"Even if you're shattered you're not worthless.
Burn yourself in a fierce blaze, recast and remold yourself, endure the torment, and rise as a glowing goddess.
You might be broken initially, but your worth is no less than that of gold" ~Sagorika Bose

Falanafoto’s taking this ‘ish to the airwaves. I’ve officially launched my Podcast, “Adulting from A Non-Early Riser.”
I get to inject some humour into a topics I enjoy speaking about outside of photography/video, but usually do not stray to far, as I always look at it through an artist lens, so to speak. I plan to have other speakers: artists, experts, spouses and maybe some randomness, for good measure!
Checking out, ” Building, Balancing, and Question”~its a segment to my creative mother entrepreneurs out there. And the chasing the holy grail known as “balance” -HA! Mythical entity, right?

"Water is an element of the Sacral Chakra, the seat of Feminine Power. It is essential to life on earth. 
It is a symbol for purification, blessing and transformation. It is primordial and life emerges from it. Water takes the path of least resistance.
Water has a powerful influence on us because we emerge from water, are made of water and cannot live without water." Fatma Zaidi

She walks in her truth, whether in darkness or in the light. Her only obstacles is that which manifest in her mind. She occupies space. She creates in space, it is her time to show resilience, be unapologetic, and forge her own path. #nubianacollective
