The Ah ha moment….

The moment when everything starts making sense. I had that moment tonight. I had a great conversation with three powerful woman and I left feeling empowered. Empowered because they felt safe enough to share their stories with me and that’s a privilege to be a part of. You cannot just make space and take this information, you have to honor it and honor them. It’s hard to explain how it feels. My hands became shaky and my breath was shallow right before I saw the light haha….
It was a combination of:

ANGER: The fact that you didn’t realize your purpose sooner really pisses you off. I mean what a time saver that would have been.
Should’ve…could’ve…would’ve!!! I’m happy now!

RELIEF: Once the anger subsides and you start breathing again–OH MAN!!! It felt so good.  Your eyes are finally wide open.  Life becomes appealing again and you can finally say you are WOKE!
Enlightenment!!! The awakening!!! “I can see clearly now the rain is gone…” (Johnny Nash) LOL

I hope this never ends, I’m committed to be a student for life and be willing to listen, empower others, and speak up. 

NO MORE…
…holding back.
…feeling like I am not enough.
…avoiding plans just to make sure I’m available.
…allowing others to define my importance.
…NO MORE being in a place the makes me feel like I’m not good enough or where I feel invisible.
TIME TO SAY…
…I’m important.
…I’m a good person and those who are worth keeping in my life will value who I am.
…it’s okay to be alone.
…it’s okay to be scared.

…it’s okay to slip up as long as you get back up and try again.
…it’s never too late to learn how to live a better life.

This page will be a safe place for anyone who visits. My goal is to capture important concepts I have learned in my journey so self-discovery and love. This process has been both taxing and liberating, painful and exhilarating. I will do my best to be authentic when I write and as vulnerable as I'm comfortable with; we have to remember that sometimes we have to take care of ourselves. It is okay to say, when something is too much to handle. I encourage any visitor I may attract to reflect on what you read through journaling or having conversations with someone you feel safe with. Feel free to send me topic suggestions and or your reponses to my posts.

  1. I agree 100%. One needs to love, appreciate and respect ourselves. If we don’t know how to do that for ourselves how can we expect others to do so.
