I made the list! I’m so excited to share that I’m among the Spirited Woman’s Spring Top 12 Pick Visionary List. The Spirited Woman is a leading international women’s empowerment community. I am so very delighted to be listed as a Top 12 Visionary along with eleven other phenomenal women!
The Spirited Woman List has been published for over a decade, highlighting incredibly gifted women committed to making a difference while inspiring and uplifting others.
I am humbled and honored to be considered a Visionary. Not that long ago, I never would have considered myself a visionary. After all, I’m just an ordinary housewife and mother. A part-time journalist who volunteers at school and church. Never standing out in a crowd, but always being the go-to person for family and friends.
Do you feel that way about yourself?
I can hear a distinct sigh and an almost hushed question: Who am I to call myself a Visionary?
Well, in the words of Marianne Williamson:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’
And the quote continues with the response to that question:
Who are you not to be?
Which brings me to the declarative statement: I am a Visionary.
I say that proudly for myself. And I state it on your behalf.
As passionate women dedicated to making a difference in this life by sharing our unique stories, we are all Visionaries!
The wisdom you have acquired through the lessons you have learned coping with any number of life experiences, make you distinctly qualified to share your story. Your story is yours to share, as only you can tell it from your perspective. Your story matters and someone out there is waiting to hear your story of courage and grace.
Congratulations to all of us Visionary Women!
