I’m the definition of an introvert; most comfortable in the corner of a room sipping a glass of Prosecco than in the middle of the dance floor, most suited to deep and meaningful one on one conversations than public speaking, and most used to being part of close, tight friendship circles than part of a larger gang.
2. Eat lunch that looks better than theirs and post it on Instagram with lots of heart eye emojis
3. Put your needs before theirs
4. Pay off your student loan
5. Think you’re the perfect weight
As you open up Instagram you could be met with anything from a selfie, a meme or something a little less savoury.
If you want to add some spirituality to your feed, here are nine accounts to follow that will help keep your mind on the things above.
1. Look good 24/7
2. Wear heels because everyone else is wearing heels
3. Answer every text and call that you receive
4. Follow the career path your parents want you to
5. Answer emails immediately
How much attention do you pay to your whatsapp group chats?
Every now and again, among the memes and screenshots, something powerful is shared (depending on who your friends are…)
In the video Blakes explains that he believes it is his calling to restore the queens back to their thrones, and so he developed this teaching, and recorded two separate periscope sessions on the subject which he later uploaded to YouTube.
First, here’s the definition of a powerful woman:
Let’s get this straight once and for all.
Can we leave this word behind now? It’s irritating, and so are all the connotations that come with it. I sometimes reply back late to texts because I’m busy, not because of my skin colour.
I “think I’m too nice” because the bible says I was fearfully and wonderfully made, not because of my skin colour.
Sometimes I don’t return people’s calls because I have nothing nice to say to them, not because of my skin colour.
1. Eating gyoza (or pretty much anything) from Wagamama
2. Pineapples (but not pineapple juice)
3. Reading the news and throwing shade on Asia V (pictured above)’s show on Wandsworth radio on a Saturday
4. Missguided jumpsuits
5. When people actually end up being fine after losing someone they thought they couldn’t live without
6. Psalms 112:7
Looking for a new book to get stuck into this week? You might want to try something you won’t find in your local bookstore, the first novel from YouTuber Sincerely Oghosa — it’s like nothing you’ve ever read before.
Sent From Heaven follows a woman called Chioma Da Silva, who died several years ago, leaving her fatherless son behind. With the help of God and some angels a few days before Christmas, she gets the chance to come back to earth to try to give her son a happy ending before it’s too late.
For those of you who don’t know her, Heather Lindsey is a Christian author and speaker whose posts on twitter and instagram I love!
She always speaks so much truth and isn’t afraid of tackling the big topics. I’ll be doing a review of her book Dusty Crowns soon, but for now here are 7 life lessons I’ve learned from her…
This month I’ve been reading Genesis as part of my private bible study and have learned so much from the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Jacob and Esau and Joseph and his brothers.
I’ve been using the Lion Guide to the Bible by Peter Walker as a kind of textbook (definitely more fun than my media law one!) to guide me in my studies and it’s really put a lot of things into perspective.
