Article: “The Reality of Navigating the Mental Health System as a Black Woman” _ “Like the cultural stigma that surrounds mental health services, the issue of underrepresentation in the psychology field won’t be solved overnight. For black men and women, the hurdles linked to seeking out a therapist or a counselor can seem insurmountable. Yet for those who are willing and able to not only seek help but find a mental health professional that looks like them, the benefits can be undeniably affirming.” _ “Bradford says, “It’s important to realize that mental health is something we all have, just like we all have physical health.” Black therapists may not currently be in abundance, but they exist. For many potential black patients, having someone who understands the nuances of how racial identity factors into mental health means a safe space where one’s voice is finally heard.” _ Join our forum at Blackmarbles.org

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I chose to become." Carl Jung When I tell you that Black Women inspires me, I truly mean it. Black women are strong both mentally & physically. If a black woman would share their life stories with you, one would wonder how we've never given up on life. Some Black Women have been abused sexually, physically, financially, emotionally & verbally by people we know & by strangers. The Black Woman for the most part have no one to protect them, no one to turn to. We grow up guarding ourselves, we build protective shields around us and sadly the world is quick to call us the "angry black woman", when we speak out to protect ourselves because there's no one to protect us.

The Last Dragon Flow! #netflix #thelastdragon
About to jump into my workout for the day. It’s been a busy day. I’m gearing up for the next week so that means laundry, wash day for Malia and I (later for me obviously😂😂), homework, gymnastics class for Bunny, and then random toy shopping at Target. The last thing I want to do is workout but I’m the most productive I have ever been BECAUSE I’ve been working out. My body is stronger. My mind is clearer. My heart is lifted. 30 minutes a day at home with my daughter watching and learning how mama takes care or herself. It’s not all about weight loss for me...it’s more about being the best version of myself possible...so I can raise a whole and happy little princess into a QUEEN!💕 #singlemomhustle #fitmommy #sundaymotivation
