Who am I? “Complex, unique and multifaceted. A soul made up of things too complex to categorized into a single box.”- Maquita Donyel

Whether you’re holding on to clothes in your closet in fear of never finding that same sweater again, baby clothes waiting for your next baby (even though its been 5 years), grudges/unforgiveness, or a box full of letters and gifts from ex loves over the years. Sometimes holding on to what’s comfortable and what we THINK we want, keeps us away from blessings we didn’t even know we needed. How can we be blessed with something new when our hand is already overflowing? How can we expect a new car when there is still an old one sitting on blocks in the driveway? Forbidden Topic Wednesday: Letting go of the old, making room for the new Will be posted tonight! Happy Wednesday you wonderful Pistils you! Live freely. Run Wild. Stay Classy. Stay Polished Pistil.
When you’re not fond of the situation you’re in, it may be time for some serious self reflecting. Become the person you want to marry. Become the person you want to be best friends with. Become the person of your dreams. Instead of bashing the people of your past, see what you can do, to yourself, to ensure the same actions are not made in the future. It’s all love Be wise. Stay good. Run Wild. Stay Polished Pistil. Happy Friday-Eve beauties!! SN: Totally took “Friday-Eve” from my mom years ago.
Last week I showed you MOST of the responses from 25 anonymous women on things their mother’s have taught them about being a lady of class. (Most, because some of your mama are too sassy for Polished Pistil! 😀 ) You can read Things Your Mama Taught You- Women Edition: HERE Today, I will share with you the anonymous responses from a few men on things their mother’s taught them on being a man, respecting a woman, and on love. These are some pretty dope men with very smart mamas. Enjoy! <3 Women: Do: Listen to women, their intuition is more keen than a man’s. (my favorite for obvious reasons) Do: Hold the door open for every woman and child Do: Be protective and respect women Be open and understand [that] women are not as simple as us [and it] complements us perfectly. Do: Understand that you dress…
Nina Davuluri, age 24, is the First Miss America of Indian descent! “I’m so happy this organization has embraced diversity,” she said in her first press conference after winning the crown in Atlantic City, New Jersey’s Boardwalk Hall. “I’m thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America.” Nina is from New York and plans on attending medical school and becoming a doctor. However her first official act will be to visit Seaside Heights, NJ- the location damaged by Hurricane Sandy and then by a fire last week. Can’t wait to see all of the things she does this year and what is to come next year after yet another milestone has been broken in this country. Check out the priceless reaction photos below from the pageant. Congratulations Nina!!! Stay Polished Pistil
Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” One day, I decided to just stop merely praying for what I wanted, I decided to start thanking God in advance for answering my prayers. In my prayer I was very specific about what he had given me and when he had given it to me. I thanked Him for blessing me within a specific week. In that specific week, exactly what I had been praying for, but more, had been delivered to me. It wasn’t until that very moment that I realized how powerful my tongue was. As you start your Monday, just try speaking positively about yourself and others and see how it transforms your day. See how much it will transform your week…
