We can imagine ourselves as small and weak, or big and brave. 
Which one are you today?

Becoming Fearless in the Eye of the Storm    
Dr. Myra Zinke Women’s Lecture guest speaker, Gilda Rogers

Becoming. I was struck by the title of Michelle Obama’s NY Times Bestseller, and it made me think about all the women I’ve come to admire for their courage. How did they become who they are? As women today, we are fortunate to witness our ascension as a collective force, but frankly, we need to pay homage to our journey, fraught with life and death circumstances. We have arrived as the movers and shakers of our time, and we must embrace the fullness of life and its magnificent rainbow of colors, open our hearts and pull a chair up to the table to be about the business of Becoming Fearless in the Eye of the Storm!
