Week 1 of the Unique group

by | Jan 29, 2011 | Empowerment & Encouragement | 0 comments

Today myself and 2 other colleagues began our 6 week group Unique that is focused on empowering young women to embrace all that is special and unique about themselves.  We began our 1st session exploring how the young women have come to (or can come to) understand who they are more fully.

It was so encouraging to be a part of the discussion, and ask questions that allowed each young woman to dig a little deeper, and discover more about how she sees herself in the world and how she hopes to be seen/understood in the world.

Each young woman came with different unique perspectives of how she works towards understanding herself more fully, and shared little stories about how they have dealt with challenges around being misunderstood at times in their lives.

The group will continue to meet over the next 5 weeks and I am excited to see how we will grow and learn more about each other as a group.  I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of each of their lives.  I am also very confident that along with helping to encourage and empower each of them, I will also be doing quite a bit of growing, and learning myself.

Yaaaay for my Unique Girls!!!!!
