ABOUT THE WOMEN DO BLOG

We have all felt the pressure to live up to others' standards or live life a certain way, but the truth is no one can ever live up to anything that wasn't meant for them or walk in a path that belongs to someone else. We are all individuals with different goals and passions. We have to do our lives our way, we have to live for ourselves, we have to forget the 'rules'.

Becoming Fearless

 

December 4, 2019

I once was told to make sure I was ‘always sweet’ or it could cause issues in my career. People who know the story have asked me how it made me feel and truthfully it made me angry. This ‘piece of advice’ came from someone in a leadership role and it felt more like som...

When I decided I wanted to create the Confidence Project I didn’t realize how much it would affect me (in all positive ways) or how much I would learn in just the one week running it. I was lucky that the women who took part trusted me in our one on one conversations a...

For too many years, I stood in the shadows hoping and wishing I could make more out of my life.  But I always hesitated, always came up short, always had an excuse or a justifiable ‘reason’ for not meeting my goals and my heart head on. I was getting in my own way at e...

Is it me?

I have gotten so much better at asking myself this when conflict arises in my life. And thank God because I’ve learned that my ability to grow and be the person I want to be relies on my willingness to honestly analyze my own behaviors and tendencies.

I wasn’t...

Have you ever experienced one of those periods in life where you feel like you just keep taking hits? Every door seems to shut. Every answer is no. You feel like the people who should value what you bring to the table don’t. Or that the things you think should work kee...

Powerless to make any real change, I hate this feeling. Everyday there is something new that makes me sad or angry and I want to fix it. But I feel like I can’t. I have no real power, or place of stature, I am not wealthy, and I don’t feel like I have the time it takes...

Dear Women, 

I think about how powerful we are. How are brilliant we are. How beautiful we are. I look around and I see our potential to change this world. I look at the US Women’s Soccer Team and I am inspired by their boldness and by their decision to not make themsel...

July 1st is the one year anniversary of Women Do and I could not be happier about its progress as well as my own over the past 365 days.

At the beginning I made a commitment to post on social media (IG, FB) every day and write a blog every week, it was a promise I...

Do you ever have moments where you wish that you could stop time?

I sat at a table surrounded by some of my closest girlfriends where we laughed, we cried, and we shared our most intimate stories. They were stories that have caused us pain and joy, stories that have mol...

My dad has stood beside me through life’s ups and downs. He has pushed me to do things on my own, he has encouraged me to reach out for help, he has raised me to have an independent spirit, and he has given me the gift of mindful prayer before acting. He has taught me...
