For Women’s History Month, this year, I decided to focus on ways in which everyday women can make history for themselves. So I will be sharing with you and on social media, different quotes by women of color, powerful women of color, and my take on what that quote means to me and how it applied to my life.

Just thinking about this… if you only knew the many “failures” I’ve had, you would ask the same question my Metaphysician asked me when I appeared on her doorstep many years ago, and that question was…

“How on EARTH are you still standing!?!?!”

Today’s quote is…

“You will be wounded many times in your life. You’ll make mistakes. Some people will call themselves failures, but I have learned that failure is really God’s way of saying excuse me, you’re moving in the wrong direction. It’s just an experience, just an experience.”

And that quote is by Oprah Winfrey. So tune into the episode as I share with you what that quote means to me and how you can apply it in your life.

See you inside…
