We are sisters
From the beginning of time women have been the nurturers, providers of emotional comfort, and the centre of foundation in our society. As women, we have always known how to take care of our families and provide a level of unprecedented support among all people. Even back in the various past histories that have occurred over time, we as women have not had an easy go at being accepted as an authority in life. We have also had to struggle within our vast communities in relationships, the workplace, or just in general when it comes to being heard and our opinion being taken seriously.
When you look at the timeline of some awesome and wonderful women in history from Pandita Ramabai (1858-1922) who was a spectacular social reformer and activist to Corazon Aquino (1933-2009) who was the first woman who served as the 11th president of the Philippines to Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) who was the longest serving first lady in America and also whose works in the human rights field is highly acclaimed. We as women are strong, beautiful, intelligent, loyal, loving and we are sisters and we are in this existence together to hold each other up in integrity, love ,and hope.
We are loyal to humanity, to our families, to our friends, to our careers and to each other, which is why women should be kind to one another and allow our bond to take its true natural form into - sisterhood. Let's all take a look back when we as people stuck together in great times and in desolate times. Today in our modern technology world that we live in, there is a great lack of compassion towards our fellow neighbours. Our strength as women is needed in this world. Whether you are a homemaker, business executive, or student, the dynamic of women being drawn into and maintaining a sisterhood is imperative and important in this day and time.
We all matter and make an impact on the world as a whole so why then be indifferent towards each other? I see too many times in the media, all of these beautiful and intelligent women tearing each other down piece by piece and heart by heart. Why does this happen? What happened to humanity and love for each other? Yes, our World has grown in so many glorious ways and this great feat is such a spectacular concept and feeling. Yes there are lots of competition out there as far as career, life, partners and basically anything you can think of. I have even seen women compete viciously with each other over makeup and clothing. Why send negative vibes towards each other for selfish and shallow reasons? It is time to unify and come together now.
What I am so thankful for in my life is what has been shown to me universally and that is the real power of family. Have you ever heard of the saying,” Blood is thicker than water"? In a literal sense I am sure that blood IS thicker than water but I never like to use that analogy because the meaning of water in that particular statement means something that is not sturdy and is easily dissolved. Sisterhood is family. I have had the blessing of meeting some of the most genuine, awe-inspiring, remarkable women you could ever meet on this Earth. They have quickly become staples of foundation in my life and I consider them as sisters. I honestly do not see a difference between a blood relative and these amazing individuals I have met over the course of my life.
I truly believe within the very core of my being that even if we are not related we are interconnected in this world to be there for one another and support each other through life. Think about the people in your life and the sisterhood association you have with them. Isn't it special? We as women understand each other on a deeper level through the hurt, pain, joys, and triumphs of life. We are sisters, we are love, and we are the hope for tomorrow.
