Are You Nice with Yours or What?

Asha Tarry, Life Coach

If you remember me telling you a couple of blogs back that we would parallel “The Carters” album with some of the incredible (I believe I actually said “outstanding” lol) lessons I’ve learned about doing this thing called life, while also managing a business, then you remember me telling you that I am using their soundtrack as the backdrop for describing a few of the ways living while operating a business has changed my sense of who I thought I was and am becoming. As I continue thinking about those lessons, I want to invite you into a shared space with me where you will be assessing your personal or professional goals and wins. I mean, what would this Village be if we weren’t celebrating all of us, right? So, today, we’re going to play this game I made up called “what are you nice at?” It’s my ode to hip hop, using slang from the culture. Take a moment to pause (if you have to, because some of you are just so dope you may not need it) and think about yourself and the areas of your life that you go on doing every day but rarely acknowledge. And when you remember those things, I want you to use the shared space below to list all of the things we say in hip hop are what you’re “nice” at. And if you say it’s okay, I will share some of those wins with my online community. Are you game? If so, I’ll start with an example. Here goes:

I’m nice at building a trailblazing enterprise my community and other women-owned businesses can be proud of.

Ok, it’s your turn:

  • I’m nice at:
  • I’m nice at:

  • I’m nice at:

  • I’m nice at:

Did you run out of lines yet? Share this with someone you know. Ask them, “what are you nice at?” and if they don’t understand, break it down for them. Tell them it’s a question about looking inward towards finding their own light and celebrating it. Let’s bask in the goodness of life, Village and the gifts we’ve be given. Be nice with yours.

Until next time Village, tell a friend to tell 5 friends to subscribe to this blog. And as always, come back for more.
