The "Year of the Woman" Revisited

We’ve been focusing a lot on women who are taking on greater roles in the areas of leadership—in politics, business, religion, and many other arenas. 2018 seems like a banner year for women, and in many cases it is. However, this is not the first time there has been a wave of women in leadership. Here’s what was happening in 1992.

But what makes these times feel different may be because it’s not just women who are rising into influence and decision-making. Thankfully, the wave includes the voices, perspectives, and ideas of many, which is exactly what women have wanted to have happen all along.

Change like this is hard for some people who feel safer with the way things were. We can wrap arms of compassion around them (in real life or energetically) and help them feel safe until they are able to see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts that all is well. Because all is well.

Let’s keep our collective intention focused on an outcome we can celebrate—one that increases love, inclusion, respect, kindheartedness, and greater representation of who we are overall.

The term “Year of the Woman” made me feel happy when I first heard it mentioned at the beginning of the new year. It still does, yet how does it feel in your bones to call it the “time of awakened oneness”? 

Whatever we call it, let’s embrace a new day where more people feel loved, honored, and respected. I know you’re on board.

Blessings and love,

PS There’s still time to register for tonight’s “Women Leading With Heart”! I’d love to have you experience this—you really won’t want to miss it. Do this for yourself—and for our world.
