    Who's In Control of a Woman?

    Who's In Control of a Woman?

    In this episode, our conversation is about control and who is in control of a woman. As women, we hand over control to others and sometimes controllers often assume their position in our lives. Sometimes control is imposed. Recently there have been some experiences in the national and international arenas that have caused me to really reflect on this topic from the perspective of a woman's control, and who has it over her life, body etc...
     
    Yes, you can quote my "Pearls of Wisdom"        1. "You have to maintain control because sometimes we have all been guilty of being angry at God when God was giving us an upgrade." – Cecelia GreeneBarr
     
           2. "You are in control of your journey, which therefore means you have to exercise responsibility in your journey and exercise responsibility to vet the people who are with you in your journey." – Cecelia GreeneBarr
     
    "You are still responsible for your journey even if you have a mentor because you’re responsible for covering your journey with prayer." – Cecelia GreeneBarr  
    "Your calling is divine and sometimes it takes people a minute to see it but you don't relinquish control to people who can't see what God is doing in your life." – Cecelia GreeneBarr  
    "No matter what is done to you or around you, remind yourself, it is no one else's responsibility to manage how that impacts your mind and your emotions except for you." –Cecelia GreeneBarr  
     "It is nice when others stand up for you but, find your voice." – Cecelia GreeneBarr  
     "You have to understand that life is not going to stop swirling around you and you are going to have like a fruit salad of people in your life, coming and going and you have to maintain and take responsibility and be in control of how you feel." – Cecelia GreeneBarr     Links Find Cecelia GreeneBarr

    Meeting friends where they are w/ Pia Burley McAdams | Episode 27

    EPISODE OVERVIEW:
    In this episode, we explore how friendships change in terms of our really close sister friends and then those circles just outside of that and how it is important to make time for those relationships and to realize when it’s time to make that adjustment out of a friendship.
     
     
    PEARLS OF WISDOM:
     
    One of the must-haves for a true good friend is that they have to have the capacity to understand your heart.  – CECELIA GREENEBARR  
    Accept people where they are. - PIA McADAMS  
    Sometimes, people are not at peace with areas in their own life. - CECELIA GREENBARR

    Reconnecting with friends | Episode 25

    Reconnecting with friends | Episode 25

    On the podcast today, I talk to you about reconnecting with good friends. How many of us have sister friends that we've moved into the category of "former friend"? Maybe it's because time has passed, situations have come and go and they kind of dropped off our radar? If you have a sister-friend that you've disconnected with please enjoy this podcast. 
    Yes, you may quote me -  "PEARLS OF WISDOM"
     
    Not all disconnects happen because the friends had a disagreement.  Disconnects can happen because other things get put in front of the friendship.   
    If this friend is important to you then you are going to have to initiate the contact.  If you are tired of being the first mover then you have some soul searching to do about the worth of the friendship.  Friends are hard to come by.    If you have a sister-friend, it's worth trying to develop and make that relationship better.   
    CALL TO ACTION:
    It's time to reconnect. You need to put effort into understanding how the friendship disconnected. It’s not about sweeping things "under the rug" or ignoring the obvious. If the friendship was meaningful, make the emotional investment and reach out for the purposes of reconnecting. If it helps, invited your disconnected friend to listen to this podcast. It could be the vehicle to get the conversation flowing.

    The intentional act of follow up | Episode 24

    The intentional act of follow up | Episode 24

    Recently I attended a conference and in addition to learning the new material, I also decided to do an experiment in my own friendship skills. These are some of the lessons learned. 
    PEARLS OF WISDOM:
    There has to be intention and action after the initial connection.   
    We have to master the art of follow-up.   
    Following-up communicates your sincerity.  
     
    When you begin to do your follow up, try not to go the route of text messaging.   
    Keep your best friend relationships as personal as possible.   
    Don’t be so busy with the pursuit of life that you don’t have to follow-up with your BFF.   
    As females we can be better towards one another but it takes some work, effort and intentionality.    CALL TO ACTION:
    Follow-up today on some thing your BFF told you most recently. Follow up, call, drop by, FaceTime or Skype, make your presence and your interest and your concern known. It is just one more step towards being a better sister to your BFF.

    Steps to restoring friendships w/ Alicia Hunter | Episode 23

    Steps to restoring friendships w/ Alicia Hunter | Episode 23

    Have you found yourself in a situation where different sets of friends don’t want to be in each other's presence because they don’t want to share you? Or, have you had a situation where you and one of your BFFs had a fractured relationship? The goal of this podcast is to give you the tools and strategies for your geniune friendships to be restored.
    I’ve had falling outs with my friends and every woman I know has had a falling out with a friend. These relationships can be reconciled but it does require some work so here is your call to action. Let the work begin with in you.
    First, roam around your memory, not looking for what your BFF did but look at what you did, how did you contribute to the fall out? Where were you in your own headspace, where were you emotionally? Where were you physically? Do a walk around in your own headspace.
    Start working on correcting that element of what you discovered and then when the timing and the opportunity is correct, reconciliation will happen. The moment of reconciliation, will call for you acknowledge; "I know what was happening with me that contributed to this, I apologize for my part."
     
    PEARLS OF WISDOM:
    Its okay to allow other people to love you that aren’t biologically connected to you. – ALICIA HUNTER
     
    So many people are so selfish with themselves, they hold back the best of themselves because they are trying to be protective somewhere along the way. – CECELIA GREENEBARR
     
    Love and time heals all wounds and sometimes you just have to step back and give it time. – ALICIA HUNTER
     
    Its what happens in the passing of time that determines if the passing of time was valuable or wasted. – CECELIA GREENEBARR
     
     
    As females, we have the capacity to be better towards one another. – CECELIA GREENEBARR
     
    It is more important to love one another and to respect one another. – ALICIA HUNTER
     
    True friendships can be reconciled. – CECELIA GREENEBARR

Needed for healing

I came across this podcast after speaking with a friend about an incident from college that made her and another friend stop speaking to me. Listening to this podcast has given me perspective and wisdom that I wish I had almost 8 years ago. It’s actually painful to listen to but it allows me the space to face the fact that I may not have been a good friend at times. It has also helped me with situation where I have been on the receiving end of a bad friend. I’m thankful for these conversations and I believe that they are needed and necessary. Please come back!! Lol!!

This will change your mindset on your friendships!

I am working on refocusing my energy and love I give and this podcast has been life-changing. I listen to it everyday on my walks and I sometimes have to stop myself from stopping traffic to make people listen to it as well. The conversations in this podcast are what every woman needs to hear! I have already started putting in effort to make sure my friends (old, new, and ex) know they are loved and supported by me. I am so, so thankful I found this podcast.
