Be an encourager. The world has enough critics already.

Here’s an old pic of me and my ex-bearfriend. I should’ve known it wouldn’t work out. He was unbearable.😒 #tbt

I have a bunch of quotes floating around my apartment. But this one is my favorite so far. I keep it by the front door as a reminder when I leave out to start my day, and it’s the first thing I see when I come home.. Hope it resonates with you guys as well.✌🏾🖤✨

It’s pretty crazy how we all, unbeknownst to each other, decided to take a trip to San Francisco the same weekend!🙌🏾 I love when life brings you amazing, unplanned experiences with your friends.. I couldn’t have asked for a better time on my first trip to SF. Thanks fellas!😎✌🏾

Since we were created in God’s image, I think it’s safe to say that we are all LOVE, we are all LIGHT and we are all DopeAF! ✌🏾🖤✨ @officiallykhadia @missjaydmv

I remember when my mom would tell me to stop making this face or it will get stuck this way.. 30 something years later and I’m still doing it. Lol 🤪 #cantstopwontstop

They say when life gives you bananas, turn it into lemonade... Wait, that doesn’t sound right. 🤔=🍌🍋❓#NotBeyoncesLemonade LOL

Sure, working nights has its downside. But I’m not looking to give up these post-gym, afternoon naps anytime soon. 💪🏾👴🏾💤

Sometimes we get lucky and life connects us with friends who become family.. You’ll share meaningful experiences like quizzing each other on your fraternity’s history.. or you’ll be in the hospital, scared to have an emergency surgery, but your best friend is right by your side so you know it’s all good.. Maybe there’s a time when he’s in Michigan working on his doctorate, and you’ll step in to help his fiancé move furniture from Orange County to Playa del Rey.. and one thing’s for sure, you’ll definitely sing John Legend’s “All of Me” for their first dance at their wedding.💍😩🎵• Over the years we’ve created so many unforgettable moments.. And now we get to share all this love and more with Baby Jolie!🎀 • It doesn’t get much better than this. I’m so blessed to have a brother, sister and niece right here in LA.❤️✌🏾🌴 @c_robshorette @aprilfae & Jolie🍼

@emilykingmusic said it best.. “If I had one request granted after I’m gone, I would ask my Creator to turn the radio on”.🎵 And naturally, I would request the greatest album of all time! • Please and thank you. 🙏🏾👟💫

30 days ago I felt a strong urge to give up things that were not conducive to my personal development.. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely used to enjoy a few (or more) Belgian beers on #SundayFunday 😜🍻.. But I knew that in order for me to fully experience another level of growth, I needed to take some time and clear my head • So I spent the last four weeks processing emotions, redirecting counterproductive behaviors, blocking out other people’s opinions and focusing on the only person who can truly make me happy... ME • And so far, this whole “rediscovering ME” journey feels pretty fuckin’ AMAZING!

Never have I ever had so much fun in IKEA..lol🤪. On one hand, some people were looking at us like “why are these grown ass adults singin’ and dancin’ in this store like kids?”... But at the same time, some random woman said “it looks like you two are having fun and enjoying life!” Well, she was absolutely right • With everything going on in the world and all the responsibilities we have as adults, I think it’s so important for us to reconnect with our childlike spirit as often as possible. It helps us stay in alignment with who we really are.. LOVE, LIGHT & PURE JOY.☀️ @missjaydmv
