Holy cow, I can’t even describe how I’m feeling right now. 5 years ago, I was dirt poor both physically and emotionally. I surrendered my life to ministry and went off to college, and my life drastically changed. When I had my first hot shower in three years, I knew things were going to be different. And while I’ve recently had some bits of financial blessing, it’s the love that I have discovered from my friends and Christ that make me feel boujie.
I’m sure all of my white friends are like, “What’s boujie?” Boujie is when a person acts as if they are rich (they may or may not be, in my particular culture it means they aren’t). So, usually this has a negative connotation. Yet I feel like I’m living life as if it has value, as if I have value. I feel like I have it all (even when my bank account says otherwise). I am boujie.
For fun, I included this video to describe the word “boujie”…and an insight to my life living in St. Louis ;) (excuse the one curse word)
