Most people would think I’m crazy adding something to my plate. I already have two businesses and two young teenage kids. My drive to create a red tent business is a compulsion. Because I am acutely aware of my mortality, I so badly want to make an impact in this world while I’m still here. I believe establishing mainstream red tents will help shift the negative paradigm around women’s cycles. They will empower women and help to re-balance this very imbalanced world.
When I first wrote this, my husband still did not know the extent of my conviction. I needed his blessing to carry on so there won’t be any resentment or me feeling like I need to hide what I’m doing. There are times when I feel like I could let my compulsion go. After all, it would be easier not to have to do all of the work involved! I sometimes get wrapped up in the negative self-talk: “Who do I think I am? Enough people won’t take me seriously. I don’t have the where-with-all, etc, etc.” The list goes on. Then I stop to think, this is another reason I should do this! Many women feel helpless and disempowered, hearing the same negative self-talk. On behalf of women everywhere, I am taking the leap. I hope it will serve as an inspiration, giving women the confidence to go forward in creating their own dreams.
Therefore, Universe, God, Goddess, Spirit, angels, women of the world, and husband, I ask for your support.
