Zen as Shit

The Group Focus and Motto

I was blessed to be a part of a unique group of ladies called Wild Bitches that originated from Cafemom many moons ago. I still stay connected with these fine ladies through the Facebook group. What makes them interesting is they are very open, blunt, and call it like it is. Some people might find them a little too bold, offensive, or even vulgar. The truth is these ladies are caring, passionate, and give you their best selves if you are honest and accept them for who they are. People like to think that women that curse or tend to be on the rough side are immature, crude, and reckless. This is not true.

The ultimate goal is to be sure everyone has a place that fits their personality and lifestyle. While most people focus on basic general self-improvement (psychological direction) some prefer spiritual or religion. I wanted to open an option for ladies that want to focus on self-improvement that prefer a different approach.

The group is open for discussions, sharing, and devotions based on the journals created by Monica Sweeney. The books we will follow are: Find Your Fucking Happy, Zen as Fuck, and Let That Shit Go.
