I am starting a new theme for July which is all about being single. I hope that you can join me in this journey.
I have found myself this week struggling and being very overwhelmed. I have been thinking about what I have seen, heard and experienced in the last few weeks.
The last few weeks I have had a change in my routine and had been placed in a very important role.
My heart aches.
Injustice is the word I find myself thinking of.
If we watch the news we can find ourselves drawn into the injustice in our city and in the world.
My thought is who is standing in the gap for those that don’t have a voice or who has had their voice taken away.
If I let myself dwell on this it can become overwhelming and it can consume me.
My whole legacy of what I what to do is –
|I want to make a difference |
Who are you standing in the gap for?
What can you do for someone who has nothing?
What can you do for someone who has been treated badly?
Every day we have an opportunity to bless and help someone. It may be a kind word, a smile or contributing to something that they might need.
If we just start where we are at, then I know that we can make a difference.
Remembering though to keep yourself safe.
This week let me ask you who will you stand in the gap for?
I am excited for this week to see what will happen.
I would love to hear what you have done to stand in the gap for someone.
Will share more soon.
For a while now I have wanted to set up a support group for women who are struggling with an eating disorder. I have researched and have heaps of ideas, policies and procedures. This will still happen and I will work at it because I want to do it well.
It has been on my heart to have a night where we can just value women who are struggling with this illness.
They can bring their friends along and family members.
If they are attending on their own then I would have someone meet them and sit with them. I know how important that is.
I want to bless them, I want to encourage them and I want them to know that there is someone who would love just to spend time with them and to hear their story.
So my thought has been to have a night of encouragement of inspiration of moving forward.
But what would that look like?
I want to set the atmosphere for it to be beautiful for every woman that attends they will receive a gift. Something that they could wear like a bracelet that will let them know that there is hope. I know in my journey I would not buy myself anything nice and this is a really important step in recovery.
The night would be a night of creativeness, of music and of a message.
The message would be you are not alone. You valued, worthy and loved.
You have a purpose and a beautiful future.
How and where this event will be held I am not sure yet.
After the event it would be time for coffee and time to meet other women.
I also want to have psychologist and counsellors that specialise in this area to be able to attend.
The night would not be a one of but the start of an amazing journey of celebrating lives. It would also lead into the support group that I so want to start.
I am passionate about seeing everyone walk into their purpose and their dreams.
Is this achievable? Absolutely I have learnt in the last few years that anything is possible if you believe.
If you or anyone would be interested in this event please let me know.
Will share more soon.
