Find your path, your purpose and your power.
I am excited to announce the 3rd edition of the Sisterhood of the Fierce Traveling Journal! Each series has provided insights, epiphanies and discoveries that connected us more than I could have ever imagined. To put a cherry on top of the cake, the sharing of our stories, goals, dreams and inspirations created opportunities for personal growth and change in each of us. The experience was empowering and formed friendships that continued to grow long after the series ended. Together, we created a Fierce movement. Here is what the girls said about taking part in the previous projects:
Nicole O’Brien I absolutely loved taking part in the Sisterhood of the Fierce Traveling Journal because it gave me the opportunity to get quiet, get creative, and get with ME for a bit each day. Being a mommy to two kiddos under 3…that can be a rare thing so it was a great way to do some much needed reconnecting to myself. It definitely helped me to pave a way for continued ME time, even after the designated journal dates were over. Amazing stuff.
Kimberley Hill-Neils Participating in the Sisterhood of the Fierce Traveling Journal taught me how to trust and connect with people I did not know. It challenged me to step out of my comfort zone. I am not a sharer and I became one.
Melissa Stevens The Traveling Journal was an amazing thing to be part of! Not only was I able to really look deep into myself, recognize things I may have shoved deep inside, but use that for personal growth as well. To be teamed up with my fierce sisters, learning about them, and sharing this creativity was a life changing experience!
Brittney Polinka The traveling journal is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever been a part of. I think it changed my life, helped me open up and tell my story and create true friendships. It’s a way to help bring us all together and be a part of something bigger and so inspirational. I love love it! I’ve done both so far.
Alessia Velocci The Traveling Journal was a great experience in that I was able to open up about some pretty dark issues and themes. Having the support of my sisters was incredible and their words of wisdom and love really made the experience special.
Kelly Dunaja The Sisterhood Project literally changed my life. It came at a time in my life when I was “stuck.” I was recently laid off, experiencing great difficulty getting a new position, and really didn’t want any of them anyway. I knew I was meant to do “more,” but I couldn’t figure out what my “more” should be. With impeccable timing, along came our final journal topic ‘What would you do if you knew success was guaranteed?’ The topic both excited me and petrified me. I stared at my journal for days and days, afraid to open it. Opening it meant getting real with myself. After all, the topic specifically said ‘success was guaranteed.’ I removed all the what ifs, if onlys, could haves, and left just me with my thoughts and dreams. My sisters were counting on me to journal and mail, so one day I had to start to write. If there was no accountability, it might still be sitting on my desk. Once I started writing, I couldn’t stop. I filled pages and pages with ME. The passion flowed effortlessly. I realized through my journaling the ONLY thing stopping me from living my dream, was ME and a fear of success, a fear of failure, and a fear of mediocrity. The more I wrote, the more I realized I’m pretty awesome and my passion would practically guarantee success once I dedicated myself and pursued my purpose. The same day I mailed my journal off, I got applications for business licenses and all the other legal stuff I’d need. It’s amazing, rewarding, and puts a smile on my face every day. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have participated and for the exchange of thoughts and ideas with my Fierce Sisters. Because of this FIERCE project, KellyCan is a reality and I’m crazy proud of myself for putting fear aside and pursuing my passion!
A Note from Ashley:
I know some of you are learning about this project for the first time and others have participated in previous sisterhood projects and I have to express to you how grateful I am for what we have created at Fierce Forward. We are a group of people that lift one another up. It is a rare and beautiful thing to have this community of people who are empowering one another to move fiercely forward and at the same time are vulnerable to one another with personal struggles that I think we’re realizing…we all go through. We are all the same, we are all one. We all want more for our selves and for others. I see that in our posts, in our comments to others and in the heart of our community.
This project and all future projects, it is important to me to raise this Sisterhood Project to something that helps unleash your inner power so that you may move fiercely forward towards what you want in this life. We are all trying to learn a fierce self love for our selves and others, to move towards our purpose in this life and to unleash that inner fierce that is often shackled deep within. It is my purpose to not only share with you, but to guide you in finding your inner fierce, because the moment I found mine, everything changed. I began moving towards a belief that I am limitless, that everyone has the power to create what they want in their lives, to live their passion, and that by learning to love yourself more, you then unleash this power that I call the Fierce within. So let’s get to doing that, together.
