You Are Woman
“So many women spend their lives playing small. I call it ungodly contentment. We find a safe little corner in the world and spend our days maintaining a comfortable nest. Though, of course, such work can be a holy endeavor, it can also be an escape, an unholy refusal to live the life of transformation and faith God is calling us to live. Our penchant for playing small can sabotage our growth and our calling to shine.” – Janet Davis, My Own Worst Enemy
Are you shining? I hope you are. I get great pleasure from single women who are overcoming the odds and becoming a confident and competent woman. In my youth Helen Reddy sang this song, “I Am Woman Hear Me Roar,” and as I recall it was one of the first songs that inspired women to be all they could be.
You can bend but never break me
‘Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul.
I dearly love inspiring women. I’d be delighted to inspire you. You have a dream inside you, I know it. You just need a cheerleader. Set your goals. Make a plan. And ROAR!
