To Smile Was My Only Inflection

Struggling to Self love in summer

Self portrait. #summer2015 During a time of major transition. When the events in my life had me feeling grimy and less than powerful, unattractive and sore in heart. The sun was brighter and warmer that day, managed to hug me out of bed and into these clothes, onto this chair and under the trees where I could breathe. Suddenly, shit didn’t feel so bad. Reminded me of that unstoppable time on the train from Savannah when I knew then that my existence was never meaningless. And just like that my soul was warmed to the bone. To smile was my only inflection. #tag #theeamazinggrace #girlrillavintage #selflove #sunnydays #soullight #winning

#‎tbt‬ i remember exactly where i stood-in the living-room, next to the french doors in my apartment on e. clay st. it was hot in the early summer of #2010. i had just turned 30 in march of that year and was having defeating thoughts about aging and he always made me feel ageless and beautiful. he was brilliant. he captured the parts of me that i valued less at that time and made me love them. thank you for that.

Eff Playing Hard to Get By Thee Amazing Grace

I think the major problem I have with dating is the whole, “play hard to get” vibe. If we digging each other why are we “playing” aside from pleasuring each other? I don’t overstand. Like my homegirl Kim Katrin Milan said, “if you love them at 4am text them and tell them.” I don’t want to hold back how I feel just because of what society tells me is “normal” timing in relationships. I want to reach out when I feel it without fear that I’m being annoying or pushing one away. We know what it is and most know what we want, so yea…I don’t need 9 inch nails in my glitter. I need more glitter. Attractive & honest vibes come to me. -Thee Amazing Grace #gracieberryIMG_7614
