I was feeling shaken and insecure this morning. My energy was way off. I let fear get the best of me.
I had to pull myself out of a pit that I had fallen in to. A deep, dark pit of anxiety and fear. I just wanted to crawl back in to bed, and sleep for ages and ages.
Instead, I changed my mindset.
I took a cool shower. Cranked the music. Slathered on all the oils. Spoke some positive affirmations over my life. And pulled myself together.
I am strong.
I am smart.
I am beautiful
I am confident.
I am abundance.
I threw on my Sseko Quartz Drop Earrings, because they make me feel like a boss. (And if you didn’t know, clear quartz is known to help clear your mind of negativity). Heck yeah, no wonder I feel like a boss in them! Boom baby!
I went to the bank and found that I had more money in my account than I realized. Thank you Jesus!
I found something I could actually eat while I was out with the kids. This is nearly unheard of unless I go to special restaurants.
I ran through Starbucks and got a Frappuccino for only $.97. Y’all, coupons and a credit on my rewards card. 🙌 Holla for less than a dolla!
I played tag with the neighborhood kids, and let out my inner child.
I changed my mindset so I could change the entire energy of my day.
It went from a day that could have been miserable and mopey, to a really wonderful afternoon. Y’all, mindset changes everything. EVERYTHING.
I’m calling in all of the good things to attract to me and my kids. Everyone deserves a good life. Let the goodness come to you. Remember, life is always working for you. It’s not working against you. You just need to let it do it’s job.

✨ GIVEAWAY & BLOG TOUR STOP ✨ .
Hi all! Welcome to the final day of the blog tour for I Am Change by @authorsuzyzail! Thanks to @walkerbooksaus and @ausyabloggers for letting me join in on this tour; this book was incredible!
A little bit about the book:
Set in a Ugandan village, Lilian has learned to shrink herself to fit other people’s ideas of what a girl is. In her village a girl is not meant to be smarter than her brother. A girl is not meant to go to school or enjoy her body or decide who to marry. Especially if she is poor.
✨ MINI REVIEW ✨
I am Change follows the teenage life of Lilian, who has big dreams. But her dreams do not fit the same moulds that have shaped traditions in her family and her village for generations.
I absolutely loved this book. Zail brings Lilian to life not only through her own writing, but through her real life connection. Did you know this book starts off with a foreword from a Ugandan woman with a life story not much unlike that of Lilians? I think that was what began it for me, the thing that hit the nail home, that said 'Yes, this is going to be a good one.'
It was honestly breathtaking. Heart-in-throat, breathtaking.

Dr John Henry Clarke 1915- 1998
John Henrik Clarke, was an African-American historian, professor, and a pioneer in the creation of Pan-African and Africana studies, and professional institutions in academia starting in the late 1960s.
John Henrik Clarke, historian, black nationalist, and Pan-Africanist, was a pioneer in the formation of Africana studies in the United States. Principally a self-trained historian, Clarke dedicated his life to correcting what he argued was the prevailing view that people of Africa and of African decent had no history worthy of study. Over the span of his career Clarke became one of the most respected historians of African and African American history
In the course of his long and varied academic career, John Henrik Clarke made tremendous contributions to the disciplines of African and African American studies. For more than six decades, he lectured on Black history all over the world, from community centers in Harlem to universities in Africa. He wrote six books and edited or contributed to seventeen others.
In addition to attending school, Clarke did odd jobs for various white families in the area. Interested in finding out more about African history, he asked a lawyer for whom he worked—and who had often lent Clarke books from his library—if he could borrow a book on African history. “In a kindly way he told me that I came from a people who had no history but, that if I persevered and obeyed the laws, my people might one day make history,” Clarke wrote in “A Search for Identity.” “At that point of my life I began a systematic search for my people’s role in history.” As an expert on African and African American history, Clarke dedicated his life to countering widely-held stereotypes and misconceptions. “Until quite recently, it was rather generally assumed, even among well-educated persons in the West, that the African continent was a great expanse of land .
