Dare to Be Brave Blog Series

Life is a daring adventure, or nothing. ~Helen Keller~

In her book,Daring Greatly BrenĂ© Brown encourages us to be larger than our anxiety, fear and shame so that we can fully embrace the power of vulnerability and transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead. If you are a regular reader of Grow Forward & Flourish, you know that I’m a big fan of BrenĂ© Brown’s work on shame and vulnerability. One of our greatest challenges to embracing vulnerability is our fear of how others will perceive us. This fear is acknowledged and challenged by Theodore Roosevelt in his famous speech, “The Man in the Arena” which reads,
It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcomings; bu…

Love Empowers Us to Rise above Adversity

Love Gives You the Strength to Transform Pain Into Power. ~Namaste~ This article has been inspired by the recent mass murders that took place in Charleston, SC. As a resident of Columbia, SC I’m deeply saddened by the loss of lives that occurred on June, 17, 2015 inside Mother Emanuel Church.  
In life, we have no control over unexpected events that occur in our lives. When faced with setbacks and adversity, it is common for each of us to question “WHY” some event happens and question our ability to rise to the challenge and be strong enough to overcome it. This is natural and to be expected. The wisdom I’ve gained as a result of experiencing several personal adversities has taught me that when we are faced with adversity the best thing I believe we can do is to lean on, and trust in God. I know. This can feel impossible to do. I get it. I’ve experienced many occasions when I turned my back on my faith and started to blame God for the bad happening in my life. Which is all the more reaso…

How to Navigate A New Relationship with Self-Doubt

There is no greater power or connection than to be in harmony with oneself.
~Panache Desai~

Whenever we disconnect from our power and truth, we begin to overcompensate for our insecurities. We start to think and believe that by abdicating our power and truth to someone or some entity we will feel that we are enough. In all of our people pleasing, compromising and striving for more, more and more, we lose sight of who we are. We begin to question ourselves and lose our self-trust. When we lose our self-trust, we doubt ourselves more and disconnect from our unique brand of awesome. When we disconnect from our unique brand of awesome, our potential begins to stagnate.
It is only when we find our courage to relate to self-doubt in a different way are we able to do what it takes in the face of self-doubt, fear and uncertainty to liberate our awesomeness and embrace who we are wholeheartedly.
Why is this important? Because our life is an answer to someone’s prayer. As we find the courage to shi…

You Are the Answer to Someone's Prayer

So often, we underestimate our power to make a difference in the lives of others. This self-doubt rubs us of the wonderful opportunities we have around us to be an answer to someone's prayer.

During the course of our lives, each of us has gained knowledge and wisdom from our experiences that can be shared with others to help reduce their learning curve and improve their decision-making and success in life.

In spite of the expansion of the Internet and the knowledge that we have available at our fingertips when we Google any topic, as humans there is still a need and desire for human touch. 

You and I want to feel and know that people believe we are important, valued and worthy of their sincere concern and care. Regardless of how much we know intellectually, our 
emotional need to feel loved by others will ALWAYS be present within us.

This fact provides each of us with an opportunity to reach out to someone and become an answer to their prayer by demonstrating a sincere concern for thei…
