"...in Dagara life, the first few years of a child's life is spent with the grandparents, not the parents. What the grandparents and grandchildren share togethe...r ... that the parents do not ... is their close proximity to the cosmos. Grandparents will soon return to where the grandchildren came from, so therefore the grandchild is the bearer of news the grandparents need. The grandparents must get this information before the child forgets."

"You gotta fight for what you want, and don't let them tell you that you can't. To see you fall is what they want, but don't you be a fish to the fisherman!" -Raging Fyah
Keep fighting for your dreams. Don't worry about how many times you fall, but focus on how you will get back up each time. People may talk about you and your views of your life purposes, but they are not in charge of your destiny, so let them do what they do as a doubter. It is up to you to walk and be about your purpose daily; no matter what! Your purpose in life is not so much about achieving the goal, as it is about having the fervor, gratitude, and anticipation to live with purpose every minute of your time here on earth! That in itself is living with purpose! #livingmaat #lifeonpurpose
Every mother has her own TRUTH..her own journey, and her own story. We as mothers, during birth, and after, have to continue to plan for the best and remember to also plan for the unexpected. We have to remember that sometimes it is the unexpected that gives you even more strength in life than the expected!
No More WEAK Days!
It's Sunday, which means tomorrow is Monday (your'e welcome for that brief days of the week review). The weekend ends, and the week begins, however, change the ...words and and no longer accept 5 days as "WEAK" and only 2 as when the "WEAK" ENDS. Live all 7 of your days with strength...not weakness. Change your mind as to how you view a Monday, and keep that "Weak End" mindset Monday through Friday! #theytcontroluswiththewords #nomoreWEAKdays #livestrongdays #ijs #wordsmatter

Never forget your beauty, and most importantly, never forget to tell the young girls that you encounter that they are NATURALLY beautiful! It's our duty as Nubian women to build confidence not only within ourselves, but within our community! The more beautiful our girls and women feel, the more beautiful our communities will become! As the song says "Only She can Choose To See", but it is our responsibility as Nubian women to choose to reflect our natural beauty while in her presence, because she just may not know her beauty! #poeticlyrics #iyeoka #musicwithpurpose
