In May of 2014 I had started a drive which I dubbed “Dare to be Woman”. A drive that I wanted to take on in order to empower and inspire women to being the best version of themselves. I felt at the time that there had been so much going on and providing an avenue of strength for women seemed so fitting.
Back then I had taken a break from the dare because circumstances made it difficult for me to push it the way I wanted to. But those circumstances have changed and today I feel obliged to rekindle that fire and to be that voice to women who may be in need of a voice. It hurts my heart to hear of the recent incidents of violence against women and like I mentioned in my special feature on Domestic Violence, the onus is on all of us to create awareness on this issue.
So today I dare you…
I dare you to:
Stand up for your rights;
Stand Up against discrimination;
Stand Up against poverty;
Stand Up against degrading and denigrating comments.
Embrace the real you;
Embrace your true Power;
Embrace your Strength;
Embrace your abilities.
Accept who you are:
Accept the Challenges that you face;
Accept that there is a greater Power;
Accept that things are not always as we want them to be.
Commit to Change;
Commit to Grow;
Commit to be Better;
Commit to Striving for the Best.
Go Out and Be You;
Go Out and make a Difference;
Go Out and be a Blessing to Another;
Go Out and find your True Calling.
Declare that you are Blessed and Highly Favoured;
Declare that you can do all things thought Christ who Strengthens you;
Declare that it is well with your Soul;
Declare that a new beginning is in sight for you;
Declare that you will Succeed.
So Stand Up, Embrace, Accept, Commit, Go Out and Declare –
That you are Strong;
That you are Invincible;
That you are WOMAN…
It was Brigham Young who said – “You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
