My 80 Year ‘Young’ Gift

Felicia Harlow - My 80 Year Young Gift

On March 12, 2011, I met an 80 year old woman who didn’t look a day over 50! Clearly, she was a woman living a Growth in Motion!!™ lifestyle She was one of the participants at the Women’s Leadership Conference at Clemson University and she contributed lots of wisdom.

I Am a Seed of Greatness!

Felicia Harlow with Students

A seed represents the beginning or starting point of all living things. Inside of the seed is all that is needed to grow into something magnificent. There is nothing to add, subtract or change within the seed to produce its harvest. And the most amazing part is that, given the proper conditions for growth, one tiny seed will produce so much more than itself. To be great is to be massive, to be talented, and to be important. Each and every one of us is born from a seed that already contains … [Read more...]

Having the Courage to be You

Felicia Harlow at UNO

In Latin the term "cor" means heart. In French the term "cour" means to be in the process. And in English the word courage means "the state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger or hardship resolutely." Therefore, when one is said to have courage, she/he is in the process of connecting with her heart (or core self) as challenges arise so that she is able to understand them and take correct action. When we think about someone with courage, oftentimes we think about a … [Read more...]

Felicia Harlow - 11 authentic choices for building inner power

Do you often think about what you want to become or be after college and then feel a fair amount of pressure because you haven’t figured it out yet? Well, to truly grow into what you really enjoy and what makes you happy for no reason at all, you must make small everyday choices that lead to long term satisfaction, peace, and overall success.

Empower your relationships with compassion

Within the word compassion is the word compass. There is also the word passion. When I think of the word compass, I think of a device with a magnetic needle that helps me determine my sense of direction. When I explored the meaning of the word in the dictionary, I also found that compass means to comprehend, to travel entirely around, or to get into one's possession or power. This discovery was like a revelation for me because when I read those words "direction" and tapping into "one's power," … [Read more...]

Take care of yourself for healthier relationships

Felicia Harlow - Mutual Ground Domestic Violence Center

Healthy relationships start with a focus on self-care and well-being. That is the philosophy I shared with Voorhees College students during a visit to their campus. When I asked the question, “What is most important to you in your relationships?” I received answers like trust, communication, love and respect. The idea of practicing self-care as a foundation for healthy relationships appeared to be a new paradigm for them. I can understand, though, because several years ago, it became a new … [Read more...]

[showtime width=640 height=300] A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Coretta Jamison, Women’s Advocate of Voorhees College.

(Prior to my visit, Coretta shared with me that her Thursday programs are … [Read more...]

Understanding yourself leads to internal peace.

Felicia Harlow - Understanding = Internal Peace

Recently, I was perusing the dictionary because I wanted to see what it said about this word "understanding." Some synonyms shared were: comprehend, absorb, appreciate, identify with, empathize, be familiar with, and value. And in the context of personal growth, to understand is to be willing to empathize with others, be in tune with our emotional selves, and to value individual differences - even when we don't agree with them. Thus the process of understanding involves a high level of mental, … [Read more...]

How Does Growth in Motion™ Impact My Life as a College Student?

Felicia Harlow - IAM-U Graduation

Growth is development, evolution, progress, increase, expansion. In short, it means CHANGE. To be in motion means to move, act, engage in an activity, or to shift something. I define “growth in motion” as a phrase that describes a way of being in relationship with oneself. It is a process of living consciously. This means you have to take a very close look at your habits and authentically evaluate which ones are overdue and need to move in a different direction. To be self-regulated, to … [Read more...]
