Hello, I’m Donieal Louise
I am passionate about the discovery of who we are as women and honing in on our abilities, wants, and needs.
Life Motto: Stop and smell the roses
Hello Beautiful! My name is Donieal Louise and I am obsessed with showing women how to listen to themselves and make themselves a priority. I am inspired to do this work because I myself struggled with the balance of everyone else’s wants and needs from my own. When you are lost you feel as if you are in a fog or haze. When I came out of this, it is much like when you are on a plane, stuck in the clouds, but when you start to discover yourself, you start to rise above the clouds, and soon enough you are in the sunshine feeling on top of the world.
It was a few years ago that my two beautiful children gave me a new perspective on life. I pondered on their questions for sometime about what I wanted to be when I grew up, why I am not doing it now, what my favorite things to do were, and what made me happy. It forced me to really reflect on what I wanted out of life and why I was choosing not to live it the way I wanted. I struggled with my weight and did all sorts of diets, until I found Keto and IF. It changed my entire outlook on food. I then started to practice yoga with my children and found my love for that. Shortly after that I really started to take what I wanted out of life that would make me happy more seriously and worked through the steps of getting to that point. I have found that life has a way of passing us by so fast and when we tell ourselves I will do it tomorrow or figure it out later, we are only failing ourselves. So that’s when I decided to adopt the motto my late baby sister always said, stop and smell the roses. Look around and really open your eyes. Be present at the moment and appreciate all life has to offer. If you want to do something, go for it today, or at least get the gears moving today, so you can continue to work on it tomorrow.
Random Fact: As a little girl and even as an adult I am told I “think too much” and “I am loud”. These are attributes in which I will never apologize for because it is who I am, it is what fuels my passion about all things, not just one, as I am a Gemini, and what makes me truly appreciate and love those who are similar, those deep thinkers, rebels, and people full of energy. The ones who think outside the box and do not fit in the “normal” category. The people who are not afraid to make a splash.
HOW I CAN HELP
I want to empower women to push their limits, make themselves a priority (and not feel guilty about it), and find their passions. Take away the box that people want to place you in and start living outside of it. Transform you into a person that you can see in a reflection and recognize. You will be truly made your way.
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
The purpose is to move in the direction of finding out who you are and what you see for yourself. Listening to that inner voice, call intuition or your gut, that has been ignored and doing something about it. If this means eating healthier, exercising more, trying something new like yoga, or exploring your creativity and learning how to express all of it, then this is your site.
