Octavia Reese

Hi, I’m Octavia.

I’m a multi-disciplined polymath (that means both-brained and has nothing to do with my relationship status or romantic points of view – something I learned the hard way, thank you, Internet dating!) with a passion to make a difference in my world and lift up my neighbors to their own greatness.

I’m an artist, an author, a dancer, a parent, a cellist, a singer, a lover, a dreamer, an entrepreneur, an idea lady, a creative, a scientist, an empath, a reader, a designer, a people-helper, a people-lover, a vessel of my ancestors, a woman of God.

As a former beauty queen, former pastor’s wife, and current full-time working, city-dwelling mother of three, I have my hands extremely full and a lot of emotional scars that need healing.  In order to juggle the weight of the world and the burns of my past, I have to make sure that I’m taking care of myself.

And so, as I am learning to love myself, listen to my inner voice and be aware of my own needs, as I call, my Road to Relovery, I’ve also learned that there is a universal aching among women. I’ve learned that I’m part of a secret sisterhood of miserable beauties – drowning in unhealthy relationships, sinking in self-doubt and self-loathing, and barely keeping it all together, not only for ourselves but for our families, too.

So this project is as much for myself as it is for you. For the women silently suffering. For the women that aren’t seeing their unique and radiant beauty when they look in their mirrors. For the women that put everyone first and don’t stop to think about themselves.

So speak, woman. And think about yourself. See yourself. Validate yourself. Love yourself.

The only way to bounce back after extreme loss and emotional trauma, whether it is that of life or a relationship or a dream version of yourself, you have to regroup, reboot, and rebuild. And you will flourish.


Remember, the heartache is temporary and you are stronger.

Let’s take this road to relovery together. See you there.
