They are many benefits of learning or developing a new skill, your brain chemistry changes, helps you to adapt better to change and reduces stress.
When we are going through challenging times it is important to learn new information, it expands our mind to undiscovered things.
You don’t know what you don’t know, but as you gain new knowledge, you become more aware of the unknown and you have more courage to let go.
Sisterhood and community
Sisterhood is empowering. A female must know, love, and honor herself before she can know, love, and honor you as her sister. Like attracts like and we can find each other to connect and share resources. When women are empowered, the entire community is empowered and this is so extremely important because a group of women wanting each other to do well is something not everyone has the privilege of having. Having someone stand behind you, telling you, "you can do it," is an amazing feeling.
