We're all working on stuff, right? We all know (either in a blindingly obvious conscious way, or in a niggling hunch sub-conscious way) what we need to work on. I liken it to a mirror in our soul. When we glance at our mirror, we see a true reflection of who we are – and sometimes it's terrifying. Sometimes we shudder and look away very, very quickly. The inner 'me' is not very polished, it's all of me, even the ugly raw painful parts. Sometimes the 'me' we are projecting outwardly is a more comfortable version to stick with. It's familiar, it's got lots of layers, the corners are soft and nothing pokes at us.
This shouldn't be a long post, because the event is over now. To describe the amazingness of my weekend at Waihi Beach for the Women Who Get Shit Done un-conference would be akin to rubbing salt in the wound. I'll stick to a general description and hopefully encourage you to apply one day. There won't be another official WWGSD event this year, but watch out for lots more in 2018. If you are even slightly curious about this kind of stuff I recommend you start following their Facebook page to stay in the loop and not miss out on announcements.
I'm Michelle, based in Hamilton, raising two boys, a ginger cat and many vegetables. I have been involved with the work of Magnetic Hub since March 2015 and consider it 'home' in many ways. Accustomed to leading female-only groups, I continue to be energised by the beautiful wisdom that unfolds from women in a room, talking together.
