Ta’lor L. Pinkston, MSW|Founder + CEO of LADYHOOD journey|Self-love Coach|Clinician|Inspirational Speaker|Body-Positive Model
In 2015, I suffered from a minor depression while I was pregnant with my daughter. At the time, I was a recent master’s graduate, living in a one-bedroom apartment, low-income; I was fired from my employer at the time while on an unpaid maternity leave and in a toxic relationship that I did not know how to end.
I hated myself for bringing my daughter into a world that I did not prepare to have her in.
I learned so much about myself during that life-transition, but when my daughter was born, she showed me my strength and that I was caring more for my relationship than I was for myself. I was settling for less than my heart + soul desired and for the first time I admitted to myself that I did not love myself.
There is pain in my self-love.
LADYHOOD journey started as a blog that was a therapeutic healing space that allowed me to reveal my truth + share my story. Overtime it grew into a support for women to help women feel more confident, beautiful, proud, and empowered in their journey’s. After ending my toxic relationship, I received my certification in self-love and have established myself as the Heart Advocate, a mompreneur who is dedicated to the heart of every woman.
Why I Became a Self-love Coach
In my discovery of self-hate, I made a commitment to myself to do something about my fear, doubt, negative self-talk, and shame. Transparency was the foundation for my journey and it led me directly to self-love. The Path of Self-love school is a training and certification program that helped me find the 10 branches of self-love. With this self-love technology, created by Christine Arylo, I have been able to know my worth and help other women do the same.
Self-love is about choosing love, not hate and pouring that love directly to your heart and sharing that love with everyone around you.
I believe in the power that self-love brings to the heart, and all that Christine Arylo has created. She has established a community of lovers and beloveds who know their worth and do not settle for less than their heart and soul desires. That is the power of self-love and that is the gift that I want to give every woman that I connect with.
