Janelle Monae rocks !!! November 6, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — allnaturaltrini @ 2:29 am

Janelle Monae’s acceptance speech for her ‘Young Gifted and Black Award ‘ at the BET’S Black Girls that Rock Award show 2012 was not just an acceptance speech it was one that that was said straight from the heart.
Not as commercial as Rihanna or Beyonce, Janelle is a formidable talent in her own right who refuses to conform to the norms or be pinned in a box by the demands of the Industry. She is truly a role model for all young people to believe in yourself no matter what society may dictate .

So for those who missed the speech I have posted it here for you. 

“When I started my musical career I was a maid, I used to clean houses. My parents—my mother was a proud janitor, my step-father who raised me like his very own worked at the post office and my father was a trash man. They all wore uniforms. And that’s why I stand here today in my black and white and I wear my uniform to honor them,” Monáe said, fighting back tears.

“This is a reminder that I have work to do, I have people to uplift, I have people to inspire,” she said after explaining that she grew up in Wyandotte County, “the poorest county” in Kansas City.

“And today I wear my uniform proudly as a Covergirl,” she told the audience reffering to her deal with the cosmetics giant.

Monáe then went on to deliver a message directed to her young fans but one that could resonate with fans of all ages and gender.

“I want to be clear young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Covergirl, I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned through my journey that perfection is the often the enemy of greatness. Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes other uncomfortable.”

This last line is what stood out the most to me and this is the message I want all young girls especially black girls to remember ‘Embrace what makes you unique’ as this is where our greatness lies.

 

Finding the right Brotha October 25, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — allnaturaltrini @ 5:59 pm

Is there really a Mr. Right ?

So how come some women have found him and others are still looking.

How many of us swore to have found him to only be disappointed time and time again.

The truth is sistahs there is no such thing as Mr. Right but it is possible that you can groom and mould him to your expectations. Set the standard .  Yes we are only human and sometimes we get involved in relationships before we are ready or before he is ready but timing is everything. Start with a friendship and then decide whether the relationship is worth investing your emotions. Remember don’t invest all at once beware of red flags and take heed beware of possible danger like baggage from an old relationship (the ex factor) or personal issues  like the mama’s boy.

I strongly believe finding the right person is just like achieving success in anything else ,it takes hard work and a positive energy and mindset. First you must love yourself and enjoy the life you live, know where you want to be and you will atract someone that is right for you.

Now you may say that after I do all this work  there are so few brothers especially in Trinidad who are real men!

Very true but I always say the world is your oyster…. travel, see the world, get involved in different activities , challenge yourself and grow. He might just be right under your nose, don’t look, let him find you.

 

 

So Blessed !

“I woke up in the morning feeling fresh to death
  I’m so blessed, yes yes
   I went to sleep stressed, woke up refreshed
I’m so blessed, yeah yes…….”

                                                           Jill Scott

You know that feeling when you’re just happy to be alive. Beautiful sunshine all around, you are at peace with yourself and you just feel like giving thanks. Giving thanks for everything even the trials you faced and those you still face, you just feel at  peace in God’s love. There is no greater feeling on this earth and nothing can compare to it. You just want to shout ‘praise him ‘ !

You feel victorious, you feel like there is nothing in the world you cannot do.

This is the kind of joy I am talking about , a joy in the spirit, in your soul. A peace that passes understanding. This is a spititual awareness that one gets when you have found peace within yourself.

This is not a peace that can be found by only going to church, or by just reading the Bible or going to a prayer meeting, this soul awakenning is reached by deep soul searching and self fulfillment, being at peace with one’s self and loving yourself and mankind.

I wish that your life be eternally blessed !

So Blessed !

 

Eat, Pray,Love – One womans search for everything

Have you ever felt that you had achieved everything a budding career,the ‘perfect marriage’, the beautiful home but still some thing was missing ?

Then the movie Eat ,Pray and Love is talking to you.

In the movie Elizabeth Gilbert 32, successful writer (based on the life of the real author), married with her own home, seemed to have everything society says was important to be happy, but yet she was not. Liz was searching for more. She was unhappy in her marriage which she soon ended and entered a rebound relationship which also did not last. Feeling alone and devastated she remembered the words of a medicine man whom she met earlier while writing on vacations in Bali who said that one day she would be back to study with him. Liz soon had what Oprah calls an ‘Aha ‘ moment. She finalised her difficult divorce and began the next year travelling around the world funded from a book deal by her publisher.

Her sojourn took her to Italy (Eat) where she spent four months eating and enjoying life, being a free spirit, in India she spent three months finding her spirituality (pray) and the remaining year was spent in Indonesia finding balance and (love) with a factory owner from Brazil.

For many women this movie is right up our alley and we can relate to the theme in one way or the other.

(By the way I heard the book is even better).

All Natural Trini believes we should all aspire to be the best that we can be, not just what society says we should attain for happiness but we should quench the hunger in our spirit and listen to our inner being .

We give this movie a thumbs up.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life
Stop worrying and start living and take everything in stride
Tommorrow is promised to no one, but the present is all that we have
so time to start living in the now and not what we had
Will we ever learn to stop making an excuse
when the path we walk is the one we choose
Our lives are full of endless possibility
make your dreams a reality just wait and see
things may not always go how we want it
but with God on our side we should never be daunted
Don’t let negativity hold us back
because obstacles are there to keep us on track
thank God for the trials for its a blessing
For without them we would have learnt nothing
You’re shining now see what you could achieve
I told you all you had to do was just believe
As your blessings flow and you continue to rise
always remember to say thanks before you close your eyes
Bless others on their journey too
Just as God has been so good to you
release all negativity and hurt inside
and remember love is stronger than pride
we all are connected in this universe
so keep your head up and put God first
