I am very proud of the person that I have become. I am proud of the person that I am becoming. It may not always feel like I am getting as far as I want to in life, but then I look back at how far I’ve come and I realize that there is just a lapse in my perception. The person that I used to be has made me the person that I am today, and the person that I am today will lead my future self to being the person that I always felt that I was, can, and will be. Each day I become more conscious, self-loving, aware, accepting, and carefree. Each day I become more and more comfortable with being myself. This is unfortunately something that many of us overlook, but you know what? We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think that we are worth. Self love and discovery are more than important.


being a carefree black girl has nothing to do with actually having no cares. to me it literally just means being alive and carving out tiny pockets of happiness and freedom in this shitty ass society that is trying to mentally destroy you for existing.
