These particular lessons center around “Trusting the Process” and all that entails. In my first lesson, we discussed finding beauty in your struggle. Today, I’m going to dig into the next lesson:

Trust the Process: Beauty in the Struggle

Last week, I told you guys I was getting a little personal with my next few blogs. I’m not going to burst into tears or anything ( if I do, at least you can’t see it) so don’t fret. But I do feel like this “Trusting the Process” thing can make a playa emotional. So many of us claim to live by this motto. However, when we think about it, this saying comes with different sets of lessons that most of us don’t truly grasp until we actually HAVE to implement the statement in our daily lives. This DPTaughtMe series explores those lessons. And here is lesson number one:

Trust the Process: The Intro

Remember when you first thought about joining your organization? You attended the events, rubbed elbows with the members, researched history, expressed interest and waited ever so quietly until an official invitation shook your world up. You had dreamed of becoming a Frat or Soror and now it was finally your chance to show and prove. From that moment, you imagined what your line jacket would look like, who would be at your probate, how loud you would be during role call and when you’d run out to be Super Neo once your org’s song came on at any given black function.

Ways to Revamp and Regift Greek Paraphernalia: Sorors

Greek gifting season is upon us people! Probates, graduations, holidays and birthdays. Tis the season to give, give and give otra vez! Whether we’re purchasing something for ourselves, our Spesh, Sandz, Number, Neo, Legacy, or whoever,  you name it, we’re going all out on the cool Nalia! Because that’s what we’re supposed to do. Afterall, we all have a bajillion shirts with our organization’s letters and/or sayings on them. Somewhere in our apartment, we can find at least 3 variations of wooden paddles, picture frames, shadow boxes or whatever else can be made with wood and paint. It’s TRA-DISH-E-ON!

HOOOOOOWWEEVA! Sometimes we just don’t know what to do with with all of our divine digs. Especially our tshirts.  Seriously, what are we supposed to do with half a million tshirts from picnics, neo years, homecomings, etc? When we can’t answer that question, we end up with this foolishness:
