Good morning, lovely people! Welcome to a new day, week, and month!
That being said... today is October 1, which means it is officially Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
1/4 women will experience violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime. 1/7 men will experience severe intimate partner violence. 10,000,000 children are exposed to domestic violence every year.
This issue is significant and it doesn’t discriminate, friends. Keep an eye for more facts as well as help resources that will be posted.
Purple is the representative color for Domestic Violence Awareness. The #purpleheartchallenge will be going all month long! Wear purple, use purple items, write on your car, or draw a heart on your hand like me! (p.s. I’ll have a marker pen on me at school and wherever so come see/stop me for a hand hearts!) Whatever is the most convenient way for you to rock a little purple and spread a lot of love! Be sure to caption posts/pics with your “Love is _________” statement & #DVAM #purpleheartchallenge. Tag me for shares and shout outs please! I want to acknowledge your participation!!
*LOVE is VULNERABILITY NOT VICTIMIZATION.

Hey hey, friends!
This morning weather has me in all kinds of good spirits. It’s worth getting up for that’s for sure.
How are you? I hope the week has been overwhelmed by all that unique energy you’ve been putting out. Someone, somewhere is thankful you were out and about. Someone, somewhere has been impacted by your interaction or presence. Let today be no different.
Your character shines, you shine, so be sure to keep the light on for the rest of us!
Good morning & good day all!
We are here, and you have no idea how good it is! This week, long or short for you, is wrapping up. What are your takeaways? What are your next steps/new goals? What are you favorite moments?
Today, let grace & gratitude rule, truth & trials motivate, spirit & speech influence, heart & hands be perceptive and receptive.
As Domestic Violence Awareness Month moves forward, here is another fact:
