Let’s be honest in today’s society, how many times have you heard those two words?… Women empowerment have become the hashtag # trend and have become the daily hot topic 🔥 But what is your personal definition/ opinion of those two words? I had the pleasure in attending an event hosted by a dear friend Justine Alexander who lives in Mexico City. Her theme “women empowerment” MSXX1. A great event that gave the opportunity to many photographers to showcase their pictures of women. All donations and proceeds when to the foundation of Centro de Desarrollo Integral para la mujer Fatima A.C (link attached) http://www.fatimaac.com/quienes-somos.php
One word to describe the event.. Proud. You see my personal definition of women empowerment is this, Supportive, Kind, Loving, Strong and most importantly UNITY. When women support each other, incredible things happen. I love it when women love themselves. I love it when women inspire other women to love themselves. Acceptance on your status, life choices, age, education, current lifestyle in today’s society is crucial if you don’t fit in the “perfect women” picture. Young/ Single mothers, divorce, betrayed, insecurities, guarded, alone, failure, not good enough are all words that whether one or more apply to us, they have crossed our mind. As women we see ourselves in the mirror every day and absolutely no one can’t tell us anything we don’t critic ourselves already. Which is why I applaud every single person who goes out there to help and support others in whatever it is they need help or share encouraging words. I am beyond blessed to have friends who I have known since I came to the states and over decades of friendships that I value and appreciate. I want nothing but the best for every single one of them. Instead of competing and comparing our lives with others why not encourage each other, don’t fall into the fake lifestyle of what it’s supposed to be the perfect life goals for women. Time frames are based on no one besides your own, we all have different lives and made different choices. Single, divorce, married, in a relationship my advice is this, just be HAPPY. No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart. Don’t be so hard on yourself speaking from experience I can tell you this, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.
My friend Justine without knowing motivatived me to write this article and dedicate it to all the strong smart and passionate women in my life and around the world 🌎
Here’s my favorite picture of the event. It brings joy when I see it. It brings memories of my childhood, it brings me pure happiness to know there’s women empowerment in guiding, supporting, and encouraging the new generation to be kind, love and help one another.
“Here’s to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.” ❤️
