Taking responsibility for what is being said to you.
Miriam's story gets interesting just after her 18th birthday when she found out she was pregnant. At graduation Scarlet Rose was 7 days old. That is simply a fact, what you need to know is how Miriam looks at the world. She went into planning mode. She has learned that if she wants to be taken seriously, she doesn't tell people she has a child, because people have lots of preconceived notitions.
Miriam has explored her future in the 5 years since Scarlet was born. She has learned about the challenges of working part-time hours with a child, and figuring out childcare with an irregular schedule. Then she moved on to work in an office, practicing her phone skills, customer service, hiring and employee training. She also learned to practice skills, and challenged herself to continue to learn new things.
Miriam is keen on discovering new things, she attended a workshop sponsored by Futurpreneur Canada that opened new doors for her. She is now in a partnership with Mary Jane Copps - The Phone Lady, offering services for interview and job skills. They are providing supports with Nova Scotia Works to help people get jobs and improve their communication skills.
Miriam has faced many challenges as a women, and she has learned the skills necessary to stand up for herself, to set healthy boundaries, and to call out bad behaviour. Miriam has found strength in taking responsibility for what is being said to her. She knows that their is power in standing up for yourself. She is passionate about communication and overcoming the fear of stepping up.
Miriam still faces the challenges of self doubt and beliefs. She is always seeking tools and resources to support herself as well as her daughter. One of the new tools she is using is the 5 Love Languages - Gary Chapman. You maybe surprised how you can apply these tools in your everyday life.
