"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves
to be deeply seen and known,
and when we honor the spiritual connection
that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection."
ChicaPeeps.com is a place where women share their stories of the special bond girlfriends create. Where women can gain strength and support from each other. A couple days ago Chica Peeps founder, Veyla Jancz-Urban asked me to be their guest blogger. I have to say I felt pretty darn special. It didn't take long, however, for the negative voices in my head to begin their chatter. "Who do you think you are?" came through loud and clear.
But then I thought about the Brene Brown interview I'd heard on NPR last Sunday. I decided to feel my vulnerability and write anyway. Who do I think I am? I'm a woman with a story to tell. And you know what, that's enough.
It helped that my subject is one that I've become passionate about. I want to do all I can to help spread the word about It's Our Mission. Period and the menstrual kits they make for girls in Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi and Haiti.
I'd love for you to go on over and check out the Chica Peep site. Read the stories about the special relationships women have and while you're there read my post. (Toot! Toot!). And while you're at it, visit It's Our Mission, too.
Wishing for you courage to be vulberable,
