GET SHE-POWERED!

I strongly believe that a woman fueled by the SIRIT, empowered with CONFIDENCE, and driven towards PURPOSE is an unstoppable force.

You can have the most fabulous wardrobe and be on top of your beauty game, but if you don’t nurture yourself on the inside, you can only go so far. Just as a car, regardless of its exterior, can only go as far as its engine will take it, you must give your engine the proper maintenance to power through the challenges of life.

It can be hard to find the time to do both the inner and outer work. We live in a world that puts such high expectations on women. Our looks are constantly being compared to fabricated (and unrealistic) expectations, and the roles we are to fulfill are an evolving combination of both traditional and modern-day ones. If we dare try to put ourselves first, we can quickly be consumed by guilt.

But what happens if we wait until our engine breaks down to do the work? Can we bounce back without permanent repercussions?

MY FIRST TEST 
 

My first truly traumatic experience that tested my engine to the core was giving birth to my stillborn son at 33 weeks gestation. I can say with certainty that there was nothing I could have done to prepare for that experience. I’m not sure I powered through it super smoothly. I was on survival mode for the longest time, simply trying to function, mostly for my daughter who was 22 months at that time. However, I was blessed enough that rather than setting off on a downward spiral from it, my loss prompted a spiritual journey in my life and lit a fire in my heart for supporting women in their emotional health.
 

My desire to connect with God, as well as share with others the hope my faith gave me in my healing, grew tremendously. I also felt by doing so I was carrying on a purposeful legacy for my son, which made the loss a little more bearable. 

 

The first time I felt it was okay for still broken and severely imperfect me to take some sort of leadership role in counseling other women was when I formed a support group I called “Mommies of Angels,” shortly after my stillbirth. I felt God called me to do so. I knew that if I was looking for that bond and support, other women probably were, too. From there came other groups as I moved to new states, as well as individual interactions formed because of friends or acquaintances asking me to reach out to a loved one needing support.  

 

I must admit, reaching out to women at a time in their lives when I KNOW they don’t want to hear from a stranger, and that nothing I say is going to greatly comfort them yet, has taken some balls. I don’t have a go-to speech when reaching out and I still get nervous that I will do it wrong. All I can do is ask God to empower and use me as an instrument of comfort to these women, and hope he puts the right words in my mouth. Miraculously so, I haven’t messed up or chickened out yet. What can I say, God has given me the right words and a pair of balls when I needed them (gotta love the irony of a balls analogy in the SHE-POWERED category).  

 

THE POWER INGREDIENTS  

SPIRIT 

Whoever you pray to, and whatever your faith lies in, your spiritual fortitude is your engine’s power source. It is crucial not to plateau in this area and continue to have spiritual growth. Although I don’t like it, I believe that is one of the reasons life throws challenges our way. We need to be tested. Being in strong spiritual shape can help us power through the tests and come out on top. I’ve always been of strong faith. I even grew up wanting to be a nun (a dream put to rest when I learned they wear the same thing every day). But my loss in 2009 marked the beginning of what I consider my spiritual awakening. As vulnerable as it might make me feel, I know some of the revelations and experiences I’ve had on my journey, which are a blend of faith and spirituality, need to be shared.  

 

CONFIDENCE 

Confidence is in my opinion, one of the BIGGEST factors in women’s decision making. It can help you go big if you have it, settle if you’re unsure, or self-doubt if you lack it. Because my entire life up until recently has been a journey of confidence building, I’m excited to cover this topic and share what I’ve learned, and will continue to learn, along the way.  

 

PURPOSE  

We’re all created for something bigger than ourselves. That reason for our creation, and why we possess the unique qualities that we do, is our purpose. I strongly believe that the only way to be truly fulfilled is to lead a purpose-driven life. I’m passionate about inspiring women to connect with their purpose and maintain their identity outside of societal expectations. I experienced first-hand the effects of almost losing my personal identity and disconnecting with my purpose to focus on everyone else’s needs first (more of which I will cover on the blog). No one wins in that scenario.  

 

 

LET’S GET SHE-POWERED! 

I hope you join me on this path of embracing the power of our vulnerability and using it as our instrument to become someone stronger, more grounded, and fiercer than we ever thought possible. Let’s have our pitcher and ingredients ready so when life gives us lemons, we serve it an invigorating lemonade! Let’s do it together to help unite and strengthen the female force. Let’s get SHE-POWERED! 

 

Welcome to Mom Life

Welcome to Mom Life

I think I speak on behalf of all my fellow moms out there when I say that life BC (before children) is a whole other adventure than life as we knew It prior to. The words “I’m so tired,” “I need some me time”, and “more laundry?!”….take on a whole new meaning. I try to sympathize when my kid-free friends complain about not having enough time for themselves but quite honestly, I’m biting my tongue as I think to myself, “HA!!!! you just wait!”

As I mentioned in my bio, I launched my business in the midst of birthing, nursing, and raising my three little ones. There wasn’t a lot of time for me to think about HOW I was going to make it happen. I focused on the WHY, took a no excuses approach, and went for it. Not that this is a bragging right but, my business plan consisted of, do more of what works, less of what doesn’t, and try to get some sleep in between!

Was it easy? No. Was it guilt-free? Heck No!!

Did I make mistakes? Yes! Was it worth it? Hell Yeah!!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard the words, “Why can’t you wait until your kids are older to do this?” from a concerned family member, well I’d have funded my business a little more seamlessly than I did (understatement of the year). But here’s the kicker. The very little people that were the concern around this question, were the ones enjoying the ride with me the most.

My kids have been with me every step of the way. They have been on fabric store trips, crazy long model fittings leading up to my shows, stayed up way past their bed time to attend my fashion shows (upon request), “assisted” me at photo shoots, made a mess in my studio pretending to be fashion designers, and even made a little extra cash here and there steaming clothes (hey, it’s not child labor, it’s child opportunity). Not to mention the amount of mom booty shaking they have gotten to watch at my fitness classes and home choreography sessions (sorry kids). Sure, as my business has grown, and they’ve become school aged, they don’t need to come along to as much anymore. But I have, and continue, to share enough moments with them to know they feel included and love the journey. So much so that they brag to their friends at school about what I do, and their friends think they have a “famous mom” and google me during electronics break (yeah, that’s a thing). I don’t have the heart to tell them I’m mostly only famous at Starbucks right now.

As much as they have been along for the ride, in an effort to be a “good mom”, I have kept their involvement in this part of my life private. I chose to do so for their own safety (you know those internet wackos you hear about) and to avoid looking like I’m using them to appear a certain way. It wasn’t until the past few months that I realized one thing. Not only am I concealing one of the most important aspects of my life, I am also operating out of fear. My journey in building my business has revolved around them and not sharing them with the world is like sharing the cliff notes version of my story.

 

In addition to wanting to protect my kids, I’ve tried to keep myself on the grateful, positivity train, by adapting a “don’t let them see you sweat” approach to life. Rather than complain about my sleep deprivation or being tired of cross country moves to support a spouse’s career, I’ve embraced the beauty of Jesus, coffee, and lipstick (in that order). And then I wonder why people assume I have a full-time nanny and a lot of support. Because I do not let them see me sweat. It’s like I took a juggling club out of the juggling act I share with the world, and secretly break a sweat trying not to drop it. But, the act at its entirety is way more precious than the edited down version. So, with this re-launch and new life I am breathing into my business, I am going to unapologetically share with you a lot more of my best creations, my children! I hope you’re ready for this new juggling act I like to call MOM LIFE!
