Chanel T.



I have decided I will be putting myself first. Unapologetically. No more apologizing for who I am...and what I believe...or how I feel.

I have decided that this is my life, and who belongs in it will accept and love me just for me.

No more muting my true feelings and thoughts....or even my concerns to make others comfortable. Life is to short to put on a censored sticker for everyone. When they don’t care to do the same for me.

No more allowing people to say what they want and just accept it. No more chasing and trying to understand why I may not fit in someone’s life.

I am a proud strong black woman who will be happy regardless. Now that I have distanced myself from certain people and their actions...the time alone has brought me closer to myself.

That’s all I needed. (*self care* *self love*)

    May that care and love be forever with you Chanel.

    It agrees with a philosophy that I say about myself;

    "This is me, if you do not like it, that is your problem, not mine."

      more power to you Sister,
      soar high, soar free and soar with those simple everyday clouds, that exist to enrich others: with their very existence
