Creating Your Own Lane

Creating your own lane can be a difficult thing to do these days.  So many of us want to swerve in and out of various lanes to appear to others that we can do ALL things, but some us actually crash before reaching our destination. 

In today’s episode, I talk about the importance of seeking and identifying what your true love and passion is.  I know some believe that they are multi-talented and some are, but me personally I am starting to realize and accept that I can only work on one talent at a time.  When I was trying to have my “car aka my hand” in various lanes I was completely unorganized, very unproductive and extremely stressed.  I was stressed, because I wasn’t seeing progress and the reason I wasn’t seeing progress was because I wasn’t giving the task my full commitment and focus.  When I stopped trying to be in all 4 four lanes at once.  I saw so much progress and growth. 

 Now I am not saying that you should never switch lane and move onto bigger and better things, but I would say that you should get comfortable in your lane first then switch.  Getting comfortable means doing your research on your gift and talent, speak with experts who were once in your lane or the lane that you are thinking about moving into and practice your gifts while in your current lane before moving into the fast lane. 

Again, I am not saying that you should only utilize one of the many gifts that God has given to you, but you must be honest with yourself and really seek, listen and embrace what He wants you to focus on.  Creating a lane that you can call your own brings more joy, happiness, growth and peace than you can ever imagine. 

I hope you enjoy this episode.  The goal for this podcast is to inspire others, but the more I record its becoming my audio diary.  Talk to you in the next episode.

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!

Pretty Girl Teez

I am sooo excited to share this podcast episode with everyone!  One of my goals when starting this podcast was to give young girls who are doing great work in school and there community a voice.  Their are so many podcasts now that are geared and focused solely on adults, but the more I looked at my own group of young girls I realized that people need to know the positive things they are doing.  

I discovered Pretty Girl Teez when they started to follow our Instagram page.  After reading their business bio on their page I was interested in learning more about the company and the owner.  During this podcast you will learn more about the owner, Azaria Cherry and how Pretty Girl Teez and her non-profit, Z inc. came about.  

Here is her bio for you to read:

Azaria Cherry is a 13 year old, rising freshman at Maury High School in Norfolk, VA. Since the tender age of 6 she has dreamed of attending Spelman and aspires to become a pediatrician. In fact, she is one of 48 students selected within the entire city of Norfolk to participate in the prestigious Maury Medical and Health Specialities program. A medical partnership between her high school and Eastern Virginia Medical School that allows students to take medical courses on top of their required Advanced Diploma workload. Azaria’s love for science, human rights, and entrepreneurship has allowed her to form her own organization for inner city youth girls and her own clothing business selling positive affirmation tee-shirts. In her spare time, she enjoys numerous volunteer community engagements, cheering on her high school JV squad, Forensics, National Jr. Honor Society, FBLA, and Swimming. Although her plate is extremely full she maintains nothing less than a 3.8 GPA. Over the next couple of years she looks forward to tackling more personal goals that she has set for herself. 

I hope you are inspired by her story and goals for life.  I will forever be grateful for her, because by discovering her she forced me to research "How to record interviews for podcasting".  I kept making excuses as to why I couldn't record interviews, but because I wanted people to learn about this #Phenomenal young girl I challenged myself to find the solution on how to record an interview.  

Please support and follow her on all her social media pages.  She is having a Back to School drive in the Norfolk area.  So if you are in the area reach out to her to see if she needs any assistance.

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!
