Thanks to all the wonderful women (and the men we love) A Road of Your Own raised $180 for the Let Girls Learn Fund! This money will be put to work empowering community leaders with targeted gender awareness trainings, working hand in hand with communities to achieve community based solutions, and supporting Peace Corps volunteers involved in gender equality program. It was a terrific night, with information about the movie and the girls now, delicious snackables, discussion about future action we can take, and an instax photo booth! Check out the gallery below for photos from the event. Love you all my dears!

Everyday when you wake up y'all #loveyourself
Long post: I've been deep thinking, researching, and journaling about compassion. Thich Nhat Hanh's words have been inspiring me. Yet questions are bubbling up inside my heart. How does compassion interact with privilege? Who is rewarded for compassionate living? Who can place themselves as that expert? How does compassion interact with justice? I don't have these answers yet, but I'm willing to keep looking.
In the meantime, I work on one of TNH's mantra practices:
1st mantra: “Darling, I am here for you.”
2nd mantra: “I know you are there, and I am very happy.”
3rd mantra: “Darling, I know you suffer. That is why I am here for you.”
4th mantra: “Darling, I suffer. Please help.”
🌳 Breathe & Rise🌙
You know what's nice? Taking time from the shame of "shoulds" and "musts". You know what's even nicer? Finding you're ready to get back in after the break. A Road of Your Own is back y'all! I won't be doing the subscription boxes, but I will be doing a quarterly event or two and supporting your rad babe power 💗💗💗💗💗
Today (as on all days) we are strong. We see each other and hold each other dear. We rise up. #adaywithoutwomen #internationalwomensday artwork by @missbrigette regram from @wecanradio
Real talk: why does usps.com choose to stop working when all your packages are ready to go out the door? 😠😠 #postofficeproblems #grrr #smallbusinesslife
