My favourite thang right now is this! Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Red Table Talk is back! The original short talk with Willow and Jada’s mom Adrienne was so dope and offered a face to the very unique way I parent as a womyn of colour, artist, social activist and passion enthusiast.
Jada has always represented the womyn of my dreams- meaning, the representation of the fullness of being yourself. (from films like Jason’s Lyric, Menace II Society, Set if Off etc) Her realness, her talent, her passion for life, her passion for social justice – for children’s rights (specifically Child sex trade), her love for her children and also her desire to inspire them towards their fullest and most authentic selves, her Herstory of struggle and adversity and her tenacity to create the life she wanted with the knowledge of grace, inner peace and healing. We are basically the same people- LOL.
If you don’t know, now you know- watch this and the following Red Table Talk amazingness!
From one of my favourite Boyz II Men records to the Mamas here & globally(this song always brings me to tears.)
One of the hardest jobs on this planet AND what I know for sure is this from Dr. Shefali of the Conscious Parent- What your children really want from you is for you to Grow yourself, to heal yourself, to fulfill your greatest potential and to be at peace. It’s the greatest gift you could offer yourself and them.
And every year I share this quote from my lil (tall) one from when he was 4 years old. “Mommy, thank you for choosing me to be your son.” And I say, “I would choose you again and again.”

Got a little teary eyed today while teaching with my lil guy present and saying out loud- “I am a survivor of sexual abuse & assault.” I recognized in that moment that the cycle has truly been interrupted- I realized how much I am now truly T…
So this happened yesterday👇🏽Short Hair, All Day.
My hair HerStory could fill a thousand pages 📖over the last 35 years.
But mostly, HerStory says YES to more TIME, more funk, more style, more refinement, more ease, no attachment, more barber shop visits to Diverse Barbershop in Kitchener & ultimately More Freedom!
