The Empowered Creative Woman Week Four

“You couldn't relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. You had to accept it as a whole--like the world, or the person you loved.” 

 I don't know about you but I
 have been sooooooo inspired by YOUR work 
in our Facebook group! GREAT job, girls!!

If this is the first time hearing about Sherry Canino and I's FREE workshop or you just need to catch up here are the links to Week's One-Three. 

Be sure and ask to join our private Facebook group for more inspiration...The Empowered Creative Woman

Welcome to Week Four of The Empowered Creative Woman Workshop

Our focus this week is Acceptance. 
So much thought has gone into this concept off Accepting where I am in my life.
It's not an easy thing to do...but once you make the decision to Accept
what life is dishing up at the moment...there is a wave of Peace that comes over you.
It's almost magical.
And I promise no matter what's going on in your world today
you CAN take your Power back once you
stop resisting, stop complaining and stop blaming.

Our prompts for the week


“Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, So what. That's one of my favorite things to say. So what.” 
― Andy WarholThe Philosophy of Andy Warhol

Let's talk about Acceptance

It has been a WONDERFUL Workshop and I can't wait to 
see what you come up with this week!!!

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.” 
― BrenĂ© 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?
