Sisters we arewonderfully and fearfully made and we can do all things through christ that strengthens us…we are independent.September 23, 2019 at 6:17 pm #4212Participant
Hi dear, how you doing today, feel like giving up; right?? I know, I’m a woman too. So you got to believe me when I say this; don’t give up, keep fighting and pushing, you might be close or far, but you surely get there. How am I so sure you say, well let me tell you.
You’re a woman, to come this far, you hard to format and reprogram. You had to break out of the society definition of a woman, find who you are on your own( through sweat, pains, tears, and laughter) before you could come back into the society to show them who a woman is.
So you see, you can’t give up now, you still have a lot to do by helping the lost girls out there become a woman not just by giving birth, but by knowing who we truly are.September 23, 2019 at 6:29 pm #4213Participant
Since the beginning of time
We’ve been set up against each other
They said we could never make it
They said we couldn’t do it together
So they made us fight for one spot at the top
A spot they never intended to give us at all
Since the break of dawn
We’ve been set to tear down each other
They said if only I pulled your hair hard enough
They said if only you smeared my lipstick bad enough
Just maybe either of us would get a sit at the table
A sit they never drew for us at all
It’s dusk now
With torn stitches and smeared lipstick
With broken heels and pulled out extensions
A break of sweat running down my face
Ashamed I ever let a job or man come in between us
Ashamed I ever dragged your head down when I should’ve lifted it up
Ashamed I chose war over peace
Forgive me for ever fighting you for a sit or spot you most rightly deserved
If only all we did was love and build each other up
If only all we did was stand by one another
There wouldn’t be scarcity of our kind at the top
There wouldn’t be a few of us at the table.
I don’t think we deserve just a sit at the table
I think we deserve the entire table.
It’s dawn again
It’s time to get back out there
It’s time to fight for what is ours
This time, we do it together!September 24, 2019 at 6:54 am #4214Participant
The beautiful talented lady at the back.
From the look on your face I can tell that you’re tired and you’re on the verge of giving up.
I know it hasn’t been easy. And I know that things are a bit harder for us women most times.
But do you know the good thing? You have a tried that supports you and is rooting for you always.
I support you. I want to see you win and I believe you’ll win, because you’re a fighter, you’re resilient and you’re committed.
I’m behind you every step of the way.
On your good days, I support you and on your bad days, I encourage you.
Just always know that:
I will inspire you to succeed
I will connect you to the right people and sources
I will empower you to go after your dreams.September 24, 2019 at 11:35 am #4226Participant
Who would have thought?
That Your tenacity? doggedness, hope, fight and your never-give-up spirit will lead you here.
Lots of your clan had paid the price.
Now it is finally and genuinely becoming the women’s world.
Your cries had been heard, your hard work paid off.
Relax and enjoy the ride. This has come to stay.
Welcome to the century where women rule.
We are women! We are the salt of the world
We rule the world.
We are phenomenal!
We are visionary!
We build with everything we have.
We nurture till we see the glimpse of hope give birth to reality.
We are one, we are all
We are me
We are phenomenal women.
I am a phenomenal woman.September 24, 2019 at 12:02 pm #4227Participant
I see you.
We see you.
We appreciate your hustle and your efforts. You are on the path to make something meaningful out of your life.
With your business, your skill or school.
Keep up with the good work.
The sweat will pay off very soon and the slay will be worth it.
As you lay your edges and apply your foundation, make sure the foundation of what makes you aspire to be a woman of substance is strong and unshaken.
As your draw your brows, write down your goals and work towards achieving it.
Wake up everyday and make sure you are better than who you were yesterday.
As you pick your outfits and plan your outlook, remember to use Google, your dictionary, YouTube and every thing out there to better yourself.
Find inspiration from everywhere rather than a reason to hate. Be a cheerleader, a guide and a support to the next sister beside you.
You can have it all.
Don’t be deceived by naysayers and those who give you derogatory tags.
If your hustle is legit, own it with pride.
The same one you will use to smile to the bank.
The brothers are complaining of liabilities, Sis let’s pursue the “bar” too and raise the bar even higher, so that only those deserving will kneel before you with a ring or crown.
Single, married, not searching, employed, figuring things out or whatever your status is,
Don’t settle for anything but greatness.
I see you SIS.
If no one celebrates you, don’t forget I am your biggest fan.September 24, 2019 at 1:28 pm #4228Participant
Dear Excellency of dignity,
Your worth far more than diamonds.
We trust you without reserve,
and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, you treat people generously
all your life long.
you shops around for the best yarns and cottons,
and enjoys knitting and sewing.
You’re like a trading ship that sails to faraway places
and brings back exotic surprises.
You’re up before dawn, preparing breakfast
for your family(whether married or single) and organizing her day.You look over a field and buys it,
then, with money you put aside, plants a garden.
First thing in the morning, you dresses for work,
rolls up your sleeves, eager to get started.
You sense the worth of your work,
is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
You’re skilled in the crafts of home (whether married or single)and hearth,
diligent in homemaking.
You’re quick to assist anyone in need,
reaches out to help the poor.
You don’t worry about your family when it snows;
their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
You make your own clothing,
and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Your clothes are well-made and elegant,
and always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When you speak you have something worthwhile to say because you speak with wisdom,
and you always says it kindly.
You keeps an eye on everyone in your household,
and keeps them all busy and productive.
“Many people have done wonderful things,
but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
This woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God and service to humanity.
Give her everything she deserves!
Festoon her life with praises!September 24, 2019 at 1:35 pm #4229Participant
I celebrate you always!.September 24, 2019 at 6:36 pm #4230Participant
Except to heaven, I am nought; Except for angels, lone; Except to some widewandering bee, A flower superfluous blown; Except for winds, provincial; Except by butterflies, Unnoticed as a single dew That on the acre lies. Who are you to say that being a lady, in itself, is not its own kind of war.
Do you not know that I am a woman? When I think, I must speak!
I am my own woman.
My words speak straight to the core but my absence will leave you speechless.September 24, 2019 at 11:26 pm #4231Participant
I heard you had a very busy day today, finishing up with your clients and still had to have your regular Monday evening staff meeting. Hope you were able to meet up at the crèche before 7pm to pick up the baby and hope she’s doing very well. How did you cope with making dinner since the maid left without notice, I know Oga is out of town so you’re all alone and you had to mark present with the late night call because of the different time zones. You still won’t let go of your teens Biblestudy group because in your words “if I don’t do it who will?”Babe I see you everyday juggle all these roles and you still come to the office looking like Beyoncé, she got nothing on you darling.
I just thought to stop by to tell you you’re amazing, strong, a force the world hasn’t fully understood. Your super power is Woman and you pull it off so effortlessly well done babe!
Your fellow super womanSeptember 25, 2019 at 10:50 am #4233Participant
Do you know the vast diversity of your being?
Do you know the lengths of your strength?
Do you know the essence of your existence?
Do you know there can be no world without you?
The beauty of your virtue, flowers the earth.
The softness of your voice cools the fire man breathes.
The arm you stretch forth molds the generations that rule the world.
Your eyes sees the utopia, the world could be. Oh! If man could see through it.
Birthing the greatest of the greats, you do not relent.
The love in your heart, knows no bounds.
So I would tell you today,
I love you, for who you are.
“Nâshı̂ym” that was what man called you.
Look in the mirror my dear, streams of royalty pump through your veins.
You are a Queen.
Woman.September 25, 2019 at 10:54 am #4238Participant
I have longed to have the opportunity to talk with you. I hope this letter meets you doing well.
I write to you because like you, I longed for understanding, support, and acceptance. I longed to be seen, heard, accepted, valued, celebrated, and simply be allowed to BE.
I see you, I see your struggles, I feel you, I feel you pain. I see you, I see your beauty, strength, courage. Yet, I feel the pressure under which you operate, which seems to diminish you, make you almost invisible.
I have longed to write to you because I have come to understand that you are the one who needs to be your number one student and teacher, and greatest supporter and cheerleader. I want to tell you that you are already enough in yourself, just because you are here, and you are HUMAN. I speak to you today to go back into your history, your experiences and your subconscious, to touch again those files you hid away because they cause you pain whenever you recall them.
I write to let you know that you are strong and able to face those giants and demons of your past, and to draw lessons and strength from them, discard the lies and HEAL YOURSELF of the wounds inflicted on you by the wrong stories and images of you that you have held because you listened to others and neglected the true voice, your own voice.
Dear woman, who lied to you that you are inferior? Who made you think you deserve less? Who made you afraid of the strong presence and aura of your type? Why did they do it and why do you respond the way you do to your type?
Let me help you unravel and demystify this ‘mystery ‘.
Imagine you as a servant or a slave , you will do all in your power to please your master. What if your fellow servant or slave seemed to gain some points with the ‘master’such that they are upgraded before your very eyes, and you now have to serve them too? How would you feel if they became very confident and carried themselves graciously and elegantly? Envious, intimidated? Perhaps even hateful and spiteful? Here lies the reason for our perceived fight with the fellow woman, fights that take different colours, textures and presentations. It stems from a faulty perception of what a woman represents in the mind and subconscious.
Now, woman, can you see the trap society has you in? By telling you you are inferior to the boy child, you internalized that subservient position. You buried yourself to let the perceived master shine. You were told to be a good woman, you must abide by the codes of conducts. Subconsciously, to prove your worth, you took on the role of custodian of morals for the womenfolk. You needed to be seen. You longed to be heard. You yearned for validation, you desired to be valued.
Today, I write to tell you, you are as intelligent, smart, courageous, strong and beautiful as any one here. Stop the internal fight. No woman is your enemy. They lied to you. Be you. You are free. You don’t need that validation. Her strength does not reduce you, it proves you right. I know I am putting out too much for one day for you, but I need you to rise! I need you to challenge the narrative, I need you to go back to undo the lies in your mind you believed. Do this for you, do this for the little girl next door, your daughter and all girls. Do this for the future girl child. You, woman, are enough. You are because nature does not create a waste. You are original like every one on earth, shine, queen. Fill our senses with the lovely aura of your fragrance.
You are great! Celebrate your greatness dear woman.
With much love and respect, I celebrate you.
A woman.September 25, 2019 at 11:11 am #4243Participant
I know deep down lies so many fears, hurts, betrayal and pains. I know how you feign happiness because you do not want to be pitied. I know your response I am fine speaks so much of how unfine you are.
I know you have gotten an escape route to all of your pains
I know you feel bitter about being single
I know you feel bitter of not having a good career
I know you feel bitter about not having children to call you mama yet
I know you feel bitter about having to bear the financial brunt of the family alone
I know you just wish all is very fine
I understand how you pray daily for things to be fine, I want things happening your daily sobs.
I just want you to keep striving, keep pushing, keep growing, keep being optimistic. Tomorrow definitely will be fine and all of your desires will come true.
You would definitely be happy!September 25, 2019 at 2:52 pm #4252Participant
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Dear Women,</p>
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I want to let you know how important you all are. Single, married or otherwise I see your struggles and they count.
If you were to search best, you will find that some of you are among them, in no way lagging behind and carrying the touches or breaking glass ceilings. This should not surprise you at all.
You might have heard this before and certain obstacles may have brought doubts to your mind but it’s still true; if you don’t give up you too will get there and even go beyond.</p>
Please, don’t forget you worth and make sure no one else does.
One of You.
