I Was Afraid to Do This…

I had the idea for this MeetUp in my head for a year.

And why didn’t I launch it until Feb. 22nd of this year?

๐Ÿ˜ฌ Because I was afraid.

Afraid that no one would come…afraid I wouldn’t know what to say every month…afraid that if people came, they wouldn’t come back because they thought it was lame.

All those doubts and fears that keep us small…keep our light dim…and keep us from becoming the person we most want to be.

The irony of that, of course, is that the entire purpose of this group is to help all of us women be a little bit (or a lot!) bolder in our lives.

โค๏ธโ€ And I promised myself a while ago that I would never sell myself out again by settling for what feels like the “safe and comfortable” choice.

It took a little time, but I’m proud of myself for being bolder and putting this out there.

๐Ÿ’ฏ I crossed the 100 members mark this weekend and already, today, there are 117 members of the group. That’s in less than one month.

In addition to that, 37 members are signed up for the first in-person event this Wednesday, and 19 are signed up for the online event on Thursday.

๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I don’t know how many people will actually show up to either event. I don’t know if the events will be “good”…I don’t know if people will like them…and I don’t know if they’ll come back.

And I’m not sure it matters because I can’t control any of that.

๐Ÿ’œ What I can control is the courage to do the thing.

And so can you.

If there’s something you’ve been waiting on that’s been calling your heart, maybe now is the time to put a stake in the ground.

๐Ÿฅฐ And if you need some loving support from other women who are afraid, but walking the courageous path anyway, then come join us in Bolder Women ===> https://www.meetup.com/bolder-women

๐ŸŒŠ We’re creating a tide that will lift all of our boats together!
