    “Losing Myself to Find Me”-February 2015 Blogger-in-Residence-Monica Leak

    Hear My Call Lyrics (Verse 2) “I am such a fool How did I get here? Played by all the rules Then they changed I am but a child to your vision Standing in the cold and the rain Lost here in the dark I can’t see my foot to take a step, What is happening? Oh, this hurts so bad. I can hardly breathe. I just want to leave so.” -Jill Scott Being lost is not necessarily desirable. When you set out towards a destination being lost is not in the plan. You took all the right precautions. You prepared yourself the night before and ran through the checklist.…

    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…

    Question???

    Hey Brilliance- How are you? Are you feeling abundance or are you contending with lack. Wherever you CURRENTLY, find YOURSELF. Repeat right now…I AM NOT ALONE AND THE UNIVERSE IS WORKING ON MY BEHALF! For the last several weeks, we have participated in seminars, webinars, and workshops—designed for female entrepreneurs. Couture Purpose is intentionally positioning ourselves to catch the next waves, movements and moments in social entrepreneurship. We keep noticing one thing…WOMEN DO NOT ASK ENOUGH QUESTIONS!!! Sorry for yelling but we want to get your attention ;>). After reviewing some women’s studies research articles, we are gleaning some understanding in respect to why women do not ask questions.

    You Are First…Go Lead!!!

    Hey Brilliance- What have you been up to? Hopefully manifesting a dream, which will positively change the life experience for mankind. Often times we seek mentors, counselors, teachers to assist us along our journeys. But, what happens when the teacher has not or never appeared? What happens when you discover YOU are the teacher? Many of us are being called into “First” position. Even though society has evolved over the years—women are still being told WHAT THEY CAN NOT DO! When you research the deficit of female CEOs, pastors, business owners etc.…there is an overwhelming amount of evidence you Brilliance maybe called to be “First.” In viewing the interview with…

    The Decision

    Brilliance, Shh…let’s center ourselves and drown out the chaotic echoes of our souls. Yes there is an agenda, yes there is a to do list, yes people are counting on you. But, Brilliance you also have a “Decision” to make. We are in the second quarter of 2012 and we have purpose and destiny decisions to make. Within the last seconds, minutes, days, and months we have witnessed loved ones transition from earth to their final places of eternity. We are birth to die, and the times in between are “Life Lessons.” Brilliance you have a decision to make; how much longer will you not live an optimal life? When…

    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”…

    Why is She Married and not ME?

    Brilliance, I hope you are in an embracing space of healing. On the day after Mother’s Day many of you are recovering from the onslaught of “Women Questions.” Why you’re not married? What happened to what’s his name? Did you talk to the man at church? Don’t you want to have kids? In my singleness, I was often asked these questions. As much as I responded with I want to build businesses for my lineages. I am completing grad school or whatever else my soul decided to release, it never satisfied the sabotaging hunger of the one questioning me. The key I was given and I want to bless you…
