The National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA) led the movement for March to be declared National Women’s History Month (NWHM) and has since championed the celebration of women throughout our history. Every year, the NWHA announces a theme for NWHM. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” I love this year's theme because in the mental health and wellness profession, we encourage clients to explore, share, and even celebrate their stories. It is through our stories that we discover our strengths, our growing edges, and the richness of our experiences.
You can read more here to learn about this year’s theme and about the many women who are described by the NWHA as having “long been instrumental in passing on our heritage in word and in print to communicate the lessons of those who came before us. Women’s stories, and the larger human story, expand our understanding and strengthen our connections with each other” (The National Women’s History Alliance, 2023).
On a personal note, it was one year ago during NWHM that I had the opportunity to thank those women in my own life, right here on this blog, who contributed to the birth of a dream and the opening of Healthy Horizons. I can hardly believe that it has been a year already. Here, I would like to reaffirm this thankfulness. First, to a loving God who has remained faithful to prepare, provide, and equip, and my deepest appreciation for those women who continue to stay the course with me. It is through their continual encouragement, support, and accountability that the practice is able to help more women and families reach their fullest potential as they overcome the anxiety, depression, grief, and overwhelm so common in our world today. It has not been easy, but with the support of these faithful women, Healthy Horizons continues to grow and serve the state of Colorado, and soon, the great state of Texas!
