Seek what you know you deserve

How many of us say we have faith but then turn around doubt everything and then question how what we ask for is supposed to happen?

Last December I went to a networking without realizing that Rosie Rivera would be a guest speaker. I had only learned who she was the week prior because I read Jenni Rivera’s book. If you have not read Unbreakable, I highly recommend it. I remember after reading her story I was inspired and I knew without meeting her she was an amazing person.

Rosie is such a strong, passionate woman and her contribution to want to make this world a better place is phenomenal. If I could pick the perfect mentor, it would be her. Everything her life encompasses is exactly how I imagine my life to be. She is a mother, a business woman, a God fearing woman, a sexual abuse victor, and is now using that to give motivation to other voiceless victims. Everything she said that night resonated with me and I felt a deep connection to her. I briefly shared with her my vision and asked for some words of advice. What she told me really touched my heart, she told me to share my story with as many people as possible and not give up because not everyone has the same vision and the right people will follow.

Fast forward nine months, I am meeting Rosie Rivera at a Starbucks to share with her MY story and vision for Bold Ascension. Unbelievable right? Well she was very much real…this was all possible because I did not allow fear to stop me from asking her for a meeting. See for so long I told myself stories; she’s too busy, what if she doesn't understand my vision, I’m not important enough, my business is not launched. I can go on and on with the self-sabotage talk I was having with myself. Instead, I allowed faith to be my guide because I know that what I am creating is much bigger than myself. I am powerful, my story does matter and I remembered what she said about sharing my story with as many people as possible and the right people will follow.

Friends, we all say we want certain things but then allow fear to hold us back. Let go of the fear and ask for what you want, don’t be afraid to seek what you know you deserve.

The best is yet to come.

Ariana and I first met at a women’s conference and from the beginning, I knew that she and I would become friends We eventually began to met up to share our stories. As we sat and talked over dinner, Ariana was in tears as I shared my daughter's story with her. She said that I was an amazing and strong mother for standing by my daughter after I found out her father had sexually abused her.
