What would a mission statement read like for WIND? Women In New Directions.
WIND has changed directions just as the women who have grown with it have.
What started out as a support group of sorts, has turned into adventures of the mind, body and soul.
The more we have dared to do, the more WIND has changed directions. I love the fluid nature and unknowing.
WIND is active and creative.
It is art and physical endurance.
Connection and friendship.
Exploring new art forms that stretch and move our minds and soul.
We explore our inner worlds with some projects, our goals, hopes and intentions.
And, out in nature we gather strength, peace and navigate paths we may not have traveled alone.
WIND is open, free and expanding.
It includes all and if applied weekly will change your life.
We are women in new directions.
We know sorrow, pain, fear, and heartache.
We know love, peace and joy.
We are familiar with life's darkness and welcome it, share it, explore it.
We laugh at life, ourselves and the joy of being.
We want to inspire other women to gather and play.
We range in ages from the 20's to the 60's. I love this the most.
Women who find themselves being pushed into a new direction, can learn to embrace the new. Women who find themselves stuck in no direction can come and learn how to wiggle free.
WIND isn't a place, nor does it have an agenda.
There are no rules or boundaries.
WIND is free
WIND is like your very best friend.
Open, loving, daring, adventurous, daring, exploring, redefining, listening, speaking up, creative, artful, imperfect, perfect, inviting, challenging...
WIND, if it had a mission statement, would be Women In New Directions, being badass.
We strive to grow and embody who we truly are.
Our differences is our strength.
We encourage each other with honesty and heart.
WIND has given me so many new friends, new experiences, new directions.
It has changed who I am.
I am now a hiker, biker, snowshoe, ski girl.
I have learned so many new different art forms, I feel more expressive.
I even got a Tattoo with WIND!
I have traveled on trails, climbed up hills, walked over Brockway Mountain, up Porcupine Mountain, snowshoed in the dark, etc becoming a badass outdoor lady!
My life is so much richer with WIND.
WIND moves with inspiration and desire, with hopes and dreams and challenges.
It changes you in ways you can't even know, until looking back at all the different directions we traveled!
Oh the places our feet have gone!!
WIND dares each of us to be who we were born to be!
What is WIND's Mission Statement? I will have to try and boil it down to a paragraph.
