I’m taking today as a shameless self-promotion day. I had an idea yesterday and spoke about it on my late night periscope broadcast. For the past few weeks I have been part of an amazing Facebook group called Scope Mama’s. This group came out of the blue, pushed me out of my comfort zone and inspired me to get in front of the camera.
Since being a part of this group, I have been able to interact with some incredible, inspiring souls. In only a few weeks I feel like these woman have become a source of strength and support for me. Also it has been an absolute joy to watch with each broadcast these people transform, make personal discovers and become more in touch with there own uniqueness.
I have made some personal discoveries as well. Through this and other Facebook groups I have been involved in, I have discovered that I love being a cheerleader. When I see them succeed I feel that success whole-heartedly along with them. When they have struggles, I want to offer support and encouragement as if they were sitting right next to me. I feel bonded in a weird way with these women that I have never met.
Then it came to me. This is what I want. This community of support and encouragement. I want that. I feel in my heart that I want to create that type of community. A place where people can challenge themselves and each other, find support through struggles, find joy in each other triumphs. Push each other. Encourage.
For the Scope Mama’s group it I offered encouragement to use Periscope. Beachbody accountability groups offer support to lose weight and get fit. I want to create a group that offers those things and more.
Since the theme of this blog is “the journey to balance and moderation.” I want to create a community that shares in this journey, whatever it mean to them. I want to create a community where people can find support when they are out of balance and find strength and encouragement when they lack moderation. We can share best practices, tips and ideas in food, family, finance and feelings. But most of all we can support and encourage each other. Because I feel it in my heart, this is what I should be doing. It is where I can best serve you. And that is really why this blog exists. The blog however, is mostly my feelings, my views, my best practices. I want to create the exchange of ideas that can happen in an active Facebook group.
If you would like to be part of this community “Like” the Inbetweenmoderation.com Facebook page. While there respond to the question I will post in coming days, comment on previous blog posts or add your own ideas. Help me create the community I dream this can be.
