Don’t wait until you physically and mentally cannot continue on your own before you call in support. Ask yourself what about your limitations can be complimented by another’s strengths. Build good, solid support networks and value relationship building in business as much as you value your goals.
If every woman can own her divine worth and worthiness to achieve and live a fulfilled life in every way in all of her roles, she will be able to parent in a whole way, building a new version of willful, independent thinkers, through her children. If every woman can believe so wholly in her capabilities, that she does not question herself or allow the system to question her, we will be able to collectively infiltrate limiting systems.
TOTAL SUPPORT FOR THE VOICELESS who have been born into systems, that have already de-voiced them and have unconsciously accepted ill and inequitable treatment as the norm.
