Hi friends! I hope everyone is doing well and having a wonderful summer! I've missed blogging, but a much needed vacation was in order--time to reset, refocus, and relax. I also decided to restart a daily practice that helps set the tone for my day/week--stating a personal mantra. A personal mantra is a positive phrase or affirmative statement that you say to yourself for the purpose of motivation or encouragement. This could be your favorite [scripture], quote, proverb, spiritual truth or religious saying that motivates and inspires you to be your best self. ~~Rosetta Thurman
Please feel free to join me in declaring a mantra each Monday that will prepare you for the week ahead. You can share your mantra by commenting below. Today's mantra:
I’m Trinka Polite! Georgia native! Aunt Extraordinaire (at least I think so)! Lover of divinely delicious food! Servant of God and I gratefully accept my calling as counselor, poet, and speaker. My mission?
As a counselor, it is to empower you to access your full potential and live more authentically!
As a poet, it is to share words to inspire love, deliverance from hurtful situations and encourage a renewed relationship with God.
As a speaker, it is to provide a dynamic experience which will actively engage you and your group in learning and growing.
My professional background includes over 14 years as a Career Counselor providing education planning and career guidance. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and National Board Certified Counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology. My publications include After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground—poetry collections focused on spiritual awakening and growth.
On a more personal note, the southern lady that I am loves to cook (have you seen my Pinterest board?) and have fun with my family! Are there any two things that bring more joy to a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south)? Lol
I hope we stay connected because new ventures are on the way to enlighten your mind and to partner with you to chart a course for your success!
