Confessions of Two Melanin Girls
Let's Get Real and SUPER Honest
Have you ever felt like deep down, you're supposed to be doing more with your life? That theres a bigger purpose? That you're supposed to be doing something different? You have numerous emotions, feelings and ideas that are swarming around in your mind that could be BIG ! But instead of making moves, you're just going from day to day existing . I don't know about you, but we certainly have!
Honestly, we've been kind of existing through life from day to day. Just existing and not living. Watching others thrive, succeed in their dream careers and just slay through life. Now, don't get me wrong, we're doing well for ourselves and are more than blessed. (Thank you Jesus). However, we've both had this feeling and idea that there's more for us. That we have a purpose and mission to do more for ourselves and for others. If you're feeling stuck, not very motivated and have had a lack of inspiration recently or ever in life, I know you understand what I'm talking about.
So let's be super honest, why haven't you followed your dreams? Why haven't you talked to the guy you've been eyeing for so long? What or who are you waiting on? We spend so much of our time waiting, that sometimes we forget to get out, LIVE and experience life.
How, What, When, Why, Where?
For a while now, we both felt as if we were supposed to do something together, something BIGGER than either us. Something that would allow us to share our experiences. But most importantly, something that would encourage and inspire women to be CONFIDENT in their choices, HAPPY with their selves, and INSPIRED to do and be whatever they desire. However, we didn't know how we were going to do it.
Fast forward to Essence Festival 2017, we both had this type of "aha moment." You know that moment where you just know what you're supposed to do and how you're going to do it. We knew that we wanted to encourage and inspire women. Society has an idea of what women should be, do, wear, and etc. However, it's just not realistic. We've seen so many women lose themselves trying to be "perfect", keep up with others, and not be themselves.
As a result, we created All Things Melanin to celebrate women, encourage, inspire, motivate and allow women to know their not alone in life. We all struggle, we all have things we want to work on and we all need uplifting and positive vibes. And here, that's what we're going to do. From relationships, career ups and downs, travel and every day things that occur daily, we're being honest, open and transparent.
As we share our experiences and stories, we hope and pray that you will know and understand that you are enough and that whatever you desire, you can achieve. It is our hope that you will be inspired in something you read or watch on our platform. As women, when we support each other, uplift one another, we're better together than we are as one.
