We begin Women’s History and Appreciation Month celebrating phenomenal women who walk into this space through many doors. They willingly share their stories authentically and often vulnerably in order to pay forward what they have learned and to celebrate each other. Thank you, ladies!
Irish author C.S. Lewis says,
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You Too? I thought I was the only one.”
As a result of the women who have agreed to join me at the table, many friendships, although virtual will be forged.
Author and life coach Iyanla Vanzant says, “Life will accommodate you in any way that you choose. Life is always listening to the silent requests of your heart and mind. Life is always surveying the landscape of your heart, gathering the bits and pieces of the emotions buried there. Life is always monitoring the activity of your tongue, checking for ruins and sacred elements. Life knows that your mind, heart, and mouth will produce the requests of your consciousness even when you are most aware of it.
Until today, you may not have realized that life is answering your requests. You may not have believed that you have the power and the right to ask life for more than you already have right now. Just for today, be devoted to creating a life of positive, joyful requests. Create them first in your mind. Next create them in your heart. Then speak to them into existence. Be sure to remember what you have created. If it does not show up, check your counter requests.
Repeat after me, Today I am devoted to creating and requesting what I truly desire to experience in life.”
I met today’s guests a few years ago, each on a separate occasion where their stories were shared, inspired, and begged for more.
Please welcome Ms. Kari Galloway and Ms. Helenia Bragg to the Frankly Speaking table. Their stories embody lessons not taught in school and affirm the belief that what happens to you is not who you are.
