LIFE AFTER NINE
Post-NINE Advice from Mackenzie Collier:
SHARING: No one is entitled to hear about your experience at NINE. Most people won’t understand. They might be dismissive, negative or skeptical. It’s perfectly ok to be vague, “I was at a women’s retreat. It was great.” Over time, you can decide who you feel comfortable sharing the magic with.
DISCOMFORT: Pay attention to where you felt discomfort. That’s where you might need growth. Be brutally honest with yourself about this. Grow. Grow. Grow.
ACTION: A notebook of vague ideas and random notes won’t help you change your life. You need to create action items based on everything you learned at NINE. Make a list of what you plan to do to change/grow. Then schedule it on your calendar. Make time and space for the growth. Prioritize it. It might help to create an accountability group with some NINE sisters.
REACH OUT: When you find that you are having a rough day or that you are struggling: reach out to your NINE community. When you are proud of yourself, reach out to your NINE community. Use this network of support; it’s here for you always! Never suffer or celebrate alone. Make plans with your NINE community. Even if you live far away, we can do Zoom/FaceTime/Google Hangouts to stay connected! I (Mackenzie) always leave my Fridays free to connect with people, so hit me up!
RELATIONSHIPS: Have patience with your friends and loved ones. They didn’t get to learn from NINE. They might want to grow individually or better support you but just may not know how. But alongside this, take no shit. You will find that after NINE your intuition is on overdrive. Pay attention. You are amazing and not everyone deserves to have access to your magic. It’s ok to outgrow people and move on.
