Happy Sunday. Today I’m “forgetting about boy addiction” to discuss a topic I promised my good friend battling stage 4 cancer I would write about in her honor. “Female Courage”. As I grow older and become more comfortable with myself I see that the amazing women in my life are very brave.
For example, the friend I mention above made the brave decision to fight her illness a year ago to be there for her family. Over this journey she taught me that life and love are worth fighting for. Throughout her entire ordeal I never saw her lose strength or give up. She has been so positive and deliberate in every move she has made to live an amazing life as long as she can. She did this from a place of pure love and courage for her children and her incredible family, smiling through her entire battle. She gives me comfort to not grieve too long for her. She knows her journey. I recently promised her I’d write about her courage and decided today is the day. This one is for her.
I know so many brave women. Women who are good, beautiful, kind and strong who are in hard relationships where they do not get the respect they so deserve. Yet they go on, holding their heads high, giving amazing love to their children, smiling, never showing the sadness that could potentially take them over.
I admire this so. It has taken me a long time to learn to do this for myself. I never want to ever again let negativity bring me down. Life is a choice: fight and be brave and give love, or give up and lose out on all the great things life has to offer! I have learned to be brave from those courageous women who teach me every day.
This one is for you POWERCHICKS! And to honor my friend who is fighting the good fight, I wish you NOTHING but joy and peace and God’s open arms as he is holding you always. Whether your soul blesses us through your body on earth or through your soul in heaven your inspiration forever lives on with me. Thank you teacher.
Thank you for reading.
