Be.

It’s taken some time for me to learn to live in the present moment. I had to learn that right now I am exactly where I need to be. When working on my craft this lesson is gold. For one to capture my true essence, I must be present, must be fearless and must be, me. I can’t be distracted by what was,for that is no more. I can’t cloud my mind with what ahead, for that has yet to come. The life long task of constructing that which is Tea is indeed challenging. I choose to believe I come fully qualified and equipt for the journey. I just have to remain present, and simply be.

My fellow beings…my challenge to you,

Be.

I grew up with Fred Crump Jr. fairy tales; get his books here. Thankful for parents that knew Representation Matters. 

My mother used to read these to me every night

will never not reblog.

They say:

"We have a girl that looks like you already…"

"You should consider another profession, we doubt that you will have any success as a model…"

"Your too tall…"

"Yea, you should really work on your hips your perfect everywhere else but…"

"You gotta really try to whiten up your book-it’s just too urban, it’s too black…"

"Well one thing you have going for you is your ambiguity, I mean your not offensively black and that’s a plus…"

No matter what anyone says. I’ve decided to show the world what I am working with and proceed to be phucking flawless.
