Here are some ways to overcome many of those roadblocks and be successful with your 2015 (and beyond) goals!
Can you believe we’re almost a quarter of the way through the year? Yes, believe it or not, we’re there. Let’s be real with each other for a moment, Divas…anyone else hitting any ruts with the goals they set up for 2013? There are some goals that I’m rocking and rolling with and others…well, others …

He's 7 now, but my youngest son has been encouraging and motivating me with his childlike innocence and wisdom from the start. 
 I ran out of gas this morning on the way to work. Yeah. I know. I completely forgot I was supposed to get gas yesterday. It was too late. Too cold. Too dark. And I was too tired Saturday night on my way home.  Completely side-tracked until I got in the car this morning and …

"Relax, relate, release!" - one of my favorite lines from the 90s sitcom A Different World and one that has served me well when dealing with conflict - personally and professionally.

Yes, arguments will occur within our families but learning how to turn those arguments into productive conversations is a skill that everyone can use throughout their lives. First and foremost, arguments should not get physical. …

Speak It! Live It! Be It!
Introduction
Wife, mommy, sister, friend, diva - all these words and more describe the person I am and am constantly growing and striving to better.

Divas With A Purpose began as an outlet and has grown to become so much more to me.  It's become a place to network and connect with other women as we go through this journey of life.

As women, mothers, sisters, friends, divas embracing our similarities and differences - we all should be Driven, Inspiring, Victorious and called to Action in our families and communities.

I invite you all to join the Divas With A Purpose journey - to share and collaborate with one another in hopes of building one another up.
