“This month at Live The Process is all about women supporting women,” says our co-founder, Robyn Berkley, of October’s editorial theme. “It’s about the women who inspire us with their fearless, generous and innovative work. It’s about women trusting in themselves and in each other.”
“Everyone has inside of them a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!” — Anne Frank
Now feels like the perfect time to celebrate “Women Warriors.”
Looking around at the women in my life, I often find myself thinking, “How do you do what you do?” Of course, this is a question our society has been asking for generations. But, fortunately, lately it feels like there’s more recognition of the contributions that women are making, even as our rights are being threatened.
Personally, I am in awe of my fellow women and all of the different hats they can wear, the way they seem to do so much with such integrity and ease, especially when they lift each other up. That’s why this month at Live The Process is all about women supporting women; it’s about the women who inspire us with their fearless, generous and innovative work, ideas, nurturing energy and/or positivity. It’s about women trusting in themselves and in each other.
As women, we all have different experiences and stories, which is what is so beautiful. We’re all at different points in our process. That’s why I was so inspired by the Anne Frank quote I shared above. It felt like the perfect illustration of the time in which we live—things are uncertain, at times even scary, but if we can focus on our potential and our greatness, what we are truly here to be doing and showcasing, then we can move ourselves and others to do the same.
This potential is right in front of us and inside of us; we just have to be willing to go there, to really look at ourselves and figure out who we are and who we want to be. The journey isn’t easy, but, once we begin to know ourselves, a celebration awaits. It doesn’t matter what it is we do; it’s just about how we feel and the smile or sense of accomplishment it brings.
I can’t wait to share the stories of these incredible women this month, as they are all so amazing in different ways and have the power to make us believe in our own potential too.
