I’m a woman, what’s your superpower? (8.29.19)

Sometimes I feel like I’ve waited forever,ย Patricia Bokowski, just to be you. The Universe

I’m a woman, what’s your superpower?

I believe that’s how most women feel these days!

We have to be, we do EVERYTHING๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And, we are responsible for EVERYONE๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Including their HAPPINESS๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

It’s exhausting being a woman these days.

Extra difficult if you are a business woman/entrepreneur/businessowner/trying to better yourself/etc/etc.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

On a daily basis, I speak with a lot of women, and every one of them seems to feel this way!

Today, I honor all the hard-working women, including myself.๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

We don’t get enough accolades as to how amazing we are๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š

As such, this blog goes out to all the hard-working #bossbabes ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

There are literally so many people I could crush right now๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

People who have done me wrong๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Like, so wrong!

Only I have learned to wait.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

Wait, until the time is right to do something about it.

Until it is time to tell MY story๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

In the meantime, I just sit back and smile.

YES, you will!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

That’s not for you to worry about!

Do it anyway๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Because the minute you start doing what’s right for YOU, and not for them, you will starting living your truth!

And a lot of people won’t like it.

Their problem, not yours๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

EXACTLYโœ”โœ”โœ”

When people say you can’t do it, it means they don’t see HOW it can be done?

Only, they aren’t YOU๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

You are smart!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And has resources!

Knows how to GOOGLE stuff๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Is a resource herself๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

Has the ability to find the people to help her solve her problems๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

YOU are THAT girl๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

BE THAT GIRL๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

There is a clip on Pinterest, with Tyler Perry in character as Medea, and he’s giving advice to a young man who just had his heart broken, and this is what she says (and I’m paraphrasing):

“Go home, have a good cry if you want. And then pick yourself up and move on.

If you have done everything you can to make someone happy, and they want to leave, LET THEM LEAVE!”

Seems like sound advice.โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

I love that๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

There is a difference between being cocky and being confident!

Confidence doesn’t make others feel bad about themselves.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

It took me a long time to feel that kind of confidence, and let me tell you, once you have attained that kind of confidence, you have truly leveled upโ˜โ˜โ˜

YOU SO ARE!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

So please don’t.โ˜นโ˜นโ˜น

And remember, you are SO worthy of everything!๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

By the way, if there is someone in your circle, be it family/lover/friend/etc. who doesn’t make you feel that way, it’s time to say bye-bye๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–

Don’t let anyone disrespect you, including yourself๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

I love that <3

LOVE may come and go!

Your career will always be there for you!https://www.ninefrogs.com/motivation-monday-9-23-19/

Thank you Lady Gaga๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

True that!

Sometimes we think everyone is going to be so happy for us, only to find out they’re not.

As a result, I have found it best in my life to keep some good news either to myself, or just my inner circle.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

The harsh reality is not everyone is going to be genuinely happy for you.

What can you do?๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Be HAPPY for YOU๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

It has taken me a long time to finally get that placeโ˜โ˜โ˜

And I can tell you, it is absolutely freeing just not caring what others think about you!

The thing is, people are going to talk about you no matter what if that is their intention.

So let them talk.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

You’re too busy working on your dreams to care what anyone thinks of you!

So yeah, be that womanโ˜โ˜โ˜

I’ve recently had some life events which have caused me to be that girlโ˜โ˜โ˜โ˜โ˜

And I’ll be honest with you, I was afraid๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

Like, really afraid!

But, I did it anyway.๐Ÿฆพ๐Ÿฆพ๐Ÿฆพ

Ever since, not so afraid of much now ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s the thing about over-coming your fears!!!

Sometimes you just have to bite-the-bullet and just do itโœ”โœ”โœ”

BE girl who is willing to fight for what she deserves.๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š

God, how true is that?

Every woman I know over 40๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

So sick of EVERYONE’S shiz.

Said every woman everywhereโคโคโค

We’ve all been there!

I call this ‘nice women’s syndrome’.

Where we don’t want to offend anyone, or cause a scene, or make trouble for anyone else.https://www.ninefrogs.com/life-hacks-for-easy-living-7-23-19/

So we eat it, so to speak.๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–

Until the war inside us is too much to bear.๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Therefore, we have to decide, the war inside us vs. the war against us.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

And I hope if you find yourself in this place, I sincerely hope that you choose to go to war!!! ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

True enough!

If people wanted you to write “nice” things about them, they should have treated you better๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

So don’t ever hold back on speaking YOUR truth๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

“Be that girl who roots for the other girl, tells a stranger her hair looks amazing, and encourages other women to believe in themselves and their dreams!”

I heard this amazing quote the other day, by a woman named Leonie Dawson. She is a super-successful entrepreneur (Google her). I have been a fan of hers for about ten years now, and recently took one of her on-line courses.

Here’s the quote: “Lord, grant me the confidence of a mediocre middle-aged white man.”

Stop taking other people’s crapโ˜โ˜โ˜

Talk soon,

Patricia <3 always
