Beautiful Ladies Observing Growth
I’m sure most of us have experienced going to a restaurant and ordering a cup of coffee either because we need a pick me up during the day, or we want that smooth robust flavor to roll across our tongue. We’ve added our cream and sugar to our liking only to lift the cup to our palate and find the coffee to be old, burnt and stale. We know instantly that the coffee has been sitting on the burner for quite some time, or someone forgot to change the filter. Ughhhh, this coffee is bitter!
Well how about us? Do we always recognize when we’ve been sitting in one place or situation in life with no movement, no growth? Have we become burnt, stale or even worse, bitter? Over the past 10 months I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with over 40 beautiful women who are committed to the growth process. These women have chosen to “Sip Coffee with Cathy,” and become part of a community of women who support one another through life’s ups and downs. They are the subject of this week’s BLOG. Beautiful Ladies Observing Growth. I invite you to take a peek at what has come through the filter…
“My growth has made me check myself when I am not sure of why something is happening and to see what my role is in the problem. I now really look at people that I have as friends and evaluate those relationships to see if those relationships benefit me too. I have learned to be present in my pain, so that I can learn the lesson its teaching me and make the needed change. I am so thankful to Cathy for putting a wonderful group of women of all ages together to support each other.” WL
“My sessions at Coffee with Cathy have left me feeling enlightened about self-discovery! Discovering who I am and being victorious in doing so and learning that self-care is not selfish. I am enlightened about what God wants for us. His peace and joy to name a few. I am now on a journey after His peace and the joy of the Lord! I am determined to be Victorious in my pursuit of happiness! I NOW know that I deserve it.” JK
I would have to liken my growth to the transformation of caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly. I know I have grown because instead of running and hiding out of fear as a caterpillar might, I live my life with the freeness of a butterfly with its wings spread wide open and flying with the excitement of discovering life. What a joy. DF
“I walked into these sessions with many questions about my life that were haunting me up until this point. It was so refreshing to receive the answers to these questions from such a supportive group. My growth started the day I walked into “Coffee with Cathy.” I finally feel like peace is on the way.” MR
I’d like to say thank you so much to my BLOG – Beautiful Ladies Observing Growth. I’m honored to be a part of your growth process, as I am growing along with you. (1 Tim. 4:15) So for those of you who would like to add your brew to our discussion, I’d love to hear your response to this question…How do you know when you’re stuck in life, just sitting on the “burner,” and how do you change your “filter” to start the growth process and began to “brew a robust life?”
