Hello, I am Shameka. Welcome to Meek Life, where I share my journey towards wellness and a meek life. I think the word meek is also seen as a word parallel with weakness. However, I believe being meek means submitting to life’s lessons and growing from them. So, I am going to share some of the mental, physical, and spiritual lessons I have learned or are currently learning. Music has a constant presence in my life, and I consider it crucial to my overall wellness. Therefore, many blogs will have an accompanying playlist. I hope you will leave with something new, whether it’s an idea, recipe, or a new song to vibe to.
I am a “southern girl”, as Frankie Beverly would say, from a small town in the Black Belt of Alabama called Georgiana. From there, God led me to my second home in Birmingham, AL at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). At UAB, I earned my Bachelor’s in Nursing, a Master’s in Nursing concentrating in Family Primary Care and Rural Health, and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Nursing. I have medical/surgical, gynecology/oncology, and family primary care clinical experience in both urban and rural areas. However, my passion lies in rural and underserved populations. I am building on this passion through my research focus of pediatric sleep health disparities.
I truly feel like I am living out parts of my dreams and purpose, and through this blog, I hope to inspire you to seek yours. If you have any questions, requests, or prayer needs please feel free to complete the contact form below.
