World Pulse Ambassadors in Weekly Thriving Thursdays

Thrive means to grow, to develop well or vigorously, to prosper or flourish. This is what our World Pulse Ambassadors seek to do when we gather every Thursday to connect, share and learn from one another. In connecting every week, we get to experience the true essence of the World Pulse spirit. As we learn remarkable things shared by our World Pulse Ambassadors, we build our individual values to align with World Pulse values of voice, connection, beleza or beauty, abundance, and power.

Since the Thriving Thursdays started, World Pulse Ambassadors have engaged topics including, ‘Moving Forward Together’, ‘Peace Journalism’, ‘Power of Social Media’, and the last learning session was on ‘Coming out of the Pandemic Stronger and Better’. In the last learning session, ambassadors got to learn that growth happens where we place our attention. So, we need to direct our focus on the possible blessings that this time is bringing to us, our families, our communities, and humanity. We learned that the power of our imagination to create something better and useful, like services for ourselves, our family, our co-workers, our neighbours and humanity as a whole, has the capacity to continue to grow to the point that we enjoy peace like a river. We went on to share practical exercises of deep reflection and meditations that helped us release our fears and invoke intentions of freedom from all fears and guided individual visualizations and affirmations that we are a force for our own good and the good of humanity.

Ambassadors emerged from the sessions with empowering feedback:

‘That was really thought provoking and so powerful’

‘During this time, I am taking the time to reflect and redirect’.

‘What a wonderful meditation to come back to and refresh ourselves’.

‘I am using this time to reflect and pray, to bond with my family and to serve humanity better.’

‘I want to be more peaceful and calmer in my interactions with my family - not rushed and tense. Doing the work with more joy’

‘… we have learned a lesson to care for each other and take time to tell sisters how we feel, value each other, and will serve our community more ...’

‘I am thinking about how we can reach out to the World Pulse Ambassadors who haven’t been opening emails lately or joining calls. Maybe we can organize check-ins with people to make sure they are doing ok, offer support or love to those we haven’t heard from lately?’

‘I celebrate you all because of the authentic relationships you all have with each other and how you see and hear each other. I believe in the power and heart of the women of World Pulse!’

‘Seeing every one of you sisters here each week, smiling and strong is sure enough reason to be grateful. Thank you all for constantly showing up. You all rock!’

Together, World Pulse and our community are creating a world where all women thrive, in every facet and every corner. A world where women everywhere are heard, connected, prosperous, powerful, celebrated, and free. That is how we are refreshed to support the World Pulse mission to create a world where all women thrive, one click, one comment, one connection at a time.

More powerful Thriving Thursdays lie ahead! And we will share more updates. Together, we all THRIVE!
