My latest podcast/blog is UP!



Are You Giving WORDS Too Much Power Over You?

Not too long ago, I decided to stop giving words so much power over me…

I used to get FURIOUS when my brother called me a “chick”. Seriously, I hated it. He could send me into a tailspin. My reply would be: “I am NOT a baby chicken, I am a woman.” He loved how it would get under my skin. I love him. ;)

I wasn’t a fan of being called a “girl” either, but I realized I would call my besties my GIRLfriends while my hubby wasn’t calling his pals “my GUYfriends”. (Let that sink in, Ladies.)

The reality is–> No one really likes being “labeled”, yet we all seek/want/use labels to describe and identify one another. Yep, Reality Bites. (Oh, how I love a good GenX throwback!)

A few weeks ago, during a chat with a friend, this very topic came up. He is a bold, proud black man. Our conversation can be summed up in these words:

Statements like “I don’t see color/gender.” or “We are all one.” are egotistical declarations implying we have to go blind in order to accept each other, our differences are not worthy of speaking to, or worse – they are a negative holding us back. To see and acknowledge an individual’s color/gender doesn’t make you prejudice, it makes you OBSERVANT.

I continue to translate the “labels” people give me as their way of observing how I may be different from those I am standing with in the moment. If I am the only woman on a speaker lineup, the only redhead, the only white woman, the only person in the band who doesn’t play the guitar (darn it, I am working on that!)… well – that is a FACT. If they are mistaken, then I help correct them and make them better. I definitely do my very best NOT to be offended. Being offended is a CHOICE.

For example, it used to really IRK me (honestly, it still does sometimes) when people refer to WOMEN as “GUYS“… Hey, Guys – how’s it going? Now, I work to gently remind others I am NOT a “guy” and (most of the time) they reply with a shocked “I never even thought about the fact that I was calling EVERYONE a “guy”… wow.”

I still have a long way to go, but flipping my perspective on the labels has really helped me make a deeper, more positive impact on my world. I pray this helps you all, as well.

Happy Monday! Here is my latest #MoxieMemo and blog post for you:

- - - - - - - - - - - -
A friend posted a quote the other day that really spoke to me… it was about how we waste too much time trying to get the wrong people to understand us – specifically, those who already have their minds made up or who have no desire to understand us.

*I thought to myself – how much time have my friends and I wasted chasing after people? *

Most of us can relate... Have you ever sought to get others to understand your situations, perspectives, or experiences... and they just wouldn't listen? Even though they already clearly made up their mind, you kept trying to get them to listen?

Now, I would like to suggest it is the time for a change. Let's flip our focus, step into our leadership armor and instead speak life into those we are meant to do life with - right now.

For me, reasons WHY those people are no longer in my life becomes so crystal clear, IN TIME. They usually needed to go to create margin for the new season in front of me where I would blossom and grow... a season I would not have been brave enough to step into on my own and certainly would not have if they remained in my circle or the situation we went thru did not occur.

As leaders in our communities, workplaces, and homes – let us shine a BOLD LIGHT. Let’s embrace the spirit of inspiring others to reach their potential, supporting them in times of trouble, reflecting and praying over counsel we receive, and always, always listening intently to our beloveds versus shaming them into submission, silence, or seclusion.
{Like this? There is a visual you can pin in the post:}

Friend, you and I have heard this saying – and know it is true: “What you focus on flourishes.”

We also know when people tell us who they are, we need to believe them.

When they show us how they treat people, we need to understand that is how WE will also be treated.

When their pattern is they: seek to understand, are slow to anger, and work through the tough situations – expect this is what you will experience during the trials.

When their pattern is to cut people out of their lives instead of seeking to understand – expect this will happen to you.

If someone doesn’t have a desire to listen or understand, do your best to inform them, but don’t become fixated or force it.

Instead, whether you have been wronged or have wronged – lead forward:

1. Decide not to give up or lose faith in your values or vision.
2. Humble yourself. Be real and ask yourself – what was my part in this? What is MY lesson?
3. Submit to the Spirit for guidance.
4. LISTEN. Ask questions, seek clarity, find a resolution.
5. Be teachable. Please, always embrace the gift of learning and growing!
6. Let God do a work in you.
7. Lead others to do the same. Don’t let your lesson lay dormant and unused.
8. Bless others along the way.
9. Don’t judge others.
10. LOVE and forgive others.
11. Live your BEST LIFE out loud – with joy, dignity, and passion.

Along the way, be sure to intentionally choose your thoughts, words, actions, and connections… and do it WISELY.

In case you need a gentle reminder:

You are fully equipped
for YOUR purpose.
Now is the time.
Trust God & GO.
You’ve got this.

When we try to figure it out ALL ON OUR OWN, we stall, we struggle, we get discouraged.

When we are STUCK, it is usually because we are trying to fulfill someone else’s purpose.

Take time today to look at what isn’t growing and ask yourself WHY.

I bet you already know the answers…

Now, let go of it. It will feel sooooo good.
