When you belong to your family, your decisions are seen as enmeshed with the family’s decisions. It can be hard to explain to your parents why culturally prescribed ‘milestones’ aren’t necessarily your jam. This usually looks like no boys under 25, get married by 28 and kids by 30. Preferably, with medicine/engineering/PhD, cooking classes #sanskar & skinny bod thrown in the mix. - Traditionally, this probably made sense shorter times to acquire a qualification/career, science hadn’t caught up to IVF, life was less mobile & the goals of previous generations were limited to the #americandream (ghar, gaarhi, kids- the works). Perhaps, even boredom and existential anxiety played a role in staying on the #hamsterwheel. Today, life is different. Qualifications take longer, you’re expected to have worked internationally or volunteered locally, friends are long-distance, we’re setting higher standards for ourselves and people we date, reducing our carbon footprints + growth (emotional, career wise, energies etc) is a thing! As easy as it theoretically sounds to call your parents out on the logic behind this stuff, making space for ‘you’ as an individual can be so difficult! Sometimes, it feels like you are speaking in another language and the idea about forging your own path can be met with cynicism, “you are not one in a trillion people” and “we have experience”. It’s a hard slog & every individual’s solution to finding a middle ground with family will look different. Sometimes helping parents SEE you as an individual through communicating your dreams and aspirations can help them see your point more clearly. And even though it doesn’t seem like you are making progress, EVERY small shift through communication and perseverance is a step in the right direction! However, despite your best efforts, this might not always be the case. What might start as a sad resignation can be an empowering journey to redefine your boundaries and reiterate what you are willing to accept for yourself. Ultimately, it’s helpful to consider that whatever decisions you make, the costs are ultimately YOURS to bear!

Since we are pretending the outrage over #Jlo and #Shakira is about "the children," let's consider what they're learning in the aftermath. Today children are learning: You can be whatever you want - unless someone's opinion is that it is too sexy. You can work for weeks or months to perform well in your career & someone, who can't accomplish what you have, will still critique you. You can celebrate your culture - as long as you do it in a way that makes other people comfortable. You can eat well/train to be healthy and strong, but again, don't be too sexy. It offends people. You can make bold political statements, but people will quickly ignore that to discuss your sexiness instead. When people say "women's empowerment," it only applies to women who dress and act a certain way. When people champion body positivity & self love, they still want to control how you move and cover your body. If you see a woman dancing & wearing clothes that show off her body, it's ok to reduce her to a sexual object AND then blame her for that. Brown girls - your bodies and sexuality will be policed & judged. Just because. People will be louder about their outrage against your body than they will be about the mistreatment of people who look like you. And sadly, other women will be the loudest critics. #fearlesslyhappy

I started learning music from a very young age. I was never really good in music theory, and still today. I was passionate about creating, about the abnormal state of wakefulness I was able to feel when jumping in the musical pool. Everytime I do compose or design a sound I enter in different dimensions, transcendental states. It is like meditation or doing yoga. I am sure somewhere I am altering part of my brain. Music is my freedom. A projection of my spirit. My second religion. I am so happy to share a part of me everyday with all of you, my friends. #inspiration #music #happy#religion #art#music#electronic#Pii.xel#music#artist#songs#singing#fun#punk#electro#future#21savage#sydney #logicprox #brownwomen#enjoylife #musicaelectronica#underground#docimastic#80s#musique#electronique#art#musicvideo#westafrica#time#producer#manifest

“Unbought and unbossed” that was Shirley Chisolm’s campaign slogan as she ran for presidential nomination, she was the first Black woman to run for a nomination under a major party. Already the first Black woman in Congress, she fought ahead of her time. Many women and Black Americans did not support her, not because she wasn’t qualified, but she never backed down. She never downplayed being a woman, she embraced it and flaunted it. She often said “between being black and being a woman, the biggest problem is being a woman”. Name a strong woman you think would or should run for president. . . . . #bgvherstory #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #blackwomenhistory #bgv #bgvf #pitchcompetition #womeninbusiness #entrepreneurlife #blackandbrownwomen #blackgirlmagic #capital #venture #venturecapital #blackgirlventures #socialcapital #brownwomen #blackwomenlead #glitchthecode #entrepreneur #blackwomenmagic #womentowatch #ecosystembuilder

When we habitually react, situations and other people control us. When we consciously respond, we are in charge. This is something that nobody can take away from us. . Tag someone who needs to be reminded that they are powerful! . fuelled by @happywayau

THIS is the kind of things we need to see. OVER and OVER again. . That ‘just one slap’ someone thought is excusable? It became domestic violence today. That pathetic ‘what was she wearing’ question that someone asked? It became rapists’ God damn validity today. The first lie you were told to ‘let go’ and ignore? It became their cheating habit today. . The first time he yells, he cheats, he lies, he abuses and someone thinks it’s okay? THATS where the damage starts. Because those first times have sadly become OUR LIFE. And the excuses this world gives men, have become the root causes for strengthening the chains of patriarchy. So ACT and STOP it right where it begins. At the #first and #justoneslap And stop holding women accountable for ‘making the house’ while excusing men for ‘making mistakes’. Either both ‘build a home’ together or she is OUT. Enough is Enough. . . So proud of films like #thappad and actors like @taapsee for bringing such IMPORTANT topics into light. THANK YOU 🙏🏻 . . . . . . . #nodomesticviolence #womenempowerment #thappad #equality #nopatriarchy #womensupportingwomen #speakup #lahore #pakistan #brownskingirls #brownwomen

At the housing justice town hall this past weekend, Congresswoman Tlaib brought up how important and impactful it is to have everyday people run for office. People from all experiences, at all levels of education and income. I’ve seen in my own work how much gate-keeping happens at every level. 🔸 It’s been an internal challenge - and continues to be - figuring out how to interact with racist institutions and white-majority spaces. Often it doesn’t feel like it’s worth the mental exhaustion. 🔸 Thank you @rashidatlaib for reminding me how public office *can* look. 🌹 It can look like a brown woman telling it exactly like it is and being heard.

Lola Bunny’s character 🏀, as well as other women on TV + in Sports brought relatability and happiness to me as a kid. There’s no other feeling like being represented and respectfully seen. The Brown Skin Lady Show LLC initiative was created to uplift and make spaces for women identifying folks who have been marginalized in our community, and give space for them to showcase their talents. As All Star Weekend approaches, we want to be a part of the festivities in the city, but most importantly create more avenues for Women to be involved with said festivities. We are seeing a lack of visibility, and we want to answer to it. Please join us for our first party of the year during All-Star weekend and come have a great time with us.

This is a @byterryofficial foundation. Can we please just stop this in 2020. What is the point in making a crap shade range where you leave out perhaps the majority of women? Why? Do brands enjoy making women feel like crap and unworthy? #Byterryofficial #byterryuk #inclusivitymatters #colouredwomen #brownwomen #blackwomen #blackbeauty #blackwomenwearmakeup #blackwomenusebeautyproducts #fail #majorfail #shaderangesucks

💎💎💎 Happy Friday!!! It's All In How You See It!!! 👓 CHECK THE PRESCRIPTION OF YOUR GLASSES "The world is as you see it. You have your own glasses with your own colors and prescriptions, and you perceive the world through those glasses. That is why the world appears to you as it does. However your mind is, however your heart is, however your attitude is that's how you see the world. Therefore wear good glasses with the right prescription." Swami Muktananda
