Thursday Thoughts: Black women you have no excuses!

freedmens-bureau-1134169_1280I love my people and I know sexism, racism and misogyny are real, but these evils are NO excuses for you to just give up on your hopes and dreams. Not a single one.

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals.” Michelle Obama, Attorney and First Lady of the United States

The truth is we use these things as a crutch is because we’re scared. Scared of being in control of our life. Scared of change. Scared of actually succeeding and scared of defying every single lie we’ve internalized about ourselves. Stop it! Stop being scared! Let your haters be your motivators. Let every single -ism and bigotry become the reasons why you must succeed.

“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” Maya Angelo, Author, Director and Renaissance Woman

Take back your crown, wear it proudly and slay some dragons. Too many of our grandmothers and mothers have given up so much so that you can thrive. I want you to know that you can do this. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams and own your destiny.

    I see a lot of women do this or try to convince others that racism or sexism will prevent them from reaching their goals.
