Girl Talk + Floral Trousers and Duster Coat

You ladies know that I love a good kiki with the girls. So I figured I would bring my girl talks to the blog! Welcome. And please understand that I am chatting with you woman to woman. Keep these conversation between you and I, don’t share all my business with anyone else! Just you and I. (kapeesh.)

I always see a commercial were Oprah is talking to a lady and she ask her, “How do you show up in your life?” They didn’t show the ladies answer (of course), but it makes me wonder how does a person answer a question like that?

Over the weekend I wrote an email to my girl tribe telling them a little bit about my personal story. I always encourage them to be open and honest with the women they meet in order to further along their relationships. And yesterday was a moment for me to practice what I’ve been preaching.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. That exposing myself and parts of my life that I’ve worked hard to outgrow didn’t scare me, but I pressed forward anyway. So I see the Oprah commercial again today. (I don’t have cable, I watch Roku so a lot of the commercial repeat themselves often. Lol.) I answered the question, “How do you show up in my life everyday?”

I show up positive, optimistic and faithful against all odds. I show up curious and eager to embrace others. I show up sharing my truth in order to help light and illuminate others.

I want to hear from you… How do you show up in your life everyday? I also what to know what are somethings you’d love to chat about during ‘Girl Talk’? Let me know!
