Some inspiration for you today:
Over the past few months I have been a busy bee restructuring a lot of my business so I can better serve you.
This process has led me to finding new partnerships and collaborations that feed MY inspiration, match my mission, and better fuel my TRIBE mentality. It has left me feeling so powerful and uplifted.
This past month in particular, I have really been diving into this idea of collaboration, cooperation and win-win type relationships that can create an energy and support system like never before.
You see, I am a gal who has leaned towards (over) independence, always doing things all by myself. My asking for help felt like a burden.
WHOA was I wrong...
What I am realizing is that most of my life I have forged ahead without the TRIBE mentality.
Having spent a lot of time on this lately (personally and professionally). I am realizing that not only can we be more supported in collaborations and cooperative efforts, we can also be more powerful in our own lives.
My mantra lately has been ..."Lean In"
Thanks to my awesome business coach, this month I have hired an assistant (go Ashley!) a new (bookkeeper (thank you Bettsee), and kindled some amazing partnerships with awesome organizations such as LuLulemon, Isagenix, and Radiance Power Yoga.
(p.s. This has also been very good for my relationship.)
Today with that in mind, I am going to share with you a very special collaboration I am working on because this one really pulls at my heart strings, fires me up, and leaves me so excited and energized at the powerful work people are doing in the world.
Feeding Fearlessness is just that.
This week I chatted over tea with one of the founders of Feeding Fearlessness, Kaitlin Mulligan.
Feeding Fearlessness is a student run support group at CU that aims to both provide a safe space for open conversation regarding eating disorders and body image, as well as help educate the surrounding community about the prevalence of these problems.
These women are extremely passionate about personal transformation, the TRIBE mentality, and women finding their power with eating and body!
Last week they were on the front page of the Daily Camera!
Here is all the details:
Feeding Fearlessness is open to both men and women, and isn’t exclusive to just those struggling with defined “eating disorders,” but to anyone who may be struggling with food, weight, body image, etc.
FF holds weekly support meetings, where members are encouraged but not required to share a bit about their successes and setbacks.
FF maintains an atmosphere of positivity, as we are all striving to achieve better health and happiness.
Feeding Fearlessness also participates in fundraising events, such as walks for the National Eating Disorder Association, and helps to raise awareness throughout Boulder by participating in National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, and the like.
Unhealthy relationships with food, weight, and exercise are often overlooked, especially in the Boulder Colorado community, and we aim to bring more attention to these relationships, and support each other in bettering them.
