Last night I volunteered to work at this event created by KC Bakers School for the Well Spoken Woman.
I thought it would be empowering and inspiring to hear women speak about that which empowers them. And I was right. It would be. If I was in the auditorium listening. Which for most of the night I wasn’t. I volunteered for door duty. That meant I was the muscle making sure people didnt come and go in the middle of the speeches.
But that was ok. Because I was inspired anyway… By the women who joined me in the hallway. And by the women I did get to see-
The recipient of their “thought leader of the year” award was Regina Thomashauer.
You may know her as Mama Gena and she is inspiring thousands upon thousands of women to live their dreams and find their passion. She is so high energy- so self confident- living in such a way that celebrates her womanhood that you can’t help but be infected by her passion.
So, ya know what I did? I introduced myself to her, twice. And I told her my story. And about The MUCHNESS. And she gave me a tremendous hug and told me to keep doing what I’m doing. I told her I have no choice. This is my calling.
And then, I went over to KC Baker. She founded and hosts the event. I’d been in touch with her “people” in advance and knew that she’d been to this site and loved the MUCHNESS Bands. So, after introducing myself and showing her my band, I actually gave it to her.
The quote inside was “It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined.” – which is basically the message of her classes.
And besides, it, like, totally matched her outfit!
I am on this MUCHNESS finding journey and somedays I feel empowered and some days I feel confused and lost. But it’s women like this who remind me that it’s ok to feel whatever I feel and just allow those feelings to be my guide and be my fuel. I remember that I don’t have to know the path laid out before me. I just need to put on foot in front of the other and the path will form. And it is my goal to use my voice to take what i learn from inspiring women and share it with you and learn it with you.
I look forward to doing more of that.
