March 17, 2016 my friend Lanita


This is her birthday.

She has a magnificence

Regal from standing under the height of the men she raises.

She sparks their attention,

they account with revolution.

She sets them up for freedom 

for liberty, 

the way that makes us want to run when the road starts to catch fire.

Fueled with fire.

A spirit ignited.

She encourages.

She is a force.

A force to be reckoned with –

the ally who loves with everything in her.

In her sphere, we are honored to have her fighting on our behalf.

Her guts leave my mouth hanging open, 

but only because there is a piece of me

that wishes I was as bold.

And, because I know it is fueled by an ultimate love … 

the kind that is soft and passionate about teaching others to step into their power.

Happy birthday, my fellow three-sons mom, Lanita.

You are a constant in helping me shine my brightest these last few years-

From rallying me through the trenches…

You back me no matter what power I choose to step in to, 

but, more importantly, you continue to model standing in your own.

You prove that recognizing we are special doesn’t make us arrogant, 

but actually helps us also see how special everyone else is.

It is an honor to be in this world watching you shine your light

in ways that benefit others and energize you.

We are lucky to have the gift of YOU.

I stand up with gratitude for you and the other women in our lives 

that continue to shape you and me …

those that showcase 

their power,

their amplitude,

their strength,

their stamina,

their courage, and

their transforming love.

Happy birthday, happy year – Love, love you!

Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey.
