Inspiration For Your Ears & Soul: From John Legend to Self Care, Kindness & Love 

Singer John Legend

There is always such inspiration around us – an abundance of light and joy. We simply have to tune in and remain in a place of openness to receive it all. I am excited about the depth of music many artists are offering, along with all I read about folks around world committed to change.

Here is your mid-week inspiration round up, lovelies:

John Legend’s recent song, I Know Better  on personal growth is amazing. Love Me Now, a beautifully shot video, speaks to me so deeply about being in the present moment and appreciating love, because tomorrow is not promised.

My friend Kami’s heartfelt blog post on sharing kindness with a struggling man, and how this ultimately transformed her own perspective: “And there, in the middle of a parking lot, I placed my hand on his shoulder and prayed a short, simple prayer that he would feel loved and be provided for. I asked for him to be shown kindness in the days to come.”

Have you heard of the 5 love languages? Seems like everyone is in the know! My bestie Chel mentioned it to me years ago, and I was reminded again when checking out my girl Joi’s blog, she has a whole fab. series going, connecting it to self-care. Head on over!

I love the SideHustlePro podcast! Since listening last year, I have learned so much from Nicaila Matthews and all the fab. guests! Christina Brown of LoveBrownSugar was on recently and dropped so many jewels about turning your blog into a profitable biz! Yasss! Let’s get these coins, ladies!

Take the guesswork out of fashion with this post from Kevya Jo on the Pretty Entrepreneur blog about style staples for the entrepreneur. And then peep Vee’s post on self-love and self-care – although written for Valentine’s Day, the message is relevant year round.

Listening, even when we disagree with folks – a thoughtful read from Yes! magazine about doing just this in the era of Trump.

Black history is year round! Such an uplifting blog post on the richness of the African-American experience from my girl Monica (afrotasticlady).

Gratitude, the practice of seeing what we often overlook, is beautifully written about on Life with A View. Peep Lynda’s recent blog post and leave inspired!
