It was a small gathering of dear friends around a table, with coffee and notes. Women of wisdom. We often think we're meeting "for the other" but I suspect at this point, we all walk away refilled from each other.
There is nothing like those who GET IT..
The "it" at this point in my life is this place of carrying something bigger than myself. A vision, A calling, and a Network...
We have been listening to TD Jakes and his thoughts on Soaring and being an Entrepreneur. He spoke these words...
"Their mind is on another level"
"They don't fit into the family"
"They do things scary and ridiculous"
"They see things others don't see"
"They imagine things others can't imagine"
"It's hard for them to find people to talk to because they think on a level you don't even know how to get to."
I'm right there. It's a lonely walk, it's a mind-blowing walk and I'm often holding it all back and in, because I could scare myself.
But there is a small little table of friends, and we sit there and figure out HOW to become what we believe! HOW TO BECOME...what we believe!
We don't apologize for THINKING IT, or BELIEVE WHATEVER IT IS. We girls-we get bold- and dare to release it into the air around someone else who can hear. We watch fear dance in each other's eyes. We can't help it, we have to get our dreams out...like pushing something so hard and painful OUT!
Somehow I see a BIGGER table, with a similar conversation...Where the Network of friends who want to help others will gather. A table I carry around in my thinking and I'm trying to find the words to share that place...
THAT PLACE IS REAL...
