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

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.

October Update with Anna

I’m back and welcoming positive energy into this fall season. I know I have been ghost for a month but yess, I am back. I promise I will get back to blogging more. There are so many other “must do’s” that I have to get in the habit of. I made a list for myself:

  • Blog More 
  • Revamp YouTube Channel 
  • Promote More (Everything I have my name on) 
  • Post more mini-inspire clips on IG & Facebook 
  • Use my calendar more 
  • Stick to my calendar lol
  • Update Vision board 

Those are just a few of the hundred of things on my must do consistently list. I am always work even when I am working. What I mean by that is, I make sure that anytime I have is well used toward any goals I set for myself. I am so busy these days. I often feel like I need an assistant. Due to budgeting issues I am basically manage everything myself. 

Well that’s a little update on how I’ll be taking on this October. 

Stay tuned for all things Positive from me.

#WhereDidMySummerGo

Can you believe it?

Summer is almost over. It’s like it flew by in an eye blink. I guess, with all the back to school sales on  uniforms and school supplies confirms that summer is comong to an end.

I hope your summer was very great to you. I would say mine was pretty cool.

Our 4th of July family trip was nice. As it is every year, spent with my mother,other siblings, and nieces.

My boutique EVERYPARTOFANNA BOUTIQUE has been doing very well for itself as an online store where I sell my art and handmade accessories for all Queens. I had the pleasure of doing a custom painting for a beautiful Queen as a gift to her mother.

One of most greatest summer moments who be how I fueled my energy into a peaceful protect called RISE UP WALK 4 CHANGE (A BLACK UNITY EVENT). This was walk I put togteher on 7/24/2016. We walked through the neighborhood of Collier City in Pompano Beach, Fl. Close family and friends were those in attendance. We marched on the streets and stood at the corner of busy intersections to  make our voice heard on police brutality and unifying the black community. It was one of the best feelings I could have ever felt. I was making a change with my kids and husband by side. No, this did not make the news or headlines but we did it for our community. My husband and I are not done with our community and county yet. There are so many more events to come in the future.

 

Well the kids are ready to return to school on August 22nd. My son Aj will be officially in the 1st grade. From EveryPartofAnna and family we wish all the students a blessed and productive school year.
