I had a revelation at 46 - It was time to start a “Revolution“! I started out as a “nice girl” and turned into a “nice woman“. What I noticed over time was...nice woman get stepped on! We get taken advantage of because we don’t feel it’s “right” to stand up for ourselves or what we believe in. We have let other people influence our path in life!

When I discovered that I did get stepped on, I decided to take action. I found that I could stand in my integrity, my authenticity and my honor, and be nice too! I came back to the authenicity I remembered having when I was young! I found my inner strengths! I took action and created the path I wanted in life!  I began to stand in the passion and the brilliance of WHO I truly was!  

I rediscovered ME! The symbol of the red shoe is strength in WHO we are; strength in our passion to create the life we desire. It’s the energy to be in integrity and the wisdom to know when we have stepped out of it. It’s the power to be honest and courage to stand in our confidence.

Okay, it doesn’t matter what type of red shoes you choose to wear, it’s that you choose to wear them. When you choose to “GO RED“, you are choosing to live a conscious, confident life. You are choosing to be your TRUE SELF. And you are choosing to walk with your sisters -  to support all those that choose to walk in inner strength, integrity and honor. Celebrate conscious living!

    • I am so tired of being taken advantage of.  I even acknowledge that it is entirely my own fault because I do not like conflict of any kind.  I like your revolution revelation Christine.  So if I want to have one of them too, do I need to get red shoes or purple?

    • I like purple too! Get a pair of each and wear whatever feels right at the time!! *haha  As a matter of fact, I’m on a red and purple shoe search myself.

      I have had many aha! moments and revelations throughout my life. As a coach, I have been fortunate to support others in finding their moments. I am always curious about people’s self discoveries and the unique adventures their journey takes them on.

    • When I finally became at home in my own skin, I told myself that I was going to get a red dress. I’ve never been a wearer of red. But I am wearing a red sweater today, does that count? hehe ;o)  

      Claureano, I’m a coach too! Looks as if we have similar callings. I love to encourage women to (re)discover the woman that God created them to be. I love my job!

    • I think one of the most wonderful aspects of getting older is that we do become more comfortable in our own skin. I have tried to deal with some of that in my new novel, THE SINNER‘S GUIDE TO CONFESSION (Berkley, 2008). Actually, a young woman commented on the novel that it is more like “Sex and the City” for women in their forties and fifties! Is that a criticism? Definitely definitely not! Women over forty are still fabulous and still interested in sex and in rediscovering and reinventing themselves. The journey is hard, but it can be very exciting!
