33 Choices Every Woman Should Make

In a few days, I will celebrate my 33rd birthday so I’ve been taking time to reflect over all that I’ve experienced and learned thus far. Perhaps one of the best lessons life has taught me is that my choices are what shape my life. Over the years, I can see how my relationships, health, career, and finances improved as my choices improved. Although every woman has different goals, these are 33 choices I think all women should make to be happier, healthier, and more successful in their lives and careers. Choose to love yourself more than your desire to be liked, accepted, or validated by others. Choose to do what you know is in your best interest even when...

LOVE IS A SUPERPOWER

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23 When I would read this Bible verse as a bitter and broken person, I understood it to mean that I should protect myself from people to avoid being heartbroken. Reading it now as a whole and healed woman, I understand it to mean that I should be careful of allowing my heart to grow bitter from uncontrollable life experiences. I have a lot of reasons to be bitter, but I make the choice not to be. I can make plenty of excuses for avoiding connecting with new people and building new relationships, but I choose not to. I can be a hurt person who passes my hurt...

Different Women Show Support Differently

These days, especially in the world of social media, it seems that it’s hard to miss a day when you don’t see or hear someone expressing how women should support each other more.

What I have learned is that people often have expectations of others that can’t or won’t be met. I have also learned that people show love and define support differently. Support is not just or always likes and comments on social media, nor is just or always someone buying something for or...

Fact Check Your Thoughts

 So, I was traveling through the airport the other day and saw a woman at the departure gate, breast out, feeding her infant. Now, I know that the debate on whether breastfeeding in public is normal or inappropriate is not new, but as I’m not a mother yet and hadn’t actually seen what it looks like in person, I really hadn’t given it much thought or come to a conclusion about how I feel about it. Admittedly, the very first thought that popped in my head when I did see it with my own eyes was, “that’s weird”. If I didn’t know what I know now, I probably would have moved to where I could no longer see what,...

Keys to Becoming the Woman You Really Want to Be

Believe it or not, supporting and celebrating other women that look like me didn’t always come as naturally to me as it does now. I didn’t always understand why that was, but today I know that it’s due to a few things. One, I didn’t grow up with a close relationship to my mother. Our dysfunctional relationship and the disappointment I felt stemming from our relationship started me off with a negative perspective of other women. Secondly, I was bullied by girls that looked like me in elementary and high school. Also, as an adult, I’ve had my share of negative interactions with women from being ostracized to being betrayed. Those combined experiences caused me to put up walls to...
