Who do you have on your team?

Just recently I was having some pretty intense symptoms that I was pretty sure were peri menopauseal in nature.   I contacted my Naturopathic Doctor (Lois) and sure enough she was able to give me some wonderful herbs and great supportive words to help with this roller coaster ride of transition.  I really do look forward to the next chapter of my life but there are times when I find myself out of sorts and need to reach out to other women on the journey.  Thank goodness for good friends who are wonderful reflections of compassion wisdom and hope.

I have finally come to a time in my life where I choose wisely who is on my team.  I have an amazing group of personal women friends who do not tell me what I want to hear but what I need to hear. They do not shy away from their own greatness so they are always willing to hold a mirror to me to reflect mine when I forget.  They focus on their inward journeys and bring me back to mine when I need it.   I love that they hold me accountable with an honesty and clarity that is rare today.  They have taught me so much; each of them along the way on this most amazing journey over the last 20 years!

I have also learned to choose my professional team wisely, I have a woman chiropractor, and of course Lois who has been our family Naturopathic Doctor for the last 20 years. Along with other women such as wonderful massage therapists.   I feel deeply blessed to have such amazing women on my team during this time in my life.  Each of them also reflecting great integrity, compassion and honesty that is a true blessing.

Learn to choose wisely, who we have in our lives are a direct reflection of what we believe about ourselves.  If your team is not supportive, compassionate, honest and loving, then it may be time to find a new team.  You are worth it.  Life is too short to be wasted on undue drama and stress.

I am blessed because I have learned to choose wisely.
