Welcome to the*WOMEN RISING* Meet The Authors series.
I am honoured that these women chose to join me on this journey and share their stories. I would like to introduce you to some of the amazing humans that you will connect with as you flip through the pages of this book...
What is Women Rising?
It is a book written for YOU. A safe space to land where you will feel safe, heard & validated in ALL your feelings and experiences. Here, we will remind you that you are not alone when the world feels heavy & that you are capable of rising above even when life gets hard. Obstacles are inevitable, growth it optional. The ability to see it that way - is beautiful.
Sandra Wind is the co-owner of Simply Organized with Sandra and Amanda. She enjoys helping others to simplify and organize their lives. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband, their daughter Emily and fur pup Tessa.
What inspired you to apply to the Women Rising co-author project?
I was inspired to apply for the Women Rising co-author project because I had a desire to share my story and my challenges with others in hopes of being able to help someone else.
What's something you learned about yourself through writing?
Through writing I learned a lot more about myself then I anticipated. It forced me to take the time to be with my thoughts and feel my emotions. It helped me learn that it is ok to ask for need help and to ask for it.
What do you hope readers walk way with after reading your chapter in Women Rising?
I hope after reading my chapter it will remind the reader that no matter what you are going through, if you look for happiness you will find it. The dark does not last if you choose to see the light.
As a woman dedicated to Rising, what advice you would give someone that is currently struggling or going through some hard things? What could you tell her to support her in rising above?
My advice to someone currently struggling or going through some difficult things would be to rise above your situation and look for happiness. Lean on those around you and ask for help. The struggle you face today was put in front of you to help you develop your strength and character for tomorrow.
