Empowering Other Women

empower-everyday

Women’s Empowerment starts with how we TREAT other women.

I found this quote after doing some research and reading; “There’s a special place in hell for women that don’t help other women.” – Madeleine Albright

NOW, I PERSONALLY DON’T HAVE SUCH A HARSH STANCE ON WOMEN NOT HELPING WOMEN.

Yes, we have International Women’s DAY in March every year. But, we need to support, empower, support and love each other EVERYDAY!

“The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description.”
– Steve Maraboli

Well, I wanted to share 11 Ways to Empower Other Women

  1. Empower Yourself: The first step to empowering others is to strive to empower yourself. I once read an article with the words, “get what you need so you can help others get what they need”, I agree 1000%.
  2. Value Diversity and Advocate Cultural Understanding: Learning to respect the differences between us; we build understanding of one another.
  3. Accept ALL Women: Regardless of body type, your religion, sexual preference, or even fashion sense, we are all women and we all need to stick together. You are not just empowering the women like you. You should be empowering all women to follow their dreams, no matter what their dreams are.
  4. Start At An Early Age: We have to instill a sense of empowerment in your daughters, nieces, cousins, god daughters, granddaughters, etc. Let them know early on that they can do anything they set their minds to. Having these qualities instilled in our daughters can help us create a new generation of women who will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams.
  5. Speak UP & BE HEARD: This is the number one thing to do out of all of the ways to empower women. If you see a woman who is being mistreated, say something! Don’t let these things just pass by. Every time that a woman is belittled, it impacts each and every one of us. By saying something, you are letting the world know that empowering women is a not something to be taken lightly.
  6. Become a Mentor: We all have heard of organizations like, Big Brothers Big Sisters, where a professional can mentor a young child. Girl Scouts. You can even form your own group. Well, as women, we can also be mentors to other women. Are you a woman who runs a successful business? Why not share with a woman, who is in the start-up phase, your experiences and advice. Are you a well-established blogger? Why not offer to teach a new blogger the ways of social media. Of course, mentor means supporting another for free. So, if you do offer to mentor someone; do not expect anything more than appreciation in return.
  7. Celebrate Women’s Achievements: I cringe when a woman has accomplished something and those around react in one of two ways: 1) speak negative about the woman or 2) ignore it.  An example of is like this: A woman receives an award for something she accomplished and instead of focusing on what she did great, everyone talks about her weight, her lifestyle, her shoes. . . you get the what I’m saying? It is even more shameful when those who are the loudest are other women. We need to learn to celebrate and focus on one another’s achievements without tearing down each other because of personal opinion. Hey, truth told, you do not have to like someone to congratulate them, walk away and say no more.
  8. Compliment Each Other (IT’S OK!): Going along with watching what we say, take the time to compliment those around you. Women feel way more empowered when they have more confidence. That little boost of confidence you get when you receive a compliment might be just what you need to feel more confident. When we raise each other up, we are empowering each other to reach our full potential.
  9. Invest in Women Businesses: Another great thing about supporting women business owners; many are mothers who are the sole providers for their children.
  10. Be SUPPORTIVE: Sometimes, being supportive requires nothing more than being there. Being a shoulder to lean on when a friend is down, listening to your daughter’s problem (though which nail polish to wear is far from a life changing moment), and calling your cousin to see how her new job is going.
  11. Spread Encouragement: Something as easy as a friendly smile. Actually, it is more like a verbal smile. When you meet a woman, who for example is a police officer, firefighter or military personnel, why not tell her you appreciate the work she does. Or as a business owner tell an employee what a good job she is doing — or even another business owner.

“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.”
― Coco Chanel

New Season, New Changes, New Opportunities!

image

Autumn is upon us and for most of the world you will notice small changes happening around us.
Well, being from South Florida you won’t really see those changes. But, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a newness upon us.

I say that to say… when you are on your life journey or you are working towards a goal; DON’T GIVE UP because you don’t see any changes. You just have to stay the course.
During my #GetFit Life Journey, I have encountered many road blocks and temptations along the way. But, this is something that I have to and want to do and I refuse to LOSE!

So what are you going to do in your HARVEST TIME?

Remember, NEW SEASON, NEW OPPORTUNITIES! ! !

What’s On Your Plate? #GetFit

Whats-on-your-plate

Often times we don’t take notice to what we are putting in our bodies. Since, starting my #GetFit Life Journey I try to take pictures of every meal that I eat throughout the day.

People say; “OMG! Why?” For TWO REASONS on why I do what I do. Because #1. I want to remember the moment; especially if it was amazing food. #2. So that I can hold myself accountable for what’s on my plate. We have to hold ourselves, for something as important as living a healthier lifestyle.

If I didn’t do so well, I could always go back to my pictures and see exactly what I did incorrectly and make any necessary changes that would make a difference for the next time I got on the scale (don’t be afraid of the scale, I’ll talk about that in another post soon).

There are many things that we like and want to eat, but NOT necessary what we should eat. On that special day, when you want a taste of soda or that piece of cake. 🙂

So, here are a few things that I consume (we) should try to consume more of in our daily menu and eating habits. Things such as (be sure to try something new ONCE A WEEK):

FRUIT: ALL kinds, just be sure to eat in moderation because fruits have natural sugar… some more than others.

VEGGIES:  green leafs (Spinach, Collard Greens (NO PORK), kale, broccoli, squash, carrots, and many other veggie options out there to try AT LEAST ONCE!

GRAINS: Brown Rice, Quinoa, Wheat Pasta, Veggie Pasta, wheat Bread, Sandwich Thins, Wraps and many more options in all grocery stores.

BEVERAGES: WATER, WATER, WATER, Green Tea (hot or cold), Crystal Light, Tonic Water (regular or with flavor) and all of these options are very REFRESHING and low in fat and calories.

NOW, it’s your turn! What’s in YOUR PLATE and what does it look like?

which one is your plate?

We have to start thinking of better food options. I am not saying that MY #GetFit Journey has been easy! Oh hell NO! But, because this is something that I know want and I am sick and I tired– I’m going to get it done! So JOIN ME!

I hope that I can and will inspire just one person and my hard work will have been all worth the sweat and tears.

A few yummy bites from last week and this week so far, were things like: Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken, Oatmeal, Watermelon, Hot Tea, Curry Chicken, Broccoli, Chicken Tacos, Chicken or Turkey Wraps, Veggie burger w/ turkey bacon and the works and Guacamole and Chips (I always have a FUN, FILLING AND EXCITING MENU).

Motivational #QOD

Fitness is a lifelong journey. Set goals and chase them down. When you reach one goal, set another one and pursue it just as furiously. Don’t get frustrated when it gets tough. Even if you’re moving slowly that’s better than not moving at all. Just focus on being better today than you were yesterday.

My #GetFit Journey Continues

Hello Dolls & Gents!!!

As, I continue my #GetFit journey… I try to mix up things and not get bored. Since, I am easily bored I try to do something new everyday.

So, I have been walking and I am making great strides to increase my distance and keep up a steady pace. So, in an effort to shake things up… I ordered a jump rope two weeks ago and I broke it out yesterday. IT WAS HILARIOUS! And, considering that I have jumped rope since God knows how long. LOL 🙂

Well, with my Mom behind the camera and my determination — I just went for it. I will be getting back on the rope later this week. Just have to be easy on your joints when doing rigorous exercises.

Well, here’s a little clip of me in action on yesterday!!!

Watch ME Jump Rope 🙂
