Positive thoughts and practices are the
weights that keep us sharp and toned.
This blog post is simple, yet very imperative. I am here to offer some advice as well as continue to practice what I teach and put some action behind it.
Today’s public service announcement is a reminder to:
SUPPORT YOUR FRIENDS!
As simple as it sounds, sometimes we forget (self included) to show love to those close to us.
Before going any further, I want to take time to thank YOU (I see you smiling) for your continued support for me and "The ABnormal Life."
We are approaching our two year Blog-i-versary soon. (Freaks out for 2 secs!)
I am SO grateful this platform has connected me to phenomenal people like you. Your engagement and kind words keep me uplifted and pushing towards continued greatness.
Now, there are various ways to support our friends.
Knowing that everyone’s situation is different, I’ve offered different ways for you to support your friends for whatever season you are in.
If monetary support doesn’t align with the season you’re in at the moment, know that there are others ways to support and your friends should be just as grateful for that support as well.
I’d like to show support and shine a super bright light on a black owned company I recently had the pleasure of supporting.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you might remember a series I started called the “Pay It Forward” Series.
It was a series I created to introduce, bring awareness, and give exposure to amazing people and their brands. I’d love to re-awaken that series starting today!
Today’s “Pay It Forward” Episode is shining a light on:
“Carefree and Black Diaries”
"Carefree and Black Diaries is a podcast that discusses everything from culture, politics, music, and education. But with a dash of hood on the rocks. Just a Black Girl navigating this thing called life and documenting it along the way."
It is hosted by my incredibly talented friend, Shaakira White. (https://www.instagram.com/shaakirawhite/ )
I recently had the opportunity to accompany her as well as another amazing woman, Diamond Rollins. (https://www.instagram.com/diamondalicia_/ )
Our podcast episode was just realeased yesterday! (I’m excited!)
Our discussion is from a content creator's perspective about working with brands, the changing landscape in influencing, and learning how we’ve been navigating these uncertain times as creative entrepreneurs.
I really enjoyed our discussion. There were a lot of laughs and a few golden nuggets that you don’t want to miss out on. :)
You can visually watch the discussion or listen to the audio.

Shaakira, thank you for creating a safe space for black women. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. You are making an incredible impact with your knowledge and your voice. I support you 100%!
