Why are you so damn emotional?

Have you been accused of that before?

Are you constantly trying to keep your emotions in check or filter what you say?

Yea, um…here’s my perspective on that:

That’s some antiquated bullshit

that was placed on women to keep us in service mode, and stop us from connecting with our own wants and needs.

I came across this Ted Talk by Eve Ensler (remember The Vagina Monologues™?), where she talked about embracing your inner girl. You know she was speaking my language, right?

The home page of my main site makes no bones about my practice of inner-girl embracing.

I had to share this with you.



How will you embrace your inner girl today?

  • I sooooooooo LOVED, ENJOYED and very much APPRECIATED watching this video! Thank you Akilah for sharing it! The message is so powerful and is one that has been showing itself to me….yet I was unclear on what it was trying to say to me. I have been COMPLETELY INSPIRED by watching this! I’m excited to support this movement, as I work with others to “Empower our INNER GIRLS!” Looking forward to this journey! Blessings and Continue to FLOURISHE Execumama!

    • Thank you for your feedback, Cortney! I feel you! I think the empowerment work you’re doing with Flourishe is right in line with the movement to empower our inner girls. It’s been two years since I’ve been putting my Inner Girl work into practice, and it has taught me so much about my own patterns, habits, and emotions. This work has also been a MAJOR resource in my approach to parenting my two girls. I know you have a beautiful little girl in your life too, and I think this practice makes us better women AND better mothers. Blessings to you too, love!
