“There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments.” ~ Chris Rock
More Us is dedicated to women only (but I am sure men will read as well as they are always curious to know more about Us).
More of Us Women. Empowering each other. Supporting each other. Being there for each other. How many compliments have you given today to other women? How many times have you felt genuinely happy because another woman is succeeding? How many times have you caught yourself unconsciously judging another woman because she is different than you?
I know there are so many of us who support, empower, but mostly don’t judge other women, yet there are many more who do not!
Each one of us has a beautiful energy to give out to this world, nevertheless facing tremendous challenges to be able to show this world what we are capable of. We don’t realize how we crave for the support of our mothers, sisters, daughters, female friends, female colleagues, female bosses and female leaders.
The success of one of us should be the success of all. The achievement of one of us should be the driver for others to do More. The courage of one of us should be the door opener for many. I am sometimes puzzled by the reaction of many who feel threatened by the success, beauty, achievement, resilience, innovation, strength, and even the existence of women who are not themselves!
Men have been better historically in sticking together in good and bad and tapping each others shoulders when needed, despite their natural competitive characteristics. If you want to go to university, and instead of envying your female friend who did, how about being genuinely happy for her and ask her to help you by giving you tips so you can study more effectively next time? If you want to open a new business and instead of trashing that female competitor of yours, how about you do your own homework, work hard and learn a success lesson or two from her? If you want to get married and your female neighbour got engaged before you, how about you genuinely wish her the best and concentrate on yourself and your own happiness rather envying others potential happiness? There are so many examples that we are guilty of, and we really need to stop, think and change.
It is not acceptable anymore with all other obstacles and barriers we have around us to have ones that are hand made by Us.
Can I ask Us a favor? Can We please forget jealousy, forget competitiveness, forget misconceptions, forget differences and forget misjudgments, and UNITE together as One? Can We support each other as We are stronger together? Go please and make it your daily habit to give a compliment to that woman in the elevator with a great manicure. Walk please in the street and tell that mom who is on her way dropping her kids to school that she is a super person managing all. Send please that thank you card to your female colleague. Tell please your female friend how proud you are of her. Be please kinder to that new female boss you have and embrace her good qualities. Open please your heart to that female who is different than you.
Lastly, but most importantly please look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself: ” Omg… I love your soul!” and mean it 100%.
