Speaking Up on International Women’s Day: How to Use Your Voice for Good
Women are a vital piece to the puzzle.
Our inhale and exhale breathes fresh, beautiful life into hopeless places. Our dreams carry answers to the world’s complex problems. Our tender kindness eradicates hatred and makes room for love. Our minds hold great mysteries waiting to be uncovered. We are beauty at our core - in the brave acts of faith we display, the kindness in our eyes and the hope in our soul. It isn’t about women competing against men. Nor is it saying that we are more important than men. But it is to say that both man and woman have a place on this earth. Each is vital to its working system.
We are speaking out, standing tall and stepping into our true identity.
Not by putting men down, but by standing alongside them… We are rising tall and boldly using our voices to positively impact the world. We are revealing deep complexities about our stories, insecurities, doubts and fears. We are eradicating the lie that says “You are alone.” Every human being is facing their own battle, yet at the same time, every human being carries the strength to overcome them. YOU carry the strength to overcome what you’re facing.
When we acknowledge our worth and step into our purpose, MAGIC happens.
In honor of national women’s day, a day celebrating women’s achievements throughout history, we held a photoshoot with some amazingly talented, beautiful and powerful women… People who are making a difference in society by using their specific talents and abilities to help the people around them. We LOVE women supporting women. When we use our voice to lift each other up, we all become stronger.
It's time that we use our voices... and use them for good! Here's three ways you can use your voice in order to create positive impact in the world
1| Speak kindly to YOURSELF.
Being a catalyst for positive change in the outside world begins in the inside world. What do I mean by this? Before we can positively impact other people, we have to be grounded in who we are. We have to step into the reality of our identity (like we mentioned previously). We have to relentlessly and continuously let go of the lies attempting to tie us down and step into the truth, the light and the beauty of who we are. We have to speak kindly to ourselves and love ourselves well. From this place, you will be empowered to speak life into others.
2| Own your story, and bravely share it with the world.
A vital component to positively impacting the world is bravely owning your story. Every intricacy, complexity, beautiful moment, failure and victory - they all count.This is easier said than done. It’s a process that occurs over our entire lifetime, but we do get better with practice. After owning your story, empower, encourage, and inspire others by sharing it openly. In the act of being vulnerable, we empower others to overcome their insecurity and step into true identity. How? By showing them that they’re not alone.
3| Cheer other women on: verbally, virtually and any other way you can think of!
Let’s create a culture of empowerment over competition. When we choose to encourage our fellow females, we create a powerful environment where we are all free to live at our highest capacity. This means more impact. This leads to more positivity, light and love eradicating every lie, shameful thought and insecurity. We are so much more powerful, strong and beautiful when we stand together.
