Sometimes you need a simple reminder of who you are. Beyond being a mama you were/are more than that. You were and you will forever be (fill in the blank with your name _______) the ONE & ONLY!!!
Welcome! I am Shannon D. Owens. My ultimate goal is for you to embrace this new season of your mid-life which I call your prime time. Depending on how you look at it can either be a crisis or an exciting new adventure! I will humbly support, guide, and instruct you as you get intimately re-acquainted with who are now that your babies are grown and out on their own. By strengthening your emotional intelligence, you will have the resilience and confidence to enthusiastically accept the changes that hit your life whether you wanted them to or not.
I do this by assisting you in addressing your emotions, attitudes, strengths, weaknesses, and character. I also partner with you to sort out the sum of your life experiences up to this point, which may or may not have been how you imagined by using emotional intelligence. Applying EI (which many people in our community have NOT been taught) and having it as your foundation will keep you on track as you go through this wonderful yet unfamiliar mid-life stage. It’s no doubt something that could have helped you during that exciting and sometimes exhausting season of parenting.
The willingness to change your perspective (a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view) relating to this transition and adjust your perception (a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression) is how I will support as you begin to answer your question, “now what?” Understanding how to fill the void of the empty nest with beneficial things vs. those that are not is the key. Remember your feelings are not facts and though it may “feel” like your life is over, useless, or pointless now that you aren’t a full-time mother; the truth is, this is the beginning of a new era of your life and you get to be positively selfish with how you decide to live it.
Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, Shannon went through a life filled with many unexpected twists and turns: domestic violence, abortion, lack of self-worth, single parenthood; and all this was by the age of 18! She believed her worthiness was equal to her mistakes, bad judgment, and poor choices. Seeing her daughters begin to walk in her footsteps gave her a reason to change. She had to rediscover who she was and made herself a non-negotiable priority, in doing so, she realized her passion for helping others get their Groove Back. Now she is dedicated to helping women identify the pri$less masterpieces they are, so they can thrive moving forward.
She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing for Entertainment from Full Sail University, is a Certified Life Coach through Tony Gaskins' Academy, Certified Emotional Intelligence Ambassador through the iNeverworry Academy with D.B. Bedford, and has studied extensively with Coach Kelly J " the Coaches Coach" and most recently Shana Danielle the Thriving Author Coach.
She's a published author of "Rise Up! Be a Saint, Not an A'int," and a self-published author of "Know Your Worth ~ Pri$less" & "I'm Good... Are You Really?"
I had the awesome privilege of being interviewed for ShoutOut Atlanta Magazine.
