Hey boo hey! I often pray before I post anything just to have clarity and ensure that my heart is clean. There are several interviews that I cannot post due to my integrity, some things just aren’t acceptable. Safety concerns and time are valuable to me and going forward I won’t allow anyone to waste either of them. The one thing none of us can recover is our time, so going forward I will ensure that mine is spent with others who value theirs, as much as mine.
Some of you have noticed that I’ve been going in a different direction with this blog. I had an “aha” moment and a few disappointments recently that forced me out of my comfort zone. On June 24, 2017, I was honored to attend the Beyond Your Pain … Lies Your Calling conference hosted by Lori Wilcox and De Vonna Pittman. The event was awesome and changed my life!
The conference filled with women of different ages and different life walks was a beautiful site. It was engaging as well as empowering. I walked away excited about who I am, who I want to be and the direction of my own walk. Most importantly I realized that when women come together, something powerful happens and we can accomplish anything we desire.
My “aha” moment came and after speaking with my good girlfriends and mentor, “I was asked what’s in this for you?” My response, “I get to help and inform others.” Later I realized that yes, I get to do those things, but ultimately I’m hiding behind everyone else. Subconsciously, afraid of fully letting go and putting myself totally out there. I’m often asked, “how do you as a single mom keep it together?” So going forward and after much research I will speak on issues that we as women face. I will continue to attend, support and share photos of events and businesses that I visit, but I am championing for girls and women. Since this Blac Chyna and Rob debacle if I see one more girl post or hashtag “#hoeislife” I am going to scream! *eyerolls on repeat* I’ll be posting about that later.
On January 1, 2017 I said to myself I’m coming for everything my Heavenly Father said I can have. I am a woman of my word and I can honestly say I’ve been living beneath what he has in store for me. Change is scary, but often times very necessary. Your girl is working on some things behind the scenes and they’re kind of a big deal. Empowering, envisioning and engaging other women is my passion. So just wait, 2017 hasn’t seen anything yet!
