Under Construction

Under Construction

It’s Day 14 (reset) of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and though I turned 50 this week, I’m still under construction. This dawned on me as I stood beneath the framing for a new facility being built to house the homeless we serve at my organization’s agency. We’d met for our monthly corporate prayer but were given a tour of the new structure beforehand. Unfinished, it is still an architectural work of art and thing of beauty –– at least to my eye. And I imagine that’s how God –– the Lead Architect and Master Designer –– sees me. Raw, unfinished, rough. But something being built for purpose and beautiful. Still under construction.

When we learned we’d be touring the construction site, I asked if I should deviate from my usual dress and heels. Getting an affirmative gave me the chance to don a jumper I haven’t worn in ages. Little did I know the hard hat would match! All Calvin Klein – TJ Maxx. 

As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose wife, mother, director, leader, author, blogger, life coach, Zumba instructor, and child of The Creator, I’m so thankful He’s still working on me. My great Aunt Birdy used to say, “I not what I want to be. I’m not what I’m going to be. But thank God I’m not what I used to be.” Amen, Sister!

I hope you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic, and realize He’s still working on you, Remember, we’re all still under construction.

Be savvy & chic,

Up well before the crack of dawn this morning to continue with my writing weekend. Feeling blessed to have this peaceful time before church and teaching my faith-based Zumba class. And inspired by the lovely writing space at my petite place.

Pray your day is full of things that feed your soul and that let you pursue your purpose.

As a self-proclaimed fashionista –– well Maxxinista to be more precise ––

This is the type of Pink Collar Savvy & Chic clothing I most want to wear.

May all of us Swans wear it well so that we can rejoice in times to come.

Fitness and Friendship

Fitness and Friendship

It’s Day 6 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project, and like most Saturdays, it was about fitness and friendship. One day early in our relationship, my now Swan Sister, Kibby, invited me to attend Zumba at her athletic club during a lunch break at work. Going on seven years later, we’re still working out. Doing fitness (sometimes food) and fitness.

While we’ve had amazing instructors come and go, Marvelous Marina is still with us and has become not only one of my Zumba mentors, but a dear friend. Dancing with her, learning from her and supporting one another –– she’s attended both book fairs for my debut novel, Seasons of Her Soul, and I sub for her and serve as wingman whenever needed in class. This morning, she gave a shout out for my upcoming birthday on Monday. She’s filling in for another Zumba sis and invited the class to join us that evening to celebrate my 50th. I’m also looking forward to hanging out with her and another friend afterwards.

Me, Pink Collar Coach and Mentor/Friend, Marina.                   A little belly dancing added a twist to this class – literally!  I’m in my Calvin Klein Performance & New Balance shoes.           Marina could be a Zumba Wear model. Wears it well! 

For me, Zumba provides so much more than a chance to exercise. It’s a chance to appreciate music, express myself through dance and connect with The One who made it all. Through fitness, I experience friendship AKA fellowship with beautiful, strong, amazing women.

I hope you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and either engage in exercise you’ve neglected or find your fit –– be it dance or another form. There’s a good chance you may find friendship, too.

Be savvy & chic,

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Peppa Loveday is a true scaredy cat! So when I got her a gorgeous Shabby Chic pet bed, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that she was afraid to lay in it. One day she did it scared and found the scary can be the very thing that takes you to the next level – of comfort in her case!

For me, I’m getting up early to fit in my daily positivity post without obsessing over my ability to sustain it. I know if God puts the purpose in my heart, He will provide… Now I feel empowered that my faith is stronger than my fear.

What one thing will you do today –– in your personal and/or professional life –– that scares you?

Be savvy & chic,
