My long locks have been both my security and insecurity. Ever since I chopped off my mame. I’ve been deeply reconnected to my inner child. I feel this innocence take over me, I catch myself skipping along the street and waving at strangers with a huge smile on my face.
Life has forced me to grow up fast. It’s been so special for me to be able to feel the emotions I fondly hold on to in this picture as a child. With unwavering determination, I kept that little girl within me safe from all the cruelty & harshness this solo pilgrimage has made me endure. I have been working relentlessly ever since I can remember to get to where I am at now. A place of constant transformations & tranquility. I have created a life for myself where I finally feel safe enough to let that little girl in me shine through without any apology…I am so utterly grateful…for everything and everyone. I am a free bird!
The inner child within me, bows to the inner child within you, my loves.
Thank you for being here with me. Stay bold & beautiful.

“I encourage you to expand your feminism to include the voices of radical sex positivists and anarchist sex workers. What you are missing is the power of weaponized femininity, it’s real and it’s one of the most powerful and underused tools we have to dismantle the heteropatriarchy. Oanh is a hell of a lot smarter then you are giving her credit for here.” – Tallulah Lee
I could not have said it better myself beautiful sister, thank you for helping me shed light where it is dark & having my back.
I know very well, that the only way for an everyday woman such as myself…to stand out from the crowd and be heard. I MUST FEARLESSLY, walk even further away from the crowd! I stand my grounds…
I made this meme with the utmost respect to our dearest Mother Teresa. Her work must carry on through OUR collective WILL to live in harmony.
I have nothing left to lose…

Dear Tribe Leader’s a.k.a community leaders
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead
Tribe leaders, I need you men to start asking “WTF questions!!!” Like, “WHY, Why am I now, being so fucking relentless with my ways!?!” Wonder who Nguyen Thi The Oanh, truly is, what kind of a person I am”, “How have I been living my life?”, “To what purpose have I willingly surrendered my all & sacrificed everything I’ve ever wanted in life thus far?” “Why have I so BOLDLY put my neck out there?!” “What do you men have in common and why have I meticulously picked each of you out?” Nothing is by chance when it comes to the ways of the Universe. Ask these questions out loud, consult your greatest confidant. Pick up the phone, and call each other! You must feel the same urgency I feel…We cannot move mountains over night nor can we do it alone…but it is imperative we start an unbreakable alliance! The stars have aligned…we have until August 12th to utilize our intentions to create positive change for our future. Be in prayer with me, pray for humanity!
We are protected.

As the people begin to emerge from the darkness….the ground beneath our feet will tremble! We must ground ourselves, this movement is very real!
2:55pm August 7th 2016,
Once upon a time, I dreaded the thought of looking in the mirror. Self love was something I knew nothing of. But I have healed and will continue to heal. I am ready to speak my truth. In a big way. FRIENDS!!! I am conducting a social media experiment. The question is…How many memes will it take before they become viral so I can reach JOE ROGAN himself and have a NO BULLSHIT conversation with the man on his podcast!!! If your curious as to what on Earth I wanna to talk to him about…then maybe YOU should help me make my memes reach him!
I know in order for an everyday woman such as myself, in the THICK of my journey, to gain the attention of the leaders in my community, I’ma have to kick, scream, TAG YOU on my memes and be that sliver under your skin until you do something about it. If I’m gonna be utterly uncomfortable in this whole process, I’m gonna do everything in my power to make you uncomfortable too, with love of course =) Sorry, not sorry! This is how we grow together…
Thank you kindly and have a kick ass day.
Let the hunt begin!
Oanh Love baby!
To all those who don’t have nice things to say, if you don’t like what I stand for now, your probably not gonna like me tomorrow or the day after. So please do us both a favor, save your energy and delete me from your life and enjoy it to the fullest!
If you think I have an ego, your right. We all do. But if you think I’m really that self centered or egotistical, your wrong. Because IF I really was, I would wish to be united and deeply in love with my eternal king, move into the woods or by a beach and raise my family/animals. The truth is…I am still so madly in love with humanity and I have a message to share…it will not be easy to spread the word but I didn’t get to where I am today without resilience or perseverance.
I hope you gain empowerment from this years first INSPIRATIONAL POST of 2016! You will also gain insight on what I plan to do and why.
Love me or hate me…I am here to represent the people!
NO MORE SEGREGATION, WE MUST UNITE AS ONE NATION!
Oanh Love baby!

Now that I’ve had a few days to let my experience in Vietnam really soak in. I can come out to honestly say that I am a new woman, with the same heart and a cleansed spirit. It was as though the Universe conspired in any way possible to get me to Vietnam, no matter how hard it was gonna be, so that I can complete my healing process that I devoted this year to…And I am grateful to have made it to my destiny because it made the reunion with my father possible. 22 years had passed without me really knowing if he was dead or alive, if he was well or why he never tried to reach out to me. I got answers to my questions but most of all I got to feel his love for me and remorse for leaving our family the way he did. I know how far I’ve come based on my ability to forgive those who hurt me most because I now want to have a stronger relationship with my mother & brothers. I get to be a daughter for a father again. Who would have known how much I love the feeling of having my hand held by my daddy. Although, even in all this happiness lies sorrow for the loss of a relationship with my beloved younger brother that I worked so hard to nurture. Acceptance has become my saving grace and greatest lesson. There once was a time when everyone who was suppose to love me, got up and left me. I felt what it feels like to be completely abandoned but now that I’ve come to this abundance in my life that I fought so hard for, it has brought me peace, unconditional love and forgiveness for myself and others. No one can take this serenity from me…not ever. So for those who meet me and wonder how I can be so damn positive and full of love. It`s because I’ve emancipated from the pits of my hell, which is much like yours. I never really knew what it meant to be reborn until it truly happened to me, in my home town in Vietnam where I was conceived. Love is all that I wish to feel and so love is all that I will exude. I share my story in hopes to inspire anyone who is facing adversity to remember that LOVE WILL DELIVER YOU PEACE! As it has for me….Thank you for reading and for being here with me, remember you are not alone.

I am amazed by how far I’ve come just in the last few months. It felt like a lifetime has come and gone in only days. The emotions I feel inside is indescribable. I sit here now with so much love in my heart and I just have to say that I LOVE TO LOVE…even when I’m upset, clouded or angry, I always come back to LOVE.
For so many years of my life I’ve held back due to distrust, resentment, fear and well being stubbornly independent. I didn’t need anyone nor I did I want anyone. I wallowed in my own misery because I wanted to absorb what I was feeling, have it engrained in my mind and forever seared onto my aching heart. I did this so I would remember to never be in this dark place ever again. This mentality created a rather rough exterior to those who didn’t know me but I had this face on because I had so much to protect, my life depended on the fact that I had to be tough. This also meant I could not completely give my heart to anyone to prevent from ever being heart broken.
Well, times have changed, I’ve come full circle! I’ve walked through that glorious gate and I’m not looking back. I`m finding myself in the most peaceful place of my life, in my souls whole existence. I had been telling myself that my peace will come when I can gaze into my child’s eyes, so to feel this serenity NOW is very special to me. And to know that this feeling will only be intensified once I have healed entirely to seal the link, is what’s all the more wondrous for me. I have learned that true happiness comes from being honestly content with oneself. A new and exciting adventure begins, I am single, abstinent and remarkably happy!!! I’ve accomplished SO much since putting ME first that I owe it to myself to ride this wave out. The impact of my achievements will be felt by those I care about deeply and even those I may not know. This immense abundance I have in my world is overwhelming. A huge chunk of this is due to the precious relationships I have with whom I love in my life. I constantly count my blessings, THANK YOU for being one of my many gifts.
While up high in the sky, flying home from Celaya, Mexico in 2010. I was enthralled by the horizon as I looked out the airplane window. Words began to flow together to form a poem I hold dear to my heart. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did writing it, this poem never gets old for me.
