Your Season of Suddenly

By: Dr. Shari​ce

As I was pondering about my next blog I thought of the title ‘Are You Ready for Suddenly?’ and then Coach O stated in a Facebook post the same day that this was ‘Your Season of Suddenly’. This let me know that I was on the right track. Don’t you just love confirmation?


So let me ask, what if that opportunity you had been waiting for fell in your lap today? What if that phone call you have been waiting for came right now as you were reading this blog, you know that call that would change your life? What if your email inbox was flooded with clients waiting and eager to work with you right now? What if (for those of us who work for others right now) that promotion or position you so desperately wanted was offered to you right now? Would you be ready, or would a sudden experience wreck your current life? Are you ready for this season of Suddenly?


Who or what would affect your ability to operate ‘suddenly’? Do you have a spouse or children to think of before moving on your season of suddenly? Are you a caretaker for a parent or a loved one? Is there a significant other or ‘situationship’ that you would need to consider before making a ‘suddenly’ decision?  

When it comes to seasons of ‘suddenly’, there are so many things to consider, or is that just what we tell ourselves. Are the what if’s and who if’s only excuses and self-imposed barriers to keep us from reaching our full potential and being able to operate in these unexpected and well-deserved blessings and opportunities?

How can you effectively navigate ‘Your Season of Suddenly’?


  1. Know that you know that you know that you were created for such a time as this. Know that when people consider you for opportunities and promotion you have earned the right to be there. You have earned the right to be elevated, selected, celebrated. Embrace it! Move as if you already have it and make it happen.
  2. Look at how the ‘suddenly’ opportunity can set you up for future successes. Is this a part of your long-term plan that will yield long-term results? Is this opportunity going to position you to be greater, go farther, have a more powerful impact? How can this opportunity fit into your overall long-term greatness? Begin with the end in mind.
  3. Be strategic in all of your considerations. If the ‘suddenly’ requires relocation, dissolution of some responsibilities, or connections that have been unfruitful, understand the difference between where you are and where you are going. Not only be strategic but be also realistic. Separate your priorities from your problems and see how you suddenly align with where you are trying to go ultimately.
  4. Know the difference between opportunities that will grow you and opportunities that will drown you. Make the best decisions for you and all of those considerations I have listed. And know that the list I added here is not exhaustive, there could be other considerations that you need to make the best decision for you.  

The bottom line is to be ready. If you are not ready now, get ready, you never know when who or how ‘Your Season of Suddenly’ will play out. You could get that unexpected call or that unexpected email today and you don’t want to miss the opportunity because you are not ready.

How Do You Unwind?

By: Dr. Shari​ce

It’s a wonderful feeling and a great accomplishment to be a successful entrepreneur. No matter what you do, creative services, coaching, beauty, or sales, seeing your dreams become a reality is one of the best feelings any of us can have.  


What did it take to get there? Long hours, sleepless nights, missed events? Working a 9-5 only to come home and work a 5-9, the struggle for many has been real. Now that you have everything up and running, systems in place, correspondence set to automation, what about you?  

You have put in the work. Now it is time to reap the rewards. One of the best rewards you have earned is the ability to take care of yourself. What do you do to practice self-care? Are you taking care of yourself? Or outside of putting your business first, are there other priorities on your list? Where do you fit in the list? What do you do now that you don’t have to work the 7 day weeks and 15 hour days?


When was the last time you had a day off? Not a day off from your daytime job but 24 hours of no business, no email, no phone calls? Let me get more personal, when was the last time you went to the doctor? When was your last physical? Have you had the headlights and the China cabinet checked (boobs and vagina)? Have you been to the eye doctor or are you still squinting at the computer screen? Do you know what age-appropriate screenings you should have?


See self-care is more than Mani’s and Pedi’s and spa days. I’m here for all of those things. I’m also here for the vacations and the girls’ night out and the besties brunch. But if you are not together how can you really enjoy those things?

Start with the basics. Schedule your appointments if you haven’t done so already. Spend a day or a few days making sure that your physical health is information. Take care of YOU!

Once you do that then it is time to unwind. Take the day off. Put the calls on ‘do not disturb’. Let the kids know you are off duty for the day. If you feel comfortable (we are still in the midst of a pandemic) go and get a manicure and pedicure. Go to the salon and get your hair laid. Make an appointment for a massage. Take some of the money you have made and treat yourself to something you have always wanted and can now afford.


You can also unwind by taking a hot bubble bath with some smooth music and a glass of wine. Spend some time on your couch or favorite chair with the latest magazine or a good leisurely read. Cook your favorite meal and enjoy the flavors and textures that made it your comfort food.  

Whatever you choose to do, remember the quote about all work and no play. Make some time for yourself. You make time for everything and everyone else, now it’s your turn. What are you going to do to unwind?
