We all get it. It happens. And it’s really hard to push through.
That’s what happened to me this week. Yesterday, I came to work cranky, and may have taken some of it out on colleagues that didn't deserve my tone (I apologize if that happened – I didn't mean it to). And to make matters worse, I had a long day ahead of me, including a drive to Greenville.
That is not how the day ended. And I have 5 incredible women to thank for it.
I got to spend last night with 5 unbelievable women. We talked, we ate, we shared stories and experiences and at the end of the night I was sad to drive away. This was a Tell Them meeting, so obviously some of the talk was about comprehensive health education and making the South Carolina landscape better for reproductive health polices and strategies. But last night, it was more than that.
It was a safe place for women to be together and support one another. It was a conversation that allowed each of us to be a friend to the woman across from us. One of my favorite lines from the evening was my new friend LaToya who said, “There are a lot of educated women in South Carolina, but are we really educated on being a woman and how to support one another?”
Thank you, ladies, for bringing me out of my crankiness and for reminding me what friendship and sisterhood is all about.
