Wow, it seems like forever since I've last talked to you lovely ladies…
Let me first start out in saying, I sincerely apologize for leaving you all hanging for so long… You ladies have definitely been in my thoughts and prayers during my mini hiatus.
Without dragging you through all the gory details, let’s just say 2016 started out pretty rough to say the least for me. From unexpected financial obligations, breakdowns in relationships, to finding myself exhausted from stress and anxiety you name it, it pretty much happened right in the beginning of the year.
I found myself in much need of reflection, rest and ultimately a whole lot of self-care.
And like I preach to you lovely ladies on a daily basis, I realized that if I didn't take care of myself mentally, physically and spiritually then I wouldn't be any good to all you beautiful women I was called to serve.
During this time away, I found myself making some pretty critical decisions. A lot entailed letting go of some people, both personally and professionally. Not only that but I also I had to embrace the idea of thinking outside the box and stretching myself to limits I didn’t know I had in me.
Ultimately, it opened my eyes to see a shift was taking place in the atmosphere. Needless to say, a different direction needed to be made and this included for Hey Mz. Lady too!
You see I realized, that you and I deserve the absolute best life God intended for us to have.
This includes every area in life.
I don't care if it's in career path, personal relationships, spiritual awareness, financial tides whatever you can think of in your life's journey it deserves the absolute best, which has become the new mantra for Hey Mz. Lady…
For me, this has been a hard lesson to learn and whole heartedly believe throughout the years. I found myself settling so much personally that it began affecting me in other areas of my life.
I talked a really big game on the surface, but when specific opportunities presented themselves or I found myself in compromising interactions, it was as though I thought I had to sacrifice my happiness for someone else's.
Even worse, I began to question was I worthy of the life I truly desired…
Truth of the matter was, I knew I deserved better, but the idea of leaving the world I knew for something that I was uncertain of down right freaked me out.
But even in the midst of me freaking out, I knew I couldn't stay in that head space or toxicity anymore. You see when you realize enough is truly enough, the idea of staying in the same place never sits well with you.
Not in your head.
Not in your spirit.
And certainly, not in your gut!
It picks at you every chance it gets until change become hands down inevitable…
If there is anything I fully realized during this time apart from you ladies is that my journey is not just for me to learn and grow from at all…
I then started to realize, how selfish it was of me to think it ever did in the first place…
My journey is to help and inspire others. When I made the decision to answer the call in my own life, I became obligated to show up for the countless other people to receive everything I have to offer them.
Whether it's through my gifts, talents, advice or mere presence, those countless others require me to be there for them, so that they can do the same for the next set of people down the line.
Ah the good ole ripple effect, where each of us gets to pay it forward in ways that mere words can't always describe!
So in part of this new direction, I realized - which honestly means God revealed it to me - that it was time to take Hey Mz. Lady to the next level and actually interact with you beautiful souls live and in color. Which is why I'm so proud to announce our new personal development life coaching initiative entitled Mz. Lady University!
Mz. Lady University was created to help ladies like yourselves become the very best version of yourself through guided self-awareness and accountability. Quite too often, many of us place our hopes, dreams and self-esteem into the hands of others when we have the power to create and live the life we always imagined for ourselves. It is at Mz. Lady University where you ladies can find your voice, change unhealthy thought processes & behaviors and get into alignment to where your life’s journey is calling you to be.
This is by no means your usual boring classroom. This program has been created for women like you from all over that are ready to live their absolute best life ever!
And as an extension of Mz. Lady University, we are also excited to launch Mz. Lady Meet-Ups and social gatherings! These events can be joined with us live or online to help foster empowerment, personal development, spiritual development and authentic relationships within each of our journeys.
For those of you who will be or are in the Chicago area on April 22nd we are kicking off our first Mz. Lady Meet-Up! This will be a Ladies Nite Out event that helps us embrace the idea of self-care through laughter and sisterhood! Click the link below to find out more information!!!
I must say, this is the beauty of self-care at it’s finest.
When you allow yourself to get the rest you need it helps you to see the big picture and begin to operate from your absolute best versus from the lack there of…
There are so many new and exciting things taking place at Hey Mz. Lady that it would take forever for me to walk you ladies through on this post…
