Listening to That Still, Small Voice
Sometimes making that NEXT BOLD move requires listening to that STILL SMALL voice.” —Julian B. Kiganda
Excerpt from Whose Shoes Are You Wearing?: “That online dating incident was only one example of the many times I have ignored that ‘voice’ which I call the Holy Spirit. Why do we do that? Why do we ignore that alarm bell that goes off when we are about to make a decision that could alter the course of our lives?…

Where Did Self-Love Go Wrong?

Who told You You Were Jerry McGuire? You Don’t Need Anyone to Complete You
“A house that is built by God will be completed.” —Ethiopian Proverb
Where in the world did you ever get the idea that you were incomplete? You may never have had that conscious thought, but if you are always looking outward for internal validation, then this is you. No, you don’t need anyone to complete you.

“No” is a Complete Sentence
No is a Complete Sentence: no explanation, validation or approval necessary. What areas in your life do you need to learn how to just.say.no? What opportunities have you missed out on because you haven’t put your stake in the ground that no, means no?
“Setting personal boundaries is about protecting and caring for yourself. It’s about learning how to say no to others, so you can say yes to YOU.” —Christine K. St.Vil, Moms ‘N Charge

Getting Rid of Excess Baggage
Don’t let unnecessary baggage weigh you down… It’s taken me awhile to learn this lesson, but I think I finally got it: only surround yourself with people who you know have your back no matter what, and uplift, support and add something positive to your life. Life is too short to allow yourself to stay stuck with people who leave you feeling emotionally exhausted and unsettled whenever you’re around them. If you are to ever accomplish what your heart has laid out for you as your passion and purpose…

Turning Obstacles into Opportunity
Many times, we get stuck in the details of the obstacles we face, instead of looking to see what opportunities can arise from them. Once you figure out what you want, you can then start to figure out how to get it. ~Christine St.Vil, Moms ‘N Charge

Finding and Living Your Passion
There is no passion to be found playing small— in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. — Nelson Mandela #quote

Your External Transformation
Wholistic transformation radiates from the inside, out. Take time to love all of you because when you look good, you feel good. – Christine St.Vil, Moms ‘N Charge Be you. Do you. Love you. So often we are focused on what others think we should be, do or feel. Society has managed to dictate what beauty and love should look like. But in actuality: beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and not in the set of our television. Your external transformation starts with you. What makes you feel good, beautiful and radiant?

What’s Culture Got to
Do with it?
“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” #quote “Why is your hair so short?” “Why are you talking funny?” “What is that you’re eating? It looks weird.” “Do you have cars in Africa?” “Did you know Tarzan?” “What are you wearing?”
Do it Afraid
Do it Afraid! #FEAR has two meanings: Forget Everything And Run OR Face Everything And Rise. The choice is yours, and you always have a choice. While my transformational journey is ongoing, it has been all about working through my fears in a way I never had before. Over the last few years I’ve learned that going after, and doing the things that scare me the most, are ultimately the things that have opened doors to my success.
