I love to help other women feel strong. Obviously in my profession, but also in my personal life. Whether it is my friends, my daughters, my daughters friends, my mom, my mom’s friends, my clients or ad infinitum, I want to provide inspiration for a happier life for each of us. I am not talking about that bra-burning “I am woman” stuff of the seventies. ( Although I like it a lot.) I am talking about the loving sisterhood of respect. Honoring each other’s choices with love. I know this is my mission it is important! The most healthy societies are those in which women feel empowered.
On any given day each of us can be can be feeling frumpy and fat, fairly frustrated, ferociously feminine, freakishly fanatic, feverishly fetching, fabulously fit, forthright and free, fashionably funky, about any other “f” word you might like to add. Sometimes I can be all of these in one day.
Remember this: Let’s love ourselves, and each other. Let’s support one another’s choices. Let’s make room in our lives for friends, fashion, fun, fitness, food, freedom and fabulousness. Let’s compliment each other more. Let’s hug! By offering a bit of ourselves, we make room each of us to shine a little brighter. We grow happier. We grow stronger. We GROW! And we sparkle! We feel whole. It takes nothing away from me to tell my friend how pretty or smart she is.
I am giving a directive, it will change your life. Offer a sincere compliment to another woman, one a day for a week. Find something good about your friends, sisters, co-workers, teachers, whomever you want! Make a genuine observation and say it! It changes the recipient, for the moment or the day. It changes the giver, forever.
