This month is National Women's Month and I am so excited and looking forward to watching and reading all of the wonderful tributes to women and womanhood that will be presented this month. I have to wonder though in all that is to come, how much conversation will be shared on the importance of woman working together and maintaining healthy relationships.
As women we wear many hats; some of us are wives, mothers, business and career women, sisters, friends and confidants. I've found that in addition to relationships with our significant others relationships with each other often seem to be those that are most taxing in our lives.
Maneuvering through life as I mentioned earlier, means that we are going through our day to day lives, fulfilling obligations to all often times neglecting to live in the moment, stopping to "smell the roses." In the midst of the hustle and bustle we sometimes neglect to see the needs of others, especially other women.
I hear it all the time from our own, "I don't like women, we just don't get along, we women are too emotional, everything is always a competition, women are so catty...etc., etc." We have so much power as women. If only we worked together in society and nurtured healthy, loving relationships with one another we would not only "run the world" but we could truly change this world for the better.
This National Women's Month I challenge you to not only let your light shine and relish in your womanhood, but I invite you to breathe air onto another woman's small flicker and help her little light grow into a FLAME.
Together we can sing “This Girl is On FIRE!!”
