Empowering & Transforming Lives– Vision On A Mission!
Friends, this weekend with much anticipation, I kicked off the Ashes to Beauty Tour in Atlanta, GA at Ray’s in the City, Atlanta’s Top Quintessential Downtown Restaurant! The event was a HUGE success! #RaysInTheCityRocks
Friends, the week before the event I traveled to Atlanta to meet with Mr. Mike Ross at Ray’s In The City and he provided the setup and expectations for how the evening would flow. The setup was superior, the food tasted spectacular and the service impeccable. It was a perfect evening, and the smooth execution of the plan alone would have been enough to consider the event a major success.
The smooth execution of the plan was not the only thing that made this event a success. The room was nearly filled to capacity, but still that was not the success factor either. The week before the event while visiting in the city of Atlanta, GA, I took the opportunity to connect with people in the street. That’s right fiends, I walked the streets and I connected with strangers in the streets of ATL and guess what, a week later these strangers were sitting in the room at the Ashes to Beauty Tour kick-off as guests! #PowerToConnect
I promised the guests 2 Life-Transforming hours of intimate conversation with Certified Professional Transformation Coach, Sharon D.Meadows, and that’s what I delivered. Some of the guests experienced breakthrough moments as they “re-lived” their own struggles in life that resonated to the obstacles that I openly shared that I have overcome.
Friends, I removed my mask with my perfectly even-toned mineralized skin finish and I showed my “true” colors…you know, what’s beneath the MAC makeup. You see I don’t look like what I have been through. On the surface I am like a newly purchased home, the outside looks great, but the inside….there is work happening to complete it.
I shared my struggles as a child, being physically abandoned by a father that didn’t acknowledge me after my mother divorced him. And emotionally abandoned by a mother struggling with her own issues of depression. I grew up feeling like I was on my own, left to fin for myself, emotionally and even sometimes physically.
After putting myself through college and graduating, I secured a six figure salary, purchased a beautiful home and a Mercedes-Benz….all the things I thought would make me happy, I soon realized I still wasn’t happy. I was empty and lonely, so I decided to find someone to share my life with thinking that would make me happy.
After 7 years of emotional, verbal and mental abuse I found the courage to “escape” from a marriage that made me even more lonely and empty than before I married. After enduring the wrath of the “divorce” by my ex-husband, 9 months later my first born daughter passed away from a severe fatal asthma attack. The cause? Anxiety was a major contributing factor, as anxiety exacerbates asthma….you would have thought my ex-husband would have lessened his wrath after such a devastating loss. On the contrary, my friends, he came after me even more after the loss of our daughter, relentless in his efforts to break me and bring me down…NOTHING and I repeat NOTHING was going to stop him….not even a devastating loss.
As I fought to get away from the wrath of my ex-husband, I was also fighting against all odds in the workplace to escape the “wrath” of an insecure BOSS in the work environment. After spending more than 6 years of being loyal and committed to the same company I finally found the courage to bid farewell to Invesco. I departed gracefully and in peace. That was nearly 2 years ago and friends I am here to tell you, I don’t look like what I been through. I am passionate and committed to helping others to become empowered through my story to transform their lives to move from the Ashes to Beauty! #AshesToBeautyTour
