Women who support, love, promote and encourage one another, are a beautiful, beautiful breed.
And there is no stopping us and what we can achieve, when we have this such network around us.
It’s a horrible thing then, that many women are taught from when they are as young as little girls, that the female race is the enemy. They are their competition, their opponent. They must be better than them, and fight to the death to
get that job.
get that guy.
get that attention.
get that scholarship.
get that money.
and on and on and on it goes.
It’s a sad thing. Because I’ve realised over the years, that there is more than enough
FOR EVERYONE. It is called abundance, and there are so many out there, men and women alike, who act like they’re at the fish markets and bargaining with the fish monger over who is going to get the last piece of salmon at the best possible price.
But there are tubs and tubs of fresh salmon rolling in behind them.
I decided a long time ago I was only going to surround myself with these beautiful supportive women as much as I possibly could, but MOST importantly I was going to be one of them too – I was going to be supportive and helpful, loving and nurturing, passionate and inspiring, helping them through good times and bad, and just being there, whether it was to help them be the best person they could be, be that sidekick to dance or laugh with them, or be a shoulder to cry on when things got tough.
I am really lucky, that I have such beautiful women like this in my life. And by having them, baby girl is blessed…
Because she has them too. Not only are they my sidekicks, cheerleaders and personal superheroes, but they are automatically and unequivocally, her IDOLS. Leaders. Role Models.
And they are the cream of the crop.
Today I had some of my cousins over, AKA ‘The Sisters.’ And I realised as we chatted, laughed, had some meaningful convo about life and love and choosing the right colour paint for kitchen cupboards, that not only was I lucky, but baby girl was too. She is growing up in a family of strong, courageous, passionate, confident, funny, sassy and smart women, and it brings me such joy that this positive energy has been around her from day dot.
You know the icing on the cake? We are expecting another little one to the family soon…
Those hands are hiding a baby. A baby girl.
Go Girl Power 🙂
