Self awareness and perseverance are key components to lead a successful life.


Woman in me,

Come out of darkness, to find your own sunshine. Oh woman, you are amazing, don’t lose yourself in trying to impress others. You are a heroine, you don’t need to be a hero. You don’t need to do things like a man, do it like a woman. You are as strong, powerful, adamant and determined as anyone else. You have to set bars for yourself, your gender can never define limits of your efforts and hard work, abilities and capabilities. Don’t let people define your strength by calling you the man of the house, be a proud and strong woman of the house! Always fight for your passion and your dreams.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ” — Eleanor Roosevelt.

Live life as it comes, you don’t need to hide these scars or escape behind. Your scars and struggles make you more beautiful. All those hard times have made you a better, smarter and wiser person. Accept them, let them be healed but never forget them. Channelize your emotions, channelize them into strength, focus and determination. It is okay for you to be bossy or aggressive. No one is judging you. Okay yes everyone will judge you.

But remember it is your choice if you want to be called only pretty or you want to be called forceful, fire, wild, gentle, strong, powerful, aggressive intense or vigorous. It is you who will decide what you want to be. Just don’t be pretty because everyone wants you to be. Be what you want to be, strive harder than everyone else to justify your worth to yourself. A beautiful woman isn’t only the one who is pretty but it also means having strength, elegance, sacrifice, love, empathy, confidence, passion, tenacity, patience and determination. You are deep and eternal. Live your woman-hood. Help other women grow. Turn down every one who judges you. Break the stereotypes. Be strong, be happy and be YOU.

When there won’t be anyone to hold your hand and push you forward in life and you will be missing all the encouragement, purpose and motivation in life, just be sure, I am here. You have been always the most beautiful woman for me. I respect your decisions, had always and will always. I appreciate the strength you have and struggles that you have been through. I can see those scars which you hide from the world and embrace close to your heart, trust me, they will heal. When you will feel like you have no more strength left and giving up, remember there is someone to whom you are an epitome of courage, fearlessness and bravery. You are enjoyed by me even when you are wild and at times when you look like the purest, calmest and most serene thing on earth. Your smile is impeccable. Your strength to face all the challenges and even after all these scars, holding your held high and loving life, is remarkable. Woman, you have taught me how to love life, learn from mistakes and let go. Remember the time when you taught me that this is just a phase, it shall pass too. I adore you and admire you. I love you the way no one can. You can count on me till eternity. I deeply and wildly love you. This is me- ‘yourself’. I approve of you, that’s only what matters. Don’t seek approval from outside. Within you is the potential to reach sky. Stay happy because you deserve to. Spread happiness and kindness, that is the purpose. And always always remember, you will never be alone. You will be always loved and respected.

“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” — Ayn Rand
