Who Is The Uncommon Woman?
The Uncommon Woman is all women.
The Uncommon Woman is struggling to break old cycles and create new stories for herself and her loved ones while navigating her way through childhood pain.
The Uncommon Woman is learning to create a new reality for herself after the loss of a child, a spouse, or a parent.
The Uncommon Woman has left an abusive partnership and is living in transition, doing her best to provide comfort to her children as she builds a new life and future.
The Uncommon Woman is the primary care giver in the home or in the community who is struggling to find her way through her own personal crisis while supporting others in theirs.
The Uncommon Woman is grieving the loss of her breasts or a health diagnosis in while bringing light into the lives of her children and those around her.
The Uncommon Woman suffered abuse at the hands of a loved one, and now teaches forgiveness and unconditional love of others to her children as she continues to learn to do the same.
The Uncommon Woman uses her voice to help others in their journey even though she is terrified of being seen and heard after a lifetime of being told to keep quiet.
The Uncommon Woman is ready to be part of something greater and knows that by taking radical action in her own life she will inspire others to do the same. By sharing her story she will help others through their own healing journey, or possibly save others from suffering.
The Uncommon Woman has left the unleaveable, survived the unsurvivable, done the unthinkable, and made it through the unimaginable.
We all have a story, and although not all of our stories are the same, they are all equally important in our own journey into truth and happiness. Through vulnerably sharing our stories we recognize that we are more similar than we are different and that sharing our pain leads us into deeper personal awakening and a more meaningful connection with self, others, and community.
The Birth of The Uncommon Woman
Throughout my journey of working with thousands of women in their transformational journey over the past 10 years, there has been one common denominator that shows up time and time again, and that is this:
Women feel isolated and alone in their pain. I know the darkness in this isolation. It is debilitating and can leave you feeling hopeless, helpless and without purpose or passion. I know. I was there not that long ago.
