When I reflect on the women I admire who have really made a difference in this world, I like to think that before they ministered to the poor, orbited the earth, or won political office…first they put on their lipstick. That small act hearkens back to a simpler time when women showed their determination and focus by putting on their lipsticks and going what needed to be done. In fact I can remember my mother telling me to “put on some lipstick” before doing almost anything else- as if this would magically give me the strength and willpower to tackle any obstacle in my path.
And you know something? Ma was so right. Even now when it’s time to put on my big-girl panties and dive into a new project, adventure, or challenge , I start with a fresh face and a gorgeous shade of lipstick that really makes me feel empowered.
For you, it may not be lipstick. Maybe it’s your favourite shoes or a lucky keepsake. Maybe it’s a yoga pratice or a moment or a moment of meditation. Whatever empowers you, make it part of your day. U se whatever works to get your female energy moving and make sure that you sure start….ROCKING THE WORLD!
