Don't Call Me Superwoman

“You’re out here being superwoman — doing all the things, then when they expect it from you, you get an attitude.”

Malaika Simmons did not come to play games with y’all in  this episode.  She said if you don’t want to be called superwoman, say it with your WHOLE chest


This conversation was everything I hoped it would be.  Malaika took me on a journey of how she made the transition from the superwoman lifestyle, the challenges that came along with it and how she deliberately resides in a space that doesn’t require her to be anything other than what and who she is.  

The unique thing about her journey is that in order for her to unsuperwoman herself, she had to channel the WONDER WOMAN in her.  Yep! She traded in her cape for bracelets and a lasso.

Now, I know you’re probably asking, so… y’all seriously want me to give up one super human  just to take up another one? 

Yeah…kinda, sorta, but not really!  You to gotta tune in to get the scoop, sis because pouring it out here does NOT do this conversation justice.

So grab a friend, pour up your favorite beverage and press play.

  • Even when you’re doing too much is still not enough
