Dating With A Disability: Up Close & Personal

On January 21, 2017, women all around the country marched for some of these reasons.  For some of those same reasons it is  important for me to produce this show and readdress this topic.  This show is about more than dating with a disability.  It’s about equality, acceptance, self-esteem, perception and self-love.  As I spoke to these women, listening to their desires and concerns about love and relationships was all too familiar.  They shared the same needs and desires that I hear from able-bodied women.  In contrast, some of their fears were different.  These women have to deal with the assumptions and stereotypes that are often associated with anyone who has a disability.  I salute these women for their courage, honesty, and for being a light of hope.  I encourage them to continue to let their light shine…Love will find its way.  Please watch, comment, like, subscribe…Enjoy!

Reinvention

one-way-street-1113973_1920

 

Have you ever been in a bad situation, knowing that you should leave and you stayed? Unhealthy relationships, dead-end jobs, lapses in judgement, procrastination, etc, etc.  It’s funny how easy it is for us to get comfortable being uncomfortable.  It’s strange but true for many of us, including myself.  With this on my mind, it became very apparent that I need to do something different so that I can achieve something different.

From the very beginning I’ve had this vision of what my show would look like.  Although, I’m very proud of my show and what I’ve been able to accomplish I still haven’t created the show I envisioned.  As I sit here with a myriad of ideas feeling like I’m not making any progress, I watch the number of my YouTube views plummet with each new show.  All while my counterparts seem to be doing amazing.  My thoughts as I make my observations are, “Do I really have to be the butt of the joke, contribute to the overload of celebrity gossip, start rolling my eyes and sucking my teeth with hands flailing?”  After taking note of what I don’t want to become.  I took note of what is working for them.  Enter the reinvention of ‘WHAT WOULD she DO?’  I’m sure you’ve been here before.  Feeling like you have to do something but you just don’t know what to do.

So, what would she do? She spoke to her sister who made a suggestion.  I must admit, I didn’t receive what she told me right away because of course I’ve had this vision from the beginning, and I want to do it my way.  Then I asked myself a question.  Is there only one way to achieve your goals?  The answer for both you and me is NO. If there is more than one way to do a thing and the one way you’ve been doing it isn’t working why not try another way and see how that works.

The next step is to get out of my own way.  What needs to happen now? I need to do something NOW starting right NOW.  No more excuses about not having: enough time, enough resources, a good support system, etc, etc. I am a person of action, and there is no time like the present.  Why? Because tomorrow isn’t promised.  We all have the same number of hours in a day.  The difference between those who live their best lives and see their dreams to fruition and those who don’t is commitment to achieving goals, tapping into your resourcefulness, being honest with yourself, and taking action NO EXCUSES.

We can keep going in the one way direction that is leaving us unfulfilled or dare to step out on faith and try another way, and perhaps another way until we reach our destiny.  Be inspired by who you can become.  Be inspired by possibilities.  Life is about choices.  Choose to live your best life starting now.  The only limit you have is YOU…so get out of your own way and go for it!!!

Bringing Sexy Back

Has your relationship lost its sexy? Maybe it hasn’t. Wondering what you can do to keep it sexy? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions or if you’re just curious, then I have the show for you.

“Bringing Sexy Back” on ‘WHAT WOULD she DO?’

Saran hit the streets to find out what people are doing to get the sexy back into their relationships. Saran sat down for a one on one with Lori Ann Davis a Relationship Specialist in Charlotte, NC, for an understanding of the reasons why relationships go from hot and steamy to cold and dry.  Lori offers some wonderful tips on how to get the fire back or how to keep the fire burning.

We also tried something new…some first hand advice from some real life couples.

We’re looking forward to your comments.
