deep conversation

Words of Wisdom Day 16 featuring Ariele Russell

What does community mean to you?

“Community is a group of people who choose each other, work together on common goals, and support each other regardless of time spent apart.”

Why is having a soul tribe important to you?

“Having a soul tribe helps you stay true to you. They are people who know your true self and accept you as you are with love. They support you, they keep you grounded, and they light a fire under your a$$ when you need that extra kick to keep going. Time is of no matter with your tribe, long times apart do not diminish the connection.”

What words of advice do you have for women seeking out deeper community and connection:

“Find people who inspire you, who remind you of your true self, and people who remind you of yourself when you felt stuck. A tribe needs balance; those who raise you up and those who you help rise. Helping people is often more rewarding and inspiring than following those who are where you want to be, and that is an idea often lost to people.” 

 What are your thoughts when it comes to personal growth:

“Everyone experiences growth differently. Some friends need time and space. Some need constant attention and check ins. Recognize what you yourself need in those times and STOP GUILTING YOURSELF! Everyone else is selfish... take the time to do what YOU need to do. There is nothing wrong with doing what you need... but there is in feeling bad about it. We need to put ourselves first in times of growth. Eat the cake. Take the nap. Lift the weights. Read the book. It is exactly what you need.”

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be: 

“GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY! STOP DOUBTING, AND DO!”

What do you love about being a woman:

“Everything. I love the resilience of my body, mind, and heart. I love the endless giving I am capable of, even when a person doesn't deserve it. I love using my "womanly ways" to get things done. I love that complimenting another woman can make her day/week/month/year/life.”

Last thoughts:

“Embrace your imperfections, quirks, and differences. When you feel lost return to things that brought you happiness as a child - put on that old music. Dance barefoot in the rain. Get creative... just re-live those old passions and allow yourself to rediscover the peace and happiness it brought you before. Return to your roots. Go back to the you before the bullshit.”

Words of Wisdom Day 15 featuring Lindsay Farrel

Why is having a soul tribe important to you?

“My soul tribe is like a family who I can be completely vulnerable and open with. Who I can confide in and know they are there to listen, offer advice when needed or simply support me in the happy moments of life or the more challenging ones.”

What words of advice do you have for women seeking out deeper community and connection:

“Be patient but also don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, it’s through sharing that connections are developed.” 

 What are your thoughts when it comes to personal growth:

“Life is a journey of growth and transformations. I believe there are different chapters of our lives and with each chapter there is a different theme whether it be spiritual growth, personal growth or relationship growth 🙂

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be:

“We are all on a journey and everyone has their own struggles, joys, lessons they are working through. Learn to set boundaries and to determine what is yours to learn/carry/etc versus theirs. Through it all, don’t ever forget to stop loving YOURSELF! “

What do you love about being a woman:

“The connections, the deep feelings and emotions. As challenging as they can be sometime it’s what has brought some of my deepest friendships in to my life. The bond that fellow women feel, it’s something that is hard to understand unless you are a woman 🥰”

Words of Wisdom Day 13 featuring Robbie Hallowell

What does 'community' mean to you: 

“My community is made up of women I can safely share my joys, celebrations, sorrows, concerns, ventings, and various life questions with. They listen without judgement, they may gently hold me accountable, they forgive me for my mistakes and are always have my back and my heart. “

What words of advice do you have for women seeking out deeper community and connection:

“Be open and non judgmental. 

Be willing to seek the connection even when it might not feel comfortable. 

You just never know where an “acquaintance “ or a conversation will lead.”

What are your thoughts when it comes to personal growth:

“I feel very lucky to have had many different women come into my life that brought very different thoughts, opportunities, and knowledge. My mind was opened to alternative ideas that a small town girl from northern NY might never have heard of. I was given and created the gift of not only being comfortable with myself but loving myself.”

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be: 

“Don’t be afraid, embrace being different. 

Never stop learning, exploring  or discovering life. “

What do you love about being a woman:

“Everything!”

“My community of women is made up of many very different groups and ages.  I used to criticize myself for being like a chameleon, blending in with each group. I've learned that all these groups were parts of me and I didn’t need to chose one. It’s what made me whole and approachable by others. I love being included in tribes of young women, elders and peers. 

I believe my willingness to embrace and explore new ideas was passed on to my amazing daughter which gives me the greatest joy.”

What do you love about being a woman:

“Being a #ladyboss. I like proving to people that yes, I know how to use use tools or be the leader in a meeting... while also getting my nails done and taking bubble baths. ”

“A group of people who support each other.” 

Why is having a soul tribe important:

“It’s important to have people that will be by your side no matter what who help you through various times of your life. You need people you can laugh with and cry with. My tribe is the best! They have helped me through so many difficult times and I know no matter what I can turn to them. ”
