You know what we need to do. We need to EMPOWER women. I don’t mean the typical empowerment that happens now , that we see on the daily but girl, don’t get me wrong… women right now are getting empowered & crushing it!! When I hear the word empowerment, to me it means opportunity, a chance to thrive, showing them a way to change their life.
I think if we really want to empower women, we need to show them opportunity; we need to allow our little girls to envision becoming greater than those before her and only by breaking the cycle ourselves. All too much I hear things like, I could never do this, I could never do that, all because we as a society I feel have hugely failed females by not providing them with things to empower themselves.
My hope is for women to understand that their path is not paved! That when opportunity presents itself you need to jump on it, and jump quick! You are not just a mother, daughter, sister; wife or whatever other label has been put on you. You are whatever the eff you want to be! Do not give up on your dreams that you had as a child, they aren’t dead and you are not done yet.
Instead of just talking the talk, it’s time to walk the damn walk and empower women by showing them how to build a legacy, how to leave a lasting mark and how to run the world!
Let’s employ to empower, let’s build businesses, houses and raise children that know the value of our power! Empower yourself so you can empower our future female leaders.
