The idea that women are constantly competing against one another has long been forgotten and now we understand that there's room at the table for every one of us.
Often times people ask me, "If you could go back and redo one thing in life, what would it be?" My response is generally, "I would have focused heavily on achieving my personal goals BEFORE getting married."
Anytime a woman shares anything other than her strength, she is demoralized for it. It is not uncommon for society to cheer on a strong, educated Black woman who is doing her thing. However, as soon as sis shows emotion, it's a certified wrap.
"Unless you're marrying someone who never plans to level up from the position they're in when you unite with them, it's not realistic to think you'll never have to play this role for another being.
"...while God is preparing you for motherhood, walk in those other purposes so that they're established..."
Why is it necessary to pray about everything? I've often wondered the same thing. Some things should just be left to work themselves out, right? For much of this year, I've taken that risk. Just hoping things work out. But God isn't just going to insert Himself into all of our situations. Sometimes, He only comes when called, because it is necessary for us to learn to lean on Him. Not the other way around.
