A New Story

1 month ago, for day 80 by Asia 💎

Hey, girl. You can be beautiful, smart, or athletic. Pick one, but know that there are caveats. If you pick smart, you will spend your life proving it, and you will attract few partners. If you pick beautiful, you will spend your life prolonging it, and defending your humanity. If...


Altitude Training

2 months ago, for day 79 by Asia 💎

I don't think I ever learned to breathe properly. Born black, female, and poor, just taking my first breaths of life were a kind of altitude training. After all, I almost didn't make it to the hospital. As much as I might like to think of it as a metaphor,...


A Game of Noms

Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons. Like so...


Retrograde

2 months ago, for day 77 by Asia 💎

Sometimes life moves so fast, it seems to move almost backwards. I know for certain that it does not, and cannot, but it can feel like I'm losing control, becoming a new person who's making the same old mistakes. It's how I know I am slipping too much into the...


Solitude

2 months ago, for day 76 by Asia 💎

With our names so closely bonded to our things, our clothes, and all the stuff outside us and outside our control, we start to approximate the self with the outside, and we lose contact with the inside world in favor of all the baggage we've collected on our journey from...


The Thief of Joy

2 months ago, for day 75 by Asia 💎

They say comparison is the thief of joy. I've seen this time and time again in my own life. It's hard to live in the moment, with yourself, when your gaze is turned outward. How can you remember to check in with yourself when you're so checked in with others...


Another Taste

2 months ago, for day 73 by Asia 💎

As she drank, gently nuzzling at his neck at first, he felt a familiar comfort, of being neither here nor there, some place between life and death. He likened it to being in the womb, inextricably linked to another being but utterly unaware of being a separate entity. It was...


Trust

2 months ago, for day 72 by Asia 💎

I believe trust is the most foundational part of every single relationship, including the one we have with ourselves. We are born with an innate trust of virtually everything and everyone around us. We then learn discernment through indoctrination and experience. Sometimes this discernment is established consciously, while other times...


Productivity

2 months ago, for day 71 by Asia 💎

Today I felt like I got a lot of work done and experienced what I felt was peak productivity. Throughout the day, I acknowledged some key insights to help me approach my peak more frequently. Get Some Rest, But Not Too Much It goes without saying, but sleep is critical....


The Birds & the Bees

2 months ago, for day 70 by Asia 💎

Author's Note: This post talks about sex. I talk about sexual assault, but there are no graphic recollections, only ruminations about stories from my parents. Reader discretion is advised. I missed a prime opportunity to write about sex yesterday. It was the 69th day of the year. (Nice.) ![Jordan...
