Heartfelt Excerpt from My Huffington Post Column…
Abiola: That is such a powerful story. One of the things that I enjoy on your site is that you talk about your grandmother. I always urge my “spiritpreneur” coaching clients to tell their personal stories because that’s what makes you uniquely you. You share about Ms Annie Ruth Williams.
V: My grandmother inspired all of this. Baking allows me to still feel connected with her. We got in the kitchen and we would tear it up. We would do our thing. People knew her for making these beautiful desserts. She could make people eat anything. But the disappointing thing was, she was full of fear.
She didn’t believe she was good enough to have a bakery or sell her products even though they were so good. And I just believed in her. I loved what she did and the spirit and passion that came out when she was in a kitchen.
I was like, “You know Grandma, when I get big I’m going to buy you a bakery.” And she was like, “That’s cute.” So when she passed I felt as though that dream passed. I didn’t want to cook with anybody else.
Then my dad found my amazing, beautiful, enchanted, firecracker, stepmother who entered our lives and ignited my love for cooking again. When I was 14, she said, “You want to cook with me?” And then we’re making cornbread from scratch. It reignited that passion. Then I went to college and people wanted me to cook their mac and cheese for homecoming.
Abiola: That is such a beautiful story, V. Thank you for sharing. You’re not only a successful “business bombshell,” but you are open about your personal transformation as well. Let’s switch into your “sacred bombshell” mode. How do you recharge your spirit?
V: Sometimes you might just need to take a break. Sometimes you need to have a full night’s sleep. Sometimes you might need to work out. Only you know what’s best for you.
Everything doesn’t work for everyone. But whatever feels good and resonates within your spirit, do that. When you feel good more people are attracted to you. You feel recharged; you feel confident; and you feel elegant. That’s how I get myself back. I also turn off my phone for 2 hours every day, without fail.
Abiola: Self-care is most important. You can’t do anything unless you are taking care of your vessel from the inside.
V: I feel like I’m obligated to live a great life. I have been through so much, and God still gave me a chance at life.
I feel like I owe it to God and to the world because grace was extended to me, to get myself completely together when times were hard. I went through therapy for a long time; just so I wouldn’t be angry with my mother because I knew I wanted to be a mommy one day. I knew I had to handle the anger that I had towards her and be forgiving and learn how to build relationships with women, which was very hard.
I laugh about this now, but I was the self-help section. And I was able to use that and therapy to self-heal and recreate my story so that it could have a better happier ending.
