Sitting at my desk creating images and content on International Women's Day for my soical media platforms and as I am expressing myself with my words, I have realised that I have reached my words limit which is a surprise as I tend not to go over my limitation. Anyway, here is my first blog due to the words limitation on my social platform which has directed me into publishing my first blog post.
I was raised by a strong black mother, who taught me to stand up for what I believe in and what was right. I was taught to have compassion for others and there's no room for hate, to work for what I want and if on the road I travel on seems dark and bleak to turn to the the Lord for guidance and wisdom.
I was raised by a strong black mother who taught me to be independent, to ask questions as there's no silly questions. A mother who taught me that to have no fear as the Lord is by my side, that the world is not always kind and fair but I should be. Taught to walk into a room like I own it with my head held high. I was raised by a strong black woman.
I have a sister who reminds me that I got this when I can not sometimes say it to myself. When I can't be my number 1 cheerleader, she's on the bench ready to be tagged in. I am blessed to have and be surrounded by strong females in my life, from my family to my circle of friends to the small community of women in business I talk with and deal with. The admiration I have for us, women is indescribable.
We shouldn't just have a day but every day as we have overcome, one step closer to change that the women before us were marching, fighting, protesting for. The waves we are making is non stop, it will be a Tsunami. So, I sign off with
"I was raised by a STRONG BLACK QUEEN.
I AM a STRONG BLACK QUEEN.
I will raise STRONG BLACK QUEENS and WE are ALL STRONG QUEENS, may we know that and may we raise STRONG QUEENS that create their own path, live their own truth and fix each other crowns.
