How positivity, faith, and a little bit of sassiness can turn any situation around.
â€œIâ€™m not everybodyâ€™s cup of tea, but Iâ€™m somebodyâ€™s double vodka.â€ â€“ Wilma Jones
How often do we walk through life â€œdulling our shineâ€ because weâ€™re worried weâ€™re too big of a personality? That weâ€™re too loud or use too many swear words? How often do people tell us that we need to do less, be less, say less? Well youâ€™ve heard me say it again and again: you are beautiful, you are loved, you are enough.
You are not too much.
When Wilma Jones walked into HQ, I knew she was a special person â€“ sheâ€™s living her personal brand like nobodyâ€™s business. A mutual friend introduced us (Maritza Lizama, who will soon be coming to your ears in the next installment HERadventures) and man, am I glad she did. This woman is such a funny, positive force of energy and I canâ€™t wait to sit down with her again.
Wilma is not too much.
As youâ€™ll hear in her own words, Wilma is a big proponent of â€œpositive psychologyâ€ and that above all, positivity breeds positivity. She calls it a â€œvirtuous cycleâ€ â€“ a phrase Iâ€™m TOTALLY using from now on. (Another term of hers that I love: â€œcelestial bootcampâ€, which youâ€™ll hear about later in the episode.)
Wilma shared her incredible story with me â€“ how she went from feeling stuck and miserable in her marriage to being an empowered single mother and author. We bond over a mutual search for positivity and self-improvement, and she shared with me the secret to her success: being happy and grateful for where you are.
I canâ€™t wait for you to hear this episode â€“ I had so much fun recording it and canâ€™t wait to have her on the podcast again. Grab yourself a cup of tea (or double vodka) and get ready to be inspired!
