President’s Message: Thank you for a fabulous October Meeting!

Greetings Gorgeous GWIN Members,  
 
We rocked Oct 3rd at our second Members’ Meeting!!! 
Our GWIN Scholarship winner, Katherine MacKenzie was presented with her award. Katharine is an INCREDIBLE young woman who is no stranger to GWIN. She has attended meetings as a guest and was one of the practitioners at our Wellness Fair. 
 
On behalf of the Scholarship Committee I can say it was a VERY difficult decision  We had so many fantastic applicants. However, Katherine shone in so many ways – her commitment to women’s health especially providing support to women with psychotherapy and counselling. She is an entrepreneur as well and provides care for women providing low cost therapy  She is another of our GWIN Scholarship Superstars! It was so lovely to hear her speak, directly from her heart regarding how grateful and honoured she is to receive the $1,500 GWIN Scholarship. And how there will be powerful ripples of the Scholarship.
Our Expert Speaker, Tahani Aburaneh greatly inspired us and shook us up (in a good way) with “No Excuses. Love what you do!” Her delivery was extremely inspirational and as I looked around the room I could see it affected  every woman at the meeting. One of my favourites from her talk: “If you think you can’t do something, let that be your fuel!” 
 
She spoke about my favourite Marianne Williamson quotes:
 
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
