“Be the role model you needed when you were younger” ~Unknown
The fourth of July of every year is observed to celebrate the Independence of the United States from the British Empire. This day commemorates the date that the Declaration of Independence was signed; the document that declared the then 13 American Colonies a new nation.
Many of us celebrate this day with barbecue’s and brews – enjoying some of summers favorite flavors. Many of us hang out at pool parties whether its in someone’s backyeard or an amusement park or a public pool. Many of us travel far and wide to visit family and friends. Many of us observe fireworks and other pyrotechnics or maybe even light our own.
Considering the risks of all of the aforementioned activities, She Lifts Podcast wants to first wish you all a Happy Independence Day and secondly, but most importantly, please be safe out there today!!
Love & light, Fam!
This week’s episode covers a lot of different topics under one huge and super important umbrella, mentorship.
No one has gotten to where they are in life, or achieved the level of success that they have alone. There is always someone there helping them along the way as a trusted confidant, mentor and tutor.
This is supremely important for those of us who are working our way up through some ladder whether its corporate, small business, non profit or whatever. Throughout your journey, you will encounter a ton of people who possess skill sets and expertise that will serve you in your journey.
This presents the opportunity for them to become ingrained into your success story, and you into theirs.
This week is all about making the difference in someone’s life. This is not always a monetary factor. Most times, it has nothing to do with money at all. Taking someone under your wing and teaching them what you know is equally (if not more) impactful and beneficial.
I encourage each of the readers and listeners to reach out to someone whom they feel has potential to be something great, someone you believe in. Reach out ask them how you can assist them. Reach out and let them know that you see them, offer words of encouragement and see where that goes.
You could be in the beginning stages of building a lucrative and lifelong partnership with someone by simply reaching out and sparking a conversation.
Love & light, Fam!
Ahhh yes! It’s another #tbt. Of course, as your scroll down your social media, you are treated to a trip down memory lane. Today is like universal reflection day!
We have all these cues around us including TimeHop and Facebook memories to take us on these little journeys each week. Let’s just take it a bit further, why don’t we?
Today, I’m encouraging you – EMPOWERING you – to mentally go there. Reach back into you memories to a time when you were truly happy. Feel that joy again. What were you doing? Who were you around? How did you find that level of happiness? How did it truly feel and how did it shape and mold who you have become?
On the flip side of that, reflect back to a time where you weren’t so happy. Maybe a painful time in your life. Feel that pain. What did it take for you to get through it? Who was around you when you came through to the other side? How has that experience shaped and molded who you have become?
See what I did there? Sometimes it’s important to not only acknowledge those positive character building experiences but also the painful ones as well. But we are NOT staying there, in that space. We are NOT allowing that experience to consume us and force us back into the negative head space or those bad habits.
We can simply revisit its lessons and the growth that we have experienced since and simply celebrate that.
#tbt isn’t always about how cute our kids were when they were babies or how much weight we’ve gained since high school. It’s also about celebrating leaving that toxic relationship, becoming grounded in your spiritual walk, launching your business and all sorts of cool and exciting things like that!
Celebrating growth and looking forward on your potential is amazing and it’s a great way to not only lift others but to truly lift yourself.
Love & Light, Fam.

Ok so, we are totally living in a fast paced society. I get it. We like everything to be brief and straight to the point and definitely instantaneous.
I’m certain that this is why there is such a high rate for anxiety. We are all in react and anticipatory mode. No one is relaxing and no one is going with the flow anymore.
One cure for that is journaling. Journaling is a great way to get all of your thoughts down, consolidate them in one place and use as a point of reference. Its also a great way to document events in your life.
Most of all, journaling is an awesome outlet and stress reliever. But seriously, who has time for all that?
When I discovered bullet journaling, it literally changed my life. It is part of the reason why I started this podcast in the first place. Yea, that kind of life changing.
Bullet journaling is a customizable system of organizing tasks, lists and duties. It seemed pretty formidable for me at first, because I was used to a more prose style of writing, but once I began utilizing this method, it was much quicker and it assisted me in staying organized.
Pinterest (even though I don’t mention them as often as I should) has a TON of great references, templates and prompts to get you started.
It also helped me get to know myself. I used a daily prompt and allowed myself 10 minutes a day to write on that subject. It truly helped me to dig deep every day and pull some of the best work out of this rusty old brain of mine.
So, today, on Write it Out Wednesday, I encourage you to check out the links up above and get started with your bullet journal, TODAY!!
Love & Light, Fam!
I have a special place in my heart for those “I hate Mondays” people. I am that person in the office who’s all “HAPPY MONDAY” and painfully cheerful for no reason on a Monday morning. It’s quite hilarious on my end, but not so much for the people who are annoyed by this behavior.
Sorry, not sorry.
This week on the She Lifts Podcast we are talking about just that, the week. I had a very interesting conversation with my son regarding the days of the week where he stated,
“The days of the week LOVE you!”
I was so blown away by the myriad of thoughts that rushed through my mind as we were having this conversation, that I had no other choice but to throw them all together into an episode.
Trust me, I am not trying to turn all of you “Non Monday” people into Monday people and definitely not trying to convert all the “Non Morning” people into Morning people because I haven’t even figured out how to make that work for myself, yet. This episode just offers a different perspective on the days of the week and how they love you and ways in which you can love them back.
Now back to you “Non Morning” folks out there, there is hope! I also highlighted a book that I recently read by Hal Elrod entitled “The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life…(Before 8AM). This book is chock full of amazing tips, tools and secrets to transforming your life before the sun even comes up! It is a great and easy read, I would even call it a page turner.
All in all, this week thing is something we will be stuck with for the rest of our lives. We shouldn’t go to bed on Sunday night dreading waking up on a Monday morning, we should be ON FIRE for the next morning to come and embracing every single moment of each and every day.
Thanks for putting your ears on it!
Love and Light, Fam!
“God places the best things in life on the other side of your maximum fear.”
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Will Smith spoke candidly about his experience in skydiving that he shared with his sons.
What struck me most about that interview was how he interpreted fear. He simply asks, what do you need that fear for?
Sometimes, fear can help us identify when something is not right, or not right for us. However, most times, fear can really hinder us from reaching out greatness or having a noteworthy life experience.
Why should you let fear stop you? YOU SHOULDN’T!! Make that decision today to not allow fear to stand in the way of what you truly deserve.
Love and Light, FAM!!
