What one does realize is that when you try to stand up and look the world in the face like you had a right to be here, without knowing that this is the result of it, you have attacked the entire power structure of the Western world. -James Baldwin

Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair?
Who taught you to hate the color of your skin?
To such extent you bleach, to get like the white man.
Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose and the shape of your lips?
Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet?
Who taught you to hate your own kind?
Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to so much so that you don't want to be around each other?
No... Before you come asking Mr. Muhammad does he teach hate,
you should ask yourself who taught you to hate being what God made you.
-Malcolm X

SOUND UP! Already over November. Pulling out Christmas lights. Organizing ornaments. Taking stock of how much wrapping paper I have and how much more I need. Getting ready for to make batches of my Cardamom Coquito. Thinking I’ll also need at least one case of bubbly. It’s the holidays ya’ll. Let’s get it. 🍾🥂🎄

There are so many reasons to be excited about the elections this year - but one reason that's quite personal for me is the potential for massive overhaul in marijuana legislation. 7 states have cannabis on the ballot - and that’s HUGE.
This is about more than just recreation.
This is about health.
This is about privacy.
This is about addressing massive injustices in how this country classifies crimes (and who gets deemed a criminal).

SIDE NOTE - This post features one of my new favorite tings - this discreet little cannabis purse from a brand called @erbannastyle and it’s 100% smell proof. Because I can be an advocate without wanting my whole wardrobe to smell like the good green goddess. 🌳🌳👜👜 #stashbags

I want to speak to myself with the cadence of a lover.
I want soothe myself like I would a child.
I want to inspire myself like I would a student.

I’ve always been my own worse critic. For years, I’ve associated any success I’ve had with how hard I am on myself. But with much reflection, I have come to realize that this internal dialogue is nothing short of abuse.
I wouldn’t talk to my friends this way.
I wouldn’t want my loved ones to talk to me this way.

We have to have higher (yet gentler) standards for the words we speak ourselves. You’re gonna spend a whole lifetime with yourself. So be nice. Even if it feels super weird and kind of strange, find the courage this morning, to say something warm to yourself.

Ready to roll into another week. Figuring out where I can fit in as many yoga classes as possible. Trying to write daily. Editing a new batch of poems. Playing with a new piece of prose. Freaking myself out with this sci-fi thriller. But mostly wondering why the f**k Rick is keeping Negin alive in his basement. #TWD

An unfinished poem is a beautiful thing
Like this one
Imagine the many things
This poem could mean
If only it just had
Just one more line
Just a few more words
It could be about love
or heartache
or letting go
or acceptance
So much possibility
So much potency
In just a few words
So here’s a challenge
Finish this poem
In 4 words or less
I double dog dare ya

I started writing love notes to myself a few years ago. It was actually pretty f**king painful at first. I’m pretty sure I cried the first time I said “I love you” to myself, alone, staring at my reflection in my bathroom mirror. I probably had a disapproving look on my face, which is how I tended to look at myself if I could manage to look in the mirror at all. Affirmations felt like the dumbest thing in the world when I started with them. But they work, like some real world voodoo magic sh*t. But if the thought of saying affirmations sounds like some fresh new hell, then try this: put on your favorite love song. Now sing that sh*t to yourself like you mean it. Start doing the impossibly hard work of drowning out old negative narratives any way you can. You’ve gotta replace the bad thoughts with sweet somethings. And no matter how hard it gets, just keep trying. ✨✨✨

Not everything comes with a teaspoon of sugar to make it easier to digest. People living under oppressive systemic conditions don’t even have this option. Stop looking for the easy way out. Challenge your friends, loved ones and co-workers to have hard conversations about race. It’s okay if it’s a little uncomfortable. We’re all gonna have to #DoTheWork because hope is not a strategy.

A few new pieces I’ve been working on over the last few days. I was very touched and inspired by @jusmun’s “if I should have a son” and had a few thoughts of my own that I wanted to share. @ New York, New York

The response to the coaching programs has been phenomenal. Shout outs to everyone that’s signed up for an intro call and committed to these next steps in your creative journeys. Your passion, dedication, and vision is infectious. Somewhere in the midst of our calls, super sessions, and planning meetings, I managed to churn out an outline for a TV pilot, write a pitch for a new biz venture, and even made a new piece of video art (my first in almost 8 years). I know following your heart song is scary. I struggle with it everyday. I have frequent moments where I think “hmm why I didn’t I go into investment banking.” But I’m happy, healthy, and creatively fulfilled - largely because of this amazing community. Here’s to doing what you love, and loving what you do. #noholdsbarred.

Hi, I'm Claire and I'd love to change your life. ⠀
💫⠀
I used to work a job I hated. I sacrificed my personal values, creativity, and bits of my soul for corporate success. That clash manifested itself in my life as stress, depression, and sever anxiety. ⠀
💫⠀
When I was 28 years old, I ditched my fancy corporate advertising job and launched my first six-figure business. Then, I followed my dreams and enrolled in the MFA Film program at Columbia University. Now, my outer life matches my inner values and I love every single minute of the work I do.⠀
💫⠀
I'm just a New York girl from a housing projects in Queens that somehow managed to attend an elite private boarding school, New York University, and Columbia University. I spent years hiding who I really was for the hope of "fitting in." I ditched my tongue piercing (RIP) and forced myself into a corporate mold. And in the process, I learned that "fitting in" is a quick path to creative failure. ⠀
💫⠀
If you're like me, you have big dreams and there ain't no box big enough to contain your spirit. You want to break molds and build something new.⠀
💫⠀
You're not here to play by old rules. You're here to make new ones. And I'm here to guide you, each step of the way. So what are you waiting for? Let's get to work. @ New York, New York
