So #grateful for another year on the planet, #thankful for the continued #selflove lessons and beyond THRILLED to know YOU! Whoo hoo! Now, let’s par-tay!! #sacredbombshell #sacredandthecity #july29 #birthday #yay

Happy Sunday from my gorgeous 4-day old #niece! :-) Here’s what Ava has taught me so far… Of course she cries when she is in need aka saying I am hungry (feed me) or I am uncomfortable (change me) BUT she also reaches out (cries/screams) when she simply wants to be held. This is a legitimate need— for babies and adults. We forget that it’s not only okay but necessary to realize that you need to be held— and to ask to be held. A #baby’s mental and physical state can deteriorate if she’s not properly loved up on— and the same goes for US. #sacreandthecity (P.S. LOOK how CUTE my lil boo boo is. I asked for candy cigars to pass out the day she was born and the store gave me that cartoon cookie.)

Happy#SelfLoveSaturday! I pulled 4 of my #African #Goddess #Affirmation Cards for us and we got the Goddess of Dreams, Goddess of the Moon, Goddess of Power, and Goddess of Support. Yeah! Say it loud: “I have more power than I ever thought possible.” And “Life loves me!” #sacredbombshell #sacredandthecity  Oh, and lovely Kara Stevens @frugalfeminista is doing a giveaway of my cards on her blog…

Like Miss Badu said, I pick my friends like I pick my fruit, er, veggies in this case! :-) #Gardening is the most #sacredbombshell way to “pick” what’s for dinner. #throwbackthursday #tbt #sacredandthecity

#ThrowbackThursday Last Summer in my parents’ garden! :-) Here’s what fresh collard greens really look like! Granddaughter of farmers on both sides checking in. We are far too removed from the Mother Earth. You can have your hands in soil on Saturday and still rock your Jimmy Choos on Monday. It doesn’t get more #sacred, #bombshell, and #organic than this! #garden #collardgreens #soulfood #sacredandthecity

How to Rise and Shine! Having the Confidence to Step Up with Abiola Abrams

(Source: youtube.com)

YAY! She is here! #BirthDay LOVE to my brand new niece Miss Ava Abrams. Isn’t she lovely? I cried when I saw her beautiful face for the first time! Thank you to my brilliant brother and his beautiful wife @uluvtam for bringing this precious baby into the world. They invited me into the #deliveryroom to witness her birth, but Miss Ava came early and her Tante Abiola didn’t make it in time. By the time we met she was already at least an hour old but it was love at first site. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your future Senator, Ambassador, Artist, Astrophysicist, Neurosurgeon or President. How blessed we are that she’s in the world. :-) #humbled #honored #babygirl #newbaby #babyabrams #sacredbombshell #sacredandthecity

Sending LOVE to #SacredBombshell Charron Monaye who interviewed me for CNN iReport! She starts off her great article (tinyurl.com/cnn-Abiola) saying that she was surprised that I replied and congratulated her on her successes and supported her on the personal troubles she shared while she was interviewing me. Of course, sis! :-) The lesson is that we are ALL in this together. WHAT IF we approached every situation expecting positive responses, expecting good things, and LOVE flowing back to us? Mmmmmm. How delicious that would feel! (Note to self, too…)

The Sacred Bombshell knows that her creative feminine energy is a catalyst. She remembers her womb wisdom and she is born again as her true Self. She knows that she is a conjurer, an alchemist, and a fierce creator. She is a woman who can rebirth herself at any time and create as she chooses. She accepts her creativeness as a gift. This is sacred self-love.
