Last night I spent my time in the company of 100 other women. We danced together. We laughed together. We met new friends, and so much more. It was an overall wonderful celebration of women supporting other women, and I kept looking around the room as the event program proceeded and thought: Sisterhood Rocks!
You know what kind of sisterhood I am talking about. The supportive, positive, encouraging, and non-judgemental kind. The kind of women relationships that GIHY is all about. It gives me goosebumps when I think about it. You see, when I am not writing or speaking for GIHY, I work with a women’s organization called, Plaid for Women, on contract as their events manager. It allows me to use some of my talents that I don’t get to otherwise, and it goes hand in hand with my mission here at GIHY. Women supporting other women! There is nothing better!
At last night’s event it was a celebration of women in history, as well as, a program with dynamic panelists speaking about how every one of our voices deserve to be heard. We listened to the challenges women face in their careers, the struggles trying to create balance in our lives, and so much more. It was real women, talking candidly about real issues, and it was awesome!
I wanted to share this experience with you to give you a little bit of a peek inside what I sometimes do when I am not blogging or traveling, as well as, remind you that YOU are supported. YOU are encouraged. YOU are part of a sisterhood that rocks! Even if you don’t feel it on any particular day, always know that Girl, I Hear Ya (just like Plaid for Women) is a place for you to be heard. A place for you to be yourself and to share your dreams that are scary to say out loud sometimes.
I welcome dialog. I want to hear from you. If you ever have any questions for me, or just want to let me know what is going on in your life that you might need a little encouragement on, please reach out to me. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tap into the sisterhood!
Have a wonderful weekend my friend. I am thinking of you.
