In January, I started a monthly Women’s Council gathering.
It is one of the funnest things I’ve experienced in my life.
It is always filled with laughter, bonding, connection, vulnerability, depth, and intention.
I hit up a handful of women around me that I thought might be interested in coming out. When I first sat in the circle, I felt almost weird.
I compartmentalized a lot of my life, not intentionally but that’s the way I’ve lived it, especially regarding relationship. I have friends in different circles and I rarely bring them together.
But in this space, the common denominator was me. And that we’re all women. Lol.
It was definitely a vulnerable place and space for me. But hell, I’d gone through the trouble of putting together a Paperless Post invite and got them in the same house on a Sunday afternoon so might as well go with the program.
And it was beautiful. It was both hilarious and insightful. The connection was and is definitely there. And it continues to grow.
And I have a lot of fun with it too. Feeling the push to create an agenda that speaks to women, that invites their heart and strength to show up as they are. Facilitating a space for vulnerability, freedom, and reflection. Trying things out, see how they fit – or don’t.
I am blessed to be able to try what I’m trying. I am blessed to be surrounded by kickass women. I am blessed to connect with likeminded humans. I am blessed they are willing to spend their Sunday afternoon with each other, and especially, with themselves.
Life is fun.
