Whole Woman: Healthy Woman

Today I went to the first workshop in a three part series called "Whole Woman: Healthy Woman."
We focussed on leadership - how we were leaders in our respective groups, how we can improve our leadership skills, and how we can empower others while leading.
After introductions we spent about an hour doing yoga.  That was the first time I have done yoga in a group setting and I really enjoyed it!!  It felt great and I look forward to doing that again soon.
The second part of the workshop involved thinking of a few of our weaknesses we see in ourselves as a leader and work to rephrase those perceived weaknesses in our thinking.  We did this by creating a collage to help us rephrase and work through some of our negative feelings.

One of my weaknesses I chose was the self doubt and regret that creeps into my thinking at times.   I looked through many quotes while making my college and one that I found really spoke to me.  I wanted to put it here in my blog so I can look back to it when I need a reminder.

"Oh soul,
  you worry too much.
  You have seen your own strength.
  You have seen your own beauty.
  You have seen your golden wings.
  Of anything less,
  why do you worry?
  You are in truth
   the soul, of the soul, of the soul."  - Rumi
