The older I get the faster times goes until I’m afraid I’ve used all my time planning to do something, but never getting around to do it. Well I’ve changed the status quo and have started to do something.
In this crazy day and age, we need to build each other up more instead of tearing each other down. I’m here, one person, trying to build up as many people as I can. That includes you. I do my best from the corner, everyone needs that one person in their life to direct them and coach them, who has their back, Maggie had Frankie, Lucy had Ethel, Thelma had Louise. Let me be in your corner, I’ll pick you up when you fall, I’ll be your wing woman, crack an inappropriate joke when you need a smile, and I have no problem doing the dirty work when you are unable to do it.
We need to support each other and not direct negativity to others who may not do things the same way as we do. We women need to step up to the plate, in our stilettos, sneakers, sandals, or socks and say “It’s not okay to tell that her she can’t take time for herself”. Our personal growth comes from within, if we don’t follow our own path, are we really growing or simply following along?
The challenges and excitement of doing this blog empowers me to go forward and instill that confidence in my daughters, my friends, and the women I see and talk to every single day. On our own we are but one person, but joining together, we are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.
I hope you all find that one way to build someone up today, whether yourself or someone else. By choosing to not accept less than you want and deserve, you make it easier for the next woman to do that for herself as well.
Be strong, be beautiful, be you.
