The holiday season is all about showing others around you how much you care. For our community, and especially for those who may not have support or are feeling the emotional pressures from the season, supporting the women around you is essential.
In honor of our monthly theme of support, we started the conversation over on our Instagram and asked, “What was the last thing someone did for you that made you feel supported?” We feel so blessed that we can have these honest, real and raw conversations with you all, and are so appreciative of our followers who chat with us on these personal topics. Here’s some of what you ladies shared!
For me, I love a random call from a bestie, that tells me that I’m doing a good job, and they are proud of me. Sometimes the simplest words can provide so much encouragement and support when you’re feeling down or in doubt. We really do rise by lifting others.
I’d love to hear your answer! Share the last thing someone did that made you feel supported below and share some support as well to our amazing community! Use this as some inspiration for paying it forward this season and a reminder to give love to those who need it. And remember, you are NEVER ALONE.
Comments will be approved before showing up.

When I found a lump in my chest in early 2010, I was ten years into a series of 26 self-portraits with four 4 images to complete. A theme of reclaiming runs throughout the project: reclaiming of self-representation, of our personal and collective stories and the power of visual image. Be it ten years or ten minutes, the essential gift is the same: focused discovery and reflection via the arts allows us to be a witness to ourselves. To hear and respond creatively to our bodies with our bodies is to reclaim a role in the healing of our bodies.
