A recap of 2019. I encountered spiritual confusion, mental health declination, spiritual consolation, and blessings. Gratitude to everything 2019 has thrown my way. 2020 is about to be a year of building my relationship with God, “Congratulations!”, “You’ve been chosen...”, “Welcome”, “Ms. Toni Bryant will be...”, self-love & care, blessings, positive thoughts and manifestations, new and lasting relationships.
I guess this is my truth video (if that makes sense ). I lied to everyone and said I’ve been “fine” or “living my best life”. I was depressed for about 8 months and it was absolutely the most painful thing I’ve ever been through. I distanced myself from loved ones and blamed others for my emotions. I dwelled on the past for a long time, longing for the people who’ve been escorted out of my life. I was so thankful to take part in events because it would keep my mind off of what I was feeling. My dark marks really affected me the past few months. Usually, I don’t let them define me, but I started hiding behind them. I hated them. I felt disgusted when someone looked at me and felt disgusted with myself. It’s December 6th, 2019 and I’m deciding to move on. To move on from the people who don’t love me. Move on to Godly things. Success, self-love, spiritual growth, love, self-care, joy. I’m right here. I am me. I am proud to be me. Toni Bryant, a beacon of light and hope. A True Queen.
My hair journey. Cutting my hair felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I loved my fro, but I got to a point to where I was tired from doing it and I didn’t want to have to do it EVERY night. Thankfully, my mom had done the big chop and understood what it felt like. “Every week, you’ll have a new style because it’s going to keep growing” - my mom! I love how it’s coming out and it was one step in my evolution!
Here’s to new beginnings🥰! 📸: @tony_teaser
WHY IS THIS NOT BEING TELEVISED? WE TALK ABOUT HUMAN DIGNITY AND EQUALITY, AND YET WE STILL TURN A BLIND EYE TO OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS ACROSS THE WATERS. THE RESOURCES AMERICA HAS CAN BE USED TO PUT MORE THAN AN END TO THIS GENOCIDE! SPEAK UP! IF THEY’RE OWN GOVERNMENT WON’T HELP THEM, IT’S OUR DUTY AS THE REST OF THE WORLD TO RESCUE AND PROTECT THEM! #sudan
Homelessness/poverty is one of the the world’d leading problem. WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO THOSE AROUND US. As people, we were created to be in communion and unity with one another. Who are we to judge someone because they fell on hard times? Because they’re not on our economic income level? IT’S ABOUT LOVE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOTHING. Be that person who sparks a change within your community and SPREAD LOVE TO CAST OUT THE EVILS! We are all human and we will fall on hard times, so it’s our job to help others along the way because God made us to bring communion with each other.
It’s been a long & eye-opening year! They’ve become my family, and I continue to learn from them! Continue to be the great people that you are and let God’s light shine through you! I love you & peace until next time🧡! #class5
I feel like I haven’t been sharing what I’ve been going through for the past couple of weeks. I’ve been so caught up in what’s going on around me & making myself feel less than. I haven’t been thanking God for my blessings. I’ve been lacking in faith & been going crazy. The whole time I wasn’t looking at the blessings I had right in front of my face. I was trying to “get back to myself”. Trying to find my spark again. God is my spark. I am nothing without Him and it’s beautiful knowing that I don’t have to be perfect, because the only perfect person in Jesus. I have to be vulnerable in certain situations, I have to be loving, I have to be kind, and I have to be myself most importantly. I deserve the love I give out!
Happy International Women’s Day to my fellow queens. You need no man to tell you how beautiful you are. Tell it to yourself on a daily. You radiate beauty inside & out👸🏾! 📸: @fengmedia
