Spring is a time for renewal and in this past year, my purpose has been completely renewed. I am so grateful to have found my sweet spot at the intersection of my personal, professional and passionate life. I hope that you will join me on this new journey as I share what fuels my purpose via my new blog and newsletter!
I am so impressed by Little Miss A’s resilience during the pandemic. Her ability to adapt is so admirable, particularly given she is an only child. I know it has not been easy for her, but we’ve managed to keep her social. She is currently starring in an online production of Frozen Kids, taking virtual cheerleading and participating in Girl Scouts. She also has regular virtual playdates with friends and family. Another way that she has adapted is by turning one of her dolls into her “twin” - they play, talk, laugh and fight O_o. Yep, it’s a whole thing. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when she gets sad and wishes for COVID to just go away. But we can all learn a lot from her commitment to always choose the sun and find innovative ways to stay connected.
Last month, I had the pleasure of facilitating an Online Safety for Children and Youth training for CASA/Prince George’s County. They are now gearing up for Spring training. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a CASA or helping us in our mission, please let me know. CASA is a national program, to learn more about the program in your community, visit National CASA.
Also in February, I taught 6 Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) classes for the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services and Joe’s Movement Emporium. This month, I have more classes scheduled with PGDSS, Macedonia Baptist Church, the University of South Carolina and the United Nations. I offer this course for both adults and adults working with youth. If you or someone you know is interested in bringing this course to your company/organization/school/church/group, please reach out to me via email at email@example.com .
As I mentioned in the last newsletter PNK Productions, the company I’ve formed with my childhood besties, is counting down to the launch of our first children’s book. The official launch will be this Summer and in preparation we will be hosting monthly live chats for audiences to get to know us. Our first one was last month and went really well. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to stay in the loop. Click the pic below to RSVP for this month’s chat!
