The Empowered Creative Woman Week Three

“Because true belonging 
only happens when we present our authentic, 
imperfect selves to the world,
 our sense of belonging
 can never be greater
 than our level 
of self-acceptance.” 
― Brené Brown




Welcome To Week Three of The Empowered Creative Woman Workshop

Before Week Three gets underway I just want to say Thank You to Sherry Canino for asking me to be a part of this Journey. I am honored to be on this Empowering Journey with each of YOU. 

I invite you to grab your favorite drink, sit back and spend a little bit of time getting to know me.


The minute Sherry invited me to be a part of this workshop I KNEW what the theme would be...

What does it mean to BELONG?



Here are this week's prompts...

*Where do I belong?
*Do I belong?
*Who do I feel a kinship with?
*Do I accept myself?
*What can I do to accept myself?

Word Prompts


*belong
*kinship
*acceptance
*reliance
*tribe
*loyalty
*harmony
*insecurity
*disregard
*disagreement

In the following videos I share my art journal page..."She is a Wildflower".
Peppered throughout the video's are bits of wisdom and Awakenings I have gathered by studying the Word BELONGING. I also share my creative process with you. I hope you ENJOY!

  1. Leslie, I love how your pages turned out! Belonging has always been an issue for me, and for basically alot of the same reasons. To be honest, it still is a struggle and has everything to do with how I feel about me.Slowly I am learning to accept,love and forgive myself, and to show the same kindness to myself that I do to others.This is a powerful lesson. Thank you!
