I believe we are a global Sisterhood by choice.

I believe that women have the innate ability to help each other on this journey.

I believe that all of us can choose a life of passion and purpose, led by our heart and our head.

I believe that it is our job to share our story, loudly, proudly, and with the world.

I believe that these stories connect our hearts and minds for a common purpose and make for a rich and joy-filled journey.

I believe in all of us.

And I will tell our stories. This is our Sisterhood by choice

Hi,
I’m Betsy Wiersma
WELCOME

I remember my dad as he worked out of the home when I was young. My mom planned the social events, and my dad was diligent in his entrepreneurial pursuits. Fast forward to my fourth-grade macramé bead bracelet business, with a whopping profit of $40.

I had the bug, and I was on fire for business, creativity, and making a difference in the world.

I call My Philosophy ROI: Return on Ideas.

I believe that through creativity and strategic thinking, we can have fun on this journey and achieve measurable goals and success. And along the way, our actions can help others have a rich and full life, and we can help each other stay on purpose and make a better world each day.

And the connection on this journey is the Sister Stories.

These are the stories of each of us, who have something to share and something to learn. Sister Stories are you and me. Sister Stories are the catalyst for someone else’s new choice, a new perspective, and a new path. And what fun it is to dive deep into the hearts and minds of our Sister friends around the world. Through this true connection, we find each other, and we find ourselves.

FLY


The first step to your next is to spread your wings and fly

After the basics of the art workshop, it was time to fly! What did that mean? It was time to try some new techniques. It meant trying the scary things like dripping the paint all over. Then, layering the paper, and adding our own personalization like crazy dots! The exploration of NEW made me peaceful and alive. Engaging and in total union with my head and my heart. Fly came to Earth as a bird butterfly heading toward the future. Fly used many media to spread her wings and bring herself into the world. Fly as what happens in the moment when head and heart collide, and love wins. Fly is your call to action. Spread and GO!

YES AND


What can you say yes to today, and who can help you on your journey?

Meet our sister Yes And. She is a smiling whimsical beacon of possibility. She has angel wings of beautiful flowers and a butterfly on her headdress. She is asking us, what can we say Yes to today? And who can we find to share the load? Yes and are opening words that take us to our next and remind us of the help we can attract to journey on our path. Yes is GO!  Yes is movement and action.  Yes is the possibility.  What will you say Yes to today? And who are the lucky Sisters you will take on the journey with you?

GROW


With light, positive energy, nutrients, and friends, it’s time for you to grow.”

Three days into my art retreat, we were experimenting with all kinds of fun. Leading to expanding our personal touch. We used stencils, lettering, doilies, and a technique for taking out the background.  This means we smearing paint all over our creation to take it to the next level. It was ugly, messy and scary to “ruin” everything!  The lesson was LET GO!  Stop controlling the art (your life) and go with what comes. Grow was here with her 3 messages for us. It’s okay to let go, it’s okay not to know, and it’s okay to get messy and try something completely new to you. Through exploration of color, pattern,  nature, and the unknown……we grow.
 

TIME IS NOW


Today is the day you start tomorrow. The time is now.”

What are you waiting for? How many times do we make up a story called there will be a time when everything is perfect?

What are we waiting for?  Why does it always “take so long” in motion to our next?  The time is now sister was created on the canvas of another painting that I had done in an art workshop. She jumped into her glory of color and her bold statement. No more waiting around! Everything in art and in life is possible. And nothing can get in the way of your dreams if you start them. So start them.  Take action. Make a step. Because the time is now.

LOVE YOURSELF NOW


Self-love is the magic elixir to boost your love for the world. Love yourself now.”

How much love do we shine into the world while forgetting the source? How many times have we showered great understanding and compassion on everyone except ourselves? What happens when we are down and depleted and cannot see the light? Love yourself now came forth to remind us that self-love is the magic that heals the world.  Self-love is the fuel for our passion and purpose.  Self-love is the way we stay whole, complete, and ready to serve. To be full and complete for others, our magic is to love yourself now.

BELIEVE


Your story is your truth. Make it a good one and believe in yourself.”

What do you know for sure is true? Who is the author of the adventure that is your life journey? And what happy ending will you write for yourself? Believe is here to tell us that our story is our truth. Believe is here to assure us that what we can dream we can do. Believe is a mantra to use each day as we work toward our best possible dreams.  Believe is the truth that sharing our story saves the world.

HAPPY EVERYTHING


There is happy in everything if you choose it.”

And then the Sister Story of all Sister Stories was born. Meet the Angel of Happy Everything. It’s funny when I started to make her, I never knew how much power would be in this one Sister. She looks ahead to the bright future in her beautiful headdress of medallions and stands firm with a colorful body stating her purpose, to celebrate happy everything. The most fun part of her was all the secrets that came through. If you look very closely, you can see a Psalm, you can see some dictionary words that say opening and open, and you can see a quote from a piece of scrap paper that says “fullness and length give power!” It’s also fun to also find the words “ongoing” sneaking through the paint and to enjoy the antique lace across her dress. Happy Everything reminds me how to start each day. Gratitude is our magic method of living a full and happy life, and the Angel of Happy Everything is here to be sure we remember.
