Welcome to the Leading Lady Project!
What is a leading lady?
A Leading Lady is a woman who is able to fully accept & embody who she is from the inside out, not afraid to share her true self to the audience that is the world. She doesn’t allow the potential critics or judgments of others to distract her. She is confident being [insert your name here] and sharing that self with all who are open to her embrace. Self-assured, she dedicates her whole heart to using her God given gifts and talents to create life.
A leading lady takes charge of her female character; the role of a bold, exceptionally unique woman that she alone was predestined to play. She is the heroine of her life story.
A leading lady is not afraid to confront her mistakes and learn from them. She is not afraid to be honest with herself, working to improve the fallacies and iron out the kinks of self-imposed limits. She uses fear as fuel to fire her drive and passion. Although challenging, she dares herself to defy the limits of her comfort zone, spitting up her doubts and partaking of bravery and courage instead.
Hello – My name is Sonia! I am a Leading Lady & so are YOU! 😀
What inspired the Leading Lady Project?
I created the #LeadingLadyProject (Inspired by T.D. Jakes book Gods Leading Lady) with the hopes of calling out the potential that lies within; saying goodbye to my past and embracing a bright future with bold authenticity.
As I began to lay out a plan for encouraging myself, I thought it would be a great idea to allow other women to participate with me. I wanted to give other women an opportunity to embody the role of a Leading Lady in their lives.
That being said, you have been cast to be the best you that you can be. It’s your time to take center stage and SHINE!
Change is a choice! What will you choose?
I want to challenge you (and myself) to meet face to face with the woman hiding deep within our souls. Let’s embrace our flaws & blemishes, our insecurities & uncertainties, our ups & downs, the in’s and out’s of our existence that contributes to the makings of the Beautiful, Inimitable You! There is no one like you, and that’s something to be embraced with a smile in your heart and joy in your smile!
Often times, we allow the chaos that sometimes makes up our reality to distract us from being our best selves. We allow self-imposed doubts, fears and worries to speak lies into the depths of our souls. We self-sabotage and allow negative thoughts to wreak havoc on our minds, all while wondering why we’re not experiencing the life we often dream of deep within.
Let’s take control of our lives instead of allowing our circumstances to dictate how we exist. We all have a choice. We have the power to choose whether we want to experience Joy or Bitterness, Happiness or Sadness, Unforgiveness or Love. What are you going to choose?
The 5-week challenge
The Leading Lady Project is a 5 week challenge, which will include some in-depth self-reflection. The overall purpose is to encourage complete honesty with ourselves so that we can move forward with a better sense of who we are, whose we are, and the type of woman we want to embody.
We will be challenged to focus on our relationship with God and our thought life, eliminating negative self-talk and depositing positive words into our spirits. We are going to work on taking a look at our self-esteem, our self-worth and our confidence. Working to improve the views we hold of ourselves and loving the creation we see in the mirror. And if you’re not happy with what you see, we will work on taking the necessary action to become a healthier and happier version of you.
Our ultimate goal will be to practice self-love so that we can in turn feel confident being our complete selves, loving others from a place of healthy and genuine authenticity.
At the beginning of each week, I will post a different challenge to work through, with each week having a new focus/theme. Below I’ve made a list of the themes for each week .
Week 1 Starts on Monday, August 4th.
I hope that you will join me on this discovery to purpose and self-love. Let’s begin the journey towards embracing and embodying the Leading Lady that resides within.
Week 1: Keep God First
Week 2: Self- Reflection
Week 3: Thought Life
Week 4: Self-Esteem & Self-Worth
Week 5: The 3 C’s: Courage, Confidence& Comfort Zone
