In today’s Women Wednesday Wisdom, I wanted to change the theme slightly and talk about not just one individual women of influence, but to talk about us as women, and the powerful beings we are.
There are many women in our lives, in society that we look up to. Women who have made changes to the world for the better, women who have strived to do their best for the good of others, whether that be famous public figures, or everyday individuals. We look around us, and there are women that we aspire to be like.
I have always expressed the importance of celebrating individuals, especially women, but I think it’s very important we recognise ourselves too. If we don’t recognise ourselves, how do we expect anyone else to?
Amongst the countless amount of impressive women out there, we mustn’t forget the powerful forces that we too, are. It’s very easy to get caught up in the lives of others, through seeing how they portray themselves on social media, and comparing ourselves to them. Each of us are uniquely different in our own way, we should be proud of this and we should embrace this. We were all born to make a difference in the world, and we really should believe this. We can do anything we want, we can achieve anything we want – we just have to be strong and bold enough to go out there and get what we want.
We can be reminded of this all the time by the people around us, by people who have platforms, by the ones we admire, but we also need to practice it, and the only people we should be in competition with is ourselves.
So today, I want to remind you of the great person you are, and that you should not be afraid to embrace that person. Through your personality, through your vision, through your work ethic, through your sense of fashion, you are fabulous through and through. Don’t be afraid to have a or use your voice, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve your dreams, keep going, keep having faith, and most of all embrace your whole self.
