    Success is A Personal Pronoun by February 2015 Blogger-in-Residence-Monica Leak

      Think back to first-grade language arts when you were formally introduced to the parts of speech. There were nouns, verbs, direct objects, adjectives and prepositions and these things called pronouns. Pronouns indicate the person speaking or the person spoken about. Remember the chart with the singular and plural sides and starting on the singular side you had I, You, He, She, It and then on the Plural side we, you, they. These personal pronouns can take the place of nouns or other pronouns. Flashback to Saturday mornings and Schoolhouse rock and maybe the link below will jog your memory. So what’s that got to do with success? For many…

    CUT THE THREADS!

    Hey Brilliance- The seasons are changing and so are WE!!! With the culmination of Fashion Week 2013, (did you know Emerald is Pantone’s color of the year for 2013? FAB!!!!) we at Couture Purpose were reminded of the need to wear the garments designed for us. As more and more people watch reality t.v. we are witnessing individuals deciding who THEY are, is not good enough and wanting to be someone else. Couture Purpose was conceived with the concept—we are EACH given a design to wear (purpose and destiny) and to wear a look alike (imitate others) is a fashion faux pas! THIS DAY we come to REMIND YOU the…

    Creation In Motion…

    Hello Brilliance, Did you know you have been granted the ability to create?   In the spirit of fashion week, I thought it would be great to talk about the gift of “Creation.” With the advent of technology, we have been afforded the ability, to create like never before in history and better than just designing our concepts, we can instantly show the world our creations. But, just like when the models strut down the runways with a chosen designer’s collections adorning them. The designer realizes, there are critics in the audience ready to critic years of work in one hour. Brilliance we all have critics.  The key to dealing…

    Call Your Sisters Forth

    Good Day Brilliance, I hope your space is filled with love, faith, hope, acceptance and purpose. This past weekend I had the honor of reconnecting to my “Genesis.” I define “Genesis” as my beginning, divine connections and the origin of my authentic space. While I was around some powerful women, it was revealed to me how important it is to be connected with women who want and can call you forth. If you surround yourself with women who are vested in you staying confused and stagnated you will more than likely never find your authentic self. One key element to developing your “Genesis” is truth. Those connected in your “Genesis”…
