I am woman.
I am strength personified, with magic in my eyes, melanin that glows, and jiggle in my thighs.
I am imperfect in so many ways, and yet, I represent the space where ordinary and extraordinary combine.
Human and divine.
I am simple yet complex,
Intellectual and creative,
Faithful and logical,
I am both rational and irrational– some may say that doesn’t make sense.
I am a dancer and a speaker,
An author and a teacher
I am a dream chaser.
I am (finally) a primary investor: in ME.
I sow seeds; I am a believer.
I believe in uplifting my sisters, raising up my fellow man.
Call it naive if you must, but I believe we ALL can win.
I am the voice of those who feel they can’t,
I am the voice that whispers, “you can!”
Yes, I am the voice that compels others to raise theirs. Loudly.
I am curvy, confident and curly headed.
I am caring, compassionate and creative.
I am fearful at times, yet fear less.
I am uniquely made; I am eclectic.
I am enough (as I am, and as I grow).
Forgiveness is my weapon of choice, coming second only to my voice.
I am a faith walker, big talker
Unafraid and unashamed to speak of how GREAT He is.
I speak life,
With effervescence dripping from my pores,
Undeniable radiance beaming through every door He opens for me
I am a defeatist– reborn
Transformed by faith, armored with His word
Gifted with movement,
These very limbs, once tired and worn
Now adorned with power and favor.
Truth speaker, light seeker, servant leader
I am Whitney McNulty,
And you are welcome here.
Whitney McNulty is an author, choreographer, mental health advocate and empowerment speaker. Her recently published book of poetry, Awakenings is more than a literary work– it is a call to action. It challenges readers to get “unstuck;” to get out of that rut, dark hole, depression, anxiety or that constant feeling of mediocrity and just LIVE. Whitney works to empower everyone she encounters to live a healthier, more ABUNDANT, and purpose driven life filled with light and love. By sharing her story, she hopes to encourage others to actively seek self-acceptance, tend to their spiritual needs and choose not to just exist but THRIVE. Whitney is currently a dual youth ministry leader, holds a M.A. in General/Experimental Psychology, has training in Applied Behavior Analysis, and is excited to begin her #BookBreakthrough coaching services and hosting her Awakenings Empowerment Werkshops this upcoming September 2017.
