ON BEING A STRONG WOMAN

I have heard and read the words of many strong, powerful, transparent women out there….but I have also experienced the cruel, harsh, degrading words of others. I think strength can be easy to define yet difficult to live. We all have bad days where we feel like less that nothing, but we also have amazing days where no one or no thing can bring us down. As a creative it is especially hard, and I feel like I don’t bear the weight of those bad days as well. It’s easy for me to see people who are living their dream full-time and immediately feel a little let down with myself. That is dumb. So dumb. I am sure many others struggle with the same thing regardless of what field or career path you are in. These same feelings can attack us in all areas of life whether it be friendships, marriage, health, etc. I have so many dreams and aspirations and there is so much I want to achieve in life, but those same aspirations can be crippling. I think it is important to approach those dreams on a daily basis, to not get let down when something doesn’t work out, and to not walk away unless you feel completely at peace with your decision. Most of all, don’t give up because of something someone else did or said. It is a cut-throat world out there and many people are willing to take shortcuts and use harsh words to get their way. I don’t want to be known as the woman who cheated her way to the top, I want to be known for my loyalty and integrity. You don’t have to fake a smile, you don’t have to be someone else, you don’t have to please everyone. You can be both unique and strong and I guarantee that version of you will be the best version you’ve ever known.
