Be a Queen

After a couple of weeks of absence, I AM BACK!queen

I spent some time with my family and everything is OK now. Thanks for your patience. During this time, I was doing some great reading and I would like to share with you this story that I simply loved!

Be a Queen

Referring to a theme used by Marianne Williamson in her book A Woman’s Worth, Oprah Winfrey said the following in a commencement address to the graduates of all-female Spelman College in 1993:

Be a queen. Dare to be different. Be a pioneer. Be a leader. Be the kind of woman who in the face of adversity will continue to embrace life and walk fearlessly toward the challenge. Take it on! Be a truth seeker and rule your domain, whatever it is –your home, your office, your family- with a loving heart.

Be a queen. Be tender. Continue to give birth to new ideas and rejoice in your womanhood… My prayer is that we will stop wasting time being mundane and mediocre… We are daughter of God –here to teach the world how to love…

It does not matter what you’ve been through, where you come from, who your parents are –nor   your social or economic status. None of that matters. What matters is how you choose to love, how you choose to express that love through our work, through you family, through what you have to five to the world…

Be a queen. Own your power and your glory!

-Oprah Winfrey
