I'm Denuelle or Dee as many call me. I am a mom of 4, the youngest of 6, a wife, daughter, Coach, motivator, life strategist, and friend. My story is both unique and completely like yours.
What I have learned over the years tells me I am enough. You are enough! We all have a story, our story is the tapestry of our lives~ its ups, its downs, its sideways days, chapters, and years. But, one thing I know for sure is you and I are both enough. And when we claim that, holy shit, there is nothing we can't do. Can I please get an Amen in the house?
So, here's a little about me~
I have coached hundreds of women to find their focus, push hard, slay their stinkin-thinkin, get their mind, body, and spirits in tip-top shape, along with their careers, relationships, finances, and overall well-being.
I have shared with them my energy, creativity, and knowledge, empowering them to not only create a life purpose vision, but to live it out loud. Boldly. Bravely!
I have witnessed them claim their "enoughness" and then fricken soar, and it is the pleasure of my life 🙂
A Little of What I’ve Learned
..while raising kids the days are long, but the years are short. And that really does suck.
...my mental well being can play tricks on me, and the best way to stop the pyscho-terrorism is to stop myself and shift. Move. Workout. Go make meaning elsewhere. I’ve learned this works every, single time.
...I’ve said “But for the grace of God that could have been my child” more than I would have ever imagined.
...you notice pregnant women when you are pregnant, elderly parents when you’ve lost one, struggling moms when you’ve been one, a trembling addict when you’ve loved one, a scared teenager when you’ve had one, a mentally ill person when you are related to one, and a hopeful person when you consider yourself one.
...love requires sacrifice. Sacrifice as in, many times, ya gotta suck it up & do things you don't want to do. Like love when your pissed off, lean in when you’d rather run, push on when you’d rather retreat, give, give, & give some more, bend until you are positive you’ve cracked, negotiate, concede. And I've learned this is a two-way street.
... I have had more heartache, speed bumps and pain then some, but more joy, blessings & happiness than others..So this is me. This is what makes me both unique and exactly like you, my friend. Crazy, messy, pretty, fun, imperfectly perfect and enough. You and me, we are enough and I know that because I’ve learned to say Amen!
