What we're about

This is a group for any woman who is trying to build skills to improve their lives - whether it's in confidence, self-esteem, communication, or otherwise. We'll gather in workshops to discuss a particular self-improvement topic based on the general interest of the group. We'll build a community of like-minded women looking to "level-up" in life by sharing our challenges and supporting each other through our journeys. I am very interested in helping women overcome the insecurities and anxieties that hold us back from achieving our very best. The key to self-assurance is having a deep sense of love and acceptance for ourselves, but often that can be the hardest thing to figure out how to do! It's my hope that every woman who joins us will walk away with some tactic or strategy that will help move the needle toward lasting change. Are you ready to Level Up??

*Community Rules*

1) Respect - we will respect all members and their privacy. Everyone is at a different stage in their lives. Everything we share is confidential unless otherwise specified.

2) Show up - we will arrive on time when we say we will. By RSVPing to an event, we are making a commitment to ourselves and our fellow members. Community works when we are courteous to each other.

3) Photos - by attending an event, we agree to have our photo taken and shared via the various social media or public outlets. We may, of course, request that a posted photo is removed. However, the removal of the photo is at the discretion of the administrator(s).

** A note to the shy among us **

The most difficult part of change is showing up. If the thought of appearing in a small setting with complete strangers terrifies you, and it would be hugely helpful if you knew there would be a friendly face to welcome you, please send me a message so we can figure out how to make things comfortable. Don't let the fear hold you back!

This is the mission I set out to achieve when I created this group. Tell me what you think!

"I want to build a community of fellow women who feel supported and heard in their daily lives. We come together to have fun, relieve our stress, feel connected, and share in each other's struggles. We are not afraid to be vulnerable because we know being vulnerable will lead to greater connections. We feel safe to share who we truly are instead of putting up pretenses in order to fit in - because we know that to express ourselves as we are is to appreciate the beauty of the world in its variety. We are silly, courageous, loving, smart, capable, fun-loving people looking to share our truth in the world around us. We invite others in as if they are family because by joining our community they will become family. We are learning every day from each other how to become strong, independent women regardless of whether we are also moms, daughters, wives, students, managers, executives, or otherwise."

The Antiracist Book Club (Last Tuesday Every Month)

Online event

***Please note the date change to Tues, August 4th. I apologize for the inconvenience!*** Our book for the month of July: How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi Join our Facebook group to get the video call details: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ladieslevelingup/ If you don't have Facebook, you can register here to get the link: https://antiracistbookclubjuly2020.eventbrite.com Given the nature of this event, you will be required to create and sign into Zoom in order to join the call. ----- We know what it's like to be a woman. To be misjudged, underestimated, and ignored. Raised to be "nice" and valued by our looks. To be called a bitch if we have too much attitude, too much will, or speak too loudly. We know what it's like to be highly intelligent and yet still not qualify. To be a second class citizen in a world dominated by men. So we get inequality. Everyone deserves a fair chance, including us. We know what it's like to be denied access. To be told that we were made for making babies instead of working in the corner office. To be told we're not good enough while growing up and then spending our whole lives trying to disprove it. We know what it's like when people don't believe us when we've been harassed, sexually abused, or raped. Sometimes we think we deserved it. And we get upset at our friends and loved ones who don't immediately come to our defense. If they only knew a thing or two about what it means to be a woman in America. But even for us, it's hard to talk about race. We don't want to say the wrong thing. We hardly know what to say. We don't condone violence against our fellow women and men. And we are for sure not racist. But - ⚫️ If we truly believe that our personal freedoms as women are the same freedoms that every living person in America should have - ⚫️ If we truly believe that there are certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" - ⚫️ If we truly believe that people do not deserve to die simply because of the color of their skin - We would be Antiracist. ----- Personally, I feel woefully unprepared to moderate a discussion about race. I'm not an expert in this area. I'm sure I'm going to reveal my ignorance a million times during these talks. But that's the only way we'll ever learn how to be part of the solution. Join me on this journey if you've been witnessing the state of our country and feel helpless to do anything about it. This will be an open discussion to understand the black experience, just like we'd want our allies to understand the woman experience. We're Antiracists like we would ask our allies to be Feminists. Through love and respect for each other and our individual experiences, we'll connect with each other in a way we have never dared to before. Our book for the month of July is "How to be an Antiracist" by Ibram X. Kendi See you there.

6 Weeks to Self-Love

Online event

Join our Facebook group to attend: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ladieslevelingup/ ----- There's a vision we have about the person we want to be - poised, confident - a "take no prisoners" kind of dangerous when it comes to the people who meet you for the first time. The kind of confidence people can FEEL when you walk into the room. Maybe there's even a fantasy of walking into a large hall, dressed to kill, and all eyes turning to admire you in awe. And you, cool as a cucumber because that's just what it's like to live your life. But you know what it's really like. You have to remind yourself that placing all of your worth in someone else's hands has never worked for you before. That you better not fall into THAT trap again. And you know that while you're putting that dress on, you're hoping you'll get the attention of someone who will make you feel beautiful even though you're self-conscious inside. And it doesn't even have to be about romance. We live for the accolades and the public appreciation of our gifts at work and at home too. We want to be valued, loved, and imparted with a sense of belonging. But none of those things can be given to us. We create those feelings in ourselves first, by loving the person that we are. By becoming the person we love. ----- Join me for this 6-part workshop series where we learn truly how to love ourselves. When we do, we'll find the path to our greater confidence. Because loving ourselves means that we'll forgive ourselves for our mishaps - and there will be plenty as we step out of our comfort zones into our confidence. You may join any week of this 6-week program, although I highly encourage you to attend all sessions. Access the Live Broadcast by joining our Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ladieslevelingup/ During each event, you will: 💜 learn about the topic of the week (course outline below) 💜 interact with others in our community through chat 💜 gain tactics on how to start loving yourself more TODAY 💜 get answers to any question you have about self-love 💜 get to know me and how I can help you even more with this WEEK 1: Taking responsibility for feelings WEEK 2: Dealing with negative thoughts WEEK 3: Preparing for transformation WEEK 4: Nurturing positive self-identity WEEK 5: Obstacles to self-love (Q&A) WEEK 6: Intro to Advanced Self-Love ----- I hope you'll join me on this journey. I went from complete self-hatred to complete self-love by following this formula. There's nothing I can't handle now because of it. And I wish the same for you. xoxo, Christina

Tuesday Night Hangouts! (Online)

Online event

Join our Facebook group to get the video call details: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ladieslevelingup/ If you don't have Facebook, you can register here to get the link: https://tuesdaynighthangouts.eventbrite.com ----- So much for getting out there and meeting new people, amiright? My comfort zone is between my bedroom and my kitchen these days. It's not only acceptable to stay there, it's encouraged. But I don't want to be a hermit crab forever. I generally like people and wish I had more of them to talk to. Meeting them in person seems impossible right now so why not try making some connections online? Maybe I'll meet someone I can grab drinks with when I finally feel comfortable doing that. I could even enjoy a summer day outside with a new friend if I trusted that we shared the same ideals about how to keep each other safe. But I'm so tired of Zoom meetings and I would hate to be in a big group online so that everyone can stare at me while I introduce myself. 😅 Let's do this online thing without all the awkwardness. We'll break out in pairs to introduce ourselves to one person and get to know them a little bit. We'll cover the basics like: 💛 what do you do for a living? 💛 where do you live? 💛 what do you miss the most from when things were normal? 💛 what's an activity or hobby you're looking forward to getting back to? Then, we'll come back to the larger group to introduce our partner to everyone else! When everyone's been introduced, we'll break out again into groups of 4 so that we can get to know people even better. Who knows? If we're at this every week, we might just meet the people we'll be spending the summer hanging out with. Now THAT would be the most productive Zoom meeting I've ever been to. 😆😁😆
