IN ORDER FOR US TO ADVANCE AS A PEOPLE, THE MENTAL CHAINS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE BROKEN-
— Je'Don Holloway- Talley

THE MISCONCEPTION OF THE CONSCIOUS MOVEMENT: BREAKING THE MENTAL CHAINS

If anything, consciousness intensifies your spiritual connection to The Creator, The Most High, God. You discover how the bible was intended to be interpreted, and how translation, additional writings, and the extraction of full books, changed concepts, precepts, and messaging. It’s also understanding that The Creator is not man. The Creator has many more facets to its existence than, the idea of God being a White man-king on a throne.

 

MARCH INTO BLACKNESS: APRRECIATION. PRIDE. RESPECT.

As I journey further into understanding African heritage and the distinction that Black American culture poses against the greatness of African capabilities, I have realized that there is a positivity drought amongst American perception. However, I am here to break up the monotony of SAD, OPRESSIVE, imagery, in regard to African BLACKNESS, even in our own sub consciousness.

 

NEW MILLENNIAL DATING: DO THEY DATE OR DO THEY PLAY?

Building a brand is not easy, Your visions are forever evolving, and if extremely passionate about it, consumes you day in and day out. Take our Content Curator Je’Don for example. She is never at rest. Continuously, she works to develop and strengthen a safe haven for African American people. Being a Mother and Wife are obviously her priorities, but the balance is what truly defines who she is. Ideally, the balance of being entrepreneur and maintaining romantic interest requires should be understood between both parties. The modern day entrepreneur enjoy quick meet and greets opposed to long drawn out dates. In addition, they seem to enjoy casual partnership. They will "Play" all day before truly committing.

FORMATION: THE ACTION OF FORMING OR THE PROCESS OF BEING FORMED

Clearly the Queen is paying close attention to the racist, ass backwards happenings of this country. Although she is not personally affected by the stereotypical circumstances of the black community; she still feels the pain of her people. Beyonce’s message is unapologetically BLACK as she slams the European perception of black beauty by celebrating the kinky coils of natural black hair, flowing Afrocentric-ghetto-rrific braided locks, beautiful ebony complexions, and full African facial features! She sets the scene on an old French style plantation home and in the streets and daily lives of the New Orleans urban inhabitant. She brilliantly connects the church to the streets of the ghetto, the ghetto to the plantation, and the plantation to the negro revolution. #Genius! She is saying loud and clear it is time for revolutionary change, time do do as our forefathers did, and build! #BlackPantherMovement. She also blatantly calls out the government for their lack of extended interest in the wellbeing of people affected by natural devastation in black communities.

AN INTIMATE CONVERSTAION WITH SEBASTIAN KOLE: THE MAN BEHIND THE MUSIC

SK: So when they put me in the ground, I've told my mom and all my family this;  when they bury me, I want my tombstone to say I was a steward of righteousness, a lover of all mankind, and an example of The Most High. That's what my life is really all about. I want to do what's right, that's the most important thing to me, to always do things the right way. In everything that I want to accomplish, I want to know that I did it the right way. Without having had to trick anybody, or use anybody. I didn't sleep my way to the top, I didn't sell my soul to the devil, I didn't do any of those things. I want to know that I did this the way that I felt was right to do, so that I can go to sleep at night...because I did what I thought was right. So that's life to me.
 

WEST COAST HAIR COMPANY: DOLLING HAIR

This post is for the ladies of LCP, sorry fellas! This one is for my weave lovin' sista's and the natural diva’s that like to switch it up every now and again! I know every once in a while, y’all too put your hair in two goat braids, and throw a Brazilian wig on top…SAY YOU DON’T! (lol) Whether you do or you don’t, or you will or won’t (homage to Missy Elliott) all women love versatility when it comes to hair. So whether it be the occasional wig or weave, you haven’t gotten your money’s worth until you’ve invested in some #DollingHair!

10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD START A YOGA PRACTICE IN 2017

 
 

CHANGE COMES AT A CONSTANT IN LIFE, BE IT GOOD OR BAD. BUT IT UP TO US TO MORPH CHANGE INTO FUEL FOR EVOLUTION! CHANGE AFFECTS US ALL DIFFERENTLY, SOME PEOPLE ARE REALLY ACCEPTING OF CHANGE AND STRIVE TO CREATE A POSITIVE OUTCOME, EVEN WHEN FACED WITH CHANGE CAUSED BY NEGATIVITY. I HAVE SEVERAL PHILOSOPHIES ABOUT CHANGE, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE IS TO FIND THE SILVER LINING IN ANY SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES. 

 

It is important to keep the energy in motion. We want to avoid stagnation. We want to feel feelings and not get trapped in them.

LIFE PERSPECTIVE WHILE ON YOUR GRIND: APPRECIATION CULTIVATES HUMILITY

Look, we all have goals and drive as ambitious people but I want to share an aha moment I had... Before we start our daily grinds, mantras, hustles, or whatever we are chasing; we have to FIRST take a second and make a conscious effort to force ourselves to slow down and GIVE THANKS!

We must take time to APPRECIATE the small victories on the way to our ultimate goals, DAILY before the grind even starts! No matter how small, because appreciation cultivates humility; and humility is a main ingredient to a solid foundation that can handle the weight of success.

THE YEAR OF THE GRIND: CIRCA 2016

NOW I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR GRIND AT A GLANCE!

First you have to write your vision and leave nothing out. Be realistic with your goals or realistic with yourself about your work ethic, and determine what you want to accomplish this year. Try to do this with the idea in mind, that you want your vision to equate to 12 goals that will complete one major goal. After that, extract the actual goals from the vision and break them into 12 grinds. Reference the formula below!

HERE’S THE FORMULA- 

1 YEAR = 12 MONTHS

12 MONTHS = 12 GRINDS

12 GRINDS = 1 GRIND PER MONTH

1 GRIND / 4 WEEKS = 4 MINI GRINDS

4 MINI GRINDS /  4 WEEKS = 1 MINI GRIND PER WEEK

4 MINI GRINDS = 1 FULL GRIND

 

MEET THE FOUNDERS OF THE DOLLING HAIR FOUNDATION- BRITTNEY HINDS & SASHA GATES!

The founding ladies of Dolling Hair Extensions are also very philanthropic. They believe “Beauty is Inspirational” and can will a woman to remain strong throughout any battle. Especially the battle of cancer. A year after starting Dolling Hair Extensions, Sasha and Brittney formed The Dolling Foundation.  At the onset of forming the corporation, they agreed that they wanted to give back to the community with the profits they made. Since they sold hair and understood the extreme intrinsic value hair has to women, it was easy to decide to give custom wigs to women suffering from hair loss due to illness or cancer treatment. When you support #DollingHair you support WOMEN. Period!
