Women Do: Statements of Purpose
These statements of purpose are what the Women Do blog and social media pages believe to be true about each and every one of us. No matter how many pieces you have read before I hope you will read this one, and know that all of these apply to you. There will always be work to do but let's start here!
You are powerful.
Right now. In this moment. You do not have to become anything more, you already are enough.
You are strong.
When you feel weak do not forget how many times you have risen from the ashes.
You are resilient.
You have climbed life’s mountains, you have been knocked down, and yet here you are, still fighting.
You are powerful in your truth. Your ability to be vulnerable, be honest, and connect with people will be one of the most powerful tools you have.
You are worthy.
You have always been. You will always be.
You are important.
You are irreplaceable in this world and to those you touch on a daily basis, do not forget it.
You are loved.
You do not have to earn it, the truest love is the one that comes with no strings attached. You are loved just as you are, in this world and beyond.
Your voice is vital.
You are the only you. You were created with a unique voice that no one else has. Use it. Share it.
Your actions are your calling card.
Words without action mean nothing. “People may not remember what you said but they will remember how you made them feel.”
You are worthy of grace.
We all stumble, we all falter, and we all fail. You are worthy of grace, no matter what.
You are worthy of forgiveness.
Offer and receive forgiveness. Give yourself a break. Let go of what others’ have done. Live free of the burden.
You are beautiful.
There is no comparison that ever needs to be made, no number that ever has to be met, you are exactly as you should be.
You deserve happiness.
No matter your past, no matter your battles or your daily struggles. You deserve a life of true happiness.
You were meant for more.
That pull inside of you that beckons you to go after your dreams and live boldly. Go chase it.
You have to believe in yourself.
There will be difficult days, there will be failures, and there will be times that it will all be too overwhelming, but if you can believe in yourself and your abilities than nothing will ever be able to stop you.
You have to say fuck it sometimes.
At the end of the day you have to let go of the stuff that doesn’t matter, chase dreams, love those who treat you right, let go of those who don’t, be grateful, be joyful, be bold, be assertive, and do not take shit from anyone. Then take a deep breath and step in to your path.
