Women of Purpose #3

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.

First workshop 2/5/2015

Hello all,

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.

How do you REALLY know it’s ADHD???

I was reading the comments that people made regarding this article ADHD can destroy a marriage — here’s how to help and it saddens me how people with and without ADHD truly don’t understand the facts behind ADHD. Yes majority of the symptoms of ADHD everyone has experienced them at different times of their lives or maybe some people every day. The main key with ADHD is does the symptoms affect you in more than one area of your life? Does ADHD affect your work, school, marriage, how you raise your kids, friendships, how you relate to family, how you drive… etc. In my case my ADHD affects me at work, it affected my relationships, married and divorced twice, (will blog on that another time), it affects the way I raise my kids, it affects the way I communicate with people, it took me forever to finish school (read more about that journey and the list goes on. YES, there’s more->->->
