Stop Overthinking It

What is keeping you from living your best life?  Are you thinking that every step of your process has to be in line, in order for you to start your task?  In today’s episode, I talk about how to stop overthinking things.  When it comes to overthinking I am the QUEEN.  For many years I have allowed my “planner” and “to-do” list ways keep me from moving toward my dreams.  Now don’t get my wrong.  Having a plan and being organized is ALWAYS important, but you should also be willing to learn and grow from every step that you are taking towards your goals and dreams. 

Overthinking the process not only prolongs the dreams, but a lot of times it can keep a person stagnant.  I have list after list of things that I want to do, but I thought that my office needed to look a certain way, my voice edits for my podcast episodes needed to be perfect, and so on.  It wasn’t until late December that I realized that it’s either now or never.  I have made huge investments in P.U.R.E. Girls and I refuse to stay at this current level for another year.  It’s never going to be the right time and I won’t be able to avoid the mistakes that will occur.  Everything that I do from this day forward is solely based off of faith, belief and trust in God and myself.  When God gives us an idea for a project, a business, a career.  We aren’t suppose to just dwell on the idea, we must take action towards it.  You must do the research, talk to experts in those fields, watch tutorials, read the books and remain prayerful.  God sees into our hearts and knows all of our desires and dreams.  If they fall into place with his plan then it will work together for our good.  So stop overthinking everything and go get what is yours!

Sharing my Story with Ebony M. Watson

On today’s episode we have Ebony M. Watson.  Ebony is up and coming inspirational speaker who is eager to share her story of past struggles and abuse with teens and women around the world.  It’s never easy to share stories of struggles, feelings of low self-esteem and insecurities with groups that you are unfamiliar with, but Ebony goal is to share her raw stories and most private struggles with her audience.  One of the many struggles that she talks about is her experiences with in foster care.  

During our conversation, we talk about her reasoning for wanting to share her story with the world.  How she overcame being physically and verbally abused while in foster care, which resulted in depression. I believe this episode will connect with all our listeners.  If you have ever been through something or currently going through an issue.  This episodes will let you know that you are not alone in your struggle.  We may not be experiencing the exact struggle, but there are people dealing with issues each and every day.  What I loved most about her story is how she didn’t allow her struggles to keep her from pursuing her dreams and goals.  Not only is she an inspirational speaker, but she also has her Masters in Social Work and is currently working within a school.

I hope you all enjoy this episode.  I pray that it inspires you to keep pushing through whatever is trying to keep you down.  You are more than a conqueror.

Living My Best Life

Can you honestly say that you are living your best life at this very moment?  Are all of your dreams coming true?  Did you get accepted into top college choice?  Did you receive a new job offer?  Are you waking up every morning excited to see what God has planned for you today?  If you answered "no" to any of these questions, then this podcast is for you!

I was finally able to listen to the new Cardi B album and I am honestly enjoying it.  What I enjoy most about her music is the honesty, passion and rawness that she brings to each song.  I heard the song "Living My Best Life" back in May, but didn't pay much attention to the words (I was just happy to be vibin with my sisters that weekend lol.)  A few weeks have passed since hearing it, but I recently played the song this week and it is now in daily routine in my car!!  

During this episode, I discuss a few of the rap lines that stood out most to me.  While listening to the song I, of course, started to reflect on my life.  Am I really living my best life?  My version of living my best life use to consist of driving a dope car, carrying a Chanel bag, shopping every weekend, eating out almost every night and working a high paying job.  

Well let me bring you into my reality.  I drive a Honda Accord (she's cute, but she's no Benz), no Chanel bag, no shopping for me personally in almost a year(I shop for my children all the time), I can count on one hand how many times I have ate out this week, and my job is great, but it's not much left over once I pay my bills and take care of my kids and house.  

So does this mean I am not living my best life?  No it doesn't.  I realized that I am working long and hard to achieving and receiving those things, but living my best life involves seeing my kids smile, having them dressed nice when we go places, and being a responsible adult and paying my bills on time, traveling with my husband, and spending time with my family. 

I encourage to look around and find the small things that make living your best life your current reality.  Always remember to pray daily and believe that all your desires shall be added unto you.  I am excited to see your version of living your best life!

Choose Happiness

Do you want to be happy?  Do you know what it feels like to be happy?  Do you rely on others to make you happy? Or do you know how to make yourself happy?  

In this week's episode, I talk to you about the importance of ALWAYS choosing happiness.  In lieu of the two recent celebrity deaths I felt the need to speak about what being happiness can bring to your life.  I know trials, issues, frustrations, sadness, emptiness are things that you possibly face everyday.  But what you need to understand is that the issues, trials etc. are not meant to break you.  They are put there to help you realize your strengths.  

You might get tired, but during the episode I share with you how to find your "happy place".  I encourage you to take notes using our P.U.R.E. Moments journal.  This episode will have you thinking and wondering how to make your outlook on life much better.  Life is not easy, but it's definitely worth the ride.

My Mother and I

In this week's episode, I share with you my personal relationship with my mother.  As a little girl, my mother and I did not have the best relationship.  I rarely told her what was going in my life, at school or my relationships.  My reason being is because I never felt as though she would understand me.  My mother was the disciplinary of our family.  Anytime you got in trouble at school, my mother was the one who gave the beating, put you on punishment etc.  

So when I left for college I viewed that as my way to distance myself even further from her.  I rarely called while away at college.  I went home often, but I never really shared with her my full college experience.  It wasn't until I had my daughter in May 2007 that my mother and I relationship began to rebuild.  For the first year of my daughter being born, my mother was with me every step of the way.  I was dealing with an emotional break up with my daughter father and my mother was there to remind me that all things will work and be ok.  During that year she shared stories with me about her past relationships and how she moved on from them.  When she opened up to me as if it was two friends talking, I started to see her in a different light.  

As you continue to listen to the episode, you will hear more examples on how my mother and I have built an unforgettable bond.   I encourage you to allow your mom to be who she needs to be for you.  I know it may seem as though she doesn't understand you nor does she allow you to do much, but I promise it's only because her first assignment as your mother is to protect you.  

I hope you enjoy the episode and I look forward to reading the comments.  Also, if you love it that much, please rate this episode and others on Itunes!
