“Sisterhood. Community. Support. Get you some. 💛💛Allowing myself to be seen authentically, imperfectly, in my humility, in process, in need, halfway there, in hopefulness—has been one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever given myself. “Show up.” “Come as you are.”

Who do you respect?

Think about a woman you truly respect. Take a minute. Close your eyes....who comes to mind?

Why this person?
Does she have confidence?
Does she have a sense of purpose?
Does she say what she means, and means what she says?
Does she say NO unapologetically?

Real Talk: Mackenzie Collier

“Real talk - in 2016 I was suffering both personally and professionally. I found myself drawn to the @nineretreat Instagram page.
