Note To Self (Signed Anna Alizeti Williams)  

Blessings to you for taking the time out to read another one of my inspirational blog posts. We have made it to the month of June, so I’m focusing more on Self Care all month long. Some Queens may dedicate a day but I’m giving the entire month of June a try. 

About a week ago, I was talking to my husband about how I don’t keep myself in mind when I’m taking care of important things. I should most certainly be #1. After some thought, we found that the last time I got my nails done was about 2 years ago for our wedding. The month was April of 2015. I couldn’t believe it. It is funny but sad at the same time. It’s been quite some time since I’ve just focused on myself. Spiritually, Mentally, Emotinally, and Physically. I am learning to put in time for myself so that all these cares are aligned. This is why I have decided to write a note to myself that you may use as your “self love/care guide”.

Take only what you need. 

Anna “Alizeti” Williams, you must not forget how important you are to the universe. Your lack of attention to care for yourself will leave you in shambles.  You are useless on your journey if you are not at your best. 

Your natural beauty is your most inspirational power. Love your tresses. From your skin to your smile all the way to your kinky hair. You are unique. You possess gifts that you could never have imagined. It will take a gift to unlock or reveal another. 


Why are you so worried about what people think? They could never love you as hard as you can love yourself. Please yourself. Study yourself. Busy, Yourself! 

You must learn to fuel mind. Read more than you normally have. Let those moments of television fade away as unimportant friends in your mind. You’ll gain more from your literary tools than that of a reality television show. Your mind can be fueled with positive energies from that of yourself. 

What satisfies your mind? What soothes your mind? They too, will also help to fuel it. Your ancestors have left secrets for your mind to be protected by all costs. Keep it guarded and in  spirtual shape. 

Remember who you are. These small journeys you have set forth on will only equip you for your greatest and most difficult journey ever.  

You are loved. Love lives within you.  Love received means love will be given abundantly. If love lives inside you: 

You will love your teeth and space between them. 

You will love your high cheekbones that shift your eyes up and when you smile or laugh. 

You will love your thighs that now touch after weight fluctuation from your two blessings. 

You will love your breast. No matter the changes. They are your adornments that have helped to nourish your seeds and satisfy your king. 

You will honor your yoni. Give her time to rest and be nurtured by your king when necessary. Treat her with respect as she will always be apart of you. Pamper your yoni. Why not? 

You will embrace your growing curves that may be caressed by King. Though at times it may be hard to get into your fav pair of jeans. You backside is glorious. 

You will love your life. Understand that many things you are not complacent about may be altered in your desire or need. If it can’t,  move along in good spirits.

You will care for you crystals. Take them wherever the soles of your feet may touch. From your Pink Opal to your Selenite, honey you are protected and guided through lights of fearlessness. 

You will embrace your needs with open arms and set aside time to reassure yourself that you are capable of every goal you set. Even if odds are against you. 

You will love your mothering powers. They are always evolving due to your seeds coming of age year after year. You are perfection. You were not meant to mother the way your mother did. 

You will not feel like your finances. You are not your finances. Be rich in knowledge, love, and community. The finances will begin to fall in order. However, no reckless spending either. (A great Queen once said “Only give, when you know you will not be without.”) 


You are Anna Alizeti Williams of the Sista Queen Tribe. You are a Goddess. There is no other like you. There will be similar beings but NONE LIKE you. 

Embrace your sistrens! They are here to assist you as you will return the love through  righteous labors to assist them equally on their journeys. 

I didn’t want to make the blog too long. A part 2 maybe necessary. Thank you so much for taking the time out to visit my space and read some inspiration. It is always greatly appreciated. 

Peace and Love to all who read this message. Blessings upon you. May you love and care for yourSELF, always. 

Petals and Sunlight, 

Anna Alizeti Williams

The Power of Sistahood (Open Letter to My Lost Sistas)

My sista,

How dare you engage in this undignified competition to merely be one step higher than your sista? I’m finding it beyond belief that we are unable to exist peacefully and positively side by side. Maybe you misplaced the vision somewhere around the time you decided to trade in your teamwork makes the dream work mindset, for your new faux furs, ass shots and selfish ways.

My sista,

Let me be the Queen to remind you that WE can win together.

The Power of Sistahood is often under estimated. Do you know why?  Most times we fall short of the worlds expectations and honey those unrealistic standards are not our reality. Maybe reality tv is what they have in mind. That shit does not  reflect much of a sistahood nowadays. Remember when Big Mama would say “it’s the sign of the times.” 

My sista, 

It is time. Your sistas. Me. Your sista, have witnessed you degrade your self worth one time too many.   Our ancestors will rise from their graves in indignation of you having served up your values on platter to the wolves.  

Just in case you are not as intellectual as you used to be, meaning, you have dumbed down your resume for them folks, see, them folks don’t give a shit about you, them folk got you cooning, sista you have been the real joke. 

The moment when you choke off the fumes from that green grass they handed your ass, from the other side, which turned out to be blood on your hands, so filled with pride 

My sista, 

I know you may feel so high up, you could care less about your roots. But I won’t stop writing you letters and sending you our prayers.

To Come back, You can always come back 

Your loving sista, 

Anna Williams

INSECURE

Am I the only one who has been sleep on the HBO series: INSECURE? First off, where has this explosion of  black realness been all my life.  I mean, y’all cannot understood that from the 1st episode I was in love. I ended up binge watching  all eight episodes in one night.

I am not a big HBO viewer, so I was not ready for the laying of that D (lol) and a large helping of “I’ll beat it , beat it up.” Hahahaha. To say that I  am “into” this show is an understatement.  The characters are so identifiable.  Hold up! Don’t judge me. Not all the situations I personally experienced but it was still some real issh in every episode. I was captivated by these two black women who spoke just like my friends and I. I mean, we all curse and get ratchet from time to time. We, just like Issa and Molly were chameleons who could switch it up when necessary (like at work ). Issa and Molly are facing life ugly curves balls one day at a time.

They’re relationships are like ones we actually know. Inside each relationship whether it is the main squeeze or  the guy you call for a quickie, you’ll reflect on these messy situations. Even though I am married, not all of my close friends are and we constantly share stories about our relationships, sex, and work life. So I see them in a few episodes which made me burst into laughter or snap at the television.

I love the bond that Issa and Lawrence(boyfriend) shared. Though they faced hardships like many  couples do, they were tempted and always tested. The balance and screw ups reminded viewers you don’t miss a good thing until it’s gone. I give this series 4 thumbs up. That’s from my husband and I. For the record, Lawrence never technically left Issa, but there was a huge surprise to end the season that I was not ready for. No spoiler alerts. Go watch it for yourself lol. I am so excited and ready for season 2 Insecure. Go Black Girl! Go!

**Please keep in mind this is an adult series. I do not recommend to watch this show with anyone under the age of 18.**

Wrapping Up 2016 with Anna

It seems like forever since I last posted. I am still here inspiring the world through positive vibes and doing good deeds. A wise man once said:

Service to others is the rent you pay for

your room here on earth.

Muhammad Ali

 

A brief description of my year can be simplified as trial and error. Quitting what most people would consider a “damn good job” to venture out in search of happiness elsewhere. Allowed me to launch my own online business “EveryPartofAnna Boutique”  with the support of my fellow Queens it has done well. I also opened my home based art club Creative Connections KAC for the community youth ages 2-10.

2016 was a year of soul searching. I have been perfecting my poetic gifts to share with the world. I have been blessed to meet and befriend so many talented Queens & Kings this year. My husband and I have mastered the art of budgeting lol.

I am currently 2 weeks away from my 1 year Big Chop Anniversary. Yayyyyyyyyy!!! 1 year fully natural no heat. Its been a beautiful hair journey.

This is just a snippet of my year.Nonetheless,  I am very thankful for all the blessings and lessons received. Many souls I have decided to leave behind and very little I am willing to take forward with me in my upcoming year. When I think of 2017:

I envision BLACK LIBERATION, UNITY IN BLACK COMMUNITIES, SHARING OUR GUIDES TO OWNERSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER, SELF LOVE & PRESERVATION.

My mission will always remain the same:

To inspire the world piece by peace. Positively.

My Potty is A Monster by S. Deen (Anna’s Review)

I have found a great book for children to add to their summer reading list. The book is titled “My Potty is A Monster.” It is about a little girl named Pepper who takes a trip to her potty one night before bed. The story reveals how she conquers her fears to actually make it to the potty. I dont want to give all the details of the book away. I will leave it to you to find out how Pepper made it through the night.

This one book belongs to a series of books in the making. “The Adventures of Pepper”.

I initally bought this book for my daughter Ava. She is sort of newly potty trained and thought the book was “soooo cool”. Those are her words not mine. Ava now considers Pepper her friend. She understands that just because you are afraid does not mean you cant do something. Ava is patienly waiting for Bad Hair Day (Avaliable for PreOrder).

My son Anthony, who is 6 years old, was able to read this book to his sister perfectly. I was suprised because not all the words are what I would consider “EASY” for  a six year old to read.

Rihanna-Kiss-it-Better-Vs-Magazine-2048x1152It’s a typical scenario, right? They say “I’m not ready for a relationship, just looking for a friend and maybe a little fun along the way!” 

And, you say, “Ohh like friends with benefits, no feelings bih.” 

Going into something like “friends with benefits (FWB)” can be damaging and even dangerous to a friendship, if there are no clear boundaries on what’s expected. Without these hard limits, one of the two involved are bound to catch feelings. Sometimes both. I’m not saying setting boundaries will keep you from having feelings entirely. It’s natural to have some sort of affection for a person you’ve been sleeping with on the regular, especially if you hang out in ways other than horizontally. But, when you are in this type of arrangement, it’s best to have clear cut ideas on what is and isn’t okay for the both of you. I call these limitations…
