Commit to Yourself.



by Leandra of What My World's Like

“Commit to yourself” is my mantra for the week. I’m certain it’ll last longer than a week, but for now, that’s what it is.

It’s amazing how much space in our lives we can fill with things that are mostly inconsequential and detract from what actually matters to us, Twitter and Facebook, for example.

How to Get High For Free


By Leandra of What My World's Like

We’re all looking for pure bliss and resounding ecstasy. We want to drop our worries and feel alive, feel connected to the magic of this world. All too often, though, this desire results in the abuse of alcohol, drugs and other legal or illegal substances. In using or abusing these substances, the user often does more harm than good.

But alcohol and drugs are completely unnecessary and actually quite costly to both your body and your wallet. There’s another way.

It’s natural. It’s safe. It’s free. It’s legal and always available to you.  I’m talking about natural highs.

I Used to Hate Myself.



by Leandra of What My World's Like

I used to hate myself. Used to hate so much about my appearance. My hair when it wasn’t “done”, meaning perfectly straight, which it is naturally incapable of ever being. My body because it wasn’t slim enough; too much muscle and too much fat in comparison to the svelte bodies I began to crave mine to be. I absorbed all the images this society and its media dished out to me about what was beautiful, and by omission, what was not beautiful. The regarded beauty was all white and almost none of it reflected the characteristics inherent to my ethnicity, whose beauty was dismissed to the point of disappearance.

Hate is a strong word and when I use it in reference to someone else’s feelings about themselves, they always resist. “I don’t hate myself.” Oh, okay. It is a hard pill to swallow.

You are a Process.

by Leandra of What My World's Like

I am a process. You are a process. We are a process. Each of us is perpetually ‘becoming’. There is no [natural] end. What doesn’t grow is dead.

Perfection is illusory, yet I strive to manifest it in the most possible way by simply being better.
Sometimes, I fail. Sometimes, I succeed. Some lessons take a while to truly get and some changes take longer to implement than desired. Everything in its course as everything happens in its own time. Knowing that, however, shouldn’t negate exercising effort.

You Ever Tell Yourself to Shut Up?


You Ever Tell Yourself to Shut Up?
by Leandra of What My World's Like

A few months ago, I met these awesome twin pastors and in a sermon, one of them said he tried to only say what was necessary one day and found himself having to be very quiet. It made me think about how much we say. How many words and ideas and opinions come out of our mouths. How much of it is necessary or even relevant? How much of it reflects the type of person we want to be?

At a Standstill- Natural Hair Growth

by Noni of Three Naturals

Ever felt like your hair’s stopped growing? Ever felt that you’ve reached your ‘limit’?  As I write this post I totally feel like I’ve reached my hair zenith. If there is such a thing. I feel like I’ve exhausted all my hair growing ability and the length that I’m at is where I’ll always be from here on out.

That’s so dramatic right? Thank God that there’s a difference between feeling and knowing.

Whenever I get into this funk of feeling I have to remind myself of what I know to be true.

- I know that as long as I’m alive my hair is essentially always growing. Just like my fingernails, just like my eyebrows, just like my leg hair…
