“I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else’s whim or to someone else’s ignorance.”– Bell Hooks
Dear Beautiful Souls,
I greet you with immense joy and gratitude. I am Wintress Patrice, a certified NLP Life Coach, and founder of IAWP Life Coaching LLC. I write to you today, inspired by the profound words of Bell Hooks, “I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else’s whim or to someone else’s ignorance.”
Our journey, particularly as BIPOC, is marked by challenges, struggles, and unique experiences that shape our lives and identities. Often, societal pressures and injustices can threaten to confine us, to limit our dreams and ambitions, and to muffle our voices. But I want you to remember one thing: You are a boundless being with infinite possibilities.
There’s an untamed force within you, a strength that defies convention, a spirit that refuses to be silenced, and a light that is destined to shine bright. Today, I want you to take a step towards acknowledging and embracing that power. Your path to self-empowerment, self-love, and self-awareness is not just a desire, but a divine right.
It’s a journey of discovering the essence of your true self, of refusing to be defined by anyone’s narrow perception of who you should be. It’s about finding your voice, asserting your rights, celebrating your culture, and living authentically, fearlessly, unapologetically.
I recognize that this journey is not without its hardships. But remember, every struggle is an opportunity to grow, every challenge a chance to become stronger. Forgive yourself for past mistakes and release yourself from their hold. Self-forgiveness is an act of liberation, and it allows you to forge a path towards healing and self-acceptance.
Living authentically means being comfortable in your skin, honoring your feelings, and being true to your values. It involves making conscious choices that align with who you are, and not bowing down to someone else’s expectations. This is your life, and it’s time you claimed ownership of it.
If you find yourself struggling or ready to embark on this transformative journey, I am here to support you. I am currently accepting new clients for 1:1 life coaching, where I will work alongside you, championing your victories and navigating through your struggles. I invite you to book a free 30-minute consultation with me on my website, www.WintressPatrice.com.
I promise you a safe, understanding, and nurturing environment where your dreams, your voice, and your life will be honored, respected, and celebrated. We will work together to build resilience, foster self-love, and empower you to live your most authentic life.
As we conclude this conversation, please don’t forget to share, comment, and follow me @WintressPatrice on Facebook, TikTok, and LinkedIn for more inspirational content. Also, tune into our QTO – Queen Talk Only Podcast, Season 2, with new episodes streaming every Sunday morning. Here, we delve deeper into these discussions, exploring, learning, and growing together.
I leave you with this: Your life is not meant to be a compromise or a battle; it’s meant to be a celebration of your unique self. Never let your spirit be tamed. Embrace your beautiful journey, step into your power, and live the life you are destined to live.
I send you off with love and light,
