Can you remember back to when we all lived in caves and carried big sticks? Cannot do? It really is in your DNA and all you need to tap into it is to sit around a campfire in the middle of the woods without cell phones or flashlights and listen to the far-off cry of …. is it a wolf, a coyote, a bear, or merely the rustle of a rabbit?
Most of the time fear will sneak up on you, just as it did to our forefathers and foremothers.
Way back then, men were the daring ones. They had to go out to get dinner and dinner meant using whatever they could carve and throw to kill the animal that would feed the tribe.
Women were back at hearth and home cooking, cleaning and caring for the kids who were told not to run past the safety of the boundaries of the tribal circle.
Now we travel the world at warp speed and get our food from the nearest restaurant or market.
How have we changed? In my GUTSY WOMEN Weekend retreats, we tackle this head on. Women have become more daring and men more caring.
Women are lifting weights, running as fast as the speed of light, leading large companies, inventing and creating as equals to men.
And men can now be stay-at-home fathers if they choose, without being looked at as if they are weak and wasting time on “nothing”. Just think - John Lennon made that choice decades ago.
What happens as the stereotypes of who “dares to care” and who “cares to dare” change?
ENTER the 21st Century concept of SHARING.
Stereotypes break down when we DO something differently. GUTSY women dare and GUTSY men care and together we are showing the younger generations a better way.
