Alicia Keys. I admire the depth and soulfulness of her music, how she channels pain into positive energy. To me, she is an example of vulnerability and not hiding who you truly are. She encourages me to be comfortable in my own skin and to focus on inner beauty.

Rae Geoffrey What do you preserve?
What have you been saying ‘no’ to that it’s just time that you start saying ‘yes’ to?
Allow your walls to break down. Remove what may be there, and see the brilliance inside yourselves and others so that you also can become a brighter, more innovative, more creative changemaker than you already are.
How many times have I walked right past these brilliant experiences and opportunities and blessings just because I did not allow them in?

Your brain responds to what you tell it and the pictures you give it, and if you are telling it disempowering stories and giving it great pictures to go along with that, you’re going to get really poor results.
Check the stories that are going on in your head.
Lean into your emotions.

There are rare times when you reach a decision straight from the heart, without analyzing things, and these are the times when you begin to live your truth.
Finding a job I loved was the difference between truly, truly living my life, or just waiting to die.
If we do want the beloved community…then everyone needs to feel that they belong. Everyone needs to feel that they can thrive.
Self-reflection is one of the biggest smallest things you can do.
