As women navigating life in this world, we have a multiple of roles to fill. We work, we parent, we listen, we teach, we work more (whether within or outside our homes), we help, we struggle, we survive. We often find ourselves stretched too thin, overworked, overstressed, overwhelmed and often unfulfilled. We have been living in a world that belittles our natural talents, gifts and abilities, and has undermined our power at every turn.
We are facing extreme and challenging times, and I do not think getting back to “normal” is a viable or a realistic pursuit. Instead, we must ask ourselves which parts of yesterday do we want to keep and bring with us? And how can we actively participate in creating what we want our today and our tomorrows to be?
