The YEAR of SHE

"What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have." -Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey delivered an electrifying speech at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement proclaiming that there is a "new day on the horizon" for women all over the world.  Annotated speech - The Washington Post via YouTube.

What does your SHE, your TRUTH look like? We want to know.

Feeling EMPTY?

It is undeniable that women are constantly bombarded with unrealistic images that supposedly personify health and happiness.  So many women try so hard for this unattainable goal that will, in the long run, leave them feeling empty.  We try the latest 100-calorie snack packs, or worse, skip eating when our body needs fuel.  On the flip side, we may decide to give it up all together, and give in to all the unhealthy and convenient food temptations that are thrown our way; these foods don’t give us energy, will make you enemies with your scale, and let’s be honest, they are not found on the food pyramid.  

It’s time to feel WHOLE again by eating whole foods.  Whole food is food that comes from the ground and not made in a laboratory.   To get started, visit local farmers markets, research recipes using real food, and spend some time in the kitchen.  You may discover a new hobby.  Your body can do amazing things when given the right fuel.  Taking these steps toward a whole foods diet will not only make you healthy, but it will also gift you with a new glow.  

One small change + giving up one bad habit = 2x the confidence

Painting Energy

"A lot of artists work for political reasons or to make a statement. That's not me," she says. "I want to bring joy and life into peoples homes. After someone's hard day, I want my art on their wall to radiate positive energy." 

While the rest of us were exploring bathrooms in some random restaurant, Kiah's parents took pit-stops at museums.  Color palettes reflect her personality and life experiences feed her inspiration.  Her unique creative process includes sketch it * study it * flip it * and wait for the excitement to hit.  Then she can complete the painting.  Kiah currently shows at Art & Light Gallery at the Village in the West End in Greenville, South Carolina.
