How I Zen in to stay grounded; and you?

#grounding how do you do that each day ? Life comes at us in all shades and sounds and it’s very important for me to stay grounded, Zen in and watch my aura. There is a lot on YouTube to choose from, and add to prayers and all… whatever works for you oooooo. I spent almost three hours with these this morning and I feel so relaxed…

My pearls are precious and fill me with peace today

It’s been a roller coaster 5 or so days and I was both physically and mentally disturbed. Just when I thought I was 95% recovered, I found myself holding space for a few ladies who were going through stuffs…as my PTSD got triggered yesterday, I felt the irritation rise and knew sports and dem pearls had to rescue me today.

And then I got to dem pearls and have the following message for us all:

#mentalhealthmatters Put your pearls on and push through any pain with a purpose… Don’t let that challenge and shenanigan dim your glow…sweat the stuffs and keep smiling like myself…contact me if you want dem pearls in any colour

Meeting Aminata: A tale of resilience and success

#downmemorylane #gritandgrace #resilience #migrantlife #studentlife #foreigners #sisterhood

I met Aminata Ba in January 2015 when I moved into a students’ flat in Brussels shared by 3 of us. I can’t say exactly the mental space I was in, but I was back to taking antidepressants. when I even look at my Google photos, there is only one clear photo from January 2015 which is of me in school looking irritated someone took it to begin with. Ami and I took no picture together in the 4 months we lived together, life then was all about trying to stay alive and hustle to pay bills and eat even if once a day (I could care less tbt). Six years later, we meet, can sit down for hours over breakfast and update each other on our milestones after a walk  in the hood, and I returned home 4 hour later so happy for all. I listened to Ami with rapt attention, I could feel the joy in her too. I share this to inspire, motivate and encourage.
