My beautiful baby boy So curious and pure Yet SO clear about what you don’t want “NO!” you say with vigor When you don’t like something going on in your small but powerful 5-year-old-world I hope that never changes I hope that inner strength and fire Never extinguishes And you never feel the sway to fit in Or be silenced I have a STRONG feeling you won’t That’s just not the fabric from which u came Look at you: Future architect, Builder, Mastermind, Wisdom keeper, Re-shaper, Change maker... My Beautiful Baby Boy You are unstoppable!!! #Blacklivesmatter Link in my bio for ways you can stay involved
I personally needed a moment to continue to go deeper, plan, take the time to make the calls, be active, read, listen, continue conversations with our families etc.. But not in anyway to silence what’s SO important right now. Choose what you need to do for your knowledge and well being, but this important message by @mspackyetti truly needs to be heard.

And how this lands on you! 💜💜 If you’re like me and feel like you have to fix everything - here’s a reminder.... 🙏🏽😘✨

Trust me, I cannot WAIT to see you and for all of us to be singing TOGETHER at the top of our lungs, filling the space with our spirits! In the meantime, please be safe, be patient and I’ll be with you as soon as we can all be together again 💜💜💜 I adore you with all my heart!! 😘😘😘 Rescheduling dates and more information will be forthcoming 🙏🏽
This came from an interview with @Timesliveza . For years I’ve struggled with the word NO. It’s always been so hard for me to put myself first. Here’s something I’ve learned along the way to becoming #moremyself ... How do you deal with this? Is it easy for you? Hard? Drop some 💎 You know how much I love hearing from you 💜💜💜 Should this be our next #CheersToThEvolution 🥂on IG live??? More Myself is available now.
I went to my prom with one of my closest guy friends/brothers @iamrussjones I’ve known him since kindergarten and I know him to this day!! I don’t think I even wanted to go. I probably pretended I was too cool. I think I was just nervous and didn’t want to get caught up in all the drama... But a group of us decided to go as homies, we rented some kind of limo or maybe we just walked. 🤣🤣 honestly, I can’t remember...How about that red purse tho? Who does a red dress and a red purse?? 🤣🤣 In the end, we had fun. For those who couldn’t have prom this year, I send u love and light and I promise there will be SO many more parties to come 💜🥳
Had to post my high school graduation pic in honor of the BIG night TONIGHT!!! 👩🏽🎓✨👨🏾🎓To the class of 2020: I’m so so proud of you. You defied the odds!! Keep shinning!! ✨✨✨ I’m so excited to be a part of your celebration tonight at 8PM ET/PT big love to @kingjames & @XQamerica 💜💜 #GraduateTogether For those graduating share a memory below. If you’ve already graduated, share some wisdom! I love hearing your thoughts 💜💜💜
I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share this excerpt with you from #MoreMyself ... In the early part of my teens I wrote this letter to my father, Craig. I wanted nothing to do with him. My words came from a place of vulnerability and longing. At the time it hurt so much to experience what felt like empty promises. I swore I didn’t care, but I did and it affected me deeply. I finally had enough and wrote those words. It’s CRAZY that he kept this letter after all these years. I was so shocked when he first showed me. It was tucked away in a shoe box full of memories. I’m glad he and I can look back at it now as a sign of how far we’ve come ✨🙏🏽 If you feel moved to share, send me a deep relationship that you have had to remove from your life, or one that has been mended, or that you want to see evolve, or are working on changing. I think it’s so powerful that relationships have their own path. And sometimes they are meant to heal.... Regardless though, most of the time the healing comes from letting go. What are your thoughts? Sending u my love, light and strength #moremyself #cheerstotheevolution 🥂 🥂 More Myself is available now.
I remember this night... in black and white Stevie took out this crazy keyboard, guitar, harpsichord sick instrument he plays called the Harpejji And ANYTHING he touches your mind gets blown! 💥💥💥Period! That’s just how it goes when your touched with super powers like him! I wonder if he has ever been shy or afraid of his greatness? I wonder if he ever wondered if the world could handle and understand all that’s inside of him? Cause truly he’s an Anomaly! I wonder if he ever doubted himself and wondered if everything would work out? I bet he did, like we all do, but I’m glad he didn’t let it stop him cause who can imagine a world without HIM in it??? Not me!! Thank you Stevie!! For not only writing the most powerful songs on the planet but for reminding us that individuality can never be duplicated! And laying your soul on the page is the most beautiful truth! Happy born day king!!!
Missing you 💜 Missing performing with u 🎹 but I’m still feeling your beautiful energy from afar
Today my family and I ran 2.23 miles to honor Ahmaud Arbery. Sending super love to his family and especially his mama today on Mother’s Day 💜✨let’s keep lifting him and his family. We are in this together. #IRunWithMaud
It’s my beautiful mama’s birthday today! The lionesss that raised me, that cuddled me, loves me, listens Was hard when necessary but mostly sweet and understanding. Fierce and proud. She’s where I got my strength, my empathy, compassion, kindness and toughness. She taught me how to walk tall and proud, demand respect and gave me the ability to love through it all. I love this woman more than words could ever say! Thank you for all you’ve done Thank you for existing... I wouldn’t be half of how I am without you. You are my treasure! I cherish you, mommy!! 💜💜💜 Happy Birthday!!!!!! 🎂🎊🎉🎁🎈
Inspired by my brothers @miguel & @shaunking and all the people that have been bringing awareness to the horrific murder of #AhmaudArbery I went to runwithmaud.com to sign the petition and make calls to advocate for justice for Ahmaud and his family. Sometimes calling may feel intimidating but this site makes it really easy. Let’s keep calling until justice is served.
Ya’ll know I’m a sneaker head at heart right? 💜👟🙋🏽♀️
