As a kid, I never felt I fit in. Mainly from girls being mean about my “huge muscles” when I was merely lean enough to see definition as a young dancer, gymnast, tomboy and athlete. I took it personally and it forced me to shrink myself down, which isn’t even something I realized until all these years later. Somehow, I always just felt outside of the circle, whatever that even means.
Likely because we’ve shifted our focus as a society (for the most part) and strong women are in and we’re not going anywhere! It’s fine if it doesn’t appeal to you or anyone else, but one word of advice is to steer clear out of my way, because I can’t hear that noise anymore.
Let us fast forward to today...girls wanna be IN my circle and feel the same confidence, strength and power I now realize I had all along...
Interesting to say the least...
Let us not raise our young impressionable daughters to feel “different” unless what makes them “different” can become a call to action and a force to be reckoned with.
Ladies-I urge you, stand up for what’s right, behave in such a way you’d be proud to have your girls follow your footsteps and let’s break the mother fkn mold already! Grateful to see, we’ve come so far already and one thing is for certain; we’re not going anywhere but up from here! Who’s with me?
Tag the ladies in your tribe that hold you accountable, push you to be better and encourage your growth! We’ve all got those special stars around us and I’m so very grateful for all of mine! 📸 @emomphoto
