When women connect and genuinely support each other, it's beautiful! And it creates a truly beautiful life.
I choose to have spaces filled with
1. Acceptance. We are all different, on different journeys, with different struggles. I used to be extremely judgmental but as I grew in my faith, God showed me my true self. How can I judge someone when I myself I'm fully human? I have learned to meet people where they are and ask others to do the same of me.
2. Vulnerability: I believe in the paradox of human perfection. We can be both works in progress and masterpieces at the same time.
3. Affection: I was not the most affectionate growing up, but I am learning to open myself up more and more. To give and receive from the heart space and not from the head space.
Hope: I believe in possibility. I live by faith. I refuse to be hopeless just to conform. I'm not afraid to dream big. I'm also not afraid to fail. I don't care how futile something looks, I believe in the audacity of hope and the power of active faith. Let's go make amazing things happen!
This is what you will find in the Refresh Leadership Circle.
In my spaces, I refuse to tolerate
1. "throwing shade" - let's call it what it is, contempt. You only need to knock someone down when you yourself don't feel like you are enough.
2. Gossip, especially cruel gossip. I don't need to know what her husband does or what makes her cry. Don't tell me. Tell God. Cry out on her behalf. Talking about the darkness in other people's lives only invites it into yours.
3. Passive-aggressive behavior. I don't do "beef". I don't eat it either. Just speak your mind and let's deal or let's move on. Grown women use their voices and aren't afraid to be honest
4. Cruelty. I can't be close to cruel people. I was talking to a young woman recently who said something casually cruel to another young lady. I spoke plainly and called it what it was. She said "it was the truth". I said it was a "truth" that was intended to wound her friend. I warned her that cruelty attracts cruelty and if a little yeast leavens all the dough. A little cruelty here and there and soon it becomes a way of life.
You won't find this in the RLC.
