... There is magic.
Honestly if I had a dollar for every time I said that #BlackGirlMagic events would be hosted on a private island somewhere in the Pacific, all expenses paid for. Jokes aside though I must say there is something beautiful about gathering together as sisters and sharing time.
On the 7th of September I had the pleasure of collaborating with THEBLVCKMUSE for a Goals & Head Wraps session in Melbourne. Elesha (founder of THEBLVCKMUSE) and I met on the 'gram after I had noticed she had hosted events for Melanin Queens. What started as an email at midnight blossomed into a beautiful gathering of sisters of colour. During the session we talked self-care, self-love and its importance in our goal setting process. I shared one of my favourite quotes: self-care isn't a reward it is a part of the process. We shared passions and explored how we went about discovering our purpose. We shared time and soaked in each other's magic. Such a brilliant afternoon!
Thank you to the beautiful Dannie Hill and Ntombi Moyo for sharing your journey with us and showing us that our passion is the fire that should fuel our actions and the work we do. Thank you to Liyat for the beautiful photos you took of the day, you captured all the #blackgirlmagic. Thank you Saba for the delicious food and atmosphere. Thank you to the sisters that came out and vibed with us, you are love and you are loved. Remember: I am committed to allowing myself to be the best version of my self.
