I have had so much fun getting to know you over the last week or so! I sound kind of pathetic reiterating this again and again, but you are all awesome. Such an amazing group of women... I truly would love to meet up with you all at some spa in the mountains and have long chats over glasses of fine wine and dark chocolate. Anyway, I've been pondering who you are (and who I am) for the last long while, and I've come up with some statements that I feel pretty confident encompass us all. Of course, I could be off, or maybe I'm idealizing or putting too much of myself in the picture, but I'd love to know if you think I'm even close to accurately describing us. I think we rock. And I think we are a unique brand of women--a diverse group of thinkers and feelers, women with big hearts and willing hands, and the ability to look beyond our differences to appreciate the unique qualities we all possess. Wow. You inspire me. So, who are we???
We're creative and artistic in a kaleidoscope of different ways.
We long for purpose and meaning.
We strive to make the world a better place.
We're independent, but we choose to tether ourselves to family and friends, husbands and children.
We're idealistic, but we accept the reality of our own shortcomings.
We're educated and intelligent, but we prefer simplicity and grace over a militant, self-serving agenda.
We are not who you think we are...
We're brilliant, beautiful, and broken.
So, what do you think? Did I capture you, even a little? Is there anything you would add to the description? Anything you'd take away? I'd love to hear what you have to say...
