Saying goodbye to what I thought was my life’s dream and also my IDENITY was pretty tough for a girl that thought she had it all. She had a Pink Cadillac and nothing could stop her! Everyone noticed, everyone saw the ICONIC symbol of success. It gave her power, fame, fortune, and a false sense of security. It was my dream to become a National Sales Director to the Soul Sisters Area and I could see the finish line right in front of me. Sprinting. Striving. Sweating. Stressing. At the time, it all felt worth it to fulfill the mission I was on. (I was driving Cadillac’s in my dreams)
My eyes were blinded and I thought I had it all figured out, but God had a much better plan that I wasn’t able to see with my clouded perception. I can remember the very moment when my heart changed and I feared I would have to let my precious Soul Sisters down, but I also knew leading by example and living out what my heart was telling me was what I had to do to help change their lives as well. I had a lot of tough conversations but I also had some I will never forget. I loved my PINK CADILLAC but I loved my people more. It was an IDOL and it had to come down.
As I sold my Pink Cadillac and the new owner drove away, even my youngest daughter was in turmoil. She asked us, “Momma, how are people going to know your still a Soul Sister?” I then answered her, “Baby girl, your adorable but I will always be a Soul Sister, Pink Cadillac or not.” I realized at that moment that even my daughter had connected this piece of metal to my very Identity, what an ATROCITY. Thank God for his grace that allowed my blinders and clouded vision to be removed. After eight years finding my identity in driving a Pink Cadillac, and then letting it go…. ended up being my FREEDOM.

My Freedom Song: Trust in you by Lauren Daigle
Trust In You
Letting go of every single dream
I lay each one down at your feet
Every moment of my wandering
Never changes what you see
I try to win this war
I confess, my hands are weary, I need your rest
Mighty warrior, king of the fight
No matter what I face you’re by my side
When you don’t move the mountains
I’m needing you to move
When you don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When you don’t give the answers
As I cry out to you
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in you
Truth is you know what tomorrow brings
There’s not a day ahead you have not seen
So let all things be my life and breath
I want what you want Lord and nothing less

It is because I spoke from my heart and Jenny was with me so that makes things even better! She is such a blessing
I was shocked to see it go. I hurt for you not to have it. It signified success and hard work. Very hard work. But you can buy what you want now. And a car does not really mean anything. It is a tool you use. It is not who you are. To love it and worship it is indeed idolatry. Thanks for sharing. We love you.
I have only met you once… the Cadillac didn’t impress me it was that glow for life I saw in your face! Keep shining!
Your seriously the best!!! Thanks so much for your encouragement!
WOW, this really touched my heart! All those long hours and your hard work … I often wondered how you ever did it!! But I know you grew tremendously during those years, and I grew too with my grandkids, and you are now able to move in directions you may have never thought about before! So proud of you for taking such a Giant Step and listening to the Lord!
I love this and you. You sure are a one of a kind women! Pink Cadillac or not no one can take away who you are on the inside!!!
Congratulations on letting go and starting new beginnings 💕
I wouldn’t be half as strong if it weren’t for your beautiful mother and you for helping me focus on what’s important and I adore you all so much! Time to go back to CABO BABY!
Consider reading our stories at http://www.pinktruth.com. You will find healing there. It sounds like the pink fog is lifting as it has for so many thousands upon thousands of us.
Congratulations on seeing MK for the scam it is. They do NOT empower women.
Just curious how you “sold” the car to a new owner when you don’t actually OWN the vehicle but lease it thru MK.
I did actually own my Pink Cadillac and had the title for it! When my team had earned the 4th Cadillac I knew I wasn’t going to push my team for Cadillac production so I took the cash instead of going to a car party. I called the company and got the buy out amount on the car I was driving and paid $24,500 for the car a year ago so it was 100% mine then sold it last month for that exact amount to a Cadillac Sales Director who had wrecked her Pink Cadillac!
