THE #WELLNESSSOWHITE DEBATE: IS IT RACIST?

IMG_9191.JPG

I woke up this morning struggling to post... It’s “complicated” this womanhood stuff. I’m squashed somewhere in between happily running a bath for my man and footing the bill, but I have no interest in shit like changing a tyre, and I want the car door opened for me. I require a partner who can drive, but you’ll mainly see me in the driving seat. Often I want killer eye liner and Foxy Brown lips, but some days I don’t even put knickers on... *cue India Arie* The last few weeks have been wild for me. Work and life pressure have been real, mainly cos I think I can do it all by myself cos I’m a super woman, no?! But I’ve gained power learning I can’t. Along the way I’ve had some pretty dope conversations with some awesome women and they’ve all had my back and supported me even if they haven’t realised it! I’ve come away with an overwhelming feeling of “wow, when we are on this ting together, the pot soon starts to boil”. There’s a lot to complain about, but when I look around at my ride or dies, my circle of feminine energy and the legacy of women before me, I feel proud and powerful. 
It was also two years ago today, I co-founded and launched Gyal Flex. A small idea that turned into a sell out event that holds a small space in so many women’s hearts (the odd man too 👏🏾). We’re just getting started! Happy International Women’s Day!🔥

The next Gyal Flex will be 30.03.19 tickets released soon!

Trying to carve out time for myself, without the feelings of guilt. The to do list trolling my mind. Does anyone else feel like this??? Please say “YES”! All the things I shoulda done, all the things I woulda done and all the things I coulda done if I were... if I were what exactly? The truth is, I’m doing my best. I don’t know the answers, I’m not following a road map, but I’ve got blind faith in my now and my future. That’s all I got, but it’s enough. Trying to enjoy the now, because if I can’t enjoy the here, will I ever get to the there? 
The day this picture was take, I remember thinking how “easy” it was to be the person I wanna be when I’m away from my actual life, a life I love (don’t get it twisted), with less stress and more space to make my time work for me. Thanks holding space for me to take time out @lululemonuk and for reminding me to work on my #tapas, you da bestest!
