Are you an Iron Butterfly?

Now is the time for women to lead, to transform the meaning of power, to create peace and claim their wisdom. Iron Butterflies are doing it.

Those words introduce women to Birute Regine who encourages us to transform ourselves and our corner of the world using leadership focused on collaboration. Karen Chase, a new friend and local business owner, introduced me to writings by Birute and invited me to the Richmond gathering of Iron Butterflies.

Last night about 15 women gathered in a high rise condo downtown. Three hours later, I left energized.

I’ve now added “Iron Butterflies: Women Transforming Themselves and the World” to my must-read list.

There are millions of ways to make a difference in your part of the world. The point is that we need to do something. How are you working to make a difference?  I’d love to hear what you’re done recently that made you feel good about yourself and your world.

    I feel good on days when I can flow through without complications and when I can accomplish tasks.

    My contributions…hmmm…currently, I’m not volunteering, but as a mother, sometimes the contribution is doing what it takes daily, or hour by hour, to produce children who will grow up to be decent human beings capable of taking care of themselves and giving back to the world. It’s challenging. 🙂
