I arrived home from the Brave Girl Symposium a couple of days ago and my heart is so full. I’m pretty certain that it was the most loving, happy, HONEST conference I’ve ever been too. I arrived home with my inspiration tank totally filled and with a deep, inspiring knowing that my path, and all of our paths are sacred, hard, messy, beautiful deep rivers that are worth the journey to the big wide ocean of love.
I was one of the many speakers who shared their stories. Leading up to this talk, I was so nervous. Speaking is something that I’m hot and cold about. I want to do more of it, but I also struggle with all the stuff that comes up when I push this particular edge.

Once I arrived, however, I realized that these were my people. They couldn’t have been a more powerful, loving group of women – all 500 of them! And so, it was a true honor to speak. I spoke about what love can do, and how even our hardest experiences are ones that have the capacity to give us so, so much if we’re willing to see them through the lens of healing. Hard stuff. good stuff.
I also met Glennon who I totally fangirled over. She is such a powerful force, a truth teller. Loved finally meeting her.
I also met Rachel Awes! We’ve been in touch via the Internet for years and it was such a delight to finally connect. Her talk, and her wisdom blew me away. I adore her and now considerer a soul sister.
There was so much vulnerability and laughter and possibility rolled up into this event. I’m crazy inspired by Melody, her sister Kathy, and all that they’ve created. In awe…..
Thank you, Brave Girls. I arrived home totally loved up, filled up, and ready to radiate it all out to those whose paths I cross.
SO MUCH GOODNESS.
PS: Be sure to check out all the speakers who spoke. They were all amazing.
