Expectations that as a gender you should carry yourself, speak or dress a certain way have long tied women down to an ideal. We are held by different standards in society because of old world thinking and preconceived notions imposed by society. Many of us follow the pack. Easier than going against the grain.
May West said “When I’m good, I’m very good, but when I’m bad, I’m better.”
This year, I’ve been good. Taken care of myself, my family and stuck to my values – this will not change. I’ve been loyal to myself and loved ones. I checked off all the boxes. However, I have been little bad. I haven’t been naughty in a manner of being mean or in the way mainstream would assume. Instead, I’ve challenged myself to defy the opinion of others. When told, I can’t do something, it sets off an alarm. I’m determined to dream big and never give up my pursuit to attain goals.
Naysayers may doubt abilities to succeed. Skeptics could imply it’s a far reach to accomplish goals set forth. Executing the work will take time, planning and patience. Failures will turn into lessons. Uncertainty of one’s capability will be used to fuel determination. Find true purpose it will drive the passion.
It’s never too late to find what makes you happy. You can always start working on a new goal. We can set the world on fire by believing in ourselves. Break boundaries, challenge the roles where you’ve lost your identities and create the life envisioned. Be relentless in search for the happiest you, possible.
I’m learning that proving to myself, I can accomplish my goals is more important than showing everyone else what I can do.
Be nice to your family, friends and everyone that crosses your path. Being naughty doesn’t have to be behaving badly. Use it as a spark that sends you on the next adventure to a brave, greater you!
Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings to you and yours.
