Coach and be Coached

Post Image

This may come as a surprise to some, but I am a certified coach who has coaches…YES, I have more than one coach and I pay them all. There are many who question why coaches hire other coaches. Many think it will take away from their creditability as a coach; however, I have found quite the opposite to be true. In fact, for most in the […]

Taking Personal Responsibility for Your Spiritual Growth

Post Image

During a conversation with some ladies in a women’s group, we expressed our thoughts regarding spiritual maturity and whose responsibility it is for our spiritual growth. I have not always been, but I am now very strong in my conviction regarding this. It is my belief that as Christians, we have to, at some point, […]

Dealing With Body Discrimination

Post Image

Body discrimination or what some call “fat shaming” can start at a very early age. It is the belief of some researchers that children as young as three have already learned to pick out the “good” and the “bad” bodies and I know this to be true. Once, while eating out with a friend, I witnessed a little girl who appeared […]

Trusting God in Moments of Uncertainty

Post Image

Are you a “born” worrier? I used to be or at least that is what I kept telling myself. “I can’t stop worrying. I was born that way!” The truth is, I was NOT born that way. So what happened? Life happened! At school I used to worry about getting bad grades and at home living up […]

Taking Time to Breathe

Post Image

Many days for me used to be so frenzied that I felt like I was running fast to nowhere…so fast that I could hardly catch my breath. My to-do list ran off my desk and down the hallway. I was overtired, overcommitted and overwhelmed. There were days that I wanted to scream out loud and some days I did. Well, actually I […]

Can Guilt be a Good Thing?

Sometimes guilt is useful and healthy. Without it we would feel no remorse for hurting others or breaking laws. Because we want to avoid feeling remorseful, we are often more mindful of the way we treat others. However, should we somehow cause hurt to someone, either intentional or unintentional, guilt can motivate us to try […]

Do People Really Change?

Post Image

   Is it really possible for someone to change? Absolutely! But they are not going to change because we want them to. While most people know this to be so, it doesn’t stop them from trying to force the change anyway. Changing others used to be my mission in life. I used to think it so important […]

Are You Bitter or Better? – Knowing the Difference

Some say they are better off after the breakup of a relationship, losing a job, not getting a role for which they auditioned, or the downfall of their business. They say that they have overcome it and the situation is no longer an issue. However, when they are revengeful, full of rage, and they continuously make it a topic […]

Take Back Your Life

I recently collaborated with a fellow speaker, coach and most of all friend, to present an Empowerment Shop (most call them workshops) on how to Take Your Life Back After a Loss. Through this event we, along with some of the participants, shared stories of our lives being  overcome with major obstacles and how we were able to rebound from our […]

Masks Can be a Burden

Post Image

For almost four decades I hid behind several masks. As a child I started to put on  masks and exhibit certain behaviors to get the love, strokes and attention that I felt I needed. As I got older, more and more masks became embedded in my skin. As I grew older, my masks were protective barriers that I put on […]
