Are you feeling lonely?
I recorded this before COVID 19 but wow, I feel like this episode is so encouraging right now that we are so isolated and feeling more lonely. We may not be able to hang out with our friends right now but we can still connect over technology. Don’t wait for someone to reach out to you, make that first move. You can still build your friendships during this time frame!
Today we have author Angie White Stone on the show to talk all about surrounding yourself with supportive friends! Angie shared a story where she talks about her Dad and all he wanted was to retire and sadly he never made it to retirement. She then realized, life is short and she wanted to figure out her purpose! She had read the book by Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life and started asking herself “what am I here for?”. She shares with us that in 2005 she started a newsletter to her friends and family, she had no idea what she was doing but she knew she wanted to encourage her readers! As she was working away on this project she still felt like something was off, she realized she felt lonely and shame and knew she needed help. She found women that empowered her and believed in her, and they walked alongside of her, she calls these friends her “Yes Sisters”. One topic that stood out to me is when Angie was talking about her friends, her Yes Sisters and how they had more confidence in her at times then she could muster for herself and it helped her achieve greatness! Hear what she says about this topic and more on the podcast.
