Wow, that almost waxed philosophical didn't it? But, it is the truth for when we stop growing, we wither and die.
For sometime now, I've been pondering this idea, as I enter my 50's and start thinking about what my next path might be. I have dabbled in so many different creative things over the years...and thruth be told some not so creative things... that my house is stuffed with too many crafties. I can't bear to part with any of them, I cry but I have come to the realization that this may just be a new stage of growth for me.
If my Mom were to read this, I am sure she would see herself in this part of me....I can say I come by it honestly.. Thanks Mom. It pleases me to have passed on creativity to my son too-- hopefully I don't pass on too much of the pack rat gene :)
But celebrating womahood is so much more. Think, who are your deepest and best friends? I don't get to see my BBF as much as I'd like since we now live in different towns but I do know that I can pick up the phone even if a month or two has gone by and in minutes we'll be in thick of it laughing, crying and chatting picking up where we left off just as though it were yesterday. We are each other's cheerleaders but are not afraid to be brutally honest when it needs doing either. I love her like she was my sister... Oh wait, she is my sister!!
I've also "met" some wonderful lady friends in our Unique Women in Business etsy group and I have to say, even though I've never actually laid eyes on any of them, they are some of the best and most supportive friends a gal could ask for.
Please take some time to visit the blogs of these other Unique Women in Business and see what Celebrating womanhood means to each of them.
