Dear ladies, we have tremendous power in ourselves to make a great change in this world, but before that why not make a change in our day-to-day lives so that the change we ought to bring in this world comes out even greater. 😉
Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens. – Phylicia Rashad
Take care of your health. Spend time and money on maintaining yourself.
Learn to be independent. It’s perfectly okay to not earn, but it’s important to be independent.
Learn to ride that bike or drive that car, you don’t always need an escort.
Create a support system. It’s okay to get on well with in-laws. Not every family needs to have a saas-bahu drama.
Learn about investments and taxes. It’s not necessary to have someone else manage your savings and earnings all your life.
Plan and save for your own gifts and desires. You don’t always need a boyfriend or husband or your dad to buy you something you love. Gift yourself!
Take equal responsibility of your parents. It’s not acceptable to expect everything from your brother every time.
When you expect equal pay for work, take equal responsibilities. It’s not okay to play the “woman” card or “mother” card and shun tough tasks, working weekends or late nights every time.
Let the father take care of the unwell child once in a while. It’s okay. Your career is equally important and the father is equally responsible.
Let other family members take care of your kitchen sometimes. It’s okay if the kitchen platform is exceptionally unclean or sink is full of dirty vessels. Relax and take that break.
Help other women, even if you don’t like them. 😉 You never know what her battles are. Empower the needy ones, like your maids. Teach her basics of hygiene, education, and finances.
Have some friends (men and women) beyond your husband’s or boyfriend’s group. It’s okay to spend some time away from family with your friends.
Find time to read and keep yourself updated.
Be vigilant, be prepared to handle tough situations. When things go wrong, try to be balanced and find a way out of your problems. You don’t need to play the victim.
It’s okay not to cry. Not all women need to be sentimental all the time. 😉
Raise independent, caring and health-conscious kids. Make all family members equally accountable and responsible.
Create different girlie groups. Share your problems and seek opinions. Finally, take your own decision and be confident about it.
Spend some time in doing what you like, even if it’s just sitting idle. Don’t feel guilty about it, just because others feel it’s worthless.
