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

Our Black Story: Queens Edition 

This is our Black Story: Queens Edition, so I thought I would shed light on some of our Melanated Queens who we may not know of. I have put a small list together of a few names that were not familar to myslef. I may have heard of them but I was not knoweledgable of their contributions.


Willie B. Barrow was a religious leader and civil rights activist. Reverend Willie T. Barrow was born on December 7, 1924. Yes, she is a Sagittarius sister.

Barrow was raised in Burton, Texas, where as a student she led a demonstration of rural African American schoolchildren against a segregated school system. Tell me that isn’t black girl magic in the making.

In 1962, she worked with the Rev. Jesse Jackson to create Operation Breadbasket, an organization focused on meeting the needs of underserved black communities. Rev. Jackson would later found Operation P.U.S.H (People United to Serve Humanity) based on Operation Breadbasket. She replaced Jackson as executive director of Operation PUSH in 1984.

This Queen has also crusaded for issues such as AIDS in the black community, children’s welfare, and domestic violence.

Marian Wright Edelman studied at Spelman College, abroad on a Merrill scholarship, and she traveled to the Soviet Union with a Lisle fellowship. I haven’t had the chance to attend Spelman but a few of my sistrens have. Ayyyee. She also studied at Yale and graduated Law School. She held a job in New York working for the NAACP Legal and Defense Fund, and then in Mississippi for the same organization.

Marian Wright Edelman established the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) in 1973 as a voice for poor, minority and handicapped children. She served as a public speaker on behalf of these children, and also as a lobbyist in Congress, as well as president and administrative head of the organization.


Myrlie Evers-Williams, original name Myrlie Louise Beasley (born March 17, 1933, Vicksburg, Mississippi, U.S.), African American activist and the wife of civil rights leader Medgar Evers, whose racially motivated murder in 1963 made him a national icon. In 1995–98 Evers-Williams was the first woman to head the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People

She published the memoir For Us, the Living (1967), earned a degree in sociology at Pomona College (1968), and made an unsuccessful bid for election to the U.S. Congress (1970).

She left the post three years later and founded the Medgar Evers Institute (later the Medgar and Myrlie Evers Institute) in Jackson.


Audre Lorde attended Hunter College and Columbia University and was a librarian for several years before publishing her first volume of poetry, First Cities, in 1968.

She was an African-American poet and essayist who gave voice to issues of race, gender and sexuality. Lorde’s love of poetry started at a young age, and she began writing as a teenager. I read about her on my journey for African American women who were poets and authors. I love her. She attended Hunter College.

Audre Lorde battled cancer for more than a decade and spent her last few years living in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Around this time, she took an African name, Gamba Adisa, meaning “she who makes her meaning clear. She described herself as A self-described “black feminist lesbian, mother, warrior, poet.”

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.

rs_1024x759-161212095444-1024-insecure-issa-rae-3-ch-121216

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.

 

161110-ep06-issa-hugging-lawrence-1920

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.**

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.

1f55b54a-7f49-4f6d-b927-4bd714138938

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.

Work Life Struggles…

Does anyone know what  “Work Life Struggles” are?

  • When your place of employment is on your list of top 3 things you hate.
  • You do your best to arrive to work on time but you still arrive late.
  • You hate going there but you have a life full of responsibilities so you have to endure.
  • You know your potential is for beyond the position you currently hold so you give 210% just because you have mastered that title.( & you don’t want anyone in your face saying you don’t do enough)
  • You hate your job but every morning you come in with a smile on your face just to get you through the day but you run out  as soon your shift is up.
  • Having to dull your shine because opportunity Is not there.
  •  Hating your job so much to the point you don’t want your lazy coworkers saying anything to you.
  • When you take your lunch breaks and don’t want to come back

 

  Many of us have all experienced this in life from job to job. Personally, I am an artist. Creativity and an eagerness for more knowledge is my strength. Wherever I go in life I set  goals with time frames. I try to always meet the due date of each goal. I never plan to be just a worker at the bottom of the corporate web(Yeah it’s not a ladder anymore). Any position that I am, I master that and I get hungry for growth. Even when I hate a job I still love opportunities to grow. I would never work for a company that has no growth opportunities. If I feel like I am being kept still due to the lack of management wanting to train. I will get bored and move on through prayer and faith.

 

 How to deal with Work Life Struggles:

  • Choosing the right prayer for each and everyday(know that this situation is temporary)
  • Having at least one great friend at work who helps you get through your days
  • Know you are potential and God will move you into your passion (You have to listen to him)
  • Don’t be complacent CHANGE is always possible
  • Be sure to always do your best. No matter how you feel about the job. If you hate it that much quit.  (Your customers and clients should not have to deal with your attitude because you hate your job lol)

How do you deal with Work Life Struggles? Comment and let me know.

 

Don’t forget. Keeping it pretty, is keeping it positive!

Anna’s Inspired

I think its about time I pick up a few new talents. Well they aren’t talents yet but they will be. I say this because everything I put my mind to start, I finish it with a bang. I know that I have a mind full of creative ideas that I am super excited to bring to life.

There is this Black Artist Connect group I am apart of on Facebook. The group is so inspiring. Numerous of black artist post their creations some old and others new. Their processes are so beautiful and like supplements for the soul to the brain. Yesss, you get so inspired. The page is filled with artist of all kinds. It’s not just art by paint, sketches, or even digital work. Some of them are welders, photographers, musicians, and even writers. The group is everything, trust me.

A few of the artists I actually follow on Instagram. One in particular I just purchased a magnificent notebook from her, where she has her artwork drawn out on the front page. I am waiting for it to be shipped. I will post once I receive it. She is very talented. I never knew there were so many young black artists in the world.

So with all this being said. I am reopening my artistic doors that lead to my soul. I remember sketching clothing designs when I was in middle and high school. So I want to add artist under my belt. With practice all great things become perfect. I am SUPER excited.

Evolution of Self: There’s More!!

1362201-designstyle-welcome-m

Hey Everyone,

I hope this month has been great to you all. Lets dig a little deeper into self  growth.

I have learned the best way to grow is trying new things. So let’s get New. New things can take place in your life, career, goals, hobbies, and anything you want to make flawless that consist of YOU.

Make it New!

Trying new things is a sure way to improve self growth. You can open your mind to new adventures and people. For instance, if you love shopping on the weekends during your downtime. Taking walks through the local mall strips that are along lakes and nature parks will help you to relax while shopping. This is a nice way for you to familiarize yourself with the environment and also learn new things about your community. A new hobby could be going on bike rides, picking a new activity to do every weekend. Learning a new language or eating at a new and different restaurant than you normally do is a easy. Trying new things like I stated before will help  you to have an open mind about many things in life.

 

 

Dear Future Me:

Have you ever thought about writing a letter to your future self. The letter could be set for you 2,5, or 10 years from now. It’s up to you. Writing a future letter to yourself will help you see your growth on where you are currently to where you aim to be. For me, I don’t ever want to let myself down. So writing a letter helps me to map out my journey to meeting any goals and following through. Try it and let me know how it works for you.

No Zones Allowed!

Getting out your comfort zone is a sure fire way to ensure self growth. Can you name a person who has done the same thing for years and never changed anything but they have grown? Growth comes with change and change happens when you get out of your comfort zone. Maybe you are shy. Try being the first to introduce yourself on a date night with new friends or in group events.  What you are not as confident as other.  You could try recording yourself in a video and post to your social media page and say two tears in a bucket! (LOL YOU KNOW THE REST).

I honestly feel as though you can never stop growing. We set the boundaries for yourselves and we can change them when necessary. I am an avid reader and love to expand my knowledge. I still do have a few comfort zones that I need to get out of. I am working on them this year though.

 

Don’t forget:

  • Try new things
  • Write a letter to your future self to monitor your growth
  • Get out of your comfort zone
