Here we observe what was once the promising career of Antonio Brown formerly with @steelers@raiders@patriots I do not feel sorry for this self-absorbed narcissistic fool. He possess a HOF Multi Million dollar talent with a 10 cent brain. And now he sends threatening texts to the woman who is brave enough to come forward and name her attacker one Antonio Brown after the Patriots told him do not contact the woman. Not only does he contact her by several threatening texts among them , one where he included a photo of the woman’s children he is (alleged) to have sexually assaulted her. No charges have been filed yet. So ba-bye Antonio Brown what a waste you are literally. #ab#believewomen#wasteoftalent I believe his next uniform if convicted will be all Orange.

They said you weren't strong enough to do this on your own. They said you couldn't do it. They even said you were doing the wrong thing by leaving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shock them all, if you haven't already, by making that empowering decision to stand up for yourself & be the best you there is! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You go girl! You got this!!
Just because most people (women) have a story, doesn’t mean they’re all sharing it. Someone explained to me that my generation and the generation below me have grown up in a time where everything must be shared online if you want it to have existed. There’s no privacy anymore. It’s expected to have a social media presence if you want to feel you have a voice, a talent, opinion, or want change in the world. And being told this made me realize that the world doesn’t need to know my story for me to have gone through it. You can be validated, loved, supported and be a survivor without sharing your story. You’re not a victim because you haven’t come forward, and you certainly aren’t alone. #believesurvivors#endvictimblaming#believewomen
2 Chronicles 20:20
“Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be ESTABLISHED”
This verse is definitely a staple in the uncertainty of life. Whether it’s a new chapter beginning or the confusion and weariness within one, one thing is certain: when we BELIEVE and trust in God, wherever we find ourselves, we will be ESTABLISHED.
Letting this sink in helps us to release the expectations we place on ourselves along with the striving to achieve and succeed. We are simply established when we surrender what we have and where we are to the One who is in control.
“Thank you Jesus that we are firmly established in you and not in the ways of this world. Thank you that you go before us and prepare a way for us to grow and be strengthened by YOU.”

This is one of my most fundamental beliefs.
That, contrary to what we are taught and socialize to do, we cannot shut a door on past trauma.
Trauma is a window. It is a lens through which we can *choose* to see a person, the world or ourselves.
We talk about this and more in my professional training “When Survivors Give Birth”. Space is limited.Registration opens today. Head to the link in my bio for more details!

Can we talk about how important this new Netflix show is? #unbelievable@unbelievable_netflix we must believe women when they say they have been raped, assaulted, sexually harassed! This true story exposes the truth of when men in power positions don’t believe women! It took too female detectives to take a serial rapist case seriously and to listen to the victims! Maybe only woman cops and detectives should handle rape cases! I could go on and on! But instead I urge you to watch this and be educated on the history of how woman are treated when they come forward. #timesup#believewomen#stoppatriarchy#womenempowerment#bestseriesever . I have seen with my own eyes the men’s club rally around a guy and protect them. Let’s change the culture and the world. I have been in horrible situations as a woman!! And I want our culture to change

When I was nine I was molested by a older male neighbor. Two male police officers came to my house. They sat on either side of me on my couch. I remember putting my feet up against the edge of the coffee table to hide them shaking as much as I could. They were nice to me. But it was traumatic. They told my mom to take me to the hospital. My mom had been a victim of repeated incest rape as a child and teen. I asked why they wanted me to go to the hopsital. She screamed at me "To see if he put his penis inside you, DEAR." She was struggling with her own demons this brought up for her. I didn't talk about it anymore. Many other girls on the street had been molested. I told the cops all. They interviewed each girl who were mad at me for telling. Nothing whatsoever happened to him. He grabbed our budding breats and pinched them and literally grabbed our pussys. Nothing happened. My dad stayed friends with him. I told my dad to go fuck himself when I was a bit older, (there were a lot of other issues there besides this). It was satisfying.
I have other stories. This is the one I will share, today.
Your worth is defined by your personality, achievements, successes. NOT by a number on a scale. I love @jameelajamilofficial and the body positive message that she spreads ☺️☺️❤️ LOOK HOW FIERCE SHE ISSSSSS 😍😍🙌🙌🙌🙌

When New York Times investigative reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey published the story of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuse and harassment on October 5, 2017, it was as if a dam broke. “Millions of women around the world told their own stories of mistreatment,” Kantor and Twohey write in their new book, She Said. “Large numbers of men suddenly had to answer for their predatory behavior, a moment of accountability without precedent.” But why then, and why that story? She Said explores those questions while going behind the scenes of Kantor and Twohey’s original investigation and providing fresh reporting with sources that hadn’t yet gone on the record in the last two years. “This book recounts two astounding years in the life of women in the United States and beyond,” they write. “That history belongs to all of us who lived it.” #feministfriday#believewomen#bookstagram

lol @ all at people in the arts community staying so fucking complicit after they have been told of abusers doing Very Shitty Things. just because a guy wears eyeliner or has an ironic moustache doesn’t mean he is an ally to women. these men are dangerous and need to be made accountable - which is fucking hard when other ‘feminists’ and ‘feminist allies’ jump to an abuser’s defence. just because you haven’t had an unfortunate encounter with them doesn’t mean that other people’s negative experiences aren’t valid. take away their accolades, platforms and awards. #believewomen#timesup

And now, let the countdown begin. We’re at 39 weeks!
How can you put into words the gratefulness that invades your soul when you look back, and suddenly you just say: “gosh, everything has been worth it, thank you Jesus”.
When your past meets grace; when my mistakes meet my Creator, and everything changes. It is the right place where a divine atmosphere to conceive a miracle becomes very tangible. .
I’m at peace, I’m loved, I know I can face this, I’m sure He’s walking right with me. His grace shining through me, His beauty reflecting through my flaws, making us strong when we’re weak. That, girlfriend, is what true love looks like.
What are you grateful for today? 🙌🏻🙌🏻
I read that sometimes we complicate our routines so much with this product and that product, but the best routine is a simple and necessary one. Wash, cleanse, hydrate and protect. What do you think?

Today is always difficult for me. 5 years ago my life changed. ⠀
September 20, 2014 I was sexually assaulted by someone I knew. Someone I trusted. Even liked.⠀
It took 7 months to face that person in a university hearing and say to his face, “You hurt me.” And he did. Spiritually, mentally, emotionally, but most of all physically. I’ve always felt like part of me was missing since that day 5 years ago.⠀
Partly my innocence, maybe my pride, but definitely the image of who I thought I was. I said no, but that didn’t stop him from taking it all away. Taking me away.⠀
I still have nightmares, I still hold keys between my fingers while walking to my car at night, and I still am closed off to some of the people who love me most.⠀
But I’ve come a long way in those 5 years. I’ve graduated from college, I fell in love, I got my dream job, I started my own business, I started going to therapy, and I’m still growing as a person.⠀
I’ve learned that the people who are there by your side through the lows are the same people who deserve to be by your side through the highs. ⠀
I’ve learned what it means to look in the mirror and hate every inch of your body because you don’t feel like it belongs to you. And I’m learning now, 5 years later, what it means to tell yourself you love you. Wholeheartedly. Even if it doesn’t always feel like it.⠀
Today still sucks (and it always will.) But I’m surrounding myself with good people, good food (a McDonald’s coke 🙌🏻), and just telling myself it’s okay.⠀
Because it is. And I am. I am okay, strong, and I am still here. ♥️
✳️The language we use matters. When we normalize violence or dismiss it as affectionate behavior, we perpetuate rape culture. ✳️ Things like "he's just hitting, pushing, chasing, teasing you because he likes you" reproduces the idea that love and intimacy should include violence, obsession, and other toxic behavior ✳️ Model the relationships you want your children to engage in later in life. Open honest lines of communication, talking through personal traumas and triggers, and a home that is sex positive and informed about empowered consent can help to mitigate other messages.
NEW ON MY BLOG! I talk about my path of coming to understand my experience as assault and how society influenced my beliefs about what happened to me. It's a really vulnerable piece for me, but I think there's a lot we can gain when we share our stories. Check it out by typing hersafe.space into your browser or by clicking the LINK IN MY BIO!

@prosforlife#RepYourWorkMoment : Twenty years of service with the United States Air Force and a part-time arena security position with, at the time, Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina led to the start of my career in security and executive protection. In 2006, I started my career for Security within arena events and worked my way up the ranks. After countless hours, giving over 100% commitment, possessing a strong work ethic, and constantly putting my best foot forward, day in and day out for hundreds of events each year, led to my 1st #RepYourWorkMoment .
In September 2009, World Wrestling Entertainment (@wwe) invited me to become the FIRST female security for WWE. They witnessed my work ethic for over 3 years. People notice what you do not what you say. Later that month, herstory was made!! What they saw in me was the critical thinking, conflict resolution, teamwork, and my ambition to keep our clients safe. There was no hesitation to react to security threats. After 6 years of giving them my all, it was time to move on to my next #RepYourWorkMoment … Charlotte Hornets Team Security.
Many are walking away right before it breaks. They’re stepping outside of Gods will simply because it doesn’t look the way they thought it would look, or maybe wanted it to look. The warfare has become too much for many, and because of a lack of truly trusting in the Lord to fight the battles, to finish what He started and to continue to teach many the secrets of His Spirit that maybe they don’t understand right now; many are going to miss out on what God spoke over them, promised to bring to pass in their lives and all that was meant to manifest in their lives to further catapult them into deeper levels of destiny. PLEASE beloved don’t let that be you. My heart is heavy, so heavy on this morning, and I know it’s unfortunate, but true nonetheless. For those who are in position, hear what the Spirit is saying, when God says GO you GO, whatever that GO looks like for you. STAND S T I L L. Do N O T walk away. #Believe
Fear is one of the biggest feelings that causes us to get in our own way of our dream.
We can spend time feeling the fear and doing it anyway. We can fight the fear. We can try to convince ourself it isn’t real
The feeling you have of fear is real. It keeps you from doing what you want to do. The feeling comes from the thinking. It is how you see the world
The other side of fear holds incredible surprises.
But as long as we feel it is something we must conquer we are fighting what is really our true nature, how we work
And it works for a time, but still involves a feeling of fighting
The true nature of our mind is that our thoughts flow through like the waves of the ocean. Thoughts of fear included. Unless we take them in and they become our thinking about the thing we want to do.
If just did not mess with them we would get a new thought and move on. It’s our true nature and how life works. I know it is True for everyone. I have seen it for me and see what happens when others see it too
It’s the reason I take people surfing when I coach them locally. Because most people have some fear around it. It is not their greatest fear. But when they realize for themselves that fear is really, no really, just our thinking, they can take that new way of seeing how life works with them into other areas of fear in their life
How we do one thing, we do everything
When we see how the mind works everything shifts
There are ways to do it without surfing. It happens with questions to gain insights, you must experience and see it for yourself to have the shift.
What is your greatest fear ? And what would it feel like for you today if you knew you no longer had to fight it but just let the fearful thoughts flow, and as #womenofimpact says here do not feed the fears.
You do not need to. You are in charge of your part of life. You can dance with all the energy knowing you do not need to fight fears, they are taken care of with the system we were created in. Thank you #women of impact for your great post of this photo. #courage#fearless#fearlesswomen#bravewomen#fear#believewomen#picoftheday#lifecoachforwomen#surferwomen#fearoffailure#movements
Finally have a little chill in the air here in Charleston and it has me thinking about our short lived time in the Boston area. This photo shoot was right before we decided it was time to leave the South Shore, take a leap of faith. Move to Mount Pleasant with no jobs, 3 children and a knowing a handful of friends. Crazy? Maybe. But the reality is it was the best decision we could have made. Within 24 hrs of getting to our month to month rental @bbennett01234 looked at me and echoed what I was thinking - this was the best decision we could have made. Did we have a plan worked out, not at all. About a week later decided to take the real estate course. Despite knowing that only about 10% of realtors make it past the first year, most don’t make enough to support themselves - I knew I wouldn’t let that happen. Sometimes you need to take that leap of faith and believe in yourself! Know anyone considering the life change to find their happy place. Life is to short to walk through life in a place where you aren’t happy and fulfilled! #bossbabemovement#lifechanges#taketheleapoffaith#movetocharleston#charlestonlife#charlestonrealtor
Love is insane, love does heal, but the first rule of love is to love oneself.
