FemmePowered celebrates another birthday today. I’m so thankful for all the places, people and experiences that this little blog and ever-growing community has brought me. I’m living proof that you can turn any mess into a message, build a platform, find your purpose but more importantly, create a community.
On this anniversary, I spent the morning with a circle of women. And it was a literal circle too, as we sat around the huge round table of a friend. We had coffee, cake, laughs and shared our hearts with each other. Some of these woman have come through incredible storms, some navigating the maze of parenting in a technological age, and others just shared their words of wisdom. As I will always say, beautiful things happen when women come together in a spirit of love and openness. For me, it was a soulful and refreshing experience.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. FemmePowered continues to grow and evolve because of you. Our first retreat comes up on December 30-31st. Seven amazing women will spend time together at beach house, releasing and unleashing for 2017 and beyond. I am excited more than words can possibly convey. What an amazing way to end the year. Retreats, workshops and so much more is already in the pipeline line for 2017.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. Hugs and air kisses to you all 🙂
