No. (Is a Full Sentence)

If you have been noticing our posts have slowed down. That is very intentional. We are at a place of knowing when to pause and reflect. We don’t force creativity. If we don’t feel like doing a post for the blog we don’t and we when we want to rest we do. I learned at a very young age how to say no and how to not do something I don’t want to. This blog was made from love and we want to continue to pour love into it when our cups are full. Honestly our cups haven’t been full. We have been working non stop and taking on additional responsibilities. It was getting to the point of not having enough energy to do things that we enjoy.

I want to remind you that NO is a full sentence and that rest is revolutionary. Black women especially need to REST and take care of ourselves. Rest is not weakness, taking a pause is not weakness, leaving a toxic relationship/job is not weakness, asking for help is not weakness and being vulnerable is not weakness.

Set boundaries. Be alone. Delete numbers. Block IG followers. Whatever you need to do to be the best you can be. You owe it to your future self 🙂
