Today’s Inspirational Women Wednesday feature is highlighting Ms. Shelah Marie, an actress, online personality, and creator of the amazing movement based in South Florida, Curvy, Curly, Conscious. Shelah’s Instagram page bio includes the words, “I help people help themselves.” And based on her ever-growing “tribe” of followers, and the overflow of love in her comments section, she does just that! Shelah inspires me because she is living in her purpose by teaching self love to women of all shades, shapes, and sizes; and sharing methods that have helped her to heal from past wounds in hopes to heal the wounds of others. I am happy to share her interview with you today and I hope that you enjoy! 🙂
YOUR NAME AND PROFESSION
Shelah Marie, Actress, Meditation Enthusiast
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU DO.
I entertain, I perform, and I help women find avenues to live happier, healthier lives.
WHAT PUSHED YOU TO START YOUR MOVEMENT, CURVY, CURLY, CONSCIOUS? WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THIS MOVEMENT?
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING YOGA AND MEDITATION? AND HOW HAVE THE TWO CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
I was introduced to meditation around 2007, but I started practicing regularly in 2013. I started practicing yoga in 2014. I love yoga and meditation as a pair because they work together. In yoga, I learn to sit through discomfort. And in meditation, I learn to sit with myself.
WHAT DOES THE SAYING “POSITIVE VIBES ONLY” MEAN TO YOU?
WHAT (OR WHO) INSPIRES YOU? ON DAYS WHEN THINGS SEEM TOO STRESSFUL, WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED?
I’m inspired by my tribe (my followers on social media) because they’re kind, intelligent, thoughtful and so supportive. I’m also inspired by women like Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, and I actually adore Cardi B.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
Relax. I promise you it willl be okay. Lol
BONUS: SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE THE CUTE PICTURES OF YOU AND YOUR BOYFRIEND ON YOUR INSTAGRAM PAGE. ESPECIALLY THE YOGA PICTURES! HOW DID YOU GET HIM TO BECOME INTERESTED IN YOGA AS WELL? (I’M ASKING FOR A FRIEND LOL)
WHERE CAN OUR READERS FIND YOU?
THANKS SO MUCH, SHELAH!
