Walking In My Power! Part 2


Dear Readers,

My apologies! Yesterday I wrote a post entitled, Walking in Your Power! I thought I explained what walking in your power is, but apparently I did not. Well, for those of you who don’t have me on Facebook, it must have seemed that it came out of the blue. So, although this post should have been part 1 of Walking in Your Power, it is Part 2.

Here is my Facebook post explaining what walking in your power is:

I have one question for you, Are you walking in your power?!?!
I ask this because there was a time when I thought I was broken and would never be fixed. I thought that no one could possibly really love this broken, disheveled mess that I called ME! I was so wrong. I love ME; this formerly broken mess of a woman who learned who I am, who doesn’t accept SH*T from anyone, who realizes her worth, who walks in her own power!
I am finally beginning to walk in my power. I was up, around 4 a.m., watching various motivational videos and reading anything I could find about walking in my power. One of the simplest ones I read was on Huffington Post entitled, “Why Aren’t You Walking in Your Power?”
It wasn’t a long article. It was very simple and to the point. I recommend it.

Check it out @ https://www.huffingtonpost.com/…/mindfulness-practice_b_420…

You’ll see from reading the Huffington Post article that walking in your power is you being your best self, it’s owning your truth, it’s realizing your true purpose and who you really are! 

In the words of Vicki Kirk-May, “It’s time to dominate!” It’s time to SHINE!!!

It’s time to become the real ME. I feel like I’ve only been a facsimile of who I can and am supposed to be. This quote, down below, by Anaïs Nin, perfectly symbolizes my situation. I can no longer remain tight in a bud. It’s too painful. I’m ready to be and embrace the new me; the ME that is my best self; the one who owns my truth- ALL OF IT. I accept all of me, the good and the bad. I accept and own everything I’ve done, up until now.

IT’S TIME TO REALLY LIVE!

 

As always, I’ll keep you updated on the happenings in my life!

Walking in My Power!


Dear Readers,

cropped-self-improvement-project.jpg

Here’s my post from Facebook, April 14, 2011:

This year I have learned to Accept, Embrace, & Stand. I’ve learned to accept what I cannot change; embrace the lessons I need to learn, embrace the pain, embrace what is and what is to come; stand on the promises of God, stand on my own two feet (which I didn’t know I could do), stand when I thought I would fall, just stand!

As I wrote on another post (click here), I’ve discovered that I go through the same thing around the same time of year. So, I’ve decided to read back on this blog and my Facebook page so that I can kinda’ predict what’s about to happen. It’s not foolproof, but it’s all I got right now.

As I read my Facebook memory, I began thinking about my current situation. I didn’t realize that my awakening began about 7 years ago. Currently, I’m experiencing what I wrote about in my Facebook memory to the 10th power. At that time, I had no name for what I was experiencing. I just knew that I was not doing all that I’m called to do and that I was not being my best self.

Everything began with the above quote from Marianne Williamson- “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

Can I just tell you that I am vibin’ so much with this quote!?!?

I read it over and over and over. I went to sleep and meditated on it; I woke up and meditated on it. Thinking on this quote has sent my mind into overdrive. Because of all that I’ve been experiencing, I am becoming a better version of ME. I have learned to embrace ALL of me.  Because of all of my experiences, the meditating, and thinking, right now, I’m in a growth stage. I’m prepping myself to be my best self, and am beginning to walk in my power.

I’m about to:

  • start my educational consulting firm,
  • finish up a chapter for another anthology I’m writing for,
  • finish my first book of poetry,
  • complete my children’s book- the first in the series.

In the words of Cardi B., “I make money moves!”

As always, I will keep you updated on the happenings in my life!

Bye for now!

 

Me, as a Reporter?!?!


Dear Readers,

I’ve been thinking about my next step once I leave the classroom. I thought about becoming a reporter; not as a mandated one, but a real-life reporter. I’d even like to do internet reporting.

If you know me, then you know that this is a big step for me because I was not allowed to ask questions as a child. My father was truly old school. He thought that kids should be seen and not heard. When my parents had company over, my siblings and I were not even allowed in the living room.

This affected so many aspects of my life. I never spoke up in class. If I had questions, I waited until after class; I always waited to speak up, never voicing my opinion, unless someone specifically asked for it; not being confident enough to make friends, etc…

Fast forward to 2018 and I am a totally different person now. I ask questions and make friends quite easily now (When I want to). It’s almost like a game. So much so, that I’ve turned meeting new people into a sort of interview process. As I was interviewing (making friends) with someone, I thought that I could totally turn this into something I’d enjoy doing.

Chalk this up to another thing I never thought I’d want to do!
