"You take it all in. You let the pain of the world touch your heart and you turn it into compassion." Pema Chodron, When Things Falls Apart
Life has it’s ups and downs. My heart has opened more because of two stories I heard at women’s networking business meetings this week. This is what I love about women – we share from our heart and soul and that helps us know we’re not alone with the challenges we face. The fear, sadness, uncertainty I feel, you feel. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, but it wasn’t sadness but appreciation for the journey of life that we all share. Perhaps you’ll relate too.
Roxanne, Women’s Success Network, Modesto shared how difficult it was to forgive her husband for the pain he caused her.
It took quite a few months of emotional struggle and soul searching, but she worked it through. He was soon afterwards diagnosed with cancer, which is now in remission. One nugget: Forgiveness is not about saying what someone did was ok. It’s about releasing the burden and freeing oneself. I’ve seen the light shining in Roxanne’s face and now I know why.
Karen Penfold from eWomen in Stockton and Elk Grove, is stepping away from her leadership position to focus on her health and “living.” Karen is not one to cry and when she spoke from her heart about the path of breast cancer her tears were very real. I relate to Karen who, like myself, is (or was) a driven gal. Softening to what’s really important in life – our relationships, health, being there for each other, enjoying the moments we have– is a discovery for all of us. She did a wonderful job for eWomen and I know it’s been a tough decision. All good health & well-being to you Karen.

And, the emphasis is on fear, which is not a good place to problem solve from... [Read More]

3 Big Money Mistakes Women Make:
1) Piddle money away on things they don’t really need. When you’re 80 what will those 30 pair of shoes really mean?
2) Think retirement will somehow work out – too many women don’t start saving early enough and retire in poverty.
3) Don’t understand that their money story is about more than the money it’s about everything – everything we eat, drink, buy or fear.
