I hope your short week for most and regular for some is going well! I was talking with some girlfriends about the things in life I want to change about my current status in life in many areas of my life. And as we were talking I was thinking about the “WHY” I wanted change in different areas and they were talking about their “WHYs”.
In this conversation I realized how easy it is to seek change based on the perception of others and the vibes you get from others and others insecurities that can creep up under the radar like “YOU” have them when you don’t!
It happens so easily but what I shared with them and what I want to share with you is DON’T change because you think that is what other’s want you to do. DON’T change the interaction between yourself and other individuals UNLESS it will be a blessing to your life and those you love!
We can’t afford to live our lives based on other people’s insecurities. We most stand confidently in our own awesomeness. How often do we change how we look to satisfy someone else’s perception of us? Now, of the bat some of you will be like NOPE not ME! But really think about other situations where you began to change when really it was not benefiting you but other people….Just think.
Hope or being hopeful is a state of being and believing.
I live in a mindset of being hopeful! It keeps me expecting the best our of life and it keeps me motivated to stay the course for my goals and dreams.
I hopeful that each day will be better than before.
I am hopeful that my faith in God will sustain me even when I become doubtful and fearful.
I am hopeful that the people I surround myself with have my best interest at heart.
I am hopeful that the best is yet to come.
I encourage you to say out loud what you are hopeful for and live with an intentional heart.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my chat about Building Bridges Over Barriers today. Unfortunately Facebook live was not working for me so you can only catch it on Periscope.
For those who are new my page, my name is Kimberly Walker and I am the CEO & Founder of Curves Beautifully Empowered. My passion and purpose is to inspire and empower people to soar into their personal awesomeness!!!! You can always find me here but also on Periscope: kimberlyjwalker, Facebook: /kimjwalker and Instagram: Kimberlywalkercbe!
So here are a few thoughts I have about creating bridges in life so you can be successful in whatever it is in life that you want to pursue.
BUILDING BRIDGES OVER BARRIERS
1. Have the right mindset! In other words, get yo mind right!!! Tell yourself “I will conquer this barrier!” everyday and any moment you feel fear and doubt creeping over your shoulder. Also make sure that you are thinking outside of the box! Yes as a matter of fact don’t stay in the box, think outside of it, go around it and flip that mofo OVER! You don’t have time to be boxed in and limited. The biggest barrier starts with your mindset.
2. Do the work! Research it! Find out who has achieved what you desire in your life. Seek out “think partners” who will stretch you beyond what you can see. Seek out mentors! And not the mentors who just want to say that they have mentees. Find a mentor who will help hold your hand at times and share resources. And when you find these folks, make sure you align yourself with them. That means also investing in yourself and using those coins to pay for their time. Most successful folks love to share but time is also money and there has to be a balance so be ready to invest in what you seek. But most importantly build authentic relationships in life will make you or break you.
3. Don’t stop until you get your yes. NO is temporary! No is a line that you can step over to get your yes!. NO for me equals New Options! It just an opportunity for me to figure out what else is other there. To figure out, what is missing. That is why I use vision boards to keep me focused on my goals and no matter what walls or barriers pop up I am still focused with time lines and deadlines.
Until next Friday, God Bless!!!
To me being a respectful human being means that I value myself and others. And because I do I have boundaries and take care in the way I speak and how I behave in public and behind closed doors.
Bottom line when you walk in a respectful nature you take care in how you represent yourself in all manners of life. A respectful human being pays attention to what is going on at the surface and looking to dig deeper.
Superficial is often not being real with oneself, it is not speaking the truth or your truth. It really is not being honest about your feelings and motives in the words you say and the way you behave in your actions!
I feel like this is an epidemic.
So how do you know the difference? How do we stay authentic?
Take your time to get to know people. Why are you rushing it? What will be lost if you set aside time to have some real conversations and get to know people’s heart?
And while you are having these conversations, make sure your ears are open and eyes seeing the reflection of their speech in their actions and interactions.
Your people pleasing ways will always get in your way. I know go ahead and say it! I am bothered and I don’t care what people think. Ummmhmmm many say that but if you are not invited to an event, or the right people didn’t like your post or you’re not the go to person for XY & Z….Can you sit with that?
Can you stand being unliked? Because if you cannot then you are more than likely living a lavishly superficial lifestyle and you lack the truth tellers in your life that will help keep you grounded.
Queens know Queens and Kings know Kings…meaning you know when you meet someone if you are of the same cloth, have the same vibe, of the same spirit AND so you really know when you are not! Which means when you are pressing to force a relationship to happen for whatever benefit you THINK you will get…you might as well be pouring salt into koolaid…it will never be sweet.
In other words, follow favor. You are doing yourself an injustice of trying to fit into where you are not wanted. To force a connection or a door that is not open to you. Listen, you know and they know the right connection is not there and so it will be a fake, false, superficial union that will never serve you well.
When it is all said and done you must look in the mirror and feel good about the person you are…the person you are becoming. We should all strive to become better respectful human beings.

On January 21st, 2017 I will be hosting an amazing women’s empowerment experience! Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience II to be exact! And you know what? The most awesome aspect about taking on this project is the women I meet who give their time to empower and inspire the woman next to them. Last year I found myself in tears just taken aback by the authentic connections I saw being made. Needless to say 2017 will be epic and I can’t wait! I am inspired by each of these ladies!
Now, what is Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience II? It is a platform to encourage women to see, accept, and soar in their personal awesomeness. It is an opportunity for women to change their lives by the taking necessary steps to achieve their goals. This event is for the woman who has it all together but needs to be refueled, and for the woman who is trying to figure it out. The Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience II weekend will provide an opportunity for women to connect with each other, hear powerful stories, and feel inspired to move forward in their personal journey.
Mission: To transform the lives of women by providing empowering and inspiring experiences necessary to living an empowered life.
Vision: To see every woman with curves large and small to take the risks in life necessary to achieve her dream.
I can’t wait to introduce you to the inspirational women who will be joining our luncheon and panel discussions “Empowering Her and Inspiring You” & “Health, Wealth & Curves”, personal development workshops and ending with MIXXEDFIT!

Did you say what? YOU are a ROCK STAR!
I am settling down to enjoy my family, friends and this season with a grateful and thankful heart. I had set out to accomplish several goals for myself in 2015 and guess what? IT HAPPENDED and I simply could not be more excited about the outcome of the year. Now on to 2016 and let me tell you it will be AMAZING!
Now, does that mean I had NO challenges? Not at all, because frankly some of the things I endured were quite painful but I was able to reframe and refocus and not lose sight of what I was working towards and for that I am truly happy.
I recognize that this season is not all jolly for everyone and depending on your loss or past experiences it can be out right painful. I want to encourage you to keep going and find joy in the little things around you regardless of your circumstances, because emotions go away but our decisions have consequences.
I want to leave you with 4 tips for the rest of 2015.
1. Say out loud daily: I AM________________________________________ fill in the blank your personal truth. You are amazing, uniquely made, perfectly imperfect, compassionate, articulate, giving, kind, strong, wise, learning and whatever else comes to mind POSITIVE.
2. Write it down and post some where visible in your home/car/office to remind yourself how great you are in the skin that your in.
3. Do something that puts a smile on your face.
4. Do something nice for someone else. We may not be happy in our present condition but somebody out there is going through something worse.
