived. Over the years, the organization’s actions shifted from building schools to improving education by accrediting more institutions and improving teacher pay. By the 1950s, when the Negro Organization Society had begun to dissolve, the fight for African American civil rights had largely shifted from community and regional organizers to the court system.
Robert Russa Moton was one of the most prominent black educators in the United States in the first decades of the twentieth century. After graduating from the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute (later Hampton Institute and now Hampton University) in Hampton, Virginia, in 1890, he served as the school’s commandant of cadets from 1891 until 1915. He was a close friend of Booker T. Washington, the founding principal of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, and the two shared a conservative vision of race relations. #NegroOrganizationSociety#RobertRussaMorton#RosaDixonBowser#MarionEDavis#bookertwashington#Virginia#Hampton#agriculture#JimCrow#Farming#BlackFarming#blackeconomics#Cooperativeeconomics#SelfDetermination#WeGovernOurselves#selfeffeciency#richmondvirginia#EducateAgitateLiberate#DescentHousing#HealthCare#newafrikan77wordpress
Oh how this speaks to me!
I have the hardest time saying no and I overbook myself constantly. I simply don't take the time to sit still and give myself a moment's peace. I think my 'mom brain' is always in multitasking mode so I take on too much. I am learning ...slowly I might add 🤔, that I need to respect myself more. I need me time and I need to quit over exerting myself on things that might not matter. And I don't always need to be that person who reaches out and spends time and energy on someone who drains me to the bone. I can drop the idea of perfectionism, because nobody is perfect. I can walk away from things that keep me from attaining peace! 🙌🏻
In love the other is [most] important; in lust YOU are [the most] important'' --- Osho
When truly respected and wisely channeled #SexualArousal 🔥 (aka #Lust , testosterone-driven #CarnalDESIRE , and/or the unconscious psychodynamic/neurobiological energy of the libido) is greatly associated with a significant increase of instinctual #SelfDetermination , especially when compared to simply #BeingInLove 💘. At times, this #Motivation can seem relentless ... burning away at the very core of OUR flesh --- buried deep within OUR guts. It forces us to abandon our comfort zones, and keep it moving toward greater #PersonalAchievement and influence. #SocialDominance#WilltoPower#AlphaMentality 💪📚🎓👑💰 ...
Being in tune with OUR #Sexuality does NOT just mean walking around with a constant 'hard-on' 😲 or becoming 'soaken wet' 😋 whenever confronted by the thought or image of those WE #DESIRE , but instead this spirit also drives US toward prideful ambition, openness toward richer experience, social competition and the struggle for endless #SELFempowerment . Thus, despite the 'moral' arguments of 'polite' society 🚨, this great spirit deserves the highest praise imaginable because it indeed forces US to own up to, better appreciate and further develop our natural-born #Sensuality --- that is, a profound respect for a LIFE lived and explored through OUR natural senses #LUSTforLIFE 😜 ... as opposed to 'polite' society's corny ass fairy-tales 😊, bull-shit desires 😣, shackling ideals 😬 and crippling, non-realistic expectations 😲 . As a result, this spirit also provides a golden opportunity to become more desirable NOT only to the object(s) of OUR attention but also --- most importantly --- to become more desirable to the object starring back at US through the mirror. #KnowThySELF 😑 #LoveThySELF 😍😈 #BeAFuckingLion 👹 #SpirituallyMotivated 🙏 ...
A Real ONE gonna motivate U.
