Over the past two years I've worked consciously to develop a healthy and supportive network of women in my life. Because of those efforts, I've befriended so many amazing, beautiful, strong, empowering women in my local community. I've become closer with other fellow small business women and have begun to truly value my friendships with them. I am filled with gratitude for all they have given me, from professional wisdom to personal encouragement.
In the beginning it was very one-sided, I'll admit. At that time, I needed support and advice during the initial start of my business. I leaned on them for encouragement and strength. I depended on them to have the answers. Added to this new project I was investing in, I was also going through a personal transformation: grieving the loss of a very anxiety-prone relationship, overcoming personal stressors and feeling lonely in the void left from my prior relationship. It was during that time of transformation that I began to heal. It took a lot of focus and self- awareness to get to this breakthrough. Although it was my perseverance and determination that kept me going, I know that I wouldn't have come this far emotionally without these women. They gave me the encouragement and positive reinforcement to keep going because , although I didn't believe them at the time, they said it was going to get easier. I will be forever grateful to these women who guided me through the darkest times and continue to show their love and strength to woman everywhere.
If you follow me on Facebook or instagram I'm sure you've noticed my strong attitude towards women empowerment. I believe that women are beautiful creatures. We are strong, resilient, determined and powerful, all while being nurturing, empathetic, sensitive and intuitive. We have a life-force that can change the world, if harnessed properly.
I encourage all women to create their own 'tribe' as I have done; a group of women that you can lean on and offer mutual support and understanding; share ideas and dreams, celebrate life with.
Throughout the month I have celebrated Women's History Month (March) by honoring the women that have made a difference in our lives through innovation, civil rights, creativity etc. Please feel free to follow my instagram page and this blog where you can follow not only my business, but my personal diary throughout life's journey.
Namaste. 'the divine light in me honors the divine light in you.'
