Our theme this month was Women and Leadership. If you missed all the inspiring and thought-provoking content I shared on my social media accounts, you can catch up here:
How do you show leadership within your life?
Here's what feminine leadership is: you being in charge of your life. It's what I often refer to as SELF-control. If you aren’t the leader of your life, in control of the authentic you (your real SELF), then someone else is – and you're following them. While you are, there's a really good chance that they might not be leading you in the direction you want to go. And even if you are going in the same direction, for example, if you have a joint goal, you still need to be in charge of your SELF.

This month we had a #victorychallenge - each day I posted a positive affirmation and the Victory Chicks printed it out and left it somewhere they'd see if often - so they could repeat it to themselves multiple times throughout the day. The postivity and inspiration this created was awesome and helped a lot of women get through the quarantine slump so many of us were feeling. This is a private group, so you'll have to apply to join (Don't worry, I'll approve you!) and you can rest assure it's a safe group where you can share without judgement.
Here are a few example of the affirmations we enjoyed this month:
