Feeling so proud and inspired by all the magnificent #blackbeauty being celebrated recently, on a global scale. I wanted to share the innovative, powerful, and regal #blackwomen that have inspired me: #earthakitt #carmendelavallade #gracejones #titibranch #mikobranch of #missjessies
These women are #trailblazers #activists #triplethreats #kennedycenter honorees and #nationaltreasures
P.s. and I had to include Carmen with her love, #geoffreyholder because #lovegoals❤️
Silently judging me for having to wear shoes.
Me secretly being jealous of his lack of shoes and stellar grip.
Always fun watching how graceful they are and simple they run along the snow. However, I do get a good laugh then he slips.

Something that has been a recurring theme, especially as of late, is the importance of community. It's easy to see social media as this void that you're just screaming and hurling shit into, but (like most things) when it's used intentionally, real magic can happen.
I've never had an easy time making friends. I get all nervous and short circuit when I'm surrounded by people I don't know. Sweaty palms, tight chest, all that good jazz. But once I start to feel comfortable enough, it becomes so much easier to share, laugh, and enjoy the company of others.
In many ways, I consider Instagram to be a great primer for this. All the big scary initial conversations happen from the comfort of my own security blanket (both metaphorical and literal). There's time to reread a comment so it comes across exactly how I meant it. There's no pressure to keep a conversation going to fill uncomfortable silences. I can be immersed in community and put it away when it gets to be too much.
The biggest bonus, imho, is being able to be an observer. To see what everyone else puts out there, what they value, who they love, how they celebrate, mourn, or simply be. There's a lot I don't get about, you know, being a competent, engaging human, but this is a good place to learn. Y'all are some good people, it's cozy on this corner of the internet, so thank you. Seriously, thank you!
What about you? Do you feel connected on or off screen?
