The Purposely You Experience
A recap from my first-ever interactive experience. Plus, a surprise.
Get you some friends that see your greatness and help you rise to the occasion. Two good friends of mine created an incredible event celebrating black women called The Collection. They define The Collection as a group of like-minded people capable of more together than alone. There was fashion, music, food, and many amazing women showcasing their businesses. I was grateful to be a part of The Collection by bringing awareness to Purposely You with an interactive experience to help people connect deeply with themselves.
The event's theme was I AM ENOUGH, which is essential to know and innerstand as we journey through life. The Purposely You Experience was all about affirming to each person that they are enough. I've never done an interactive experience before, so while preparing for the event, I was figuring things out as I went along. I decided to section my booth off with room dividers so one would get distracted by their surroundings. Behind the room dividers was a hand-painted mirror me, noise-canceling headphones, and my phone with the audio recording on it. Very simple and minimalistic. Each person had to look at themselves in the mirror and into their eyes as the audio played in their ears. I told each person not to break eye contact because I wanted people to be locked into themselves as they said the positive affirmations. The audio experience is about five minutes and thirty seconds. I didn't want it to be too long. After each person was done with the experience, I chatted with them and asked their thoughts. Everyone enjoyed it! Some shed some tears, and others were deeply shocked because they had never looked into their eyes like that before, but everyone left feeling empowered and reassured that they were enough. My heart is so full, and I am genuinely grateful to everyone that attended the event and supported The Purposely You Experience. Thank You!😁
I can't leave you all out, and you don't get a chance to experience it, too, so here you go — The Purposely You Experience!
What You'll Need:
A mirror, a quiet space, your phone, maybe some headphones, and you.
Stand in front of the mirror and focus on your eyes, do not break eye contact during the audio experience, and breathe. Once you are done, write about the experience in your notebook or journal.
I hope you enjoyed this experience and that it helped you connect deeper with self. Remember, you are the foundation of all that you do. Believing in yourself and seeing yourself as valuable helps you through your journey in life. All of your greatness is inside of you. Now go, be purposely you!
