Intelligent, Brave, Beautiful, Bold, Spiritual, and Nurturing are just a few of our God given characteristics. Our intelligence enlightens, bravery frees, beauty memorizes, boldness challenges, spirit calms, and nurturing embraces. We have a way of turning a negative situation into a positive outcome. How do we do it you ask? We were born for this!

Womanhood doesn’t come with a playbook. There are no instructions or specialty courses. Most times it’s on the job training. Life trains us in the courses of marriage, motherhood, employees, community volunteers, spiritual leaders, and game changers. Within each of these roles are many additional roles and responsibilities that accompany them. For example is you are a mother, you are also the housekeeper, chef, chauffeur, teacher, personal shopper, wardrobe designer, advocate etc. This one role has full time responsibilities yet we manage to carry out these tasks and those associated with our additional roles.

I AM

Tawana Trammell

We are capable of being submissive and influential, a help meet and entrepreneur, dreamer and creator, a protector and protestor, and the list goes on Everyday we are faced with determining which roles me must play to carry out the task before us. Sometimes it’s challenging, but we manage to get through it.

Women have a way of bringing families and communities together through love, support, and resources. History has shown us that it only takes one woman to bring change to the world. We not only have visions but plans to make them a reality. Women will collaborate, barter, and sacrifice to fulfill their purpose.

Some people view us as aggressive but what the world really sees is passion. We are passionate about what we believe. Women live by internal convictions that causes us to use our voices to speak for those who have been silenced. We pursue excellence in everything our hands touch. We don’t look for personal recognition, we just want the world to be a better place for our children

Woman

We have learned that in order for that to happen we must use our education, skills, finances, vote, businesses, connections, and voice.

God has given us ALL we need to carry out the plans He has for us. So don’t get weary in your well doing You were built for this! The Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future ”

When you feel like giving up, remember the strength that lies within. As of today, you have a 100% success rate related to overcoming challenges. The fact that you are still here means there is more work for you to do. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and before you know it, you would have achieved your goals and inspired others along the way! You got this and your sisters are cheering you on.

Remember,
your super power! SRI MAGAZINE CONTRIBUTING WRITER
you are WOMAN, and that’s

My name is Dr Calenthia Miller I have worked in the healthcare industry for over thirty years. Therefore, I considered myself to be in actual good health However, my life as I once knew it changed on Jan 20th, 2022. My day was no different from any other day that week. I had just finished chatting with the family members on the team and asking what everyone’s plan was for the upcoming weekend. I finished my rounds and headed to my office.

Shortly afterward, one of the family members entered my office and asked if I was all right. She had noticed I had not been my outgoing, bubbly self for a while As a leader, we are responsible for ensuring that everyone is good and everything is running smoothly, never taking the time to think of ourselves.

Living Life After A Stroke

I continued my day as usual, and then suddenly, I became sick and had a headache that I could not shake. I rested my head on my desk, and the next thing I remembered was that I was in the Neurological ICU. I had suffered a stroke while at work. The next few days were a blur, and many of the detail from those days before my admission to the hospital and while inpatient was conveyed to me by my children and co-workers. As a result of the stroke, I lost my ability to talk, walk and care for myself independently.

I underwent extensive rehabilitative therapy for six months, including speech, physical and occupational therapy. The thought of losing my independence was overwhelming and caused me to fall into a deep depression. My ability to let go and allow others to care for me was a new process.I still have cognitive delays; I may forget specific conversation details with colleagues or team members

Dr. Calenthia Miller

So often, we operate under stress, which, in my case, had become my routine. During my sabbatical away from work, I have learned that nothing is more important than the opportunity to live Understanding the importance of family and leaning on my faith to see me through those darkest days is what allowed me to be victorious It also allowed me to return to a place that gave me peace and serenity, which was writing. Writing has allowed me to share my life with the world. But, also, it has gifted me with a platform of A’Lure Publishing, LLC, for others to share their talents. This platform would not have been possible without my Sister in authorship, S.H.E. Publishing, LLC.

What exactly is self-love?

Self-love is healing. It’s a pathway for us to ease into health and wellness In the face of adversity, hardship, and trauma, black women have become accustomed to suppressing their own emotional experience. The doctrine of “praying it away”, “pushing through”, or suffering in silence, persists at the destruction of their overall well-being. Walking wounded while balancing the crown can be exhausting. Let us normalize not being okay, giving ourselves grace, and being vulnerable as we challenge the traditions that do not serve us

The black woman’s burden is deep. Existing in a world that struggles to understand our experience presents challenges that often go unnoticed. Rising to the occasion has been reflective in our history, and is evidenced by how we thrive in the world today. The representation of black women in education, and business have increased despite concentrated efforts keep those doors shut. Our journey has never been pretty, but it is through it we can learn to embrace our scars. You are not only beautiful despite them, you are stunning because of them.

There is great strength in vulnerability. You can only truly begin to know yourself when you fully embrace your emotions. You do not have to be emotionless to be strong.

“Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.”

EmpowerHER

You can make the choice to loosen the armor to tap into the strength that lies beneath it. Your fears, failures, and setbacks do not make you weak. On the contrary, your experiences are the source of a strength that none can challenge Release yourself from the shackles of self-criticism, shame, and unhealthy behaviors. Invest in forming healthy relationships, engage in self-affirming wellness practices, and promote inner peace through mindfulness practices like meditation.

You will not compare yourself to others during this journey, or look for external validation.

The most powerful aspect of going inward is in the cultivation of a deeper understanding of oneself. By doing this, you will foster healing that will encourage the paradigm shift integral to personal growth.

As a black woman and psychotherapist, I seek to create a safe place for black girls and women. A place that acknowledges the macro and microaggressions they encounter daily. A therapeutic environment for black women to process black trauma, while encouraging selfempowerment. The benefits of which can have a positive impact that can be seen for generations to come. The RESILIENT Black Woman is the HEALED Black Woman. Be unapologetic, unashamed, and proud

YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT

Having A Healthy Financial Mindset

The recent pandemic took the world by storm leaving a wrath of not only emotional grief, but also financial instability for most. Sure, the Government pushed out those Economic Impact Relief Payments totaling $814 billion of financial relief to qualifying households; however, here we are nearly one year later, paying close to ten dollars for a dozen eggs. Needless to say, America, we have a problem. Out of the many issues the pandemic created, one profound lesson it should have taught us is to have our finances in order. It is time to take control of our financial health, work on your financial wealth, and get good with money.

Striking a balance between saving and spending can be challenging. However, abiding by both beliefs may prove to be rewarding. It all comes down to choices, decisions, and discipline. Two acronyms that we hear in today’s climate are YOLO (You Only Live Once) and in terms of finances, FIRE (Financially Independent, Retire Ealy). YOLO encourages you to live life to the fullest at every moment, which can be risky. Whereas FIRE encourages you to live within your means and have enough money saved to cover your living expenses without having to work.

Becoming FIRE takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and time The fruits of your labor are usually greater-later here. If you weren’t born into financial wealth, or had a windfall of money fall upon you, chances are, achieving a FIRE lifestyle is a reality that you will most likely benefit from in your later years Both of these phenomena’s have pros and cons. Just remember, too much of a anything can quickly become bad.

So, how does one strike a balance without feeling like they’re sacrificing too much today, to save for tomorrow? There are several strategies available for guidance on financial balance and stability. For the sake of this article, we will touch a tiny tip of the iceberg and talk about a few basic principles It comes down to having a healthy mindset towards money; being honest about your desires; being courageous; and having discipline.

As the adage goes, to know where you’re heading, you need to know where you come from. One of the first steps in forming good money habits is to determine your current attitude towards money and where those attitudes derived from Here are four unhealthy attitudes toward money.

Money Avoider: Believing money is bad and that you do not deserve it. Money can induce fear, anxiety, or disgust. This attitude is more likely carried by people of lower-income, younger and single people.

Money Worshiper: This is the most common money attitude in America. Believing an increase in income or a windfall of money will solve all of your problems. Money worshippers usually carry revolving debt.

Money Status Person: Tying your self-worth to your net worth. People who believe that money is a status symbol are likely to be less educated, young, single, and less wealthy.

Money Vigilante: Individuals who are secretive about their finances and overly cautious about spending money. People with this attitude are often financially secure but may not allow themselves to enjoy the advantages of having money. Extreme cases can lead to money hoarding. These people are better known as, ‘The Miser.’

Your Relationship With Your Personal Style

Tot Jones, Creative LifeStylist

According to Webster’s dictionary the word relationship is defined as the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or the state of being connected.

Let’s unpack your connection and relationship with your personal style. Your style is always speaking, but is it saying what you want it to say?

Every single time you are getting dressed you are preparing to connect not only with yourself but with others! Let’s make sure those connections are intentional and purposeful!

Here’s 4 tips to being in control of your style story and having a strong relationship with your personal style:

Your body is your first accessory!

I want you to start thinking of your body as your first accessory! Start shopping for the CURRENT body that you have and not the body you want. Most people start with clothes first then bodies 2nd. I want people to start to put your body first and think of your body first. Get a vision in your mind of how you would like to present your body then find clothes that match that vision

Make sure your closet has balance.

Make sure your closet has a balance of trendy and classic items to select from.

Foundations set the tone for the look

Proper undergarments are the key to pulling a look off. Some brands I love are Miracle suit for shapewear and Elomi for bras

Timeless Essentials that every woman should have:

A basic fitted t-shirt (Black & White)

A great pump (Leopard, Black, and Metallic)

At least 4 good pairs of jeans (Classic, Ripped, Light Denim, Dark Denim)

Leather Jacket

Pencil Skirts

Updated Power Suit (2023 is the year of the modern suit!)

Bold colored blazers & sweaters

Quality and fashionable flats

Here’s a little homework for you as you embrace total fashion freedom:

What would you like your style to say? Write down 3-5 pieces of clothing that you love. Be sure that it is a mix of trendy and classic items.

What conversation is your style starting?

Remember to fight the urge to look perfect and stay in control of your style story!

Let’s stay connected! I can be found on social media @totallytot3!

As a Creative Life Stylist, Tatiana “Tot” Jones loves helping people by identifying their strengths, motivating them to move past their fears, and walking them through their own unique creative processes. Tot has channeled her genuine love for people into a lifestyle of helping others help themselves Tot brings her joy and wisdom into any situation she encounters As an Influencer, Wardrobe Stylist, Author, and Social Media strategist, Tot understands that image and presentation matter
