Sitting in front of a Dairy Queen in a small country town, my first REFRESH happened before I was even aware that the concept existed. For weeks, actually months, I struggled with a change of heart regarding a major life choice. In the safety of the company of my first friend, I confessed an extreme trepidation to going forward with the life decision. At the same time, I felt really-really anxious, that knot in the stomach type of anxiety, about choosing to go a different way. With little lag time in responding, my first friend's input triggered my REFRESH.
"One life," my first friend said. "You only have one life...do what you want to with it." In that moment, it was as if permission was granted for me to breathe, to think clearly, and then to do life a different way. Have you ever needed that moment? A safe space to breathe, to think, and then to figure out what to do. We believe that each woman needs and deserves the moment to REFRESH. Every now and again, I close my eyes, still inhale my first friend's words, and choose to do life a different way.
I believe that my first opportunity to REFRESH was a life-empowering gift. Through precise experiences, REFRESH gifts forward the opportunity to as many women as possible. REFRESH, this passionate 501 C3 organization, exists to empower women to REFRESH their own lives. Dr. Gena, Founder
