Thank You! 2018 Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III & Full-Figured Fashion Experience Is Complete!

Thx post
 
WOW so happy, satisfied and content with Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III and the launch of Full-Figured Fashion Experience Runway Show!
 
I believe I was born to inspire and empower. I believe I am to honor and uplift amazing people, especially women. I believe the only approval I need is to see a woman come and be moved, uplifted, inspired and transformed. Not because of me but because of the power of sharing our victories and sorrows that life can inflict upon us. The look when one’s words resonates with the heart of another. When a woman launches her business, writes that book, loses emotional & physical weight and with no apology declares that she is MORE than ENOUGH.
 
I am committed to transforming the lives of women and young girls by providing empowering and inspiring experiences through fashion and confidence-boosting events, vision workshops and sisterhood. My mission, our mission is to empower women and girls to embrace their curves; to see, to accept and soar into their personal awesomeness. She should look and feel good on the inside and out!
 
The vision is CLEAR to see every woman and girl with curves large and small to take the risks in life necessary to experience and achieve her dream.
 
I am so very grateful for an amazing support system. And I thank GOD for each and every one of them! I want to shout out these very amazing people for helping me make Curves Beautifully Empowered Experience III and our first Full-Figured Fashion Experience Runway Show. We are going to celebrate next month but until then know that I appreciate every hour, service, dollar and action you have made on my behalf. Call me when you need me and I will be there.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
— Marianne Williamson
