March: Cultivating Sisterhood
Sisterhood is a special bond women share that allows us to feel more confident, inspired and empowered as we move through life. Our initial connections with other women may happen through family, friends or co-workers, but like all relationships, sisterhood needs to be nourished in order to deepen and grow.
In our very busy and now very virtual lives, this can be easier said than done!
Over the past year, we’ve had to become more physically isolated from one another than ever. For many of us, this means we’re spending much less (if any) time in the presence of other women. Until we can return to our in-person gatherings, we'll have to be even more intentional about finding ways to nurture our relationships with one another.
Social media can be a great tool for keeping up with girlfriends and even making new ones, but when we stop there, we miss out on the real connections we crave. Merely witnessing the "highlight reels" of other women can trigger feelings of comparison and judgement. Then, the tool that’s supposed to help us feel connected can leave us feeling quite the opposite-- disconnected from both ourselves and one another.
In The Sacred Beauty Collective, we aim to cultivate sisterhood by creating a safe, supportive space (that's not social media) for women to share our honest experiences, stories and ideas. A place where we can learn and grow together, knowing that we’re not alone, but surrounded by a community of like minded women.
Here, we come together to honor our similarities, as well as our differences, as women of various ages, races, sexual preferences and backgrounds. Our goal is to create an inclusive, welcoming sisterhood where all women feel seen, heard, supported and celebrated, both within our community and in the world around us.
Cultivating sisterhood is one of the main reasons I started The Sacred Beauty Collective and I’m so honored and grateful to explore it with you this month!
