Topic: What Is Spirituality?

During different parts of our lives, exploration of our spirituality and what it means to us surfaces and we start to reflect more on it.  Our connection to it can be through an established religious organization or a personal journey on what spirituality means.   Women generally are closer to our inner spirit and yet we don’t always discuss it with others.  It’s a great topic to have in a women’s group.

If you decide on this topic, there is an abundance of reading material on the subject.   For this post, I located another post which feels right for a women’s group discussion.    Does the author’s point feel right, and if so why, and if not, why not.  Is spirituality only attached to an organized religion structure?   Can one actually explore spirituality on their own?

Power of Eating Together

In today’s fast paced world, there are many “to do’s” on our list and we may be tempted to eat on the run and not join other family members.   Though it takes times to prepare and sit down together, the benefits you reap by eating together adds to your well-being and to the family.

Great topic for your group:
How to create special meal times with our partners or families.

Topic: Tips For Healthy Living

A women’s group is a perfect place to support each other with personal goals.   A great topic is around healthy living.   Each person may have a different goal, though the overall theme can be how to increase our physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Whenever we reach out to others to share our concerns, dreams and goals, we become stronger.    In a group you can take turns discussing what areas of health you want to work on, set goals and help each other meet those goals.   Encourage each other to start small and this way you can build your “success muscles.”

I’m Older and How Do I Meet New Friends

We are all so busy now and don’t always have time for our current responsibilities, so how could we possibly meet new people.  Maybe your partner is required to like your friends as well.  If they don’t, that hinders the continuation of the friendship.  Your life may be busy with your partner, children and building a career.  How do you make room for friends?

If you are fortunate, you have friends that know your history and you still enjoy each other’s company.

Maybe you just moved to a new community and need to build new friendships?

How Important Are Your Friends?

Friends are a sanity lifeline for most of us.   Our friendships evolve from the different aspects of our lives…childhood, women we met through our children, church, work and the list is endless.  The important word here is friends.

Yes, we can annoy each other, though somehow it doesn’t matter because we love and appreciate each other.  Friendships are important for our well-being.

Friends make you laugh, listen to you when you’re sad, angry or confused, share the happy moments that bring a smile to your face.    Think about each of your friends and ask “how am I different since knowing this person or what has he/she taught me that has added to my life?”

Women In Our Lives

I received the following in an email.  Usually I don’t open this type of email, yet as soon as I started to read it, I knew I wanted to share it with other women and post it here:

Time Passes…..

Life happens…..

Distance separates…..

Children grow up…..

Jobs come and go. Love waxes and wanes.

Hearts break. Parents die. Colleagues forget favors. Careers end…..

BUT…..Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.  A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach..

Do You Need to Declutter?

When you have a women’s group, the range of topics you can discuss is endless.   Everyday issues and profound life questions are all potential discussion points for a group.   A women’s group can be powerful in helping members handle common everyday issues by offering other possibilities…different perspectives.

An everyday issue that lots of people face is how we deal with our space.    Are you happy with the way your space looks?   Do you twinge when you open a draw and can’t find what you want or you see a bunch of keys which you don’t have any idea where they belong.   Resistance is at it’s best here.    What if you were to work together as a group, helping each other start the decluttering process.
