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.

NWCAVE


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 with both feet! I spent some radio time talking about taking risks can be scary but very beneficial, no matter your age or your situation! Take a listen to it here  " Debra SeS - Meet Debra!" or click the image below.

Friday was V-Day ! Billion Rising. Read their mission statement if you have NOT heard of it yet. NWCAVE had organized a #1BillionRising Virtual Event for those who could NOT get time away from work & home obligations. I was in charge of 3 of 8 grandkids that day ! No problem, right? I video aped them Rising, Dancing For Justice! We had our own little event in the home. I am helping to raise the next generation of activists, you know!

I even worked on Saturday, prior to our family birthday party for my son and grandson!
It was for such a great cause....A Global Conversation on Human and Sex Trafficking. It was organized by Unite Women, read our mission statement!  I am the UniteWomen Washington State Director

It was sponsored by Authors on the Air Global Radio Network. We had a terrific panel, too. Somehow we managed to be engaged for 2.5 hours! Listen to the podcast, anytime......click the image below.

Fortunately, my frantic schedule did NOT kill me. In fact, it has made me stronger. Strong enough to benchpress a Buick? NO, maybe not.

 Whew... it really has been a fun-filled and very active week!  I remember that old adage, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Of course, I have to give it my personal spin...



Always Your Shameless Agitator,

Debra K. Adams, M.A.

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 one...it 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
