  • It’s thirty years since Madonna released ‘Like A Prayer’, a provocative masterpiece that swung between love, grief, sex and religion like a thurible on a dance floor.
Featuring a duet with Prince and a Vatican-condemned lead video, the album secured Madonna’s pop icon status.
This 1990 image was taken during the supporting Blonde Ambition tour, with Madonna wearing the infamous conical corset, designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier.

  • Well, hello I am J. and I decide to create this account so I could share all the “crap” that happens to me. 
My life it’s not that bad, but I wish I could have more self esteem, so I could live my life the way I want to.

  • 3/5 Core Desired Feelings. This one is probably pretty obvious. But maybe not.

Feeling creative for me is about being curious. Fascinated. Passionate. Expressive. Carefree. I get lit up. Excited. I look at everything with wonder and awe. I want to honor what I see, honor life... by making something.

Creative is childlike. It's fulfilling. It's my purpose, my mission, my work. What I am meant to do. What I am called to do. What I have to do.

It's perhaps the expression of my soul - drawing (no pun intended) on my previous Core Desired Feeling. There's something in me that has to be made manifest. There's a whole universe to express. Sometimes I feel like I'm out of ideas, like the creative well has run dry, but if I think about it differently... maybe it doesn't even come from me. Marianne Williamson says "God is the water, you are the faucet." It's a form of healing. It's a reaching for what is just beyond me, to bring it close to me. To inspect it, admire it, add something to it, then set it free again. Release it from me. Give it back to where it came from, renewed.

Creative and inspired go together for me. They're not the same, but they're partners that perfectly complement each other. Creativity is the act, inspiration is the muse. Sometimes there is no muse, which is why that word doesn't stand alone for me. Creativity is the main source. But inspiration keeps things interesting.

Inspired: of extraordinary quality, as if arising from some external creative impulse; (of air or another substance) that is breathed in.

To breathe it in - this is the perfect metaphor.

Then I breathe it out.

  • I decided a bit ago I wanted to live a little more. Try new things. Express myself more deeply. Just do what I want to do sometimes. 
I LOVE 💕 colours 🌈!! Wearing a brightly coloured shirt, seeing a bright coloured piece of art, any pop of colour, and I’m feeling brighter myself, happier. I decided to try having some colour on my body every day, that I get to chose based on my mood!  After a few lightening sessions, I was finally able to start with some fun colours in my hair tonight. For the first, I chose #purplehair ! 
What colour should be next?!

  • Be yourself, never allow anyone to define who you are, love and treat others with kindness, take time for self care, control your mind, and understand that your past doesn’t determine your future. Live with a purpose 💪🏾 hard times make us stronger! Continue to evolve and grow ☀️🌱

  • Today is #worldpoetryday so I felt like sharing one of my favorite poems I have written this year. This poem is dedicated to a woman that recently came into my life as beautiful and fleeting as a shooting star. She not only encouraged my artistic abilities, she was the reason I discovered I could. Our souls connecting was no coincidence. 
What's great about poetry is that its magic is found when its needed. I hope this poem finds you well and stirs the right emotions you need in your life.

🌠💫🌌She Teached You, You Teached Her✨🌟👽
//
I close my eyes,
I see her as bright as night. 
Her light as beautiful and glowing as the stars,
her nature as deep and dark as space.
She was infinitely beautiful yet mysterious
a soul old and solitary as the start of creation.
Mesmerizing eyes drew me in like a black hole,
my soul falling for hers..
But as I imagined to understand her life,
she drifted away in the darkness. 
I quickly realized, I was never meant to understand. 
I was meant to fall for her,
only for us to teach each other lessons.
They say the universe is inside all of us, 
wanting to help us grow. 
I've learned it to be true. I see the universe in her.
It's also acting through her, giving my life wisdom I need to know.
