Our Womaze community inspires us every day, so we love highlighting the amazing women who are a part of it. Our first spotlight is on Kim Cronin, the founder of Trulytrueworld.com. We had the opportunity to meet Kim through a series of synchronistic events (while riding together in an elevator) and she is truly a beautiful example of what it means to Womaze.
We loved interviewing Kim to hear about her top tools for life, and we hope our Womaze community enjoys getting to know Kim and her new clothing and accessories line, Trulytrueworld.com.
What is one lesson you’re currently learning?
Kim Cronin: GRATITUDE. You simply cannot be angry and have gratitude simultaneously. When something upsets me, I try to find gratitude in the situation. If I can’t, then I find gratitude elsewhere in my life. Gratitude is as simple as saying “thank you" and it spreads positive energy to the giver and the recipient. I try to remember to give thanks in the morning upon waking and at night before bed.
On Womaze we share a daily Push Motivation, a message to remind you that you are supported and guided. What is one of your favorite quotes or mantras?
KC: I love the daily Womaze Push Motivations. The message always seems to be what I need to hear. I've been known to forward certain ones to family members and friends. One of the most memorable Push Motivations is "Remember when you wanted what you currently have.” That just reinforces the belief that I can manifest anything! As I get older and wiser, I see that goals that I once thought were unattainable were achieved and there is really no limit! The only thing that limits me is my mindset.
What was the inspiration behind starting your company?
KC: The inspiration to start my company, Trulytrueworld.com, began from the desire so many of us have: to make a difference in the world. I couldn't help but notice that there was so much turmoil, negativity, and angry vibes in our current society. It's a challenge to stay positive when our country is arguing with itself and others. I thought, how can I spread a positive message that would be seen by a lot of people? That's when the idea of the t-shirts came into my mind. A t-shirt is probably one of the most common pieces of clothing that is worn by all age groups. I've worked with affirmations for years, so I began to imagine "what would happen if I put positive affirmation on a t-shirt that everyone would see as I walked about my day or I shared on social media? Could I make a difference? Could I put a smile on someone's face just because they wore a tee shirt that said the word SMILE?”
I am still growing and learning and my path is always changing, but for now I hope that I can inspire, spread love, peace, kindness and a smile to others by wearing a simply and positive message. A message that affirms who I am.
What is one thing you’d tell your 17-year-old self?
KC: I would tell my 17-year-old self: “don't sweat the small stuff, have more fun, and dance a lot!"
Who do you want to be known as?
KC: My ultimate goal is to be known as a humanitarian. Until that time, I do the best that I can to be a kind, caring, loving woman with pure motives, generosity and warmth.
What are some of your “top tools” for life?
KC: Like attracts like, so surround yourself with like-minded people. Put good energy out into the universe and you will receive good energy back.
What’s one message you think the world needs to hear right now?
KC: "We all matter AND we can each make a difference!"
