Sometimes I’ll look at myself and be like, ‘Dang girl, you got a lot of stretch marks. But then I’m like, ‘That’s just the road map of my strength. But for me, I think it all starts with self, and how you feel about yourself that really matters. It doesn’t matter what other people think of you. Regardless of how much melanin we have, or how many pimples we have, or how curly or straight our hair is. It’s really about what we have inside of us, that makes us who we are.
The key is to be okay with knowing that you are you, and some people are okay with things that you’re not gonna be okay with, you know? And you have to do what’s right for you and just live in the truth. Because if you’re doing it for something else, it just never goes right.

–Orlando Bloom said to Vanity Fair about his split with Katy Perry.
OK, I’ve been really trying to practice the Oprah Winfrey ritual: I check in with gratitude and grace when I wake up. I can be in a little bit of a state of overwhelm and panic if I don’t start out being connected to grace and gratitude. Life is just getting better. For me, 40 feels like a beginning. I’m in the middle of so much new – with this career, the kids, and I’m still sort of a newlywed. I’m excited to be at this stage in life.
–Kerry Washington said to Glamour about being happy and at peace.
I think the lesson is that when you give Black voices a platform and the opportunity to tell our story, we will tell good stories just like anybody else.
