KNOW YOUR POWER

There are some words that send shockwaves through people and when a woman says she is powerful, many run away…
Why?
When I tell my young ladies to know their own power, I am in no way saying…
You don’t need a man, or you can’t have a man…
Because those among us who love what man brings to the table know…
What we want, need and can have…
What I am saying is know your own power
By caring for and loving yourself….
Saying no and meaning no when no is the only answer that works…
I also promote educating oneself as power…
Power to make choices and to provide for your own needs…
Having someone take care of you is a beautiful thing…
Being able to care for yourself is a necessity…
I was raised by a legion of women…
Who were mighty powerful…
They all worked…
They raised responsible, smart, children…
And honey they had men, I mean men’s men in their lives…
Who loved and revered them…
Because they knew that these women weren’t trying to prove anything
To anyone, they were just about their business…
And the business of their loved ones…
But they had to honor them, because they
Knew that these women didn’t run around rolling their necks saying,
“I can do bad all by myself.”
These women were saying,
“I love you, want you, need you and sure would love for you to stay, but if you go,
I can do GOOD all by myself.”
Now that my sisters is knowing your power.

Gwyneth...that's a great idea...Angelia...compile them in a book...by the time you come to the showcase next year you should have 365 of them...in a book that we will be selling and you will be autographing because in case you didn't know you're one of the authors I will be contacting to appear on one of the panels. And I haven't forgotten about the banner or the publicity...got a little sidetracked here but I'll be back on board in a few...gurl you know a sista knows how to milk a b-day...hehe.

Must be something in the air, Sistah Angelia. There's a post on this topic at Brother Rich's House (maybe a bit graphically stated, but you're all grown;-) AND over at ManChild's place. I'm LOVING it!

As I'm learning to understand & appreciate my power...I am LOVING every bit of this!
