In this blog, I wanted to write about something that stood out to me as I spent 3 days in the convention – Women. My intention is not to exclude men or to say that men did not make a difference, but I really noticed the shear volume of women present. What stood out to me about them is that they were there for a single cause – to make a difference, whether it was for their families or in the world.
Taking charge of your wellbeing is an empowering feeling, and these women were committed to that. I saw women from all walks of life, of all colors, of all ages and it was beautiful. I saw women who were there with babies as young as 3 weeks old, it was quite a sight.
Many of these women have already made a huge difference in the world like Jessica Gianelloni who goes every year to Uganda in service of orphans. She brings with her, not only her team but also healthy food, essential oils and supplements, money and donation to help these children who have spent most of their lives on the streets. Or on a much smaller scale, the woman who offered for me to sit with her and her family as I was sitting by myself. It was so heartwarming for me as I did not know anyone when I went to the convention.
It was empowering experience for me. These quotes represent what I observed there
“A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.”
“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”
So, all you women out there, keep doing what you do even if it feels insignificant. It MAKES a difference even if you can’t see the results now.
