A Genuine Invitation

We all know a few people that may not have the best relationships with their family members—and those that may not have the luxury of being able to see their family.

Check on those people today. Invite those friends to the house or at least to pick up a plate. (Or drop it off, if that person is your elder.)

We were not created to be islands. If you’re truly thankful, it won’t hurt or cost you anything this holiday to reach out to them.

Other than that, I hope we all eat ‘til our hearts are content. I hope everyone gets to be around people who care about us. Happy Thanksgiving!

—Sincerely, Tyra

A Win for the Neighborhood

Spent some time with these sisters last night supporting an old friend with a new plan! Not only is she a NATIONALLY-known community organizer, but Jeanette Taylor @jbt_40, is a candidate that we can believe in. Her election as Alderman of the 20th Ward would definitely be “A Win for the Neighborhood!” Can’t wait to see how this first step completely transforms our community.

Hair Wars and Self-Care

Spoiler Alert: This is a “Hair Appreciation” post.

Yall. I used to be the queen of bone straight hair which over time ended up damaging it. Literally took me 10 years to become comforatble with my natural curl pattern. Would have never worn my hair like this even two or three years ago. My hair and I have come so far. 😄

Sincerely,

Tyra

A Few Coins | Thoughts 

Today:

Don’t get comfortable. Don’t get complacent. Challenging yourself begets innovation. If you’re not doing that, you’re not growing. And anything not growing is dead. #SlayTheDream 

Yesterday: 

1. Love is the most simple concept and feeling that we tend to complicate.

2. I just want it to be memorable.

3. Remember to devote time to your passion today. Whatever makes you smile from your inner-self, practice on that. #SincerelyTyra #SlayTheDream
