The Fulfilled Woman Accountability Group is a Virtual Meetup created with the intention to bring women together to express and take action toward our biggest dreams. In the process, we support each other and share our experiences of increased moments of fulfillment.
When we strengthen our connection with women, we see just how similar we are and reducing our feelings of isolation and lonliness. The pandemic has created the circumstances to eliminate what is not working for you and in some ways has simplified life and shining light on our values. Authenticity is the key to fulfillment. Authenticity is loving and accepting who you are. It is sitting with the discomfort of not fitting in or shaming yourself for not fitting in. It is seeing yourself in the wholeness of who you are, the spectrum and seeing the beauty in that realness regardless.
Power is different than force. When you force yourself do more, be more, the underlying belief is: “YOU ARE NOT ENOUGH”, a feeling of being unworthy. There is power in Authenticity. It is about walking with confidence and presence and when faced with the unknown, it is about being curious instead of doubt and fear. You do not have to prove yourself. Transformation and expansion comes after self acceptance. When you are not afraid, you have the energy to grow and try new things. You free your mind to consider the possibilities of new dreams and experiences. Because your identity is not fragile, you can move between ideas without self ridicule. Stating your dream can be one of the scariest statements! It exposes what is nearest to your heart and what you dare think you can have! But stating your dream boldly gives others an example to follow.
What if you don’t have a goal right now because life feels chaotic? If that feels like you ~ Read my recent article When NOT Falling apart is the goal. We are managing a lot and society expects a lot. But we find happiness in our capacity to shape the world so that we can bring beauty into being. It’s through our own making, our creativity that we make a beautiful life. When you express yourself, share yourself, you are able to find pleasure in life and you experience more fulfillment. Goal Attainment happens where there is Incentive and Accountability. When moments of fulfillment become the incentive and accountability is created in our relationships, you have found the recipe for a fulfilled life.
