As an ever-evolving woman living in the 21st century, I find myself immersed and enamored with woman who are consistently making a difference in todays rotten world. Activists, mothers, designers, philanthropists, politicians, wildly successful business women- whatever it may be, these chicks bring me both joy and movitation, and that alone is worth sharing. And while the Harriet Tubmans, Rosa Parks, and even the Katherine Switzers truly paved the way, I think its quite clear that woman are ruling the world today, more than ever. Just take a quick glimpse at the most recent US elections:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Youngest woman ever elected to Congress
IIhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib: First Muslim women elected to Congress
Sharice Davids & Deb Haaland: First Native American women elected to Congress
AND Ayanna Pressley: The first black woman elected to Congress in my former state of Massachusetts.
As you can see.. the future is most certainly FEMALE!
So for those who know me further than this site, Cleo Wade won’t come as a surprise. Frankly you might deem it too typical- but she’s made such an impact on my personal point of view, I can’t help but share her vision. Cleo is an artist, poet, and author & her work speaks to the power of self-love, the impact of beloved community building, and the importance of social justice. Her love notes found in her best selling book, Heart Talk: Poetic Wisom for a Better Life, act as daily affirmations and they are most certainly my favorite way to fall asleep and begin, each day ❤
