Love Your Life: The Dropped Jewel Of The Day (9/22/17)

Buy Black Fridays“There’s a statement in the Bible which pleases me a great deal. And I try to keep it in front of me, in my mind’s front. And that is, a cheerful spirit is good medicine. It is very important for women and young men to try for cheerfulness. My encouragement is against whining. Whining is not only ugly and uncomfortable and miserable, but also alerts a brute that a victim is in the neighborhood.” -Maya Angelou

Lots of Love,

Chaka Khan On Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou“Maya Angelou’s, ‘I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. That was the first book by a Black woman I ever read, and I remember loving it. I remember it making me feel spiritually lighter and heavier all at the same time. I could definitely get with the metaphor. I didn’t process my feelings at the time, but looking back, I now know what it did for me: It held out hope while it told truth. Tough, rough, heavy times will be, but so too the overcoming. ‘Caged Bird’ would stay with me over the years and I still think it’s beautiful.” -From, “Chaka: Through The Fire” By: Chaka Khan
