A Thought for Today

“We would have a lot less problem in the world if we talked to each other instead of about each other, if we tried to understand and be less quick to criticize.”

Aretha Franklin has died at the age of 76. The queen of soul who has been ill for a while, took a turn for the worst. She was reported days ago to be in hospice care. She passed away today after her long battle with pancreatic cancer. At the time of her passing she was surrounded by family and friends.

She had a great career and her music will continue to live on. Condolences to her family!

 

Is Nakedness the New Norm?

Society has one of the greatest influence on people. Many feel that they need to do things they are sometimes not comfortable with in order to fit it. Social Media perhaps has the greatest impact on how women view themselves and the image they project.

It saddens me to see that so many women equates nakedness with attractiveness. If you feel you have to expose your body in order to feel attractive, it says a lot about how you view youself as an individual and more importantly as a woman.

You are more than just an object, so much more than a sex symbol. Take pride in the way you carry yourself and be cognizant of the fact that there is a difference between looking attractive and looking tacky.

Today’s Positive Quote

Don’t give up on yourself or let doubt prevent you from fulfilling your dream. It is a tough world out there so stand tall, aim high and strive to achieve your goals. Don’t be distracted by your critics. You will always have people who won’t believe in you. The key is to believe in yourself and have confidence in your ability to succeed. Have a Happy Monday and make this a productive week.

Empower Girls and Women

One of the most important step in empowering women is educating girls. It is imperative that they are given the chance to receive a good education. In some countries across the world millions of girls are denied the chance of getting an education. Many are forced into child labor and child marriages where they endure a life of servitude. This impact negatively on the quality of life for the girls involved.

Girls who are denied an education become women who are ill-equipped for the job market. They are denied the chance of equal opportunity in the workplace and are more likely to live a life of poverty.
