3 Steps to Personal Revolution- Step 3: Create purpose -- on purpose!

This is the BEST part of our personal revolution journey. We’ve gone through a process of healing and releasing. Doesn’t it just feel right? You just got a bunch of junk out of your spirit. It was taking up space and energy that you need to create a new reality for yourself. At this point, you’ve gained clarity about your beliefs, expectations, values, and priorities. You have a better understanding of what YOU want without the weight of expectations.

3 Steps to Personal Revolution - Step 2: Release External Expectation

In order to continue on the path of **Personal Revolution**, you must also release the expectations that have been unfairly placed upon you simply because of your Black Womanhood. Black Women literally birthed the world's population. Humanity started in our wombs. We have been programmed to carry the world's weight on our shoulders and its burdens in our spirits. We feel an inherent need to nurture, rear and protect all things.

3 Steps to Personal Revolution - Step 1: Healing Your Way to Fulfillment

Let's get real -- real. You;re on the list because there is a need in your life. You are not 100% happy with your current state and you want to change. However, you have yet to figure out how.

The answer is simple. Embark on a PERSONAL REVOLUTION!

Notice that I said simple...not easy.

personal revolution is usually triggered by reaching a point in your life when you can no longer do what you’ve been doing. The status quo is doing more harm than good. You thought that you had life figured out and suddenly, you understood NOTHING. There is that moment in your life when you know that you MUST change or you will never be fulfilled. It may have been facilitated by the loss of a loved one, leaving a job, a shitty relationship or even a personal realization that you are unfulfilled and have no idea where your life is going.

Your Favorite Coach is Lying to You

Quick story. When my mom passed away I was dating someone. We had only been dating a few months, so it wasn’t anything I was doing flips over. Less than one week after burying my mom she asked me “ Why are you always so sad these days?” I responded that my mother had just died and… yeah… i was allowed to be sad. This woman said to me. “ Well, you’re just choosing to be sad by focusing your thoughts on the negative event. It's simple Law of Attraction.”

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?

You should be doing life different...

Do look at your life and say “ This is not where I planned to be at this point.”? From the outside, things look great. You are other folk’s #goals. Girl, you got it goin’ on. But on the inside, you are dying. You have this nagging feeling that you should have done more by now.

I should already have THAT house.

I should already have THAT car.

I should have already made THAT million.

I should already be married to THAT person.

I should have already started that business.

Burn All The Bridges

We have been conditioned to take any shit that is thrown our way without our crowns even wobbling. Anyone can shit on a plate and call it love and we''re supposed eat it up and ask for seconds. FUCK THAT! That’s unfair and I’m done with that thinking.

Healing cannot take place if you’re surrounded by toxicity.

Why I Cut Off My Family After My Grandmother’s Funeral

My grandmother died two weeks ago. As I prepared for the funeral, I thought long and hard about whether we should even go. I, like most of you, have complex relationships with my family. While not getting into the nitty-gritty of our family dynamics, I’ll say I had mixed emotions. After lots of discussions with my sibs, (I’m the oldest of three), we decided to go. Our late mother’s mother is gone. We were obligated to go to represent her, right? Also, we were the only ones that knew what it felt like to lose a mother and wanted to be present and available for our aunts.

Fast Forward ----- Funeral morning.

Hey, Strong Black Woman...

This is the biggie. **STRONG BLACK WOMAN SYNDROME**. It is the belief that Black women are immune to any perceived weakness and must remain STRONG AND UNBOTHERED at all times. Have you ever felt this?

It's become a phrase that has gone from empowering to thoroughly offensive. Moreso, it's problematic.

Don't Save Her!

Project Pat knew all the things in 2001 when he released **Don’t Save Her.** ( She don't wanna be saved.) You can’t save everyone. Everyone does not want to be saved.

But really we are captain save ‘ems that are only serving ourselves.
