Brave Girls Club also sent an email recently reminding us of the role we may play in others' lives without realising it
So my main learning is that sharing your word makes you more vulnerable - but in my case it has also led to increased support and therefore more growth, positivity and development. Also finding that the more work I do on self-development (eg. written journaling in response to prompts in my inner work journal, using my responses to Tarot as a mirror to my inner landscape, making time to fit creativity into every day), and the better I feel about myself, the more I have to give to others. It's not selfish to make sure you have time for self-care. You can change what you pay attention to. The more I attend to myself, the better I can Shine, inspire and support others. I feel so grateful that my word is such a positive force and reflection of what's happening my life. I can't wait to see what happens as we move into the second half of the year.
