As a young woman, I believe it’s important to take heed to the wisdom that the women of generations before us are willing to share. The truth is, there is nothing new under the sun, and therefore the things that we face, others have probably already dealt with. The platform and vehicle that gets us there may be different, but the issues are the same.
I spend a lot of time reading, and one of my favorite writers is Dr. Maya Angelou. She’s what I like to call a “straight talk no chaser” kind of woman, who’s lived long enough to be comfortable in always speaking her truth. This morning’s motivation comes in the form of a quote from Dr. Angelou; an encouraging message for those times when you’re losing…or you’ve already lost. Check it:
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
Hope those words help you on this lovely Wednesday. Make this day great!
