International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day is March 8, 2017, this year. Embodied feminine leadership is about turning inwards for answers. It’s about being self-directed by your own inner guidance system. It’s about tuning into your deep bone wisdom and choosing to forge your own path even if it goes against everything the mainstream deems as desirable. It’s about listening to other’s advice but ultimately giving yourself permission to have the final say – even when your decision flies in the face of conventional wisdom. It’s also about leadership from the inside out – self-determining your outcome from the truth within your bones. It’s about deciding in advance to create a new path, even if it has never been created before.
Sacred Women’s Business Coaching was created from a childhood dream about taking the road less traveled. A Robert Frost poem, which captured my misfit (read Miss Fitz) heart at the age of 8, has stayed with me for life and inspired me to go my own way and staying true to my heart. It hasn’t always been easy, but it has meant that extraordinary opportunities, people, and miracles have appeared on the path. I feel blessed to have a magical and deeply fulfilling life, doing what I love for a living, even when the hardships of single parenting threaten to mess with me!
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
– Robert Frost (1874–1963)
