“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

Affirmation: I am more than a woman

When I open my eyes each morning, I realize that I am more than my gender, more than my emotions, and more than my natural ability as nurturer. I am more than a woman.

I believe that my womanhood symbolizes strength. Being a woman makes me able to meet tough challenges head on without fear or doubt.

I am stronger than any label the world tries to pin on me.

I know that my womanhood epitomizes brilliance. I am a creator, definer, and maker of great things. I can envision endless possibilities and turn those possibilities into realities. Nothing I set my brilliant mind on is out of my reach.

I am the carrier of burdens for my family and loved ones. I am the listening ear, the open arms, and the strong shoulder for tears of sadness to roll down onto. I lift them up in their times of despair.

I am a channel through which good things flow.

Today, I celebrate my indefinable status. I am inspired by something greater than the labels that society may want to place on me. The sky is my limit and I use every opportunity to show I am capable of reaching the stars.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. How do I react when I am not accepted by others?
2. Do I teach my children to respect others, regardless of gender or background?
3. How can I transcend the labels that others might put on me because I’m a woman?
