So I was originally going to write about something else..you know something a little more colorful, but I spent the majority of my night awake… full of anxiety… I don’t think that the anxiety was anything too much involved with my life, but with those around me.
The news. It seems as though the only thing that is reported as of lately is that of death, destruction or shear madness. Whatever you need to define those terms, please, by all means interpret as you wish.
Me personally, well, I cannot help but stop thinking about those women that have been hidden and tortured from all of humanity for over 10 years!……………………10 YEARS!
My stomach churns and my back aches from the anguish that these women had to endure. I won’t go in to detail about much of the abuse as I am sure you have heard enough from the media, but my question is, WHY?! FOR GODSAKE, WHY?! I am taking this opportunity NOW. To speak out to all of Y O U. Both Male and Female. Let’s respect each other. It sounds so simple, it sounds as though bunny rabbits and squirrels could get along, guess what…they can. You can do it, make it happen. It starts now, It starts with you. All it takes is a smile, a friendly ‘hello’, a hug, a simple word of encouragement.
I will point this out there right now. I am sick and tired of seeing women getting taken advantage of. Sick of it. Women, yes, tend to be more passionate and emotional, I will not doubt this, BUT this does not mean someone can abuse. It almost brings tears to my eyes for these women out there… I have faith in you that you are so strong, that you will fight these wounds and you will prevail.
Women are strong. We are in many cases survivors. We can endure harsh battles, pain, run fortune 500s, give life, multi-task, creative, love… amongst many other qualities. Our diversity will NOT be victimized any longer.
Thank you for taking the time to listen (read) my banter. I would like to challenge you. Start today, right now in fact. Do at least ONE thing to make someone’s day special…
And I promise, tomorrow… I will have something a little more flavorful to write about : )
xoxo smiles always xoxo
