The fact that I chose to have a career in my life to sustain me and make me happy instead of a husband does ruffle some feathers in society but it also puts me in control of my life.
Asserting that I can legit do anything a man can, and practising it daily with no qualms makes me feel empowered. Nobody said life was going to be easy, but if you know what you want in life and don’t let anything deter you from it, life can take you to spectacular places.
Empowerment is a moment to moment journey that rests on each decision we make. If we as women can make more decisions from a place of inner strength, we can create a better life, and ultimately, contribute to more empowered gender.
