Happy Thursday friends! Who is ready for FRIYAY?! 🙋🏻♀️🤩 Do you listen to audiobooks? If yes, what are some of your favorites? I love them! I’m always listening to a book (or a podcast) when I’m driving or getting ready in the mornings - things that don’t require a ton of brain power, ya know?
I know some of you are waiting and because it is taking so long, it may SEEM like the enemy is working and scheming. Don’t let those who have their Ishmael bully you for you don’t know what trouble is waiting ahead! Keep loving, serving God, living right, and living holy. Still do what is RIGHT! The fact that others are cutting corners does not mean it will not catch up to them! Don't let what others are doing make you do what does not even match who you are!
Never forget your journey! 💫
Dreams can take twist and turns, reroute and look very different today than where you began. And that’s okay! 💫
Created Woman launched as a blog and magazine in 2010 with a team that was dedicated to the vision to equip and empower women to be who they are created to be. And although the vision has stayed the same, the strategy has changed consistently, grown and evolved. 💫

I decided to start a weekly book recommendation of mine in terms of thoughts on a spiritual way of life. Reading Paolo Coelho's "The Alchimist" has thereby been one of my first encounters with spirituality as such. It is the story of experiencing love in its purest form by discovering the soul of the universe. And it is the story of thereby finding the courage to follow your dreams. Thank you Paolo Coelho for sharing this beautiful story.
Dvacátádruhá - Becoming 👑
Jak já byla skeptická 🤦🏻♀️ říkala jsem si, že to bude jen další verze příběhu o americkým snu, že autobiografie bývalý první dámy to není nic pro mě. Že to bude plný kýče a snaze vylíčit Ameriku jako zemi zaslíbenou. Pak mý oblíbený knihoholky pěly tolik chvály, že jsem jí koupila.
A byl to zážitek ❤️ zprvu jsem se musela trochu nutit, začátek měl možná příliš pozvolnej nájezd, ale rozumim, že to bylo pro celý dojem nutný a je to tak dobře, dětství bývá pomalý. A pak už to byla jízda až dokonce. Vlastně jsem toho o Obamových doteď moc nevěděla a moje znalosti americký vysoký politiky končí seriálem House of cards.
Dost obdivuju, že Michelle psala co prožívala bez servítek a s pokorou, jaký to je v roli mámy a manželky vysoce postavenýho politika, co smíte a nesmíte, jak všechno skloubit dohromady, že Jimmy Choo lodičky nejsou pohodlný, a jaká je ve skutečnosti britská královna, nebo Trump a že ke knize došlo až teď, dva roky po odchodu Obamových z funkce.
Bylo to krásný, obdivuju Michelle jak se se všemi rolemi statečně poprala a kolik toho dokázala. Jen mě mrzí, že jsem líná nebo pohodlná a nenašla jsem si čas přečíst Becoming v originále 🤷🏻♀️
Buďme všichni trochu víc jako Obamovi ❤️
5/5 - vzhledem k žánru
The brand ‘YOU’ is only as profitable as the company you keep.
Who is in your inner circle?
Be deliberate about who you let in.
Everyone around you must be serving a purpose to stay relevant to your mission!
You choose how much time you spend and how much of your attention they get. Your network they say, is your net-worth.
Scan through today and zone everyone within your sphere into the various zones or onion layer they belong. You will have better, clearer and more defined relationships.
Be positive, stay focused and keep moving.🌺🌺 #EvolvingWithTess #BecomingHer #MindsetBoss

I am taking an upside down approach to designing my “girl becoming” workshops. Instead of telling girls what I know, I am asking them questions. Turns out, girls know a lot about growing up! So I listen closely to them and then add to their ideas!
Tonight is my first workshop in the Becoming Summer Series. Come join me for the “Be Bold, Brave, and Body Confident” workshop. See link in bio!
⭐ Book Review ⭐
Becoming by Michelle Obama
What can I say about this very powerful memoir that may not have been said before? Not much, I assume, still giving it a go here.
Michelle Obama was born in a small neighbourhood in Chicago, IL. Starting from a humble beginning, her journey to the White House is nothing short of extraordinary. Becoming takes us through her childhood, family members and their relationships while she was growing up. Narrated in a very clear manner, she takes us through how she met Barack Obama and how they came eventually came to be the first couple. -
An poignant and powerful memoir by the former First Lady, Becoming is nothing short of empowering and assertive with its tone. The honesty with which she narrates her story makes the book appealing and relatable, and above all, it sends a message: never stop believing in yourself, work hard and aspire to be the best version of yourself. This is easily one of the top 10 books I have read so far this year!
Fun fact: I read half of this book using a physical copy and the other half via an audiobook. The audiobook is particularly compelling as Michelle Obama herself narrates it and does it very truly and emotionally.
Do you enjoy non-fictional memoirs? Have you read Becoming?

Sometimes we are angry at someone who was important to us. And sometimes, we don’t have an opportunity to resolve it with them. Perhaps they have faded out of our lives, or perhaps they have passed away. This may trouble us, leaving us feeling guilty or ashamed. But what must always be remembered is that sometimes people wanted us to be angry with them. They wanted there to be a rift between us. Because it’s the way that they barricaded themselves against connection. Sometimes the real issue does not lie within the conflict itself, but in the purpose that it served. Sometimes, the conflict was just their way of hiding from love. They wanted you to be angry at them, because that felt easier than being close. Conflict is not always what it seems.
Survival Mode Reimagined Pt.2: Practical Survival Strategies is out!
1) Own your truth – How can you feel beautiful when you know every one of your ugly truths?
The most difficult person to be completely honest and vulnerable with is one’s self. However, avoiding ourselves and the truth of our realities simply won’t change either of those things. We may not have explored Europe or Asia or South America, but we can always explore the various sites and monuments of our hearts and souls. There is no adventure more beautiful and fruitful than that of self-discovery. Whether the vehicle is writing, talking, making music, painting etc., just take the time to explore yourself by yourself and for yourself. The journey of self-discovery is life-changing.

It’s the name of the game. We are God/Goddess/Source becoming conscious of itself. All the beauty we seek is US!! We ARE THAT! Dissolving our shadows brings us to this very truth!!! #iamthatiam#beauty#becoming#shadowwork
