Sometimes a personal indulgence is necessary.You need to honor yourself and take part in what will create a legacy for the future while enriching your own life experience.
If you have not heard of the IWA, The International Women Associates, read more about them here. Attend this event. Join the associates.
This is my personal recommendation. I am not one for joining, but if you want to become part of something beyond yourself, part of a community that is global in scope, with great heart, this is the group to become a part of.
