I hear a lot about affirmations these days. I see a lot of challenges on IG, FB, and of course TikTok. We talk often about self care days and being proud of who we are. And boy o boy are affirmations the hot topic. We also speak often when we have black girls about telling them they are beautiful. But my question is do we affirm the little black girls we don’t know, I mean the ones that may not get that affirmation at home. Or the ones that would love to hear a compliment from someone other than their parents (that was me). You may ask how do I go about doing that? The answer is simple and easy. We do a challenge even in the age of quarantine this is a very easy challenge! HERE IT GOES! Tell random black girls you see at the grocery store or the gas station, anywhere for that matter, these 10 words: Wow you are so beautiful and your skin is gorgeous! We will do this challenge for all of January and February and I want to get feedback on the looks on their faces, their responses, and how it made you feel. I can’t wait to hear your affirmation challenge stories. After this challenge I’m postitive we will quickly realize how important it is to normalize affirming our black children any chance we get. So LETS GET THIS CHALLENGE STARTED!!!
