One of my absolute favorite things to do is spend time with women who are fully living their purpose. These women exude confidence, passion and an indescribable radiance. Yesterday, I had the blessing of spending much of the afternoon and evening with a beautiful Australian woman with all of these qualities. It was a true gift to glean from her wisdom and experience. I’m thrilled to introduce you to Simone Leslie! This statuesque stunning blonde is a mom, wife, author, speaker, minister and master neuro strategist. Her journey is one that I relate to and I know you will to. I could not wait to light a candle and dive into her book this morning! It draws you in with inspiring photography, quotes and easy-to-read short stories that crack open your heart. Plus, her book is complimented with a touching song that is like salve to the soul and speaks to a woman’s worth– appropriately called “Beautiful”.
Simone Leslie was presenting to millions on national television in her early 20’s and friends thought she had the world at her feet, yet behind the confident mask was a broken hearted, suicidal little girl. Her book, It’s OK to be Beautiful – Heavenly whispers to a Broken Heart has touched and healed thousands of lives. Written in a neurological way, this book addresses the root cause of depression and anxiety disorders. Designed to create a shift in the core programming levels of the brain, these short stories and revelations will make you laugh and cry but most of all, allow you to see yourself through the eyes of love and truth, bringing healing and wholeness, setting up the foundation of success.
“Most often the thing that limits us from achieving our dreams and goals is not the lack of knowledge or ability; it’s within our very own brain. The beliefs & neural programs we run off, what we subconsciously believe about life, what we deserve, our worth & core identity. Be it personal or business and professional outcomes, the process for breaking through to our desired outcomes always involves the discovery of limiting neurological pathways. We can then rewire them to create smooth and empowering neural programs that deliver exponential results!” Simone explains.
Occasionally you will read a book that seems to understand who you are and where you are at. It can leave a profound mark on your soul and change your path for good. This book is a raw gem offering transparency and truth taking you on an eventful journey that offers healing, understanding and love, pointing you toward your own profound revelation and change. This book makes the perfect gift for the women in your life who desires to step into their destiny! Get it on Simone’s website or on Amazon.
As we approach Thanksgiving week, I want to thank all of you beauties for taking this journey with me toward becoming ALL you are destined to be.
Thank you for believing in me.
Thank you for believing in yourself.
Thank you for taking the risks to move forward.
Thank you for making the choice to step up and step out.
It causes us so much pain, frustration and even anger. In today’s candid video blog I share a realization that will forever change the way I handle growth spurts and the different phases we go through. Are you resisting the phase you’re in or have you embraced the art of surrender?
Check it out…
Of course, when you open up to receive messages/ hints/nudges – they arrive at precisely the right time. I met with a stunning young women about mentoring and she was telling me about a powerful YouTube video from Oprah’s Master Class. I watched the video tonight and whoa– I had seen it last year and it impacted me then, but the reminder was even more powerful, RIGHT NOW. It goes to show that the concept of surrender is an ongoing practice. Sort of like the concept of forgiveness. It’s something we need to always work on. Although I live my life with God behind the wheel, my “control freak” nature creeps back in from time-to-time creating inner turmoil, resistance and sometimes depression. So….
Many of you fabulous fashionistas are single and I wanted to take a minute to encourage you and remind you of something VERY important- if you truly desire a healthy relationship with your “soulmate”, then you must remember the best matchmaker is God and one of the most important qualities in a man is that he has a strong Faith. Most of the time, it’s us gals who place our Spirituality as a priority because we are more intuitive, nurturing creatures. Who knows- I’m just guestimating that. We all have different Spiritual beliefs and I respect everyone’s Faith. I am only speaking my Truth and sharing my experiences with the hope that it encourages you. I always had the dream of being married (in the back of my head and hidden deep down in my heart), but like many of us- I had been cheated on and my heart smashed to pieces a few times which altered my views on what a healthy relationship was. I dated the gamut of men from broke screenwriters to narcissistic male models to sports fanatics to grown men who acted like a 12 year old to wealthy businessmen with bad drug habits. Then add my “daddy issues” and it seemed like a far-off-impossible dream that I could ever find….. someone I trusted with all of me (the good stuff AND the baggage), genuine love, a partner who had my back, a cheerleader who nurtured my dreams AND a real man who loved God. Was it possible? Is “he” out there?
Ok, I admit it– I was one of those gals who had the ‘lap over’ relationships. You know what I’m talking about, find a new one before you really leave the last one. Shame on me, I know! I didn’t know how to be alone. Before I could allow “the one” to appear in my life, I had to begin a relationship with “The One”- God. I had to allow myself to be alone (I hated that) and start falling in love with me as well. It was like I was dating God. I know that sounds weird, but it’s true. I actually started a list of what I wanted in my “dream man”. I wrote every little detail down and prayed for him. Yes, I started praying for him before I even met him. I had to become content and comfortable with ME! Being single is actually a liberating and beautiful time of growth. For the first time, I actually liked me, my single status and embraced the excruciating growth period. Then, after about two years of this introspection, praying, believing and lots of “Tiff Time”….God brought along my Knight. So yes, to answer my own question….IT IS POSSIBLE! HE IS OUT THERE!
If you have the dream of sharing your life with the “man of your dreams”, TODAY- I recommend writing down every single characteristic you want in him and begin asking God (the ultimate matchmaker) to prepare you both and bring you together at the RIGHT TIME. My wish for all of you– who desire a healthy, loving relationship– is that you are able to experience how truly remarkable it is to feel real love and support from the PERFECT MATCH that God has for you.
