Smalltown USA

I just read a post where someone asked how can such awesomeness come from a small town--referring to a place in Georgia.

Even though I live outside of St Louis, I don't knock my hometown. Your hometown is where you have your roots. Your foundation. Family. Friends. The people who helped to cultivate who you are. Your heritage! Read Jehoshaphat's story One way or another, your hometown, flaws and all, plays a part in your future.

There's a book called What Southern Women Know (That Every Woman Should). It's true. Southern hospitality is real and I miss it so much. The mentality out here is different and as soon as God releases me, South here I come!

Leaving your nest to grow is a part of nature's design. But as the wise songwriter said, "making your way in the world today takes everything you got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name and they're always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see your troubles are all the same. You wanna go where everybody knows your name." Catch that, did you?

And that's home for me! Good ol' Sylvester, Georgia!

Share one great thing about your hometown!

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!
