Too many women today are wasting their precious lives.
Watching screens, watching their waists, watching their words. We are born into the world, given our role and told to toe the line. When we speak up, we are bold (and bad). When we follow suit, we are weak and dependent. When we want to be loved and express a desire, we are needy, clingy. When we lead, we are bossy, bitchy. When we fuck, we are sluts. When we don’t, we are prudish. We are too big or too thin, too harsh or too quiet. Roles, rules, rituals. All given to us.
Its time to choose. Our own roles. Our own rules. Our own rituals. Its time to riot. Its time for a revolution.
For ourselves. For our daughters. For our sons.
I’m tired of seeing the lights of a brilliant woman dimmed by her judgement of herself. I’m tired of her brilliant mind overruled with thoughts of pant sizes and fake lashes. Her day is ruled by the constant battle over what to eat when to eat, what to feed the kids. Of busting her ass from sun up to sun down and still it never being enough.
To the woman who does it all, I see you.
You think you are overwhelmed because your plate is full. But I believe you are overwhelmed because you spend so much of your time and energy focused on what you have been told to do, say, feel and be. It feels so real. It feels like it has to be that way. But in the rare moments when you are alone and silent, you know the truth. Deep down, you know that its all bullshit. You know there must be another way. You know you are enough.
You just don’t know how to be that way and still live in this world.
I say its time for this world to end. I declare it’s time to rise up and take back our inner power. It is time to stop the wasting away of our intellect, our beauty, our power and our freedom to do, choose, say, BE whoever the fuck we want to be.
Where do we start?
It’s an inside job. You can’t change the world around you if you don’t change the world within you.
We start with your body. This isn’t about loving it the way it is and ignoring its needs. It’s about learning what that your body needs, listening to its calls and ANSWERING THEM.
We start with consumption. What you eat, what you hear, what you watch, what you say, who you allow in your temple of worthiness.
We start with your mind. Learning to take control of your thoughts and emotions. Left to its own devices, our minds are often the scene of a constant street fight where we are our own worst enemy. But look within and harness it – and your mind becomes your most powerful weapon and your greatest gift.
We start with knowledge. That you were born with the power to heal every part of who you are by merely asking for it to be so, learning how to harness it and then doing the fucking work.
Who is with me?
