how do they do it?, part 2

last year, i had an idea. an idea that, because i am surrounded by so many wonderful, talented, able and good people, i ought to share that with others. to share their secrets. their thoughts. 
and i thoroughly enjoyed it. so much so, that i've decided to do it again. you can never have too much of a good thing, right? so, starting tomorrow, for the rest of may, you will hear silence from me {finally!} and will hopefully be uplifted by nine incredible women, from all walks of life, with a wide array of experiences.

this nine ladies are in no way second best to those you heard from last year. their stories are different, but they are equally as amazing as you will soon see. 

i truly believe there is nothing wrong in admitting you have a trial, a struggle, a sorrow. we focus so much on perfection, i think we've forgotten that it takes a few setbacks to get there. we have plenty of examples of giving up and giving in, of negativity, of bitterness, in this world. 

the stories that aren't told as often are those of strength and courage, consistency and resiliency, positivity and encouragement.

these women do just that. 

we can all find strength in their stories and, if we find ourselves in a similar situation or struggle, hopefully we can know that we are not alone.

Can't wait! I loved reading them last year and sometimes tell myself "I can do hard things".
