Carving out time to make these things happen will of course require sacrifice. But hey, we're already great at sacrificing these days. We're professionals. And we shouldn't have to sacrifice ourselves any longer.
It's time to shift to a new space of women cheering on other women as well. No comparisons. If you focus on the fact that your friend has a better butt than you or is better than you in a certain way, what a waste
To entrepreneurs, spaghetti throwing is a way of life. As women-owned businesses are currently thriving, we women seem to be grabbing a few handfuls of that starchy delicacy more readily than ever before.
Perhaps, instead of asking yourself if 2015 will be the year you start a small business, ask yourself if 2015 will finally be the year you start listening to and respecting your own voice. Perhaps 2015 will be the year you'll commit to making yourself happy.
I did promise that this was not going to be a diatribe about cigarettes -- so let's just agree that it is my metaphor for the self-care sidesteps we take in our lives. Insert your own behavior or pattern -- the thing that distracts you and occupies space in your life.
My decision to quit law was more about running away from a job and lifestyle I didn't like and less about running towards a business and lifestyle that would serve me. Looking back, some statements needed some tweaking.
Making snide comments about skinny women is no different than bullying a woman into believing she's too fat to be attractive. I know we like to support the underdog, but the underdog becomes relative to who's being bullied. This is why I find the term "reverse bullying" redundant.

As young women begin college with anticipation and enthusiasm, these are a few of the roadblocks that too often sabotage the empowered and joyful experience they so deserve in this new chapter in their lives.
My job is simple: to take charge and be myself. The journey is to come back into harmony with myself, with patience and kindness. It doesn't matter what went on before, what matters now is allowing my heart to take charge and lead. The only expert that's required is the one within.
If you practice telling yourself the truth on a regular basis and in everyday interactions, it will strengthen your better self, and it will become easier to make conscious choices that feed the relationship, even when things get out of hand.
Through being vulnerable we can show others our wounds, we can show them that we all have the same ones. I want you to see that there is always hope, that there is always light around us and that we are ultimately much more resilient than we could ever imagined.
