Spending time with friends old and new. I try to keep a pretty diverse set, as you all know. 🙃 Never know who you can help and who you’ll be able to learn something from. ☺️ From Friday’s Jumu’ah, “Actions are according to intentions, and everyone will get what was intended.” Also this: Beginner’s Arabic classes are taught on Sundays at 11 a.m., to those interested. 🙋🏻WHHHHHY aren’t there more hours in the day? >> #interestedineverything #curioserandcurioser #atlanta #atlantamasjid #arabic #jumuah #interfaith
It will. I promise. • Had a conversation with a close friend this morning and another this afternoon. The conversations and context were different, but the premise was the same; there comes a point when you are so happy with yourself that NOTHING can get you down. It’s that self love, that inner sunshine. No amount of negative energy or negative individuals can make your glass appear half empty. • Mine is overflowing. I wake up happy. I go to bed happy. Are there hard parts in between? Absolutely. Are there painful bits? You bet. But those don’t define me; my circumstances don’t define me. I define me: I am light. I am laughter. I am love. I am a resource for others. I want to guide and to encourage. I want to tell you, if you haven’t been told, find the Light. You are loved and everything will be fine. 💗 • >> #life #light #love #blog #blogger #beautyblogger #bb #adventureswithanna #qotd #quoteoftheday #inspo #inspire #pink #happy #friendship #sunshine #liveoutloud
Coach Larry Kirksey, my absolute favorite person I met today.😍Larry is a former National Football League coach with 17 years experience coaching in the League and an additional 22 years of coaching experience in the college ranks. That said, this man is as kind and as humble as they come. Stay woke, men. Ladies love a soft-spoken Southern gentleman, and there’s nothing more attractive in any of us than humility. It’s a beautiful thing when you let your record do the talking! >> #larrykirksey #nfl #football #alabama #universityofalabama #kentucky #sanfrancisco #fortyniners #sports #atlanta #winning
❤️ What a sharp looking bunch! Don’t let the powers that be tell you otherwise. They’d have us believe that black men, particularly athletes, are a bunch of rebellious trouble makers. That’s simply not true and never once been my experience. This group, comprised of former NFL players and coaches, businessmen, consultants, and even an Ambassador, were anything but! They were inspiring, particularly in their thoughtful discussion around the Black Lives Matter and “right to kneel” dialogue. We could collectively be better if we would pause, without passing judgment, and really listen to what one another is saying. >> #nfl #football #sports #luncheon #atlanta #murica #america #ootd #picoftheday #instagood #athletes #career #payitforward #work #righttopeacefulassembly #business #blacklivesmatter

Learning about wave lengths, liquid nitrogen, cardiovascular systems and other cool things at the second “Step Into STEM” youth conference hosted by Junior STEM, a Georgia Tech Student Organization.🤓🤓 >> #TeamNerd #InclusionExcellenceAndDiversity #buzz #whatsthebuzz #georgiatech #stem #juniorstem #womeninstem #science #technology #engineering #math #momlife #atlanta #adventureswithanna
“Authenticity is magnetic.”❤️ Stopped trying to look like everyone else a long time ago. Which is a good thing, because I was failing.😆 I much prefer being true to myself, whatever that may mean at the moment. ☺️ Only one thing is certain now — I’m not here to meet a standard or to please them, him, or her. The older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin.👸🏻 My authenticity is bulletproof. I’m obsessively attracted to it in others. That glowy quality that radiates out from within and makes them superhuman, it’s so magnetic. I know it when I see it. And when I do, I’ll pull up a chair at my table for you, and you, mine. Then we’ll dine on confidence that oozes and laugh deeply that they can’t tell us nothin’. >> #confidence #beauty #light #shine #adventureswithanna #havepassionwilltravel #liveoutloud #quoteoftheday #qotd #kanye #yeezy #vintage #vintagestyle #pinup #pinupstyle #pinuphair #hotd #ditavonteese #inspo #style #stylegram #styleblogger #rockabilly #bb #beautyblogger #atlanta #katvond #motd #fotd #cateye
Thank you for summing up adulthood so succinctly. I went to bed with a headache, I woke up with a headache.

Every day for like, the past week, I’ve had someone near and dear say something along these lines to me. I can take the hint, Universe. Everything we’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear. The only remedy, then, is to be unabashedly, recklessly fearless. I can dig it. ✨🦄🔥✨ >> #firestarter #soulstirrer #fearless #lifejourney #iamaunicorn #unicorn #wanderer #seeker #live #liveoutloud #light #adventureswithanna #havepassionwilltravel
•T -The •G -Grind •I -Includes •F -Fridays This is what the end of a fifty hour work week looks like.🥂I'd like to raise a toast: Cheers to gainful employment. Cheers to working when you're tired, sick, or children are vying for your time and attention. Cheers to admonishing yourself, "YESYOUCAN" when you first heard yourself whispering, a million times, "i can't." Cheers to obstacles overcome, limitations shoved aside, and every roadblock that tried to hinder, removed. Cheers to the doubters and the naysayers, the ones who told me I was too crazy, too eccentric, too much. A very special toast to my haters, the dusty ones I shook off a long, long time ago. Thank you, in hindsight, for fueling my progress forward. Also, cheers to the men who couldn't keep up. Yes, ladies, let's toast to all the boys out there - masquerading as grown men - who can't handle the grind; who are intimidated by our work ethics, our delicious intelligence, our shimmering, glittering expectations. Cheers to their insecurities parading around their true colors and, thereby, setting us freer than we've ever been. Cheers to knowing my worth and what I'll never go back to. Cheers to clenched-jaw determination, fighters' wills, and mommas that instilled within us burning heaps of confidence. Cheers to an inner compass that shines the way, and daughters and sons who light a fire within us that shines so bright, we need no other guide as we pound our way down life's path, while our heartbeat, which rings so loudly in our ears with that message of audacious hope, is the only thing we truly hear. Cheers to fifty more years of this. Cheers to the knuckle-busting days, the nights spent nursing others, and the love made in between. I will not stop because I cannot stop. I'm flying and I don't tremble when I look down. >> #bw #photography #picoftheday #blackandwhite #instagood #stylegram #bb #beautyblogger #instastyle #thefutureisfemale #theydontdancenomo #tgif #thegrindincludesfriday #thefemininemystique #motherhood #thesecretlifeofme #adventureswithanna #lbd #littleblackdress #cityscape #roomwithaview #chardonnay #wine #cheers #toast #toasttothegoodlife #thisisthegoodlife #canttellmenothing
👧🏽A stranger came up to me today and said, "Your daughter is so cute; I can't stand it. And she's got a lot of sass!"
