Your Purpose Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated

If you spend any time in personal development circles, you hear a lot about purpose. Find your purpose! Live your purpose! Work your purpose! And while finding your purpose is not bad advice, sometimes this approach can make us feel that we need to have a purpose that is so lofty and grand and that […]

Homecoming

Do you choose a theme for the year? My theme for the year is Homecoming. When I reflected on what I wanted 2021 to be like for me, I kept coming back to the idea that I wanted to really feel like I was sinking into myself. I want to show up as myself 100%I […]

Slow down, to go fast

Happy New Year! I’ve been using January to ease myself back into this year. For me, the new year kinda kicks off in February, which I admit, is not typical.

Maybe it’s not an idea, maybe it’s a desire.Learning a new language.Taking a pole dancing class.Going […]

‘We Don’t Need Or Want Teachers Like You.’

“We Don’t Want Or Need Teachers Like You.” Earlier this week on Instagram those were just one of the phrases hurled at me and my community by some random guy after being triggered and offended by this post. Not going to lie. Waking up to having someone challenge my thoughts or ideas wasn’t the best start […]

Sleeping Under The Stars

Have you ever passed up on an opportunity or adventure because you felt like your folks didn’t do things like that? In other words, have you deemed something, anything, as “White People Shit?” If you know the Color Outside story, you know one of the first meetups I had was on a hike where we […]
