Show Notes

This eipisode is emotion-filled and raw, yet still gifts coaching, cocktails, & conversations.  Yes, I'm angry and disheartened, yet conditioned to see always see a glimmer of hope. May you remind yourself that IT IS OK NOT TO BE OK!  It is ok to sit in the power of your pause, UNAPOLOGETICALLY!  With the violence that's been thrust upon our black boys and men, I am giving you all of me.  As a Black mother raising a Black Young Boy, the murdres, senseless acts of violence, and hate-filled streets hit hard and spun me in a momentary interruption that I wasn't ready for.   Question for you - When you say the names of the Black and brown boys, men, women, and girls who have been murdered by police or hate-filled citizens (that we know of), what do you think about?  When you say your name, what do you think about?  When you hear my 8-year old son (Minute 22:44), what do you think about?  SAY MY NAME! AND MEAN IT!  DO YOU KNOW THE POWER IN YOUR NAME?

S1E10- This is My Journey: It's Time to Write & Own Yours!

How often do we allow our limiting beliefs and those crazy negative talks in our head shut us down and make a u-turn on our journey's? How often do we sit in the comfort of complacency because it is easiest and most familiar to us? Well, in episode #10, I'm gifting you a pause and taking you through how to write your own "Journey Story."  You are invited to listen in...and then meet me on the virtual dance floor because....I'm celebrating my #smallwin of hitting 10 podcast episodes AND 1K listens for a single episode....yep! If you don't celebrate, who will? I'll see you there!   Whether a person, a circumstance, or a situation, we are not defined by either. This episode is a reminder from me to you!  It is a reminder that your journey is yours alone and.....the best part about it is that you have the authority to write it, make a u-turn, should you choose, own it, and then you also hold the permission slips to give only to those who you deem worth to help you walk, run, or climb your journey....YOUR WAY!  Today, we start the process of writing you journey!  Are you ready? In this episode's coaching, the soul-work is mapping a path that has one or a few junctions along the journey, then identifying and facing fear head on.  I use Stop 1 in my book, The Intersection of You & Change (https://www.lolitawalker.com/the-book), pages 12 and 13) as a reference for consideration in framing your thoughs around your journey.  In cocktails, we give a cheers to our small wins and the nuggets that you pulled away and then in conversations, I answer some ...

S1E5 - Who's At Your Playground? Challenging Our Status Quo (with Mariangela Abeo)

!!EXPLICT LANGUAGE IN ON SECTION!!  “I am honest and live in my truth,” is the affirmation that kicks off this episode, which challenges your answer to the question of who is at your playground? and how do you acknowledge & engage? In a world where judging is often first of mind, assuming is a close second, & fear of our differences oftentimes crowd our space, we talk all about challenging our status quo with a focus on diversity and inclusion.  I gift a bit of coaching (minute 3:00) to challenge your thinking, with a bit of soul work and a story on bullies, enjoy a few cocktails (minute 12:03) to celebrate greatness, then we have some kitchen-table conversations with Mariangela Abeo (minute 13:37), suicide survivor, founder & photographer of The Faces Of Fortitude Project, TEDx speaker, & podcaster.  I ask you again, are you honest and live in your truth?In coaching, I ask you to imagine there’s a playground right outside of your window. You’ve been wanting to go all day and now is finally your time. You take a glance over and see a host of folks there, some think like you, some you can see differences in right away. What goes through your mind as you decide if you will go over? What biases dance in your head? During cocktails, we give a cheers to you! and conversations take us from childhood to our 40's, self-discovery, being unapolgetic, walking into fear, and even to the Seattle riots where Mariangela shares a story that lays out white privilege on a silver platter right before our eyes.   Who is at your playground and are you being honest and living in your ...
