I realized after my last Fearless Friday post, I hadn’t explained exactly what it is I am doing here. Remember when I said I had attended the Making Things Happen Intensive in Watercolor? Where I met some fabulous women? Well, a group of us have gotten together for a blog project of sorts. Every other week (for now!) we are doing a post titled Fearless Fridays. Each post will have a theme that we have decided on as a group and at the end of our post we are going to link to one other girl in the group. So I really hope each week you take the time to follow the link at the bottom of my post and read how others have interpreted the theme of the week.
First of all, Fearless Fridays. How did we come up with this name? Well one of the mantras of MTH is “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” Because as Lara Casey so aptly put it “Fear is the biggest thing preventing you from really making things happen. . . . When you simply identify your fear, worlds of possibility open up.” So Fearless Fridays was born out of this concept. We are here to open up: to each other, to perfect strangers, but most importantly, to ourselves. And while not every FF post has to incorporate MTH, for most of us, it probably will.
Ok, you’re probably thinking “get on with it and get to the crux of this post.” Well, this IS the crux of my post. This week’s theme was amazing. And I can’t think of a better word to describe each of the women I met at MTH2010. Each and every one of them bared their souls to total strangers, creating a bond of friendship and support that we now all share. Each of these women is a business owner. Each is a wife, girlfriend, mother, daughter, or friend. Each has obstacles in her life, some which may seem insurmountable. And each has shown support to a complete stranger. There is one word to describe these women: AMAZING.
So this post is in honor of each of these amazing women – whom I am honored to call my friends. Thank you for listening to my fears, sharing your fears, and supporting me every step of the way.
