The Worth Shop Experience was everything and more. When I arrived I felt like true royalty. The emerald green and gold decor set it off. The decor was breathtaking and exude elegance fit for queens. Upon arrival, each attendee received a worksheet, diamond gold pen, and adorable trinkets in our gold goodie bag. One in particular the “You’re Worth It” key tag.
The southern brunch items were delicious. The brunch included shrimp & grits, red velvet waffles, chicken, skillet potatoes, mimosas and more. Can you guys believe that this was an FREE event. Yes, I said it FREE. We were able to leave with so much more than just food in our tummies but words of wisdom, inspiration and genuine try life savor tips. If you missed out be sure to follow The Worth Shop on Instagram for future events. This is a great group for women who look to have accountability partners and are looking for a group that can inspire to be your true self.
A special shout out the keynote speakers! Literally they spoke to my soul! It truly amazes me how we all have experienced similar things in life.
It was very rewarding to watch my mentor , LeStar, walk in her purpose. Super proud of another accomplishment of hers.
We left with an assignment. Le’Star asked each attendee to locate a picture of themselves at a younger age. She asked all attendees to address the following question:
- What did you want to be at this age?
- What were some things people projected on yourself by others that you had to unravel?
- How was your environment? Did your environment change what you believed about yourself?
- Are you still holding on to something that has stopped you from progressing in life?
- What do you need to forgive?
Here is the photo(s) I selected for this particular assignment:
At this age, I believe I was 9 or 10 in the picture, I wanted to a singer/dance choreographer. My dream job was to do something in the music industry where I would be seen and heard. I remember this age so well as I wrote a book about my career and going on tour. I even performed musical productions at my grandmothers home or in her garage with my cousins. At this age, everyone said I had talent. Looking back they only mentioned my dancing skills and being vibrant very outspoken. Now that I think about it, no one mentioned my singing skills. My environment was truly a happy place for me. My family would always be singing or dancing. We always did things as a big family at my grandmothers. I just remember always having a big smile on my face. I was genuinely happy and carefree. Now that I have grown into this woman I can still say that I smile but I am not as happy as I was as a kid. Looking at this picture reminded me of how I did not care about anyone’s views that had about me. I did what I wanted, wore what I wanted and said what I wanted. Growing up you have to condense your authentic self because of your career that you want. Working in HR I have to present myself in a manner that will not get me pulled aside and questioned or fired. I want to forgive myself for losing myself over the years after this age. I want to forgive myself for caring so much about what my employer or others may think.
Feel free to share your assignment in the comment section.
This assignment really hit home and is much needed. I have a lot to think about regarding my future and my career. Singing is definitely out the window because I can’t sing. Trust me I recorded myself back in 2002 and lets just say I learned quickly I was not born to sing. However, I would like to revive dancing again and possibly a different role within the music industry.
I AM FULL OF POTENTIAL
