Self-Care Sunday w/ Womanhoood: Transparency Journal Posted on 18 Dec 18:18 , 0 comments

Nakia "Nik" Adams is an artist, content creator and extraordinary woman that we hold in high regard. She is greatly responsible for instilling the principles of sisterhood that became the foundation for this space; so it was natural for us to ask her to pour some of her magic on our readers. As the founder of Womanhood - a resource and networking community built for millennial women to be encouraged to live as their true selves - she is well versed in healing ourselves and letting our inner Queen shine.

Read below as she gives us Queens a lesson on the importance of TRANSPARENCY this #SelfCareSunday.

 

Transparency is something I've struggled with for a good portion of my life. When I think about the past and my storytelling moments, I reflect on why I chose not to share my truth and its core reason. My lack of transparency stemmed partly from shame and partly, security. I've always felt defensive; the need to protect myself and my family from everything. This meant that I often shared less and listened more.

With experience and growth I’ve evolved into a better me. A woman who isn’t afraid  to own up to her mistakes and takes pride in freeing herself from having to be perfect.

My transparency journey began with me just reflecting and wanting to heal myself from the past. In order to go forward I needed to address parts of my life that I wasn’t comfortable with and work from within.


Transparency taught me ownership.

I’ve learned through storytelling that I am more than a Bronx born brown girl that came from a predominantly single parent household. I’ve learned that my past does not have to define my future and I may have never discovered any of this if I weren’t telling my story daily.


My relationship with self has strengthened.

It inspired me to practice self-care and be patient with my being.


To end this little piece I just want to let you know that your story matters and people need to hear It.

Transparency is needed in healing. When we are transparent in our daily lives, we are promoting pleasant interactions with ourselves and others. By living as our authentic selves we foster good feelings.I welcome you to open up and let people in.


Please take care of yourself.

Happy Self-Care Sunday.



There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

MAYA ANGELOU




SELF-CARE SUNDAY WITH BRITTANY JOSEPHINA Posted on 04 Dec 00:00 , 0 comments

Sustaining a self-care practice during the holiday season is imperative!
Why? Because coming into contact with representations of who we were or where we've been doesn't have to discredit the progress we've achieved thus far. Whether you've been on your self-care kick over the past couple of months or ready to hop back on the wagon now, here are 4 practices to employ this holiday season.
1. Be Choosy On Purpose. Being around family or old childhood friends might be overwhelming or even draining, but remember that you're not obligated to actually spend a lot of time with them - or perhaps any time. We give permission to the energy we accept. Do you want to give energy to that which elevates or that which drains? Choose intently. 
2. Have Fun. Point. Blank. Period! Partying with the intent to enjoy is actually self-care. Please indulge in some way. You deserve it. 
3. Stay Committed to the Vision. Holidays are typically a break in the work schedule, but that doesn't have to be carried out in our self-care routine. Whether you're a vegan in a family of meat eaters or mediator in a circle of chatty friends, make time to continue these practices. Remember why you chose these specific visions - and keep that in mind. Those around you may not understand, but that's okay. You're fueling the bigger picture - stay focused. 
4. Celebrate YOU. Whether you're a boss babe in college, in charge of your own company or working, you've put in a lot of incredible work. Make time to acknowledge, celebrate and point out ALL the transformative things made happen this year. Trust me - it's been quite a journey thus far, but why not foster a deep sense of gratitude and celebration for where you're at now.
