Hello… (crickets) So this is what I was expecting after my break became a sabbatical and my sabbatical became “Umm...Am I even doing this anymore?”
sabbatical: any extended period of leave from one’s customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training, etc. Things don’t always happen as planned. If I could create a movie based off my life, the movie title would be “But We Didn’t Rehearse This.”
I cannot believe we are already at the end of 2017. This year has been full of new experiences for me as I started blogging (again) and coaching. So for the next few posts I’m going to share with you, three things that I’ve learned in 2017. Numero uno… People are watching you. (insert spooky music)
Growing up, I remember there was this toy that I would play with. The objective was to fit the wooden pieces through the matching cut-out shape. A triangle piece could only fit through the cut-out area for a triangle and so on and so on. I remember using all my little strength to try to squeeze these wooden pieces into the incorrect spot.

For the past couple of years, every summer, I participate in an event that is imperative to my self-care.

Through empowerment sessions, fellowship and fun, the retreat allows women the much needed time for self-care. This year, we were at the gorgeous Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. The weather was perfect, the people were amazing and I just knew I was going to have a great time...
Saw this at the museum and thought about how easily we flip-flop between these two statements. "I can't go on. I'll go on." That is the choice we are faced with every single day...
...creating list can get a little complicated when it comes to specific areas of our lives. Like "The Perfect Man" list. Women have 235 items on the list and if the guys they date don't come close to it then it's just not meant to be. When we make a list, typically there's a level of expectation, right?
You ever tell yourself you're going to do something and at first you do it, you're consistent, you're winning! But then you miss a day... And then a day turns into weeks...
Trust. I once participated in the icebreaker from hell. We all had to break off into pairs and one person had to be blindfolded. As my luck had it, the Chosen Blindfolded Beauty Queen happened to be me. So I reluctantly allowed myself to be blindfolded and I held onto my partners arm for dear … Continue reading Icebreaker from Hell
I lied. Not intentionally. But a lie is a lie...I guess. I said I would never create another blog again and yet here I am typing away. Welcome to Changed by Purpose! My aim is to create content that takes the secrecy off purpose. Believe it or not there are people who die happily in their sleep, every night who lived a long life not knowing what the heck they were created for.
