Evolving Takes Werk Podcast | You Have Everything That You Need

On this episode of the Evolving Takes Werk Podcast we’ll discuss that decluttering project from our previous episode and how after clearing the clutter we found what we needed to make a repair in our home. 

We’ll also touch on what to do with the things we find as we declutter. Should we trash it, give it away or keep it? Though only keep it if it sparks joy. 

Also in this episode, I’ll share how Steel Cut Oats by Better Oats became important to my life after suffering from a stoke and my experience during the pandemic of creating an eBook. 

Let’s get to werk!!!!

World Stroke Day

Today is World Stroke Day. I’m grateful for so many things. 

I’m grateful for the fast thinking of two amazing women.

I’m grateful for knowing myself well enough to know that I was in a crisis. 

I’m grateful for an amazing medical staff that took excellent care of me. 

I’m grateful for an amazing village. 

After the diagnosis it was a lot of therapy, a lot of medication, a lot of naps and a lot of prayer. 

I’d encourage you to:

❤️ Know your numbers.

❤️ Get your annual physicals.

❤️ Listen to your body when things seem different than normal.

❤️ Stress less.

❤️ Practice self-care.

Resiliency & Gratitude

I have come to find that my writings tell a story. It is one of resiliency and gratitude. For a while I thought my writings were not connected. I’ve written poetry, fiction, a journal and a non-fiction book. Honestly, I thought “My collection is random and it doesn’t make sense.” Then one day I was on ClubHouse and the moderator, Teresa Hairston, told me that my writings tell the story of my resiliency.

Not only had I never considered that idea, I never would have on my own.

Today I got on Canva and created this video. In days to come I will expound on each book and tell why I wrote it and how I created it.

My writings began with a marriage separation and now I am in a state of gratitude. In all things give thanks.

Doing A New Thing

Yesterday I had to make a huge decision about my website. It was kinda bittersweet as I decided to revamp my site because it was cost effective to do so. In my discussion with customer service I decided to take this site to its default state.

Choosing to become an entrepreneur will make you sit down and count the costs, all of them. lol While I will miss several of the bells and whistles of my last site, I’m confident that this was a good decision for my company.

You can purchase all of my books on Amazon. There’s even a new journal Mi Diario De Gratitud: Ser consciente. Estar en paz. Simplemente ser. I had My Daily Gratitude Journal translated to Spanish.

The change also forced me to revamp and renew the site. It’ll take a while to get everything how I want it. However, the newness, in this case, is definitely needed.

Behold, I am doing a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
    and rivers in the desert.

Checking In By Michelle Williams

I remember sitting in a breakout room at a Women’s conference waiting to see Michelle Williams speak in 2018. I was so excited to see and hear her in person. Listen!!!! I got to that room early to get a seat! 


On that day she didn’t show up and I would later learn the reason why via social media. 
I am so glad that Michelle reached out for help when she needed it the most and that she’s sharing her journey with anxiety and depression to help others. 


We know Michelle from the entertainment industry and social media yet you leave the book knowing a woman who has dealt with many of the struggles that we all have encountered. Her level of keeping real in this book is on 💯. 


Checking In is so honest and so transparent. My favorite chapter? Chapter 4 is full of 💎 💎💎!!! 


I wondered how my life would be different if instead of my hurts and disappointments, I offered others a glass full of joy. I wondered what would happen if instead of walking around with a posture of prove it, I walked around with a posture of peace. ~ Michelle Williams
