I noticed some things about myself in July. I already know I love to help people.
I already know I love to, sow into the lives of other women. But I was reminded of
how much I hav been living it without even realizing it.
As a child I was a Girl Scout! I LOVED it! We had a great time. The only reason I
stopped was because my high school schedule started to interfere and no one told me I could continue as an individual member and not a troop member.
My experiences as an elementary school teacher haunt me now, 33 years after my career began. I pray that I didn’t traumatize the girls (6 of them) in my class of 18. My naïveté had me concentrating on the masses.
I returned to my Girl Scout roots and worked at National Headquarters for 11 years. By this time I was all about the all girl experience and discovered how very important it is to the development of self esteem and well rounded experiences.
Ultimately, I found myself at a woman founded and owned company. I am still there, working to insure that teachers know how to teach reading. Then three years ago I joined ThirtyOne another woman founded and owned company. Celebrating, encouraging and rewarding girls and women is the focus, while we sell a tote or two.
I say all of this to say that all of my past and present experiences have led me to this, nurturing women through this blog and the Further Her movement. I know this is where I belong and I embrace all that comes with it. I feel so blessed. Stick with me and you will benefit from the overflow.
