Women Enpowerment 💕

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.

Imperfect 🌪

Imperfect: Not perfect; faulty or incomplete.

All of us are in different stages in life. We may have different strengths and weaknesses, but there isn’t a single person on the planet who hasn’t felt vulnerable or made mistakes. Nor is there a single person who couldn’t be better at something in some area of their life.

While hiding your flaws or pretending to be something or someone you’re not can fool many people and many try to live their lives this way- true  comes from being your authentic self. Don’t be ashamed or afraid of being imperfect. There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections. My motivational quote for today is from J.O something I often do now that I’m older and wiser I am my own cheerleader-flaws and all.

“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”

Inner child 🎀

A sculptor of two adults after a disagreement, sitting with their backs to each other. Yet, the inner child in both of them simply wants to connect. Age has many beautiful gifts but one we could live without is the pride and resentment we hold onto when we have conflicts with others. The forgiving, free spirit of children is our true nature. Remember this when you feel stubborn. Learn the art of growing without losing your inner child.

If we all could see the world through the eyes of a child, we would see the magic in everything💕

The art of giving ❤️

“Sometimes we love the wrong person so we can realize how much love we are capable of giving. They need love and we have the ability to give it. So we are allowed the opportunity to give it. But we take their inability to love us with the same intensity as a sign that something about us is hard to love. We call the whole experience a mistake because we gave more than what we received in return. We regret giving so much of ourselves because we were left in pain wondering why what we gave was not valued or appreciated. Just remember this: the love that you give never goes to waste. And if you were able to love the wrong person so much, imagine how much you’re going to love the right person. Just know when to walk away. When giving them love is hurting your love for yourself, don’t think for one moment that walking away is the wrong decision. You are not giving up on them by walking away, but if you stay, you might be giving up on yourself.”

Don’t give up on yourself. Don’t fall victim of being afraid of being alone, it’s often when we have no one but ourselves that we discover who we really are and what we want out of life.

Key 🗝

One morning she woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, against her, or walking down the middle because they didn’t have the guts to pick a side. She was done with anything that didn’t bring her peace. She realized that opinions were a dime a dozen, validations was for parking, and loyalty wasn’t a word but a lifestyle. This day her life changed, not because of a man, or a job, but because she realized life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.🔐

No matter what you choose always choose your happiness.💕
