1. A Fierce woman holds herself accountable for her actions. She recognizes the importance of keeping her promises, especially to herself. A Fierce woman calls herself out on her own BS. When she is wrong, she acknowledges it and moves forward. She realizes that she is in control of her own actions. She is only responsible in speaking her truth in a way that feels right to her. She is not responsible for how people react to her truth.
2. A Fierce woman exudes kindness. There’s a certain warmth to her. She has a strong confidence and security in herself that she does not feel the need to be nasty to people. She is willing to help others if and when it is within her limits. A Fierce woman gives everyone a fair chance and the benefit of the doubt within reason.
3. A Fierce woman does not let anyone limit her dreaming. There are always going to be haters and people who just don’t see her potential. That’s okay. She knows that living in a way that lights her heart up is important and not shameful. Her aim is not to please others but to create an environment where she thrives in all areas of her life. A Fierce woman realizes her purpose and does not let outside factors get in her way. She sees obstacles as challenges. She uses her wins as inspiration to create more. A Fierce woman has the courage to shareher message because she knows she is meant to make a difference in some shape or form.

Fierce Love, Kindness and Speaking Your Truth.

IMG_4851I am an advocate of kindness. A small act of kindness can dramatically change someone’s life with a smile, a phone call, or a prayer.

I am a recovering people pleaser. I used to think I could be super nice or I could be mean. No in between. Two extremes. Life is not about extremes. It is about finding balance, at least that is what I strive for.

Through my journey of discovering how to speak MY truth while being true to myself, I’ve discovered a few things along the way and I want to share them with you.

Speaking of my journey, I am launching a podcast, Vow to be Fierce soon. It’s taking me a little longer to launch than expected but I’m not letting anything stop me. Timing is everything. I’m going to talk about standing up for yourself and speaking your truth with a splash of kindness.

Okay so, the key to authentic kindness is your intention. Doing something because you genuinely want goodness for someone else as simple as it may be will fill your life with goodness. You know the saying what you give is what you get in return? It’s true.

I choose to give off kind energy. Not because I expect it from other people in return but because I choose to give it to myself. The energy we give off bounces back to us.

What do you usually attract when you’re in a bad mood or feeling grouchy? How we respond to the world is a reflection of what we want to receive.

Being kind does not necessarily mean being nice all off the time. Sometimes, being kind to a person means giving them a lil “tough love” as some people may refer to it.

Or what I call Fierce love.

Fierce love is being honest with someone you love even when it’s uncomfortable.

Fierce love is letting someone live their life and make their own decisions and choosing to love them without limits, even if you don’t agree with them. Remember, you are solely responsible for your own thoughts and actions.

Fierce love is lifting someone up instead of telling them “the truth” to advance your own agenda.

Fierce love is knowing the difference between speaking your truth and being a jerk because you’re not feeling your best.

It’s all in your delivery. There is a loving way to speak your truth.

Agreeing with someone because you don’t want to ruffle feathers is not love. It’s fear. I learned this eventually.

Here are 3 questions to think about when you want to share your truth in a loving and authentic way:

1. Is what I am saying going to make the situation better?
2. Is what I am saying what I truly believe or is it coming from a place of fear?
3. Am I trying to hurt someone with what I am saying? If so, is that really coming from a loving place?

I hope you got something from this. As always, take what resonates with you and leave the rest or share with someone you think would benefit from learning how to speak their truth with kindness.

I’m curious to know more about you, is it easy for you to speak your truth? Share below.
