WOMEN EMPOWERING WOMEN SERIES| Featuring Libier Reynolds

Happy Friday!!! This morning I want to introduce you to the FABULOUS Libier Reynolds! She is the blogger behind www.libier.com. She is the prime example of LIFE, HOPE & MAJOR positivity through and through.  When you are in her presence you feel her gratitude and love for life.  Her energy and her faith in God is BEYOND contagious.  I wish you could all grab a cup of coffee with her.  Read more below 🙂

1)As a blogger do you feel more competition or support from your fellow blogger peers? In what way do you receive and give support?!
I have had the pleasure of meeting many fellow, local, bloggers. I’ve loved hearing their hearts and getting to know some of these beautiful women! I have learned from them so much and realized that we all struggle somehow, but it’s through that struggle that breakthrough comes!  I’ve gotten support in the most unexpected places from certain gals and it has touched my heart that someone would want to help me succeed, as some of these blogger friends of mine have done! I will always be grateful for their acts of love and support! And it’s been my experience that most of the gals I’ve met have been uber encouraging to me and my dreams. It’s been so beautiful to experience! However,  I believe that deep down we all struggle with competition. I’d be lying if I said I’ve never felt like someone else had it better than me. Or entertained a comparative thought or two, or twentyfive and a half!  However, I’ve learned that it is not okay to objectify a person. That the “pretty pictures” my blogger friend posts, are not a whole representation of her entire life. That she has ups and downs, just as I do. And that SHE’S probably going through similar feelings of fear and feeling unqualified for the job, as I am! I have realized I am not competing with anyone, I need to chose to encourage rather than discourage other gals, and it starts within me.

2) What does the phrase “Women Empowering Women” mean to you?
To allow one another to thrive in our uniqueness. To liberate ourselves from the oppression and expectation of our society’s standard of what a successful woman “looks & acts” like. To permit each other to be free to BE. To KNOW WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT that another woman’s success does not deter your own. To qualify each other’s strengths whilst having grace over our weaknesses.  Enabling each other to live the life we imagined, through synergy and collaboration. Plain and simple, just loving, without allowing comparison to rob our  joy. I believe that if EVERY woman knew her worth; she wouldn’t entertain the turbulent thoughts of jealousy when feeling threatened by another woman.  She’d be able to chose a different thought and dismiss the fear that she is going to miss out or isn’t worthy of the life she desires.

3) If you could empower women to do one thing what would that be?!
I would empower them to fight for their true identity which, I believe, would help them be free of self-doubt, low self esteem, comparison, jealousy,  and fear (along with many other things!)   That they would know and believe they are ENOUGH as is. Right now! I would tell them that they don’t have to strive or try so hard to impress themselves and others. That they are loved beyond their wildest imagination! That who they are, is special and unique and that they are needed on this earth for a purpose only THEY can fulfill!

Please share 5 random facts about yourself :
1.-  I am a toddler comedian. I LOVE making littles laugh. My husband thinks there’s something there, like I could go on tour and be very successful in a career as such.
2.-  I am a recovered arachnophobic  (You can read how I was able to overcome  HERE)
3.- When I was six I had a job in Mexico bagging groceries and an American couple tipped me with a dollar coin. Coolest day of my life!
4.- I love to dance, act and sing.
5.- God gave me the gift of playing the piano overnight about six months ago….. It was crazy awesome!

I am sad to say that this is the last week for our Women Empowering Women series.  Thank you to everyone who kindly followed along!! We have a lot more fun things planned for Friday’s on the blog! Be sure to check back next week to see what is next!! Much love,

    Love this!! Yet another great post. I love the idea that even though everyone’s life looks perfect on Instagram, it’s important to remember that we all have struggles and no one’s life is perfect. It’s so easy to get discouraged. Love this uplifting series.
