Welcome to the Soul Sisters Blog!

We’re three sisters on a mission to empower and inspire women everywhere to pursue their passions and achieve their dreams. Our story is probably not unlike your own; a tug at the heartstring, a feeling of wanting more from life, a desire to fulfill a divine purpose. It was these relentless yearnings that inspired the concept of Soulspring Groups.

When our souls open up (and they tend to quite often) we’ve got to share! We invite you to read our thoughts (and occasional rants) on women, empowerment, passion, destiny and life! Feel free to share your comments; we love to hear your thoughts (and rants) too! And, become an official follower! It's always fun to see the company we're keeping!

The Real Code of Courage

Previously posted: March 22, 2009

What do you think of when you think of courage? Who comes to mind? Maybe a firefighter’s heroic act of saving a life from a burning building or a soldier protecting our country during war? Or even a common person who put their own life aside as they jumped into the Mississippi River to help motorists after the collapse of the 35W Bridge. There is no doubt that we all see these acts as brave and courageous.

But how about the executive who presents her proposal to the board of trustees? Or the mom who stands her ground with her teenage son, even though she knows he’ll be upset with her? Or the wife who is caring for her ill husband? Or even the laid-off factory worker who is out there looking for job? These too, are everyday acts that exhibit strength, nerve and guts. Too often we devalue the brave acts we demonstrate as insignificant. We think just because it is something we have to do that it can’t possibly be courageous.

So I challenge you to start a new code of courage today. Don’t under value the courage that you display. Be sure to acknowledge those everyday acts of bravery and celebrate them. Remember you may not be putting your physical life on the line, but something just as important; your heart, soul, and spirit. And, for that you are to be honored!
