Just Because Someone is Grown, Doesn't Mean They're Growing
Just Because Someone is Grown, Doesn't Mean They're Growing. One more time. Just Because Someone is Grown, Doesn't Mean They're Growing.  That is the challenge Felicia has found herself in with her mother, and Karega has found himself in with a loved one. In reality, we all have found ourselves presented with the challenge of loving someone who isn't necessarily on the same trajectory of growth, wellness, or knowing as you. It is in this moment of investigation that we all join Karega & Felicia as we work through just how to hold and make space for those who challenge our growth.Felicia's book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!

Reframing Comparision

Reframing Comparision
Sometimes you need to reframe the reframe, and that lesson comes bright and early on a Monday. For Felicia it came in the form of comparison. We all have those moments when we wonder why we aren't where that other person is, EVEN if it's someone we love dearly. It is when we sit in those feelings and those thoughts that we are given the opportunity to process and move forward in them and find who we are. Is it just comparison? Is it a different form a grief? Is it all of the above and more?Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Keep up  with Karega and Felicia on Instagram: @karegabailey & @fefemonique========Join us for the 2023 Black Love Summit!

The Conflicts and Challenges That Arise Out of Stubbornness
In potty training Kamali, Felicia and Karega find new knowings in the concept of "being stubborn" and how one learns. How often do we, as a society, dismiss stubborn children or stubborn people as not knowing or not learning just because they are not doing things with the ease or expectation that we would like them to?Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Keep up  with Karega and Felicia on Instagram: @karegabailey & @fefemonique========Join us for the 2023 Black Love Summit!

Grieving on the Corner of Hope and Hopelessness

Grieving on the Corner of Hope and Hopelessness
How does one process the loss of someone who still had so much more to tell? Of a loss that feels too soon? Karega asks this as he processes the loss of one of his former students from DC, Troy, to gun violence. Troy, like so many of Karega's students, taught Karega just as much as he taught them. There was so much more to them than people were willing to see or understand, but Troy was able to communicate it all through poetry. Poetry that sits with and influences Karega to this day unfortunately now, through his absence. Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Keep up  with Karega and Felicia on Instagram: @karegabailey & @fefemonique========Join us for the 2023 Black Love Summit!

The Love Calls for us to Unify
As Felicia reflects on her now 36th birthday, she recalls what the past few birthdays have looked like even as she has shared this space with you all. The changes that are naturally occurring in life have made their way and even the moments of celebration look different. While discussing that moment, allows to Karega reflect on a trip back east that he took with his father just before his dad's 70th birthday.

An old school Gospel playlist (not super old-school, we're talking early 2000s) has Felicia and Karega honing in on the many facets of gratitude.

The Spectrum of Celebration

The Spectrum of Celebration
Celebration in grief looks different. Celebration after grief looks different. Celebration after milestones looks different. What it all shows us is that there is no one way to celebrate, and that our differences are not deficits. As Felicia recounts how a birthday celebration with her long time friend looks different know than it did when they first started celebrating birthdays over a decade ago, it allows space for all of us to take a moment and reflect on not only the necessity of joy, but the specialness of Black sisterhood.Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Felicia's new book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!

Today I Choose to Practice Love
Practicing Love. Sit with that statement for a second. How often do we treat love as a practice or a philosophy? Do we realize that love, as with all things, changes and grows? That it requires us to study, and practice it? That it will test us? Push us? Today Karega and Felicia discuss moments that have challenged their practice of love, BUT have also allowed for a sort of mastery of certain facets of it. Even as it changes and grows, continuing to PRACTICE LOVE allows us to grow in love.Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Felicia's new book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!

The Ongoing Process of Healing
"Everything I am feeling in my grief is normal. Acknowledging these emotions is the ongoing process of healing."Today Felicia and Karega share about another loss and how they are feeling as they navigate this new grief. What lessons have they learned not only from Kamaiu, but from other losses that allow them to keep growing, to keep moving, and to keep walking in faith? How does comparison weigh so heavy while looking at one's own journey? There are no set answers. We ask you to join us in reflection as we all try to better understand the process behind the creation of the conditions  to acknowledge our grief. Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Felicia's new book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!

I Speak to Resolve What's Conflicting Inside
Felicia did not make it to the gym today. She was dressed for the gym. She had planned on going to the gym, was ready will and able, but it didn't happen. She did, however, make it to the store. It was while she at the store she had a chance run in with a man who she had never met. It was through conversation with him, that she found out that they shared something in common: the loss of a daughter. Through this conversation, Felicia realizes how much healing comes from speaking about Kamaiu, and Karega helps frame the experience through his experiences of loss and healing. Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Felicia's new book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!

A Reflection of Where I Come From
Oftentimes, we find ourselves trying to piece together the pieces of ourselves. These pieces become more apparent when we see them reflected back at us through our children. Today, Felicia has her Mommy sitting in with her in reflection of not only her journey as a mother, but in parenting. How do all these pieces fall together, and what does the journey look like from the perspective of the person who gave you life?

The Gift of Impermanence

The Gift of Impermanence
We all know that nothing lasts forever but, for a 2 year old like Kamali, you have nothing but time. Today Karega and Felicia discuss their recent trip with Kamali to Atlanta to visit close friends. While traveling, Karega experienced a series of moments  with Kamali that caused him to reflect on  the fact that even though Kamaili is only two, there are things, as she gets older and matures, that she won't ask him or Felicia to do any more. The great thing about Kamali, even though she is growing everyday, she always finds ways to bring Karega and Felicia in the present to remind them that while time doesn't stop, being present in the moment allows them to appreciate those times before they are gone.  Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Felicia's new book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!

The Mindset We Have in Our Growth

The Mindset We Have in Our Growth
The heavy rainy season has Karega thinking about seasons, restarts, harvests and what growth should look like. To go even deeper, what he thought his growth should look like after everything he went through. Seeds and fruit and even the trees have shown him that growth does not look the same and neither does our growth. Especially our growth through grief. Having patience for ourselves is key as we do not all grow the same way. ========Karega's New Album Legacy Lounge Season 1 "Legacy Talk Only"  is AVAILABLE NOW through EVEN. Felicia's new book SOL Affirmations: A Toolkit for Mothers Who Are Investigating Grief's Process is available now!
