I am joyous. Tonight, five amazing women converged on my home (six, if you include me) to connect and to unite. It was wonderful! It was the first meeting of the Joyful Living Group. It was a fabulous opportunity to meet other women who are interested in the same thing I am: being a "better person". Hmm, what does that mean? Well, so far we have defined it as discovering what is stopping us from the joy that is possible. Pretty good, huh? We are well on our way to creating the outrageous lives we are looking for. For me that looks like: losing 40 pounds, having a regular intimate relationship with my husband, letting my little girl grow into the person she wants to be- with out my fears and shortcomings shaping her decisions. That last one is the one that gets me. It gets me right in my chest, tightens it right up and makes my throat burn. I would give anything for her to grow into the kind of person who makes choices from being empowered rather than from fear. It is my most important goal. I plan to use the Joyful Living Group to accomplish just that, and I intend to support others to achieve the same- if that's what they are looking for.
Tonight was wonderful because we laid the ground work for open and honest communication and we even practiced it a little. It was wonderful because all of the women who showed up were willing to put themselves out on the table in a way (I say) doesn't exist in the 'real world'. I can't wait to see them all again!
If you're local and you're a woman, you're invited to this fabulous event. We'd love to have you. Leave me a comment on this post and I'll get you the information.
I have to thank my wonderful friend Danor again, without her I wouldn't have manifested this group. She has a wonderful little blog too! I recommend checking it out, her last post is quite powerful...
On that note (Ha! You thought I'd get through a blog post with out posting a picture of my most favorite person) here is a little love for ya!
