This month Frankly Speaking is focusing once again on phenomenal women and how we embrace and manage our universal experiences, our rainbows and clouds, and our courage and resolve.
We are a journey, not a destination, a process, not an event. Even when we are still, we are motion, loving, serving, nurturing, encouraging, and empowering. We are love and love does. But sometimes, sometimes we get stuck between our no longer the familiar, the habits and our not yet, who we were created to be, and we may ask the question: “Am I enough?”
By the way, the right answer is a resounding YES!
In order for a woman to realize that she is more than a mother, more than a wife, more than what she earns, or what she does to earn a living, she must know her own worth. It means she must test herself and her limits. A woman must learn to describe herself and establish her own expectations for herself. A woman must encourage herself. She must support and nurture herself. She must be willing to be disliked. She must be willing to violate the descriptions and confines placed on her.
This week’s conversation provides an example of one woman who has figured out how to walk in her worthiness as wife, mother of three very busy girls, four pets, and managing physician of her neonatology practice.
Her story feels comfortable and joy filled in the telling and yet reality informs us there must be challenges. Yet she has found a healthy way to separate her circumstances from who she is. Listen and be inspired. It feels like you are having coffee with a friend.Until next time, remember,
You are not alone.
You are not your circumstances.
You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
