I’ve been so excited for today. The AWE Living in Love program is a vision I’ve been seeing in my mind and heart for a very long time. The more I stay connected with women (especially when I feel vulnerable and scared to reach out), the deep
er my friendships get, the more intimate and fulfilling my relationship with my husband gets and the more I feel free, alive and comfortable in my own skin. And I want that for all of you, and all women!
And to tell you the truth, in this moment I feel nervous and exhausted! I’ve been working non-stop, with a whole team of people, to get our website and online forum up today. When I woke up this morning and our new website wasn’t yet live I felt my heart sink. In that moment I felt like I’d failed.
But it’s not true! For one thing, my worth is not based on what I accomplish. And so this didn’t go perfectly. What ever does? That does not mean I’ve failed!
I used to think there would be a day when I became the “perfect woman.” Well, that hasn’t happened yet either ;)
And I now see that the “perfect woman” doesn’t exist. Every woman I’ve ever met feels vulnerable, scared, angry and alone at times. And as time goes on I see that it is less and less about being “perfect” and more and more about being me – with everything I feel, think, want, resist, love….staying connected with others in the midst, rather than hiding or pulling away. That is where true intimacy happens.
I am committed to being vulnerable with you. And I want this to be a place where each of you is supported and loved when you are vulnerable!
I’m in Vancouver this weekend for a workshop that starts tomorrow. So I’m going to go out in the world and take a break for a few hours because I deserve it! (And so do you! We all work too hard these days!) When I work too hard I feel dull and dried up and that’s not how I want to be!
Here’s to living juicy, alive, inspired and deeply connected!
