As we continue to celebrate women’s history month, I want to shout out all women who are crushing their dreams. Wednesdays are designated as #WCW or women crush Wednesday. However daily women are failing, dusting themselves off and getting back out there and making it all happen.
Single women who are lonely and longing for relationship and finding ways to enjoy their single days and taking trips, starting businesses, becoming sound individuals without someone in their company. Those are daily women crushers. They want to be with someone but aren’t allowing the lack thereof to stop them. Until love finds them, they are out here making life happen for them under their own guidance, salute.
To the married woman who gives daily to her husband and attempting to be united, you are a daily woman crusher. People think that marriage is a cure-all but it’s not. It’s hard work to put someone else above your own. It’s a union that actually makes you confront a lot of who you are or who you think you are. Marriage is being there for someone and trying to keep the spark going regardless if that woman is tired or not, salute. FYI the same should be done from her husband towards her. If you find you are in a one way marriage, there are a few talks you and your husband need to have.
To the mother who is tired and feeling overwhelmed and still continues to get up before her house, getting things in order, and making it look effortless, you are a daily woman crusher. To the days when those around you takes you for granted, and forget to say sorry or appreciate what you done, salute to you. Salute to you when you lose yourself and literally have to pick yourself up before you can give again, salute to you. Salute to you as you endure your body going through hell and back to deliver, salute to you. Salute to you as you almost sometimes die on those tables waiting to hear that first cry, salute to you. Salute to the women who have lost life many times and feel like their worth is tied to being a mother and can’t. We salute you. Just know that is a real pain. A real fear. A real cry. A real emptiness and I stand behind you and with you.
To the business woman who has to have her work checked twice just because she doesn’t have the same “member” as those on her team, salute to you. Salute to the woman who is making moves after she was denied financing, salute to you. Salute to the woman whose ideas failed many times before it took off, salute. Salute to the woman who while accomplishing her goals, had the very folks who now want to stand with her after the fact and those same ones laughed, talked about, and ridiculed for that venture to pop, salute!
To the woman who has or is facing many demons and finding herself alone as she pushes towards getting her life together. The ones that seem and feel like constant failures while others around her is flourishing. The ones who say why not me too but they seem to be saying this only to themselves and there is no one around who understands you. We salute you. We get it. We understand because as a woman regardless of what we have all accomplished we have all been public goals and secret failures. Trust the process, understand that it will work out. Even in the dark, there will be light. At the second you go to fail, you find a solution. At the moment you decide today is the day you will give up, light shines. You are purpose and you were created for purpose. The world has something that you have inside of you. We salute the process of growing in the dark with limited water and resources. The best flowers sometimes have thorns but are the prettiest in the end. Don’t give up!
