One reason to join the Dirty Girls!

Hello!  I have been away from here for TOO LONG!  What do Dirty Girls do in the winter cold?  We continue to hit the trail, hit the gym and spend quality time with each other in a variety of ways!  Here are a couple of them… Jennifer aka Wild Rose, and I hit the Kansas River with our kayaks on a strange 60* Sunday afternoon.  The day was beautiful and the little icebergs floating in the river were pretty.  We spotted eagles and walked along the sand, it was a beautiful day.

I’ve been working hard to get ready for the first full season of Dirty Girl Adventures and SOON, very soon I will be posting 8 great events to get you out and about!  I will also have all of the details about joining the Dirty Girl Club.  As I have been developing the Dirty GIrl Club benefits, my loving Dirty Husband has asked a few questions to get me going in the right direction.  One question he asked was, “Why?” Why should a woman join the club?  Well, I can think of many reasons but they are slightly difficult to quantify.  I also think maybe it’s a woman thing!  Then, I received my Little Bird note from the Brave Girls Club the other day and THERE IT WAS!  So, below I have reposted that note.  (You should check them out at www.bravegirlsclub.com) There are other reasons to join the Dirty Girl Club but this, this is one of them and it is one of the important ones.  We need to nourish our souls!  By gathering like minded women and going outside we are doing just that!  Look for the Dirty Girl Club information here on February 1st!  Meanwhile, do something you love just because!

Your daily truth from the Brave Girls Club

Dear Incredible Girl,One of the best ways to nourish your soul is to seek out and do the things that totally absorb you in happiness, things that call to you…things that you are naturally good at and things that fill you up.It’s important to balance your life with the things that MUST be done AND the things that we do simply because of the JOY that comes in doing those things.

Life is meant to be enjoyed and not merely endured. There are simple and small things that we can do that will refuel our souls. We all need to make time to do these sorts of things if we want to live meaningful lives. We will be better at everything that we MUST do if we take time to do what we LOVE to do. We will be better wives, mothers, friends, daughters, sisters, aunts, partners and coworkers…….and we surely will FEEL better every minute of the day.

Please don’t get sucked into the falsehood that taking time to nourish your soul is selfish and futile. It is ESSENTIAL. It doesn’t take anything away from anyone…it only adds to the goodness that you already have inside of you.

Its’ the beginning of a new week…be brave this week and do something that puts a smile on your face…just for the sake of doing it. Little miracles will happen….you will see.

You are loved.
xoxo
