In this day and age, it is easy to get caught up in technology. Don’t get me wrong, technology is great but too many times we rely on technology as our only way to communicate. We want to talk to someone, we send a text. We want to let someone know we are thinking about them we send a text, instant message or an email. When was the last time that you took the time to sit down and hand write someone a Birthday Card, a Thank You card or a Thinking of You card to let them know that you appreciated them? I can honestly say that I still love getting cards in the mail. If I don’t get a card from anyone besides my kids and my husband, my mother will send me a card for every occasion. There is something that makes you feel special knowing that someone took a few minutes to pick out a card, write a message and address the envelope. As much as we like to text, email, FaceTime and get on social media there is something to be said about the art of writing. Sending a card or note in the mail is a small gesture that has a BIG impact. The next time you want to “unplug” from the technology world blow the dust off of those old greeting cards, pull the forever stamps out of that drawer, grab a pen and send an unexpected note to that special friend, family member or old acquaintance. You just may put a smile on someone’s face that only their memories will see.
Sometimes a simple note will do.

Who is She? I am a Wife, Mom, Daughter, Full Time Employee, Friend and Change Agent that has been succeeding, failing and winging it for years. Although I am not perfect, I do know that God has been guiding my path along the way in each journey. No matter how good or bad my experiences may be or have been, I know they serve a purpose. What is that purpose? To show you that you are not taking this journey called life alone. Over the years I have met phenomenal women with stories that you would not believe unless you heard them yourself. I created the SheSpeakz platform as a way to “Speak Life” into ourselves and those around us. SheSpeakz is a way to tell our stories and encourage women to embrace their journeys. At times it may be uncomfortable but there is someone who needs to hear your truth. I love meeting other people, listening to others about their life experiences, making connections and helping others make connections. When women collaborate with and support other women, amazing things happen. Some of my passions are leadership/personal development, empowering women to be themselves, mentoring, public speaking, baking, traveling, writing my blog and spending time with my family and friends. I currently reside in the San Antonio, Texas area with my spouse and our two active children. My call to action for you as a reader is to embrace who you are and know that you are enough. We all can use a little improvement in some areas of our lives but don’t let that stop you from loving yourself and being the best you. I also ask that you take the time to encourage and support one another. In this delicate time, we can all use positivity in our lives. I also ask that you are intentional about making a positive impact in the lives of those around you and in your local communities. Use your talents that you have been given to change the world one good deed at a time. You can communicate with me on the following platforms: Follow me on Instagram: @theshespeakz Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for stopping by, I look forward to our journey together.
