Hey there, fabulous souls,
As we step boldly into 2023, it’s both heartening and, in some cases, perplexing to notice that many extraordinary individuals are still wrestling with elusive exhaustion. While some of us were fortunate enough to step back and recharge during the pandemic, others were thrust into roles that required ceaseless care and support for the mental well-being of those around them, even if they weren’t front-line warriors. Caring for business clients, staff, guests, family, and friends, that there was no training for and no way to prepare for, has left some still needing more time to recover. The disparity in experiences serves as a poignant reminder that the impact of COVID-19 has been as diverse as the colors of the rainbow, touching each of us uniquely.
Many among us are still grappling with the aftereffects of long COVID, mourning the loss of loved ones, dealing with estate issues or dealing with the exhaustion brought on by the myriad challenges we’ve faced. Some networks easily flowed online and built new paths and some did not. As we rebuild our networks, we must do so with empathy, understanding, and a focus on the basics of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: safety, kindness, and a sense of belonging.
In this context, I’d like to introduce you to a wonderful platform that can help you connect with like-minded individuals who share your values and goals. Meetup.com, founded in New York after the tragic events of 9/11, was created to rebuild trust and community by bringing people together around shared interests and activities. It’s a testament to the power of community-building during challenging times.
I invite you to join my Meetup.com group called “The Ladies Meeting,” specifically designed for business women aged 40-66 who are eager to build a sense of community, foster connections, prioritize their health, and work on personal growth while nurturing a strong business ethic.
