Happy New Year! It’s been such a long time. I’ve missed you readers and pray you’re staying healthy, safe and positive during this pandemic…
In my half decade of life, I’ve discovered many of life’s difficulties begin with the letter d. Based on more than my share of experience in conjunction with formal and informal education and “ds development”, I could earn an advanced degree in the subject! In fact, many of the ds will serve as topics of study I’ll delve into a little deeper as I begin a Doctorate of Strategic Leadership with a concentration in Leadership Coaching next week…Dating that ends in disaster, dysfunction and most things in between, can be grouped under a d word. My research alone has generated a list of more than a hundred!
And the year 2020 introduced us to a doozie in the form of the Coronavirus disease along with the devastation and death its wreaked. Like so many, COVID-19 has impacted my employment and had me leading the women’s shelter where I’m the director remotely since April. A few residents and all my staff tested positive at one point. One was hospitalized, another lost her husband to COVID and recently a staff member’s infant grandchild passed away from the deadly disease. As devastating as these deaths have been, God’s grace and strength at work in the lives of His beloved daughters has been on miraculous display –– a good D.
Like these amazing women, as the Pink Collar Coach, blogging about the ds on my Pink Collar Savvy & Chic site, is a way for me to deal with them professionally and personally. I’ve been blessed to be able to minimize my barriers (ds) and maximize beauty and my best life. So, how can other women, Pink Collar Savvy & Chic Swans, whose professional and personal lives are full of ds –– in the workplace and on the home-front –– do the same? After a year-long hiatus from blogging, beginning this week, I’ll embark on this year’s Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project. The Pink Collar Savvy & Chic Godly Girls’ Guide to The Swan Experience, A Devotional for Dealing with Life’s ds –– difficulties –– on the Daily. Posts from this blog will focus on Discovering Your Design and Destiny as God’s Daughter, which leads to total transformation. The goal is to blog them into a book that will coach, encourage and inspire women to minimize barriers and maximize beauty and best lives. All to His glory.
As I pursue a doctorate, revamp the blog, and prep to publish Hold on Her Heart, the sequel to my debut novel, Seasons of Her Soul, a fictionalized account of a young woman’s journey out of domestic violence and into her her best life, Book 1 in the Lee’s Legacy series is being offered at a discount price. I hope you’ll check it out and then read Book Two, coming soon!

Looking forward to reconnecting and pray Pink Collar Savvy & Chic will be a blessing as you deal with the ds the pandemic and life presents on the daily!
