I recently had coffee with two women friends. They are smart, capable women. They have quality degrees and impressive work experience. For the last several years, they’ve been focused on taking care of their families. Their spouses make enough income that they can afford to do that.
Jen Louden, the bestselling author on self-care for women, has recently shifted the focus of her work to saving the world, and inspiring her readers to join with her in that work. In a blog post last month she wrote, “For a long time, I’ve been part of a sub-culture that believes if you raise your consciousness and do good stuff like buy quinoa in bulk and shine light to others during hard times, that will be enough to change the world. I say that’s crucial, that’s glorious, and that’s not enough.”
