I created this blog because I believe truly and deeply in this message. I want these changes for myself and for all women in our culture. As I look around, the whole world seems to mimic the "American Way". What a huge responsibility I feel as a Female Member of the one of the most powerful forces of change in the world. I want these big changes for every woman in America. May it echo out and reach women all over the world.
I also created this blog as a forum and as an opportunity for support. I do not consider myself an authority on anything. I simply have had many years of trial and error under my belt to know that this is the path I am on. I want YOU to REACH OUT!! COMMENT!! ASK!! AND RESPOND…SHARE!!! As a way of supporting these goals for one another and all of us. I am not the only Self Care Diva. You just might be a Self Care Diva too. Are you?
Please, share your stories, your victories with all of us. Because each time you do you will give another aspiring SELF CARE DIVA HOPE.
