January was the start of a lot of new things for me so by the time February rolled around I was in need of a real boost. Instead of finding it elsewhere I found exactly the self encouragement I needed in a book. The past couple weeks I’ve been reading a great book called In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney. It’s a book that features over 100 women who are makers, artists and entrepreneurs graciously giving inspiration and advice. As I read each story I began to draw from the strength of each woman. It became as if the women in the book were collectively whispering words of encouragement directly to me. Every page turn brought me closer to hearing their voices say don’t give up and all your hard work will pay off! I have been so moved by these women that they’ve become the inspiration behind my February mantra “live with passion.” I associate the month of February with love so, I’m sharing my passions whether they be big or small. I hope you’ll join me in this! If you’re looking for an aha moment you’ll definitely find it in this book.
