I was recently given a "Woman to Watch" award by Jewish Women International --along with 8 other very dynamic and illustrious honorees. The event was quite wonderful--especially to be in the company of the other women--including Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post, JJ Ramberg of MSNBC's Your Business, and the founder of Spanx! Yes, we were a varied group.
The turnout of supporters for the organization was so huge, and energizing--and I was soon to learn why: The work of JWI is quite amazing--helping women and girls live in safe homes. Check them out www.jwi.org
Before accepting our award, we were each asked to share a "Pearl of Wisdom"--mine was about the benefit of always including something in your schedule that is outside your comfort zone, to help give you the courage and self-confidence to tackle all sorts of challenges in your life.....
I called it "The Courage of a One-Armed Cartwheel. Many people have asked to see it, so I'm including it here for you. I hope you enjoy it.
