Survivors Helping Survivors

My friend, Michelle, recently got married! She lives in the U.K. We are both part of a community created by The Missing Piece book series... this is a group of compassionate and passionate women who love to assist others, hoping to inspire others to reach greatness by sharing our particular life journeys and the pathways leading to success. This book was released in December 2013.

The next anthology in this series was released in March 2014. In this book, we shared business strategies and the practices and beliefs that propelled our personal business success. Michelle and I wrote our chapters, as well as 24 other wonderful authors.

Just when things were going exceedingly well, my friend ran into a blip....this is the type of blip one is never prepared for and does not voluntarily seek out.  You see, interpersonal violence can be devastating. It shows no mercy and spares no can happen to any one of us, at anytime.

So I am asking YOU, if you can do anything to support this amazing…

Debra SeS: Deal with it!!

This is me, so deal with it!

no longer will I pretend to like the clothes you like, especially when I think they are ugly...

no longer will I lie to protect you, you deserve to know the truth...

no longer will I be "NICE" so your feelings don't get hurt, they are your feelings and you are in charge of them...

no longer will I allow you to speak for me, I have my own voice...

no longer will I watch sporting events non-stop every weekend, when I prefer to read a book...

no longer will I wear my hair long,because I love my short hair!

no longer will I live in fear of your opinion, my opinion matters more to me...

Look out now, I have put on my BIG GIRL Panties, so you will have to deal with it!!

Always Yours,

Debra K. Adams, MA

Debra SeS & 2014 Rock the Red Pump® (#RocktheRedPump) Campaign!

Do we need a reason to wear red pumps? Maybe and maybe not....
NOW, we have your attention, let's talk  about HIV/AIDS and its impact on women and girls.

On March 10, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD).

Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls.

Why is it important to learn as much as we can about HIV/AIDS?

HIV/AIDS in the United States
There are currently 1.1 million adults and adolescents in the United States living with HIV.Approximately 1 in 6 people (15.8%) who are infected with HIV do not know that they have been infectedTop ten states with the highest rates HIV/AIDS diagnosis are California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia.  1 in 13…

Debra SeS: International Women's Day & Women's History Month

International Women's Day -

March 8 is the day we celebrate everything about being a woman - isn't that fun??

International Women's Day started in 1909 and is a national holiday in many countries!

Below is Rosie the Riveter, have you ever seen this image? This image of Rosie is iconic for women in the USA. There really is a woman who inspired this image - she worked in the factory when all the young US men went to World War II. The sad part of the story is that she lost her job when the men came home...that is when women starting looking for other work and professions, beyond wife and mother.  Yes, that is right, this is when we discovered we could have it all.

It is very appropriate we have the day on March 8, because March is the month we celebrate our history, which I love to call Herstory! Ever wonder why we began marking March in this manner?  Well, click this link, and you will discover the reason!

The Missing Piece & Debra K Adams, MA

I am so proud of my accomplishment for 2013. I always wanted to write a book and this was the way for me to get started.

My Missing Piece?
ONE of 27 women/authors, from around the world, I share a lesson
learned based on my most profound life experience -- aftermath of a
violent marriage.  Searching for my true self led me to the study of authenticity.

Debra SeS: Love Yourself First!!!

Self Empowerment Strategies
Let's talk rose petals, right?  Hmmmm, I think the saying really goes like this, "Let's talk turkey!"  Since I don't know where that cliché comes from, I co-opted it, for my own use. Besides that, rose petals are much prettier, much softer, and much more fragrant. 
Roses are such a beautiful flower. There are national parks & gardens and week(s) long celebrations dedicated to the rose. I live near Portland, OR, where we have a Grand Floral (Rose) Festival every June. Don't forget the Pasadena, CA, Tournament of Roses Parade and football game on every First of January, either.
I want to propose a Self empowerment Strategy for you to consider implementing.
Think about how you take care of your roses (or other favorite blossom/plants). You keep them watered, and fertilized, if necessary. You place them in a beautiful container that enhances their presence. You showcase them in a special room, on a special surface, in special light.…

My Wild and Whacky Week

Yes, it has been that kind of week! for me, at least.....

As an activist / advocate / radio show host / speaker / author, it has been jam packed with events and causes and issues!

Last Monday, I put on my Program Director and Co-founder hat for the National Women's Coalition Against Violence and Exploitation to attend a meeting with a group of volunteers who may possibly select our nonprofit as the beneficiary of their fundraising event!  That was exciting because we have not found a 'niche' event to become our annual event. I found it invigorating to answer their questions and absorb their enthusiasm, too. What a great way to start off the week.

Tuesday is my radio show... named "Debra SeS" on Bold Radio Station on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm PST. I always look forward to meeting the guest and the sharing of information we exchange. Guess what? My guest was a "no show." Goodness, what is a girl to do?  Well, the show must go on, you know, so I jumped into it …
