I was reflecting today on women who have had to endure some really brutal past to become not just strong but pillars for others to lean on.
Some of these women have been through series of abusive relationships, been imprisoned, suffered the weight of shame and were constantly reminded from those with authority over them that they would not amount to anything.
Some of them have been told over and again that their business idea will not succeed. Others have dared to hope that one day their dreams will come true even though the odds were notoriously stacked against them.
Today these women have gone on to achieve their goals and are now paving the way for others. Their stories remind me that we are all ‘diamonds in the rough.
I’m inspired by their resilience in the face of pain, their perseverance when sometimes there was no reference point for success, their courage to defy the odds, their unquenchable spirit to keep giving back when they could have settled for safe and quiet. Most of all I’m reminded that even I, CAN MAKE IT.
I’m thankful, I’ve not had to go through anything like what they experienced, which is all the more a reminder that it’s possible for me to achieve my hopes and dreams irrespective of what shape and colour they come in.
This brings me to you! I hope you’ve not had to endure such tumultuous times, but if you have, there’s hope and the sky is the limit for your possibilities. Don’t hold yourself back.
You have warrior women who have gone ahead of you and are going ahead. Stand on their success stories as you navigate your way; don’t give up due to the pain of your storm; remember you have an army of supporters cheering you on!
And when you’re tired of hoping and striving, let these women’s courage and unquenchable spirit remind you that your success supersedes you; you’re living not just for you but for generations yet to come and for those people whose lives will change because of your stayed the course. Let your success be the fire that lights other people’s torch, like these women have lit ours.
Nothing is as fierce as a woman determined.
To you, an unstoppable woman.
