Try This at Home: “Just Because”
I learned pretty quickly as a university professor that the art of teaching is about being smart enough to steal the best material. I’m always on the lookout for good exercises to adapt for my mini-retreats for women, and this week I discovered a new one that I just gotta share right away.
Genaustin is a terrific organization based in Austin that empowers middle-school girls to make positive life choices with confidence and courage. (Only $300 sponsors a girl for a whole year in clubGEN, the group’s centerpiece after-school program. Donate now!)
So try it for yourself:
Just because . . .
Doesn’t mean . . .
I’m . . .
As adult women, we know that identity is ever-changing. We can keep claiming more of ourselves or different parts of ourselves for as long as we live. And it also means we need to remain vigilant about letting cultural, gender, or age expectations determine who or what we want to be or do next. “Just Because“ reminds us that, at any age, it’s never too late for a Do-Over!
