Today is one of the shorter entries. My favourite quote. I don’t have much to say about it, it’ll have to speak for itself. But it’s tricky picking a favourite out of the mass, for every quote inspires in its own different way. There could be a favourite on feminism, a favourite on love, on self-care etc.
I’ve recently become aware of a pull I have towards Nigerian women that I haven’t been able to explain. I’ve found myself moved by how they express their creativity. Whether it’s been in writing, poetry, photography, documentary or simply just how they’re genuine in how they speak and have fun. Its been effortless.
So my favourite quote comes from Nigerian poet, Ijeoma Umebinyuo.
“occupy spaces with a full heart, and make sure others like you do not find it as difficult as you found it occupying that same space”
