Thursday night I had the chance to celebrate me. I attended the 3rd annual S.O.What! Foundation Love Yourself Event and let me just say it was a much needed experience.
Founder and President Summer Owens started the Love Yourself Event in her home & it has now grown to the point that she needs an event space. This years event was held at The Center At Windchase. The S.O.What Foundation helps to show youth how to say “SO WHAT!” to every challenge that they may face. The foundation also helps young & old overcome obstacles and eliminate excuses hindering individual & family success. This begins by loving yourself.
At the Love Yourself Event guest received complimentary services to remind you to take care of you. I received THE. BEST. massage EVER from On Point Mobile Massage Therapy. When I tell you this man has blessed hands…believe me he does. I also received a facial and purchased some much needed Pampered Chef items. I didn’t get the manicure or the eyebrow arching services, but that’s my loss.
Guest were treated to a taco bar by Chef Chis Beavers, it was delicious. The sounds of Will Davenport, who was simply amazing and a makeup demonstration by MUA extraordinaire Tasha Anders. As impressive as that was the highlight for me was the message by Pastor Ricky Floyd. Now we didn’t have church, because you know there was alcohol being served, but the word was shared. The message was “What does love mean?” here are the high points: Stop comparing, complaining and competing and instead compliment the good in others, consider others and help complete others….That’s LOVE.
I am SO proud of Summer and the work that she does, not just for youth but for anyone that needs to move past excuses. Thank you Summer for reminding me to take the time to LOVE ME.
