Closing Out 2022 Full of Memories

My life is super amazing even with the ups and downs!


When adversity strikes we handle it together. Nothing will ever be as bad as my past. I'm in control of this mothership and I won't allow anything to bring us down.

Everyday brings on a new memory to cherish, one to learn from and more ways to grow.


I'm beyond grateful for this life and grateful for everyone that is here supporting our journey to generational wealth.


We have the blueprint and we're executing the plan.

Intentions for 2023


Today is Nia Day 5 for Kwanzaa Celebrations

Purpose -Nia


"To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness."


I'M LIVING IN MY PURPOSE, it took some years to work on me and understand my purpose. Sometimes in life our vision is clouded by situations (including people) around us. It's ok to remove yourself to gain clarity in your purpose! At 18 years old is where my journey into my melaninated self began. It was important for me to discover who I am!


Nia (nee-AH)


The fifth principle of the Nguzo Saba is Nia which is essentially a commitment to the collective vocation of building, developing and defending our national community, its culture and history in order to regain our historical initiative and greatness as a people.


The assumption here is that our role in human history has been and remains a key one, that we as an African people share in the grand human legacy Africa has given the world. That legacy is one of having not only been the fathers and mothers of humanity, but also the fathers and mothers of human civilization, i.e., having introduced in the Nile Valley civilizations the basic disciplines of human knowledge. It is this identity which gives us an overriding cultural purpose and suggests a direction.


This is what we mean when we say we who are the father's and mothers of human civilization have no business playing the cultural children of the world. The principle of Nia then makes us conscious of our purpose in light of our historical and cultural identity.


Inherent in this discussion of deriving purpose from cultural and historical identity is a necessary reference to and focus on generational responsibility. [Frantz] Fanon has posed this responsibility in competing terms. He says, "each generation must, out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, [and then] fulfill it or betray it" (48).


The mission he suggests is always framed within the larger context of the needs, hopes and aspirations of the people. And each of us is morally and culturally obligated to participate in creating a context of maximum freedom and development of the people.


Finally, Nia suggests that personal and social purpose are not only non-antagonistic but complementary in the true communitarian sense of the word. In fact, it suggests that the highest form of personal purpose is in the final analysis, social purpose, i.e., personal purpose that translates itself into a vocation and commitment which involves and benefits the community.


QAs we have noted elsewhere, such a level and quality of purpose not only benefits the collective whole, but also gives fullness and meaning to a persons life in a way individualistic and isolated pursuits cannot.


For true greatness and growth never occur in isolation and at other's expense. On the contra
