Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via kushandwizdom)

Things I learned this summer…

diaryofakanemem:

  1. Everything happens for a reason.
  2. Not everything needs a reaction
  3. People are placed in your life for a reason.
  4. If you lost value in a friendship, it’s okay to let it go.
  5. "Tell him that you like him. Girl, go get yo man!"
  6. Pray on good days and bad.
  7. Life is what you make it. So live it wisely.
  8. It’s okay to have a sad day but come sunrise, it’s time to get going.
Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society.

- Angela Davis, activist, author, educator

Happy 70th birthday to one of my favourite sheroes ever!
