Birthdays


I have the uncanny ability to call my Mom at the exact moment she is about to eat or is actually eating.  As she's gotten older, my Mom has decided to thank of it as sweet or endearing instead of frustrating. Many times I was met with "Girl, can you just smell it when I start cooking?!"

Well, the other Sunday was no different.  I called and she was having dinner. So jokingly, I said, "Mom maybe it's related to my actual birth day.What were you doing when I came into the world?"
She laughed and said, "Eating!"

"You were born on the 3rd Sunday in August.  It was the last day of revival, and you know back then the women brought boxes of food for dinner at the church.  I can remember like it was yesterday.  I was sitting on a bench, under a tree, eating collard greens, cornbread, ham and potato salad trying to ignore my labor pains...because the food was so good," she told me through bursts of laughter. Her pauses heavy with reflection.

I said, "Well, Mom that explains it! My love for cooking, nature and my lifelong desire to feel connected spiritually."

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!  

Peace & Blessings!
