Hello! I am so glad you stopped by and it is my sincere hope that you plan to stay around a while.
I am Kenya Rae, a personal growth advocate and enthusiast. I help women who feel like they are struggling with the everyday to overcome and move forward.
what to expect
I share my own reflections and life lessons and I also feature everyday women who have been or are currently struggling in some capacity.
Not to air dirty laundry, but to offer freedom to the person sharing and the person reading the reflection.
Transparency and openly sharing allows us to be relatable and relate to others. When we share our journeys together, we enable each other to grow and no feel alone or isolated in difficult circumstances.
how i started
Like many people, I started blogging to write and vent. Essentially an online journal.
I finished up my MBA, which I did exceptionally well at, contrary to my undergrad experience, and I wanted to keep writing.
Coincidentally I started what some people would deem the "dream" job with the Department of Defense around the same time.
But it was not my dream.
Within months of being with the DOD, I felt like I didn't belong there and that was not the space God wanted me to stay.
In early 2016 after being fed up with being forced to go to a space day-in and day-out that I dreaded. Where days sometimes started with tears. A place I had to ask permission to be present for my family. I decided I didn't want to do it anymore.
I left a pretty secure job, making "good" money, to live my life authentically. To be present for my family. To help inspire and motivate others to live an authentic life too.
With my husband in a similar space, we totally uprooted our life in August 2016.
We sold our house, quit our corporate jobs and left the state we were born and raised in. All to create a new life and legacy for our blended family. Trusting God for more, and believing we can move mountains.
I am sharing that journey and so much more here. Parenting, relationships and reviews of everyday products and services to make your life easier.
