It's a Full Moon tonight, a time for manifestations and fresh inspiration. We’re all about inspiration here, and this month we decided to dig into the mind of Carolina songbird Niecy Blues for our mood board series! Check out what's been catching her eye and keeping her motivated below :)
N I E C Y:
So, the first three photos have inspired me to dig deeper inside of myself. The things that hurt me, the things that I've suppressed. I have a hard time dealing with my emotions. Instead I store them away in a mental box, and once that box begins to overflow, I fall to pieces. I chose the two photos as nude also because I'm learning to be more comfortable in my own skin. As a woman, body issues are a common insecurity. I want to learn more things about my body and appreciate every flaw that I have and be comfortable with them.
The next three are of Marina Abramovic. She has a method that allows you to exercise concentration skills. Activities such as counting grains of rice and writing your name using only tiny dot strokes. This ties into concentration on learning myself and learning to deal with my suppressed emotions. (Check her out, the level of concentration she exhibits is INSANE!)
And the last two are so bright and colorful. Beautiful black women. They inspire me to learn more about my culture as a Black woman. Also, I tend to shy away from wearing bright colors, but lately seeing so many risks taken with color has pushed me to step outside of my black and neutral color box.
