What do you need right now?
This was the question I asked every woman who attended the PurposeGirl Sisterhood Circle on Thursday night, and the response was extraordinary.
Nearly 20 women gathered – a beautiful equal mix of black, brown, and white Sisters of different nationalities and religions – and we all wanted the same things: Love, space to share honest real raw feelings, connection, healing, support, and conversation.
So we loved all over each other.
When women cried about wanting a different world for our children, we all cried and vowed to make it different for them.
When women shared that they were exhausted after fighting for equal rights for decades and feeling hopeless, those of us newer to the effort said we'd carry the torch, do our part, and hold space for hope.
When women needed to be heard and witnessed, we listened and honored them.
When women said that they want to do more and have courage to speak, we told them we believed in them and shared resources.
I was blown away by these Sisters' bravery and honesty, and how real conversation between open-hearted women was so healing.
Every woman on that call was on Purpose – whether for her children, her clients, the Black community, herself, and the world at large – and it was glorious!
As they all hung up saying they felt grateful, hopeful, supported, and full of love, it was a reminder for me why I created PurposeGirl: I don't know about every issue that's needed to change the world, but I do know how to bring women together who each have their unique purposes so that together we heal, we RISE, and we make this world better!
More than ever, I'm convinced that Sisterhood is needed for healing.
I'm certain that Women's love will advance equal opportunity for all.
I'm sure that Women on Purpose will change this world for good.
As I've been feeling into how I serve you, support our PurposeGirl community, speak up for equality and take care of my very pregnant self (3 weeks to go!) all at the same time, I realize that I can best help by continuing to take a stand for every single one of YOU living your true purpose.
The world needs us now, Sister. The world needs your gifts, your voice, your wisdom and power.
A power outage kept me from releasing a new PurposeGirl Podcast episode on Thursday, but this weekend I released an episode from my heart about why Black Lives Matter – to me, to us all. I share about how I feel thinking about bringing my baby boy into the world and what I see for all of us PurposeGirls. I also share resources I've been using to learn and be an active Anti-Racism advocate.
And I remind us all why we need to be the Goddesses on Purpose we were born to be. Listen here.
Baby is coming in 3 weeks, and as he's cooking in my belly, I'm cooking up something for you all to discover, elevate, and RISE in Purpose right now. Stay tuned, Sisters…
I love you!
