I AM November 10, 2018 by Suzy Wigstadtat the end of our day together we asked the women who attended to write their I AM … these are their words. EMPOWERED. WHO I BELIEVE I AM. A STRONG PERSON. WHAT I SAY AND THINK I AM. BELOVED. WHO I SAY I AM. CONFIDENT IN MY DECISIONS. ENOUGH. A WARRIOR. OWN MY WORLD! ENCOURAGED, INSPIRED AND UPLIFTED BY THE AMAZING WOMEN TODAY. I BELIEVE YOU. COMMITTED TO MOVING FORWARD. CONFIDENT. UNAPOLOGETICALLY ME. ENOUGH. CONFIDENCE IS A MUSCLE. PROTECT YOUR ENERGY. SELFISH, AND THAT IS GOOD. IT IS NOT GOOD TO BE ALL SELFLESS. SAVE SOME FOR YOURSELF. WONDERFUL. PROUD. LOVED. BADASS. SAFE. SMART. I BELIEVE YOU!! I sit here, overwhelmed. Thankful that something that was once an idea, a dream, a vision, today became reality. This conference was a thought that was planted decades ago in my heart. I didn’t know how it would happen or when it would happen. I didn’t know the people who I would need to surround myself with to make it happen. I KNEW that it wouldn’t happen BY MYSELF. I need to encourage you, in the thoughts and dreams that you have… THEY ARE THERE FOR A REASON!! Don’t give up on them, or yourself. Don’t give up on finding the people who will support you in making them happen. Continue to trust yourself, to trust your gut, to trust that if it’s in you to do it, YOU WILL DO IT!! It just may not look like what you had thought or planned!! There was so much strength and dedication in this room of women. For some, it was hard – to believe they were enough to come. For some, it sat well with them right away and they KNEW they needed to be there. For some, plans changed – so THIS was the place they needed to be. No matter how each woman got there, we are thankful that our intention came true!! We believed that nothing could stop the women that were meant to be there, from coming. We believed that EXACTLY who needed this day, these women, these stories and activities, these connections would BE THERE. With a smile from ear to ear we can say they were there!! I was reminded through out the whole day that we need each other. It is OK, more than ok to need each other! When we think we can do it alone, that’s when we need each other the most! If you are reading this and any of it sits well with you, if you are feeling like you’re alone, or YOU GOT THIS … on your own, let’s connect!! Let’s support each other. Let’s dream together and put action steps in place to BE who we are created to be!! My life will forever be enhanced. Each of the women who showed up impacted MY LIFE personally! There will be many more in the future! I AM EXCITED for growth. I get to thank: Rebecca Plautz of Rebecca P Photography your willingness to say YES and to work to get things done, no matter what. Your friendship, your belief, your support. Your heart for connection. Your passion to do the things you need to for growth … doing it afraid. Your leadership. This would not have happened without you!! Thank you for BEING YOU and showing up in such an amazing way! Rachel Nicole of Lalagrac Clothing your tenacity to move forward and change our culture, your eagerness to bring humans together and support each other. Your excitement and belief in this day, that it is a START. Your enthusiasm to take on life, no matter what it brings. Your heart for people and growth, healing, surviving and thriving. Thank you for BEING YOU and showing up in a powerful way! Jake Roell & Officer Jess of USA Karate your heart for protection and giving us the tools, both in mindset and physically to stand confidently in who we are and apply a self-defense insurance policy … hope you never need it – but it’s there for you if you do! Thank you for making a tough thing to talk about, light and fun while being completely serious! Thank you for DOING WHAT YOU DO, we appreciate you more than we can say! Tia Gale Thank You for coming a day early!! We would have been there setting up at least two hours longer! It was amazing to hang out with you and get to know you more! Thank you for your samples and your calm in the morning. With you by our side, there was no doubt that everything would work out smashingly!! You’re amazing!! Brian Simonson of Better Together Management your support with all the ideas and visions to bring women together, you lay the groundwork, you are the backbone, you see events from a different perspective and GET THINGS DONE. I could not do any of this without you. You lay the foundation and we get to build on it (I get to make it pretty!!) Your heart is the most amazing heart I know. You care about the details, how things will work and more importantly how people will feel. You are My Rock, and the rock for this conference. I AM OVERWHELMED that we get to do this together and that I get you as my husband, best friend, Love, business partner, co-parent (woo hoo). I AM excited to grow with you and support YOU in the areas you flourish in!
