Love Yourself—Rock Your World!

Inspiration, Interaction, and Support
“I’m not the average girl from your video. And I ain’t built like a supermodel.
But I learned to love myself unconditionally. Because I am a queen…
So go on and shine. Clear your mind. Now is the time. Go on and love yourself.
Cause everything’s gonna be alright.”
—India Arie, Video

Do you get juiced by inspiring words?

Does your mind light up when you hear new and different thoughts?

Behind your eyes is there a “YOU” that’s been hiding for much too long?
Is it time to step out and find the strength that’s been inside of you all along?*

Have you been putting off your living for tomorrow?

Is it time to claim your courage, and live the life of your dreams?*
Have you been running too fast to stop and listen?
Is it time to slow down, and listen to the wisdom in your soul?*

Did you ever wonder if everything you’ve been searching for
outside of you has been inside of you all along?

Are you ready to claim your own strength, courage, and wisdom?*
Are you tired of swirling around guys, and want more time
with girlfriends interacting about stuff that matters?

Do you have tears to shed, stories to tell, and power to express?

DailyOM: Womens Support

Women's Support
Becoming Our Own Role Models
There was a time where women stood together in a bond of sisterhood, women supporting women.

As women embrace the fullness of who they are as individuals, they may find themselves supporting other women, helping others to reach the level of inner comfort and outer freedom that they themselves have found. Among those who are less sure of themselves and their place in the world, it may be more common to criticize other women than to seek their help. But there are things that a woman can only learn from another woman, as there are things about being a man that can only be learned from other men. We all recognize that we have much to learn from each other regardless of gender, but sometimes we could use a supportive role model that gives us a more precise example of what and who we can become.

There was a time where women stood together in a bond of sisterhood, women supporting women. It is only natural that the pendulum swings out of balance for a while so that we may have the experience of what we do not want. It is up to women to bring the pendulum back into balance and bring back the sacred sisterhood we yearn for at our core.

If we envision a world where women support each other and help each other find their place in an ever-changing world, then we can become the change we want to see. Jealousy, envy, criticism, and judgment are refuges for the insecure. As we help others to become self-assured, we create a world in which all people help each other, regardless of gender. Only women can make the change in how women are seen and understood, not just by other women but by the world at large. The way we speak about each other to other women and to the men in our lives informs everyone to treat us with the respect that all women, and all people, deserve.
