As a black woman who finally learned to walk through life in her God-given power, I work in community with other black women and allies to build movements for systemic change. But let me tell you something I learned along the way: ladies, we can’t do this without a self-care revolution. Don’t believe me? Let’s talk.
I stand for YOU.
I stand for your fulfillment and joy in actualizing the vision for the life you desire that does not sacrifice your happiness, time with family and makes loving you more every day a priority!
Yes, I stand for your self-care revolution!
It’s time you make the choice to stop carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and allow yourself the freedom to simply be human. I know what it is like to feel the burden to fit into a mold and narrative family, tradition, a job, or society created and find yourself lost trying to find your voice, be seen and heard. I know what it feels like to strive to live into the illusion of perfection only to compromise my liberation to trust in myself to be all of me unashamed and unbothered. I know what it feels like to embody the supernatural strength of the black superwoman schema doing it all ambitiously striving for success and trading in my wellness and peace for overwhelm, exhaustion and burnout instead.
Let's take that pressure OFF today!
The first step is to give yourself permission. This is the hardest part, and that’s why I’m here on this planet - to hold a mirror up to the worthy divine goddess you really are and guide you back to your power.
You have permission to be your highest self.
You have permission to care for yourself as much as you need and rest.
You have permission to co-create the life you love.
You have permission to imagine all the possibilities of change.
You have the permission to make room for your YES, with every NO.
I got you, let’s talk and incite your self-care revolution!
