In the process of creating “Chilled Chicks” we have laughed, talked, collaborated and lost many hours of sleep.
We are friends, who were brought together by circumstance and have rapidly become sisters. Now if you know sisters, you know that sometimes they don’t agree. We nag each other, and occasionally piss each other off all the while knowing that there’s a love and respect between us. Heaven help the person who tries to do the same to one of us; fur flying we’re ready to defend each other at a moment’s notice.
Women have a special connection when they gather together and become sisters of the heart. We find common experiences that allow us to laugh and share stories. The nurturing aspect of our personalities allows us to comfort each other in a way that is solely feminine. As mothers, grandmothers, lovers, wives we spend many hours performing ‘acts of service’ as responsibility and demonstrations of love. We most often receive our source support from other women. The first question asked by any woman when walking in to the kitchen of her hostess is “Do you need any help”? Many women instinctively offer support and comfort to others.
In the course of this journey of ours I’ve learned a lot about trust and support. I’m learning not to take things too personally, and confidence in my choices. Most of all I believe we’re all learning to walk the walk of practicing what we believe in, and more importantly we’re connecting with other women in a supportive way. Stressed we may sometimes be with all the demands but there’s a bounce in our steps because we’re creating something we love together. We’re learning how strong we are and testing our limits while having and lending support on our journey. This is ultimately what we want to share with others. We are discovering unknown talents, finding more strengths each day, acknowledging our weaknesses while knowing that no one person can be all things. We are growing individually and together simultaneously.
Oh, it’s not always peachy with a group of women; politics, insecurities and misunderstandings occur wherever you find humans. However when you can take the step to let your heart lead and follow that need to nurture, support and be supported – wonderful things happen and new seeds start to grow. We are after all the bearers of the seeds of new life. Divine Feminine indeed!
