January 21, 2019
I truly believe we cannot go through this life alone. We are meant to be in community with one another. It’s one of the reasons why I love creating and hosting gatherings so much. I feel called to bring people together. That’s why I enjoyed leading Green Bay’s Rising Tide Society for so long. Watching people meet, interact, and create new connections brings me such joy!
There is a time for big gatherings and a time for smaller gatherings. Yes, it’s fun to get a big group of people together to feed off each other’s energy but I love putting together intentional, well thought-out, and intimate events. These events really make you feel heard and safe so you can share freely. It’s a chance to cultivate true understanding and connection. It’s exactly why I created Rest and Reset 2019 and this past week it all came together.
Last week, I opened my home to nine other women for conversation and goal setting. We gathered around my big, farmhouse table to share our wins from 2018, our goals for 2019, and everything in between. We laughed and cried and cheered each other on. I led everyone in a craft and we created leather keychains with our word for the year so they would serve as a reminder for the next twelve months.
I listened as each amazing woman shared their biggest, craziest goals and witnessed every other woman offering advice for her. We celebrated each other in the best possible way. It truly felt like we were all placed there for a reason. We could offer help or ask questions without fear of judgement. Afterwards, we finished feeling inspired and excited for the year ahead. I could not have asked for a better group of women to spend my afternoon with.
Thank you to everyone who attended. You made this gathering so special. I cannot wait to see what you do in 2019!
