The thing is: There are so many things.

“Your experiences are valid.”

Things I remind myself daily. (via shylahardwick)

To every single LatiNegrx who is told they don’t exist: whether it means people choose to not see you in the analog world, in public policies, whether it’s your family, whether it’s conversations (on or offline) that discuss Latinxs but intentionally or unintentionally attempt to erase/excludeyou - YOUR EXPERIENCES ARE SO VALID, so, so valid. You exist. We exist. All day. Everyday.

“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”

Shyla Hardwick, a contemporary artist I find to be inspirational.  My attempt at capturing her via craft acrylics on canvas board.  The image’s source material is a photograph from Shyla’s Tumblr on 1/12/2013.

I keep this painting on my bookshelf in my room, thanks again bepeaced !

Going to hear poems in North Carolina next weekend… what a perfect excuse not to attend my schools homecoming.
