Sunday night, “Black Girls Rock” award show aired and apparently, it was awesome! I feel bad for not watching it, but I’m not really into watching award shows. I know I need to do better because this one showcases positive images of black women doing what we do best, which is being awesome! We aren’t all drama queens or video vixens. We are business women, wives, mothers, actresses, writers, and most importantly movers and shakers in this world and we must remember this!
As a blogger, I know I could write more than I do, because once a week, really isn’t cutting it. Over the past few months, I’ve come across so many other talented writers and bloggers that inspire women to live their best lives possible. They’ve inspired me to blog more, but for the sake of keeping this short, I will only name three of the blogs that have recently inspired me. Kary Washington of For Brown Girls has started a movement based on her experiences growing up and how she’s learned to love being a woman of color. Kaneisha Grayson is a young business woman and writer whose styple I simply adore, and Rosetta of Happy Black Woman who is as equally awesome, but has a different style from Kaneisha. Depsite the style differences, their messages are all the same. They want to help women live their dreams, and love themselves unconditionally. They blog about their own experiences so openly that you can’t help but admire their courage. I’ve only just begun to really open up about my life and get personal with my readers, which can be a scary thing but it’s also very freeing. Even if only one person is inspired to chase their dreams by reading about me pursuing mine, well then I know it will all have been worth it.
I feel like I’m a bit all over the place right now, but to be clear, this post is about a transformation that I’ve been going through for the past few months. I’ve grown spiritually, mentally, and even changed somewhat physically and I want to share my experiences with the world. I moved to Atlanta to pursue my dream of become a screenwriter and finally feel as though I’m coming into my own. But I couldn’t have gotten this far without the countless people who haved touched my life are still helping to shape me into the person I am becoming.
So to bring this post to a close, I want dedicate it to all of the black women out there changing the world around them, and inspiring others to live their best lives possible, because black girls rock!
