Stop Abdicating Own Your Amazement!
Woman's Era|April 2021
Wear it and live it with confidence!

There is incredible potential in female natives of the African continent, that’s going unnoticed. The pandemonium of stereotypes ruling societal consciousness makes it hard to acknowledge the strength of women's power.

The one choice that can change your life forever is to own who you truly are. Own your dreams and believe it’s possible to achieve them. There might be real obstacles like lack of skills or experience, financial constraints, child responsibility, lack of time, health deficits, etc; yet if you believe it’s possible, the way to achieve them will automatically present itself before you. Often what is holding us back from living a life true to ourselves are our insecurities, fear, familiarity, lack of self-worth, painful past experiences, lack of awareness, lack of confidence in ourselves, lack of advocating women representations in a professional capacity, etc. Once we learn to get in touch with our inner-self and give ourselves the gift of acceptance whether it’s for our weaknesses or strengths, we can drive ourselves out of whatever is holding us back from living our best life.

Challenging the status quo will not be an easy experience but have remarkable benefits in women empowerment. But the only thing that will help you sustain the process is willpower and belief in yourself and the confidence to reject anything that drives you off the needed change.

Be the chess player, not the chess piece.

Make yourself a priority. We often give others a special place in our lives and forget we are special too. The best way to practice making yourself a priority is to spend some time each day doing activities you enjoy doing. It can be really simple like drinking coffee or tea from your favourite mug or playing your favourite music at least once a day. These little things will ignite a spark of freshness within you and make you more joyful. Moreover, these simple activities will help you understand and get in touch with your self-worth that you lost in the process of valuing others more than yourself.
