Brave Girls

I subscribe to mailings from the Brave Girls Club – have you heard of them?


Love, love, love their mailings.  Such a great reminder on a daily basis to keep focused on what is most important and on nourishing my own soul.

Here’s what was in my inbox today:

Dear Becoming Girl,
It might feel kind of scary when you start to realize who you really are, because that person is so much more magnificent than who you have let yourself believe she is, and it’s scary to look that potential in the face and truly believe in the bright light that she is. It’s frightening to think about how life might change if we embrace our real, authentic, fantastic self; relationships might change, our job might change, the way we live each moment often changes when we stop living on auto-pilot, when we stop settling for what showed up somewhere along the way.
Please be reminded, radiant girl, that there is nothing on this earth so beautiful, so comforting, so warm and inviting and loving as a girl who knows who she is. A girl who knows who she is has nothing to prove, nothing to worry about and nothing to take. A girl who knows who she is shows up with so much light, confidence and love for everyone and everything around her that the room. The world is never the same after she is there.
Please embrace the soul-deep goodness that is you. The world needs you to see it. The world needs you to live it. We don’t want to miss out on your color, your light and your glittery sparkle dust anymore.
It will be ok. Come on out of that cocoon and show the world your wings. Ohhhh, they are so beautiful!
You are so very very very loved.

A message from your friends at the Brave Girls Club –

Brave Girls Club - A Little Butterfuly Told MeThey also have mailings for young women. I subscribe to these, also, and forward to my girls’ email accounts.  Big Girl loves them although she admits she doesn’t always “get” them – but I know the wisdom is seeping into her consciousness and that one day the nuggets will prove helpful (or I hope so anyway)

It’s uncanny to me how BOTH sets of messages seem to be exactly applicable with whatever is going on in our lives that day – for example, when Big Girl was having some challenges with some “mean girls” at school, the young Brave Girl emails were talking about having confidence in yourself and not valuing yourself based on how others treated you. Amazing.

Here’s a sample of the Young Girls’ email:

Dear Wonderful Girl,
You are a mighty little force of goodness. Did you know that?
Don’t ever forget the power that one person has, one pure hearted girl has, to make GIANT differences in the world. Light will always always always overpower the darkness, no matter what.
Keep shining that sparkly light of yours, beautiful girl.
You are so very very very loved.

If you’ve never checked them out – hop over to the website and browse around. If you have a young woman in your life (or even an “old woman” like me) consider subscribing or passing the link on.
