Ladies Who Brunch

What visions do you have for yourself and your life in 2018? In this soulful session, you will open yourself up to the things you want for yourself in the year ahead. Over brunch, we will share open, supportive and encouraging discussions with a small group of women who are committed to seeing their visions manifested. In this brunch session, I will be joined by Tash Mitch, coach, healer, and intuitive, and Carol Mitchell, life coach, community advocate and the founder of GARP. I will be speaking, what the term truly means, and it’s importance to the woman with a mission. It’s gonna be real, honest, and candid. Tash will be speaking on visions and manifestations and Carol will delve into her rich arsenal of wisdom to inspire and help get us approaching our visions from the right place. Registration, pricing, and venue details can be found on the flyer below.  …

All ends lead the new beginnings

In a few hours, it will be 2018. As I reflect on this past year, I am thankful for the blessings, the lessons, the challenges, the highs, lows and the grace to endure. In many ways, this was my best year and I am excited about the personal and professional direction I am stepping into in 2018. On the 15th December, FemmePowered turned three. I didn’t share anything on the blog or social media as I have done in previous years because the mood that came and went with the day was introspective. And I was not reflecting on my journey as a broken and battered woman blogging to make sense of the pain and shame associated with her broken body and heart, thanks to an abusive marriage. Instead, I was reflecting on how much meaning FemmePowered has made for individuals and the community, and I was thinking of ways…

Wholeness is yours for the taking.

You walk around with brokenness, believing that healing is beyond you. You use brokenness as a crutch, sometimes even a badge of honor, never daring the see what a whole life could look like. Fear, shame, self-doubt, and issues of unworthiness abound within. Yeah, I see, you sister girl, I see you. I see you and I know, because those who’ve been there identify with it in others. I have my insecurities. I’m sure you do, too. But I am determined in letting my truth speak louder than any broken image I may have of myself, and I am careful to not allow the world to inform the reality of who I am to me. I am thankful for the handful of women I know have my heart and I can call friends because they affirm me and encourage me when my crazy starts to show and the outer critic starts…

Wintering Season

I’m a doer. I’m always busy, always planning, always on the go. Slow does not come naturally. My mind will not allow it, but I am learning to move at an unhurried pace. Even with my writing and blogging and the pace, I put on events. For a while, I have been quiet here, and it’s because I felt like it was necessary to be quiet. The words did not come easily, and the inspiration to share valuable material just wasn’t there. I understood that this was my wintering season – a period where I will rest from this space. You can’t give from a place of emptiness. You need respite, self-care inspiration, wisdom and more to make an impact, especially with words. So I wintered because I recognized I need to do so if I was to continue making this space worthy of my time and your attention. At times…

Grace and Cocktails

There is an incredible urge to me to write this morning. I have felt this way for some time, but I have been hiding from the words.  Sad. You see, I have always connected with myself at the end of my pen. Something on a deeper level will surface, grab me and pull me in when I find the courage to put pen on papers and explore my inner workings and many layers. My words are powerful on many levels – they bring healing, clarity, peace, perspective, and help me extend grace to myself and others as well. Grace. Hmm. Oh, sweet grace. This word fills me up and etches on to the broken spaces within me like no other. It allows me to make meaning of my experiences and what lays before me. It allows me the opportunity to extend grace to myself and give others the grace to be…
