@MommyNoire Feature 10 Moms Who Rock! Including Lucinda Cross

LucindaPostArt-1-643x430By @Konnectshun “Moms, we work hard everyday. We invest in our children. We hold down our home – think breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a few snacks in between. And let’s not forget the daily cleaning duties, bills, and laundry. If married, we nurture our significant others, and if single, we try to go above and beyond to nurture ourselves. All across the board our role as a mother is an important one, and truly, it’s a role that is really built for the strongest. Celebrating the essence of motherhood, Kay Hudson and Kweli Wright, the editors at Mommynoire praise the following 10 Moms Who Rock, because of their traction in the media and blogging world. These women are a beautiful blend of power and influence. They parent and they are professionals at their craft.

The Bigger The Vision, The Bigger The Distractions

I want you to take a look at your life and see who or what needs a 72-hour eviction notice. CWP_AVBP-1732Start drafting up your notices this week. We cannot move in action if we allow squatters to take up valuable space.

We are women on the move. Women in action. Women of power. Women who are mothers of this earth. We have to be careful who we allow to stay and occupy space in our home, our minds, our businesses, our relationships, and our life in general. We are growing and need to have room for abundance and prosperity.

Ask yourself, How much longer am I going to allow people, things and past situations to take up space in my life? If you have BIG dreams and aspirations and you know you have a destiny to fulfill, you must begin within.

Who or What do you need to give a 72-hour notice to? Could it be you, getting out of your own way? Is it your friends, your family, your spouse, your job? Think about it and decide. You no longer have room for squatters. Join us for the next Activate Your Vision Mastermind to help you stay focused and accountable. Session starts March, 2nd.

Unpacking 3 Suitcases of Pain

suitcases

As I prepare mentally, emotionally and spiritually for my very first Activate Conference, I realize that it is very important for me to unpack and unload in order to deliver my best.

Today I will attempt to unpack three cases of pain. For months I walked past these suitcases for they are a constant reminder that my Mother has made her transition. The pain simply overwhelmed me. Truth be told,  I’ve sat up many nights staring at them trying to find the inner strength to unpack them however grief and pain consumed me and I left it for another day.

My Mother’s  transition gifted me with tons of love, loads of memories and three cases of pain. Unpacking these suitcases will be one of the hardest things I have ever done but necessary for my growth.

How many times do we avoid the process because of the pain that may surface or re-surface? As I take the uncomfortable action steps to unpack these suitcases of pain today, my wish is that you do the same.   Take the pain that you have locked in the corner for months or even years, and address it.  Your pain may be the death of a relationship, job, or thoughts that no longer serve your highest interest.

We need you to show up at the Activate Conference without painful baggage and hidden agendas.

Give yourself permission to heal. I have 3 cases of pain and it may take me all day, it may take me another week, but I am determined to unpack and release this part of my process before I greet you on September 20th at the Activate Conference. Let the healing begin one case at a time.

Let the healing begin one case at a time. Today I want you to unpack…

Unpack the suitcase of love and encourage others to do the same

Unpack your strength so that you can knock down walls that keep you from being the person God has called you to be.

Unpack your vision so you can see yourself and the world through God’s eyes

Unpack the process in every situation and be grateful for the lessons behind each one.

Unpack your joy from head to toe, inside and out

Unpack your pride and be willing to ask for help

Unpack healing to help your body and mind be stronger and clear each day

Unpack your song and dance to the beat of the drums and not the drama

Unpack your truth so that faith can take you to amazing places

If this has inspired you to unpack, share this post with your circle of sisters! Hope to see you in September at the Activate Conference http://www.activateconference.com .

Miss you mommy…
