Hanna Horvath speaks truth!
A lot of us have the wrong mentality when it comes to honoring our ancestors. We think that by just holding up their pictures for a month is making them proud but it’s much more to it. You honor those who came before you by changing your thinking. You honor them by changing your situation. Holding up pictures doesn’t mean shit if you’re not trying to change the same situation that they were fighting for. Black people are sitting here today in a worse situation than we were in before and we think we make our ancestors proud by talking that “first black bullshit” and begging people to teach our history. Some of us sit here and post pictures of Malcolm X or Marcus Garvey but don’t do shit to better the situation of their people. Fred Hampton said it best, "If you gonna remember me and you ain’t gonna do no revolutionary act, forget about me. I don’t want myself on your mind if you’re not gonna work for the betterment of your people."

This docu is painful to watch… The injustice against the young men has my stomach in knots; could it be because this could still happen today?!?
I have constantly been dealing with food and weight struggles. Just take a look here, here, here, oh here.. and even here on this site at my post that chronicle as far back as 2008 to see how often the topic of weight or diet or health coms into the discussion? How many New Years Resolutions have centered about bettering my health and hopeful wellness?? When will it ever end?
" The charge was to create two list for each person you have a dating history with: one list with the persons good qualities (pros) and a second for his bad qualities (cons). Each person was to have their own list, so you really had to spend some time thinking about the person and your relationship. After creating your list you were to circle every positive and negative quality that was repeated at least twice. When done, you were to create a want ad based on the negative qualities! Eeek! " Click the link for more!
Even if sometimes the happiness isn’t smacking me in the face.. I know, deep down through all the sad days and lonely nights, my life makes me happy. I’ve worked hard (and continue to), I’m challenged, and appreciated. I know I’m appreciated even there isn’t someone telling it to me every day. I bring something unique to this space I occupy.
"I felt like I was being tested in my faith that there is something out there for me, at least in the love department. A love that makes my heart and brain smile together in unison. I have to believe that my future is out there and not go back to the past out of fear of loneliness"
"Currently, I have no interest in first dates and getting to know you. The idea of asking those questions like, “who you be with? What ya interest are? Things that make you smile and what numbers to dial,” make me want to bury my head in a groundhog fashion. I just feel completely disinterested in the whole process. "
