My beginning phrase might be controversial to some being that it is "International Women's Day" but I hope the deeper meaning will be received in my statement...
"I wish we lived in a world where there didn't need to be a day to underline a special group of human beings to be celebrated and acknowledged. I wish we lived in a world where every human being was celebrated every day equally and lived with gratitude in their hearts for the miracle it was to be human."
But since we don't, I will share a special poem I wrote on this "International Women's Day" as an homage to all the extraordinary women in my life that are role models for me...and no, none of them are celebrities. The Beyoncés, J-Los and the lots of Kardashians didn't make the cut.
I am talking about the every day, real women that struggle through this world without fame or fortune in their wake and manage to spread light and love even when their lives seem filled with darkness.
And pure gold
You're all these things
And so much more
Deserves and encore
For some of you...
You dim your light
To let others shine
To catch the love
They leave behind
The inner words
You use inside
They dim your light
They false your mind
Starting now and moving forward
See yourself through my eyes
For the brightness I see before me
Captures your limitless mind
Know that all is possible
No matter what you think today
The only limits you'll ever come across
Are the ones you put in your way.
Be "everything" you want to be
No matter what they say
After all, only you can create life
That's the miracle they can't take away.
Happy International Women's Day!
The following song, "A Stronger Mind" was written for all of the women in my life that are the role models of my existence. It speaks of how important it is to have positive affirmations for our minds and to sow seeds of love and gratitude within our hearts and minds. The mind is a very powerful tool. Used wisely, it can grant us access to a world of opportunities and bring forth everything we've ever wished for.
I dedicate it to all of the special women in my world xoxo
