A habit of mine is to write a quote for each week in my agenda. I do all of this when I first purchase my new agenda, so it adds an element of serendipity when the weekly quote speaks to my current circumstances. I would like to share these quotes with you; perhaps they may speak to whatever challenges you face at the present.
My 2017-2018 agenda began in August. I decided to choose quotes for the first few months that addressed themes of women, empowerment, and success. Before sharing this week’s bit of wisdom, I’ll insert some previous quotes:
“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” – Audre Lorde
“A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman.” – Melinda Gates
“Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female.'” – Erin McKean
“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” – Madeleine Albright
As a woman entering a predominately male industry, it’s important for me to maintain a steady source of self-empowerment. Even if you don’t face these barriers-to-entry, it’s equally important to remember your worth, your abilities, and your dreams. Seeing an empowering quote at the top of my agenda every week is a daily reminder of what I want in life.
This week’s quote is relevant to anyone who is encountering a roadblock, dealing with a difficult person, or facing a setback.
Take a sip of that coffee or tea and walk into whatever this week decides to throw at you with your head held high and your mind at peace.
