When I think about why I have chosen the path that I am currently on, I think about all my WHYS- God! My daughters! My mothers! My aunties! My sisters! My new grandson! My nieces! Black women! Our youth!

You literally (not figuratively) have to lose your mind in order to follow your heart.
Your ‘mind’ will try to block EVERY possible thought you possess that goes against the ‘comfortable brain’ that it’s striving to be. Your ‘comfortable’ thoughts; your relaxed and settled mind wants nothing to do with the ‘different’ or complicated existence that your heart is fighting to sustain. Attaining that newness will disrupt the brain’s “normal” comfort zone. It wants to remain complacent and relaxed without exerting any extra energy, or providing any thought to do anything extra beyond what it’s already doing.

When I look back over my years growing up I realize how truly blessed I am to be an entrepreneur. I grew up with two parents (Thomas and Gloria) whose families migrated from the south to Milwaukee when they were young, where there were more employment opportunities; especially in factory jobs.

What is my WHY? What is my Purpose? Why do I press on?
I’m 64 years old. God has prepared me for such a time as this. Over the years I have looked back over my life and often wondered why certain things happened to me. I think about how decisions I’ve made, (often unwise), have gotten me to this point. I think about how if I had just made even one or two different choices my entire life would have ended up differently.
I recently heard one of the “Sharks” on “Shark Tank” make this statement, “…People that succeed in life tend to have a need for something greater than themselves…” That is how I define a passionate WHY— the reason you do what you do.
When I think about having a “Super Power” my mind goes to something or someone that is extremely influential, very dominant, intentional, and beyond powerful. As I look back over my life, my mind wanders to what my actual purpose is and I conclude that my purpose is so much bigger than anything I could ever want personally for myself.
Like so many other women I know, I understand firsthand what it’s like to take care of everybody else & neglect our own self care over periods of time.
We pour, pour & then pour some more into everything & everyone we love & care about, & then have the audacity to be upset & not understand why we are not showing up in our best lights (if barely at all). Can anybody else relate to that, or is that just me?
“You are gifted and the world is waiting on you!” Some of the most beautiful places on earth have remained untouched, uninhabited, and unexplored by humans. Is it because they are hidden or possess special qualities that even humans cannot discover?
I have been through several seasons in my life: Wife, mother, divorcee, empty nester. One constant throughout those seasons is my identity being tied to each of them. I was known as “So n So’s wife or ex-wife”. I was my daughters' Mom. I am even known as “LeftEye’s G-Ma”, and people speak to me through her because they know her name and not mine.
What do people encounter when they encounter you?
Does your outward appearance align with your purpose in life?
Our life’s purpose radiates and motivates us to get up every morning—striving to fulfill that purpose. But what if you are unaware of your purpose? When a woman is unaware of her purpose, it affects everything about her from the inside out. Did you know that the way you feel about yourself internally always exudes externally?
