We had the good fortune of connecting with Earth Mama Naturals and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Courtney, as a parent, what have you done for you children that you feel has had the most significant impact?
Teaching my children to always be present in their emotions, honest about their feelings, and intentional about their healing and growth. I’m not here to control them I’m here to guide them. They say in order to move past your trauma you have to forgive and forget why is that even a norm it should never be your tone. well I say to you, you can forgive, but forgiveness doesn’t look the same for everyone. Forgiveness doesn’t mean over look and never recover. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you’ll never receive an apology because in reality you’re mending every broken piece of your childhood self when you choose to heal. You’re apologizing to yourself for ever thinking you didn’t or don’t deserve better.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a creative I’ve safe havens for women to be open and honest and to show up for themselves where they thought they couldn’t. I’ve always been a big supporter of healing and my own journey light a fire in me that will always burn. I’ve learned that healing isn’t a time frame nor an expiration date and you’re always allowed to start over. Take your time. And proceed as necessary. I am everything I am.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite places are all the vegan places lol and the holistic herbs shops.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’m always going to shoutout my tribe. All my sistrens are dope and showing up for themselves and others in amazing ways.
