I see different sizes, races, ethnicity, religion and colours of women, and all speak of beauty. Today I address you as beautiful to remind you of the uniqueness you carry and encourage you to be proud of who you are or who you are becoming.
Women you are all created beautifully unique for a peculiar purpose.
All through life you are nurturers, taking care of husbands, children and grandchildren.
The wonderful act of growing people and bringing out the very best in them rests on you solely.
Wonder what the world would have been without you all, anyway God knew better and acted appropriately.
You are all wonderfully and fearfully made.
Please permit me to share my understanding of what being a woman means to me and my belief is that this will help you own the truth of who you are. In my young journey as a girl and becoming a woman. I have learnt few truths that are keen to most women:
1) Accept – accepting who you are is the first step of womanhood.
2) Love – learn to love yourself. Stop waiting for someone to love you. Learn to love yourself and the easiest way, is to develop an intimate relationship with your Creator – God.
3) Take responsibility – as much as we blame the society, family, culture and religion on how women are marginalized even in marriage; we need to take responsibility of the part we played or are still playing in this. Then ask yourself; can I change the narrative in my environment?
4) Be the difference – as a woman, I have learnt that complaining of the situation has never changed a thing. But finding ways to proffer solution is the best way to be the difference we need.
Everyone respects results/solutions. Use your talent to create a change and a path for other people especially women.
I am using my voice to change the narrative in marriage, family unit and society.
Dear beautiful, are you blossoming in your space or waiting for someone to do it for you?
