You are enough.
This message is one that many are used to hearing when it comes to their self-image and self-esteem. This statement, along with others akin to “you are fine just as you are” and others, makes sense. However, for those who are going through challenges ranging from professional, financial, or personal, the words sometimes seem hollow in nature, and the concepts and ideas can get somewhat muddled given whatever situation is taking place.
On Saturday, August 22nd, through the programming hosted by Lashelle Denise Creative, the I Am Enough Empowerment Brunch takes aim at the aforementioned areas of concern. Taking place at Brawner Hall (3180 Atlanta Road in Smyrna) from 11:30am-2pm, the women-geared event provides attendees the opportunity to gain access to resources focusing on their improved information, inspiration, and overall empowerment.
“The goal of the brunch is to provide them (women in attendance) with the understanding that they are enough to impact changes in their lives, families, and their communities”, notes Demishia Wright, the organization’s owner and president, in our discussion on Thursday (August 13th).
Kimberly Isis Thomas of Ihearthatgirl.com, Talisa Royal (of Mirror This, Inc.), and Drea Lewis of Dream of Drea are the featured speakers for the event. The topics provide a means to help address areas of need related to inspiration, empowerment, and even networking.
An added empowerment piece includes reaching out to women who are considered low-income or are current residents of shelters. Typically, this is a segment of the community that may not be able to attend such an event; as a result, women in this demographic are admitted at no cost.
Donations are welcome; for more details, make sure to purchase your tickets online (click HERE to go to the site) by Thursday, August 20th.
Empowerment comes in multiple ways; with the upcoming brunch, women from all walks of life are afforded an opportunity to come away with tangible strategies and ways to not only help themselves, but those around them based on where they live, work, and play.
The brunch, along with other related programming, provides a simple, yet powerful reminder of how important women truly are. Instead of not being able to see the forest through the trees, it can give a sense of calm and clarity that there’s something greater that lies ahead in one’s individual, professional, and family lives.
In other words, they are enough.
