Part 1: Leading A Life You Want & Deserve
It has been said through the grapevine that women “cannot have it all.” In fact, many still argue strongly that women are only placed on this Earth to procreate and take care of their significant other (I am referencing husbands here). What do you think? Is the worth and value of a woman’s life dependent upon what she can give?
The answer is HELL NO!
I say this confidently and boldly as woman, as a mother, as a wife, and as an educated business owner. There is no reason why women should place their capabilities into “piggy holes”. Women are unique creatures, which have been gifted with many unique talents.
If you are a woman reading this post, marinate on this, what other being on this Earth can give birth to a 9lb baby (in my case be sliced and diced), return home, still take care of the baby, maintain the home, contribute to the household financially, still be expected to cook and be intimate with her partner, and keep her sanity? No other being on this Earth could if they tried.
It is expected that “we” as women maintain all these roles while men are to fulfill only two roles: the provider and protector.
Women have become weary and some even jaded with their multiple roles. The feel overwhelmed, tired, unappreciated, and unloved because they are fulfilling roles. . . not out of purpose but because it is expected.
Now, in my household I am all of these roles plus some and a bag chicks with a coke on the side. But seriously, I choose to fulfill these roles. I am actually happy to be the super woman in my home. The daily challenge of fulfilling these roles forces me to be a better version of myself for me and for those who I come into contact with on a day-to-day basis.
But, if you are not happy where you are in your life, your position, your role in life , then you need to create and lead a life you want and deserve.
Everything, I am about to share with you is how I created the life I always dreamed of.
How to Create A Life You Want & Deserve
• Must identify who you are. You must understand WHO you are first. If you do not understand who you are, you will never understand the gifts and talents you possess and the value of them. You will just be operating in auto-pilot mode, living day-to-day because you have no clue who you are and what you should be doing.
• Must know what you want. This is a biggie ladies. Often times we are miserable because we have no clue what we want and we want someone else to tell us what we want. No one can get in your head but YOU and GOD. Spend time with self and really reflect on what makes you happy. Hell, marinate on when the last time you where actually happy. The things that keeps a smile on our face is usually what we want deep down but we don’t go after it because we feel unworthy to receive it.
• Must know where you are headed. Now no one can predict the future but if you claim and declare the direction you want your life to go, you will make the universe work for you! Its all about speaking it, claiming it, believing it, and visualizing it. “Without vision, there can be no future.” Today map out a plan on where you see yourself in the next 7 days, 30 days, 6 months, 5 years, and so forth.
• Must know when to act. Often times we get excited about change and we are ready to dive in. But sometimes we need to sit down and really have a serious conversation with yourself. With the purpose you have discovered and the vision you have mapped out you need to really ask yourself “is it the time to act now?” Sometimes when we act hastily we fall flat on our butts. You need to evaluate all factors in your life. How will pursuing what you want and feel you deserve affect the grand scheme of things in your life?
Once you identify all these factors you can put them all to work and take action when the time is appropriate for you. When we do things out of purpose it gives a new sense of joy, peace, and purpose. We are renewed and reenergized to conquer the world! Most importantly, you will be leading a life you want and deserve.
