We live in a fear-based culture. It’s in our daily lives. It’s in our conversations about politics and “social ills.” Hell, it may as well be in our drinking water! Learn how to move through this climate of fear and create a life that is built on joy, curiosity, and exploration.
I’ve noticed a troubling trend in the “feminine empowerment” community and among women in general: We say that we are committed to lifting each other up and helping every single sister shine…but many of us are stuck in the old ways of relating to each other. This includes fearful, scarcity-based thinking that keeps us in conflict and competition rather than the connection we yearn for. So what does true empowerment look like, and how can we model it in our work and our relationships?
Motherhood is one of the most powerful words (and experiences) I can think of. We recently reached out to our community on social media to see how they personally define the word “motherhood.” Throughout this blog are some of their most heartfelt responses.
I love women: their wisdom, their strength, their courage, and all that they do to build up the people around them and contribute to a world that is more beautiful, righteous, and capable of holding our dreams. I built my organization on the conviction that when women share their hearts, minds, and souls with the world, every single one of us transforms for the better. That’s why I’m inviting you to celebrate International Women’s Day. All around the globe, women and men will honor the she-roes whose work, both celebrated and unsung, makes the world go ‘round. Women For One will definitely be celebrating, and I encourage you to make your voice count on this important occasion.
Let’s all agree to give ourselves the invaluable gift of peace and presence this holiday season. To do this, simply commit to taking a little time each day to pause, breathe, and move into gratitude in the weeks leading up to 2016.
Every day, I ask myself a simple question: What brings me peace and joy in the moment I’m in? Is it my kids’ presence? Is it my new pup? My relationships? Usually I can attribute some of my happiness to them, but truly, I have a choice every moment of every day to decide what I want to feel.
Are you tired of being told a lie that many in the new age movement perpetuate? We are in a time of transformation. Every moment we have a choice about how to live.
