I have been holding out for so long. Clenching my tongue against my teeth in order to keep the status quo flowing. I am one of those easy going chicks that likes to speak her mind but also likes to keep the peace. That was until this past year. I have finally become fed up with keeping quiet. With everything going on in our world now is not the time to be silent. People are losing rights, dying, fighting, vandalizing. There are riots in our streets and our energy is being reverberated across the globe. This weekend almost 3million women marched to stand up for our rights as women. I feel awed and inspired by these women. As I have been my whole life. I always enjoyed reading about women who fought to be heard. Now it's our time!
All joking and expectations aside, the reality is that we now have a celebrity as a president. I have had my issues with this long before our election but if I must I must. The truth is no matter how I feel, and I feel pretty strongly, he is now sitting in that chair for the next four years.. So as an American I look at it as accepting you to show me what you can do. But as a woman, a fighter, a lover, a peaceful warrior, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a person with a voice...get ready to hear me roar.
Ladies now is the time to stand up, now is the time to show the country what we are made of. Start standing up for yourself. Start showing the people who put you down that you are ready to fight. Look back throughout history, look back at all the women who have fought for us. Everything came at a price. We wouldn't have gained so much without great loss. This is our chance to award ourselves another monuments moment in history. Look at all we have accomplished just in the last five years. Keep going! Imagine what we can accomplish in the next five!
Now is the time to start letting your roar out. You want something go for it. You deserve that promotion, you deserve the career change, the business ownership, the motherhood, the wife, friend, activist and any other title you want to test to you name. The road a head is going to be hard with many, many obstacles and challenges along the way. But nothing dreamt ever came easy, so get ready to fight. Put on your armor, you're strong enough, and step out the door. There are many who are waiting for your voice. Help others and share in the hope that together we can achieve anything. Stand up for those who can not stand up for themselves. And most importantly, don't ever let anyone tell you that you are anything less than amazing.
Love and Hugs!
