It’s been a long time since I have been on my personal blog but all is not lost… I’ve been updating the foundation’s blog on all the work we’ve been doing in the community. Take a look ADHDFDN.
Of course it’s never a dull moment with me. I always have a ton of ideas flowing through my mind to empower others. I am looking forward to announcing what I have brewing for Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is probably the first time I am doing something really special around breast cancer awareness. I have always focused the month of October for Domestic Violence Awareness but this month I’ll work on both :/. Yes October will be a busy month. Stay tuned… I’m excited!
Today was our last day working with the ladies from Central High School. It was a bitter sweet last workshop. We’ve watched the girls grow over the many workshops we’ve had with them. You never know the impact you can have on someone’s life with just a word of encouragement, a smile or a hug. They were blessed with the books and I asked after they read it to share with friends and family.
The work continues. Looking forward to doing some more workshops over the summer and up coming school year. Until then, what will you do to encourage, empower or elevate someone this week.
Love you all xoxo
I am so excited. Yesterday I got to meet with the 3rd group and these ladies where amazing. But what really stood out to me is that the mentors along with the girls got so much out of the workshop. You could feel the room was being empowered. Let’s just say you never know how something affects you from childhood until someone talks about it and it brings you to tears. Sometimes as adults we go through so much, things affect us in different ways and we don’t understand why. Childhood drama if not dealt with will affect the choices you make in your adult life. I’m so happy that I was able to meet with this group yesterday and to see how my story empowered so many.
Here are some pictures from yesterday’s program 2/14/2015.
We had our first workshop yesterday. This group started with 7 girls and will be adding more next session. The workshops are supposed to be one session 3 hours but these girls were so interested in all that I had to say about the book and life skills in general they asked for me to come back. So I will be conducting more workshops with them. My fear and blessing in disguise is that I have a feeling each group (12) will want more sessions. We’ll see how that goes. Whatever help they need I want to be available to assist them. Sometimes all they need is someone to open up to.
Here is to many teens that you have a part in making a difference in their life. xoxoxoxo THANK YOU.
