I invite you, darlings, to sign up for MOXIE! on HoneyGood.com. MOXIE! is a private network within HoneyGood.com.
MOXIE! will be the place for you to have meet-ups with other women in our private community. There will be different types of discussion groups for you to join to exchange ideas and photos.
I know without a doubt that MOXIE! will be a hit for every woman who joins from the shyest to the personality plus. After all, there is not a woman alive that does not have some form of MOXIE!
Women need women. I know this without a doubt. Why?
Over two years ago, I held an impromptu meet-up in our home in California. A young man in advertising was interested in learning the interests of women over 50+. I quickly made some phone calls, and a few days later seven women friends appeared at our door. It proved to be an emotionally charged meeting and a turning point in my life. Talk about the unexpected, darlings.
Sitting in our group was a woman who suddenly said, “I feel invisible.” Darlings, the first thought that came to my mind was Casper the Ghost because the word invisible was not part of my vocabulary or lifestyle. The entire group was not on my page and piped in that they felt invisible, too. I will tell you later on in the story why they felt this way.
How the women felt.
I know this sounds a bit drama-rama, but truth be told, I was suddenly haunted by a word I never used. The definition of invisible: being treated as if unable to be seen; was very depressing.
For the next few weeks, the word played havoc with my mind as I questioned myself on how I felt about myself as a woman well past 50. I talked to myself on my alone walks with Orchid, at the time, asking, “Did I feel invisible in the shoe department of Barneys where younger women were dominant or in a restaurant walking with my husband to our table?”
I breathed a sigh of relief when I could honestly answer on my quiet walks with my delicious Orchid, “No.”
MY WOMEN FRIENDS SHARED THAT THEY FELT INVISIBLE BECAUSE THEY WERE NO LONGER YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL.
Their feelings may sound superficial and vain, but it would be wrong to think that for my friends are women of substance.
The fact of the matter is that when a woman believes she has lost her looks, she may begin to feel invisible.
The little seed that grew into MOXIE!
About three weeks later, after tossing my thoughts around and imagining the positiveness of a group of women gathering together regularly, I made up my mind to phone my women friends and invite them to join a meet-up at my home to share thoughts on topics that come into play after the age of 50+. Not one woman turned me down.
And so, my first group was started. It is beyond successful because every woman leaves my home happier than when they walked in. Why?
Some of the women help the other women with what appears to be an unsolvable situation, and they are happy they could be of help. And, those that need help walk out with a plan and some relief.
In a few months, we will begin our third season as a group. No one has left, excluding those who moved.
This past week I had another group meet-up in our apartment in Chicago. It was a multigenerational group or women, ranging from 28 to 97 years of age. Two and 1/2 hours later the group of women were still exchanging ideas and when they left…they wanted the group to continue!
The essence of this second meet-up proved beyond a reasonable doubt that women need women. The exchange between the women, of all ages, was non-stop. The older women helped the younger, and the younger women helped the older.
My two groups are a dream come true, and for that reason, shortly, I plan to help others start up groups or possibly have HoneyGood.com events where large numbers of us can meet and discuss our issues as women 50+. Darlings, hang tight. I believe in making my dreams come true.
MOXIE! online will be the start of meet-up groups. Many of us are familiar with one another by name and messaging and replies. Now it is time to unite as a community and talk with one another with some MOXIE!
The goal of MOXIE!
EVERY WOMAN WILL BENEFIT FROM ANOTHER WOMAN.
THE GIVER TO THOSE SEEKING ANSWERS WILL SMILE INSIDE, AND THE RECEIVER WILL SMILE FOR GAINING KNOWLEDGE FROM HER MOXIE! SISTER. I AM SMILING.
