Though I’ve lost track of the Day #, The Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project it’s still in effect, including preparing for the annual Zumba for the Cure, AKA Party in Pink! The event is held to promote awareness and raise support to fight breast cancer. That being the case, when my marvelous mentor, Marina, suggested we shoot a video of the song, “Here to Stay”, I’m leading at this Friday night’s event –– Marina has me do a few routines in her Saturday class –– our Weekend Zumba Warriors enthusiastically jumped in with a fighting spirit – literally!
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose breast cancer scare survivor –– I had a huge tumor the doctors thought was stage four removed in 2014 –– I hope you enjoyed the video (Thanks Marina and everyone who joined in). These women are fierce! So is every woman who has ever faced this particular disease –– a huge D or challenge! Every year God uses all in attendance and especially the women who are actively fighting cancer, yet dance the whole two hours, to inspire me. Often we close with “This is My Fight Song”…So I hope you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and will support Breast Cancer Awareness events like this one during the month of October, as well as having a mamogram and/or encouraging others to do so…More posts about this coming as we continue preparing for our Party in Pink!

Made the most of a mother-daughter moment making one of my son’s favorite dinners –– meatloaf–– with my growing-meup girl! What a blessing to talk as we shopped, prepped and cooked. And the spontaneous hug at the grocery store? Priceless! This is a shot of her in the homecoming dress we shopped for together a few weeks ago. Memories to last a lifetime!
If the road you’re facing a D –– a personal barrier or challenge that negatively impacts you professionally –– like a difficult, bumpy road, take heart! God can make it lead to a beautiful destination and your best life!
Today, a lifetime of heartache, hurts and hard work yielded a harvest in the form of a bounteous bounty/life-changing opportunity that will enable me to live my purpose and best life. Will share more soon, but for now I’ll simply say Thank you, Lord! My cup truly runneth over!
Spent this morning providing some career coaching by revising a resume. Love living my purpose by encouraging and supporting others to live their best personal and professional lives!
If you’re a regular reader, you’re aware my blogging has been sporadic, bordering on non-existent for the last few months. I say that because I’m no longer aware what day of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project it’s supposed to be! While it’s true I’ve been dealing with some major Ds –– personal challenges that negatively impact professional performance –– (i.e. diagnosis, dysfunctional relationships, etc.). I’ve also been blessed to see God’s hand working in them all. For my good and His glory. One of the ways this is most apparent is the fact that I’m now renting a Tiny House for personal and professional use. Dream. Come. True. That being the case, I’ve been faced with a positive D –– decorating! Working diligently both day and night (with the help of my supportive hubby) to make the space into what I want it to be, it occurred to me how concerned I am about the interior of my Tiny Home. Then this morning, as I prayed following my devotion, it struck me that I need to be even more concerned about the interior of my heart. What an impactful lesson from my Tiny House decorating process!
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose blogger, I’m so excited to begin sharing the things I’ve done to make my Tiny House beautiful, comfortable and functional. I’ve gone to little expense but loads of effort to make it just right and oh so Shabby Chic! But when I’m honest with myself as a believer, I have to ask, Does sharing my faith hold as much appeal? Am I as enthusiastic about surrounding self to God’s renovation process as I am a physical space to my designs? And my answer is Not nearly. Thankfully, He called me out today to reign me back in. So starting right now, I surrender my heart to the same interior refresh as I have this new home/office. What a life changing experience from my Tiny House decorating process!
How about you? How willing are you to let God make you lovely on the inside? Will you be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and let Him create a pure heart and right spirit in you, too? (Psalm 51:10 NIV).
