Greetings! Carmen Veal here. Founder of Brown Skin Women and Creator of the Design Your Life Guide.
I am excited to finally make time to create this guide to connect with women beyond my home state. So that you can also design your life and live the life you imagine.
You may already know I created Brown Skin Women as a result of chopping off my damaged relaxed hair to embrace it in it’s natural state. I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, no professional guidance, no anthing to really help me figure this out. It was really a matter of winging it and figuring the steps out as I went along.
What that ended up doing was inspiring a journey of natural living, self love, self care, self development, how I treated myself and my thoughts. Mental wellness became huge to me and so I’ve been able to share these experiences over the years. In no real rhyme or reason sort of way, it was just me sharing today is Tuesday and here is what I did and today is Saturday and here is what I’ve done.
It continued to pull women in more and more. So i decided after all these years, I wanted to make this a structured organized program that women can access no matter where you are in the world. And apply what I’ve applied in my life, in your own. Of course you’re going to customize it so that it applies to who you are, what you are and where you are. But the guide is the same.
It’s really a matter of following some basic steps that I have established. Ones I’ve used with clients, with family and friends. It has proven to be something that can work for anyone as long as you do the work.
So what I’m going to do now is outline what is to come.
1. Acknowledge and Accept
Where you are and what you are struggling with.
2. Transition and Growth
What specific areas of your life can use some fine tuning and improving.
Think about what it is you would love to do or become and prepare to take the steps to design your life and become those things.
4. Goal Digging
What is it that you would really like to do and what steps to take to achieving that goal.
5. Choose Choice
Choose to be great! No matter how difficult it gets, no matter how hard it becomes, no matter how much you feel like giving up. You have to always choose to not give up, to not succumb, to not let yourself sleep so deep into the abyss that you can't pull yourself back out. I'm saying this is not going to happen; the fear and the doubts in life. Life happens. Illnesses, death and anything that makes being human on this earth a thing. It's going to happen naturally. But it's all in the mind. How you choose to overcome and how quickly you bounce back.
I am excited. I am someone who came from a very dark place, dark past, struggled upbringing. If I can turn my life around, anyone anywhere in this world can do it too.
I adore you, and look forward to connecting with you again soon.
