indeed


(184)


How often do you find that the one thing you were resisting held the very thing that you need? This is a truth that smacks me with lessons all the time.

I confess that I resisted Lean In but then a courageous friend suggested I read the book and suggested I go to a meeting and since it was in my hood, I went. And then I went to another meeting last night (not in my hood but that's OK because I needed to drive away). The experience kicked me out of a two day depressive episode (and yes, I need to use this dramatic description for my blues).

Summertime dinnertime should always be a bowl of cherries (amirite, Deonne?) and a breezy summery evening should be spent amongst a group of female leaders who strive through kindness and compassion to change the world. It was a place that provided the support that I am not getting through my own community. It was an opportunity to disconnect from personal woes and see myself as a conduit of charisma and power.

Indeed - it's great to be female.



P.S. Minnesota women are awesome! Check out this personal declaration of independence.

  1. Yes! That sounds like an excellent night, delicious summer fruit and smart women doing good work. Love it. And yes, you are a conduit of charisma and power. Get another bag of cherries and keep it going. : )

    1. I've got cherries, nectarines, plums and mango. I always forget the wonders of summer fruit. Nothing beats that other than the company of smart women!
