This week we are excited to sponsor Ladies Night Out, “Path to Breakthrough……in Pink Suede Stiletto’s.” I am excited to share this event with our community of ladies and learn additional strategies to lean into the individuals we were each created to be. It has taken me years of wisdom gathering to truly understand how to embrace and steward my own unique gifts. We are not all the same, and when we live life to the fullest, we gain an understanding of what we value and how that aligns with our goals. The significance of this is driven by the fact we do not know how long we get in life to achieve this fulfillment. My mom is currently battling breast cancer for the second time. Initially, her prognosis was not good; however, she has learned how to live with the disease despite any “bad days.” She told me that her purpose of being a champion of others has not been fulfilled, so she will live each day the best she can. She is an inspiration to me and a role model for seeking preventative care regularly. Please join me in wearing pink on Thursday in recognition of all people who are battling cancer or struggling with determining how their unique gifts can enrich their lives. Break out those pink shoes (stilettos optional), and come share an evening of fun with me!
