Women: We Can Be Our Own Worst Enemy

What would we all do without Face Book, Twitter or all the other means of posting our deepest thoughts and craziest moments?  Running through my own feed today it came to my attention just how many postings are directed at women.  Not all of them deliver a message worth reading, imagine that.  Today my favorite was one telling the reader the "the most dangerous animal" in the world was a silent woman sitting with a smile on her face. This tidbit was supplied to the reader through a radio station's post.  Thank you Alice 105.9 Denver, CO for your insightful understanding of the female psychological state.

This is the United States and we still have the freedom of speech so they may post all they want.  Today's blog is the response given to these postings by women.  After going through other postings it stands out that many of my own gender (female if you don't know me), join in and promote the degradation of our gender. Ladies we are at times our own worst critic.  We talk about each other and put each other down. We stand with the "popular" afraid of not being accepted.  We build walls of protection from fear of being vulnerable. We are so busy worrying about what someone else is thinking about us we don't live the life we are meant to live.

Today I encourage each of you to think about your own life:
  • What are the messages I send to others about myself and women as a whole?
  • Do I give respect to myself and others?
  • Do I stand silent when my voice needs to be heard?
  • Am I part of my own belittlement?
  • Do I hide in the shadow so I won't be seen because it feels safer?
Affirmation for today: I open my eyes to the world and seek enlightenment of my soul. I believe in myself and encourage others to do the same. ~Namaste~
