Fight Like a Girl
Fight like a Girl. Yes, I said it. Fight like a girl. You are a badass woman. Women know how to fight. They know how to survive. They know how to struggle and win. The phrases, "You fight like a girl." or "run like a girl" or "throw like a girl" are used to keep women down, but I say stand up and own it proud. Women are achieving more now than ever. We are rising up in companies, we are juggling family and work, we are becoming entrepreneurs. We are stepping into our own power AND it is about time!
The world need us. The world needs YOU! It needs your voice. It needs your strength, It needs your empathy, your nurturance and your resolve to make things better. We don't have to learn to do it like a man to be strong, powerful, brave or legendary. We don't need to fight, lead or challenge like men to get ahead. We need to own our own unique style, voice and way of doing things, like a woman does.
We need both masculine energy and feminine energy in the world for things to stay in balance; otherwise we are too much of one or the other and chaos ensues. Just look around you. The world has largely been run by masculine energy, but it is time for a shift. Time for a celebration of feminine energy and what that has to offer the world.
It is time for women to rise and come together. When women fight each other instead of injustice, instead of the negative voices in our heads that say we can't or we aren't good enough, we keep ourselves and each other down. It is time to be a community and to raise one another up. That is how we get ahead, but it is also how the world around us gets ahead. It is how the feminine voice, spirit, and fight is heard.
Remember, a rising tide lifts all boats.
How will you fight today? How will you lift up one another? How will you rise?
