But let's not dwell on the unfavourable, but instead let me share some goodness i've seen and read this week. First of all, Jazmine's post 'my little corner of the internet' filled me with absolute joy. I genuinely whispered "Yes" when I read it because it encapsulated a lot of feelings i've held about my blog for a while, but wasn't sure how to relay. It made me feel so much better about my blog knowing that there were other bloggers who had been blogging for a while too, who felt a little disillusioned and not quite sure what to do, but it's a nice feeling of reassurance. This 'Be Brave' enamel pin is on my to buy list at the end of the month, a little gift to myself for always persevering despite wanting to sleep my life away, for the most part, I'm getting out of bed in the mornings, putting on my brave face, and facing the world with a spine of steel. Thirdly, please can we collectively sigh at the most beautiful shoes in the world? These would definitely put a spring in anyone's step, I used to stay away from colour, but i'm slowly incorporating brights into my wardrobe and this would make a great addition. Fourth is Ijeoma Umebinyuo's 'Questions for Ada' which i've shown extensively on my instagram. Ijeoma's writing feels like home, and that simply put is the only way i can describe it. If you love poetry (especially ones written by woc) then you'll love it.
Here's to a better week for us all, may love and light guide your way as always <3 How is january shaping up for you so far?
