What type of flower are you?

No, this is not a joke! Have you found your inner flower? Have you learned to embrace it?

You’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about, so I’ll tell you! A flower is one that lives life existentially. Flowers are adventurous and easygoing. Flowers live life at ease, without stressing the nitty-gritties of the world around us which tend to plague our minds. But of course, upholding the flower mentality, there can never be a specific guideline on how to be a flower or what type of flower you are. Just as flowers differ and hold different attributes, your inner flower is the same. I happen to identify the most with sunflowers.

Sunflowers are underrated beauties, highly melanated (represent the sun), thickly/ strongly rooted, symbolize loyalty and longevity, thrive in hot temperature and varying soils, and are productive. (LOL) I am actually reaching with this interpretation. Anywho, my best friend Yendry and I shared being “flowers” as an insider for a few months, inspired by our Calculus teacher Ms. C. We never really put thought into what type of flowers we were nor did we ever have to explain it to anyone- until our Wildwood vacation. Being flowers was the running joke between the girls and I, after three of us got different flower hennas on our wrists while on the boardwalk (the henna wasn’t even legit.. rip off!). It led us into identifying what types of flowers we were/ wanted to be. Seeing how in depth I got with explaining my inner flower, I can just imagine Yendry’s face while reading this (Hey girl!)

Welp, here you have it! Go on and find/ embrace your inner flower! Comment below what type of flower you see yourself as!


Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Belated Thanksgiving Everyone!! I hope all bellies are full, and souls are joyous!  

I just want to start off saying that I am extremely thankful for you all, who actually take the time to read my blogs, and sometimes even contribute to the discussions and offer feedback! I can’t say it enough how much I appreciate it! And also, I’m thankful for my new followers! Welcome to this thought-filled head of mine, and I hope to see more of you!

This Thanksgiving was one to remember, with my family! The past few thanksgivings have been rather disappointing because I was never surrounded by direct family, so there was never that sense of comfort and  family.  It was the type of environment that, even though your family received an invite, the sense of unwelcome that you felt was overwhelming, leaving you questioning why you gather with them every year! This year, however, was a drastic difference, a difference that I will forever appreciate and remember. You know how there’s always that one side of the family that you really feel connected to, then the other side has the crazy, judgemental aunts that you often feel like you always walk on eggshells around? Yeahh, this year I was surrounded by the positive side, my mom’s side of the family. Together we prayed, danced, laughed, reminisced, ate, created music (it became a music video sooo fast in that house lol) and even did the mannequin challenge ! (Imagine old fashioned African parents partaking in such youthful antics.. killed me!)

But of course, I was that one cousin that dresses up head to toe, while other family members are dressed casually and comfortably.. so I just had to own it lol.
