This is go time for women, as we collectively rock politics, medicine, education, the arts, and business with our women-strong wisdom, compassion and collaboration.
But women can’t become this truly unstoppable force for good unless we shake off an old shadow that holds us back: how harsh we can be to one another. Let’s face it. The world has proven to be an ugly place and it’s time to find beauty in simple values that are free and often taken for granted.
LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, and UNITY have been cast away for greed, independence, and fear. This will not get any better unless we, specifically women of color, reach back and lean on each other. We can’t afford to fall back into outdated, destructive ways: when we hold one woman back, we hold all women back. And when we empower and support each other, we all WIN!
We often ridicule instead of uplift when we’ve progressed in our lives. Why not mentor and foster development for women whom you see your former self in? Stop believing that if you work hard all on your own that you will make it. It will not happen. There are things in this world that require organization, steadfast improvement and a willing unified spirit. One can never make it alone in this world. You need to express your own brilliance, don’t block someone else’s. Be an amazing woman. Unleash her now!
DO GOOD – BE KIND – CHANGE THE WORLD. Be your own superstar, and you won’t feel the need to tarnish another’s star.
Look of course, we don’t have to agree with every woman. But we can stop trash talking about women’s appearances, parenting, or successes. Gossiping and side talk can be addictive and pass the time in a boring day. But they’re destructive. Find a legit feel good fix. Find your INTEGRITY.
