Woman: which one are you? 

So today, I’m sharing a quote that came to me whilst I was writing this post. I’ve been seeing the behavior of some women outchea together with doing some self reflection and that got me 💭. So here it goes…

If you know me, you’d know that I am all about empowering people, women especially. I believe us women are Devine species, we have power. We birth nations. We subtle yet fierce. We are plan makers. We’re strong, both emotionally and physically. We endure with a smile and well the list of how awesome I think we are can go on for days.


We often are quick to call out men and deem them trash, some of whom rightly deserve such tags. But let me tell you about the two kinds of women on this earth because honestly, some of us are beneath trash!

You get the woman who knows her power, she knows that she can do what men can do, but chooses not to because she knows that her Devine purpose was not to be like men. She knows that her devine purpose is to be something more powerful; support, companionship, compassion, fierce, teachers of the home, of the nation!

What she does, she knows that nobody, not even men can do. She knows that men have a purpose and so do women and so she’s only concerned with being the best she can be in fulfilling that purpose. (I aspire to be just like this)

Then you get the woman who THINKS she knows her power and Inturn misuses it. The one who judges and looks down upon her fellow sisters, the one who is more consumed with being in competition for worldly things than actually getting her eish in order. The one who is arrogant and feels like the world owes her. The one who will encourage ruthless behavior just to prove a point to validate herself. ( I’m guilty of some of these things, I never encourage ruthless behavior and I don’t compete though!) 

Women can destroy, as easily as they can build nations.

We will never be equal to men because then we’d need to be compared to them and really! There’s no comparison.
Men were put on this earth to carry out their own set of purposes; head their homes, provide for their families,  Protect their loved ones, Persue their person of honour etc. It really wouldn’t be fair to compare! 

If we can just go back to the basics (of understanding men and women were put on this earth for different purposes) for a second, lots of things can be changed. It’s effects can be powerful. 

If we can raise women who know their power as opposed to thinking they know their power or misusing it, things like affairs, divorces, broken homes etc. will minimize. If we go back to being okay with what our sole purpose is, and force men into fulfilling what they’ve been put on this earth to do (by not settling for less) we would not have the repercussions of kids acting out coz their fathers are nowhere to be seen. Abuse to women and children will minimize and the world will just be a more respectful place to live in.  Utopian you may say? I say say it starts with you and I. 

Imagine, all this lies in the power of a woman and the choice of how she will use her God-given power. 

And no honey, God will never send you somebody else’s husband. Having an affair should not give your airs and graces about yourself. You should not feel like you’ve “won” because men aren’t prizes, and your fellow women are not your enemies. Also, gaining anything in this world on anything but merit should not make you feel proud. 

Always think, if what you do to others were to be done unto you, how would you feel. If it’s not good, you know what to do.

#QOTD #25

Living in a world that is becoming superficial by the minute, a world where people compete for trivial things like status, likes, followers, new cars or weeve…it really can become very easy to just flow with the current and conform.

I however, always encourage against it; competing with others on a whole. For me, it doesn’t make any sense because no two people fight the exact same struggle, at the exact same time and therefore it just doesn’t make logical sense to compete with anybody.

I think what’s more scary though, is the extent people will go to be better than the next person and usually “better” is defined by material things for these kinds of people; car, phone, job, clothes, home etc. You find people will put themselves in absurd predicaments just to prove they’re better or #winning? Lol, nah! not for me hey.

Whilst I try my best not to judge, I make it my duty to encourage many folk against conformity. This is why this quote is my #1 for today. It goes:

It’s not about being the best, It’s about being better than YOU were yesterday.

Success

Short and sweet, but to the point.

So you have a competing nature? That’s OK, just channel it to compete in a healthy way and that is with yourself. Push your personal boundaries #levels. Whether it is exercise, studies, finances or health, or even small things like controlling your anger, tongue or rants; anything that you want to be better at for you and not because Shiela from next door has it or is doing it.

In order to be the best at anything, you need to be the best version of yourself. Lets focus on that 🙂 Shall we?

Share some of the things you want to be better at or simply share this post to encourage others against conformity or competing on a superficial level.
