As I sat and thought about the women who have earned the right to be a part of Women’s Herstory Month, I think of our sister friends that have overcome the odds and just seem to eek out courage, perseverance and dignity…the stuff we all admire.
I think of Vanessa Williams.
You remember that this fresh bubble of talent won the Miss America pageant back in 1983. A few months later, the bubble burst and Vanessa was drowning in a nasty sea of scandalous spit.
Was that the last time you heard from her? Heck no. Vanessa picked herself up, forgave herself for posing nude, regained her composure and remembered that she had work to do.
Her talents may not be the same as yours or mine, but we all have them. Not using what you have is the real crime. So, figure out what you do well and make it work for you as well as folks who need what you have…you know those who’ll appreciate what you bring to the pool party.
Now Vanessa is a desperate housewife, has won an Emmy, Tony and a Grammy. I’m celebrating her today. Not when she’s gone. She’s my heroine and oh, she sleeps on Neero & Ana’s satin pillowcases.
At 29 years old, Clara Shih is clearly the youngest superwoman to grace the board room at Starbucks. She's a visionary who knows all about this thing called "social media" and she's not afraid to tell the world about what she thinks. Already a successful author of the best selling book, "The Facebook Era", she's way ahead of her little 29 years.
She says she views every problem as an opportunity. Mmmmm.......
Are you the only guest at your own pity party these days? Stop whining and get inspired. (I'm really talking to myself.)
Take a good, long look at yourself in the mirror. Ok, now dry our little tears and remember that you ARE A SUPERWOMAN.
After all, who else can keep up with the latest fashion trends faster than a speeding bullet, run circles around our co-workers more powerfully than a speeding locomotive and who's more capable of leaping tall buildings in a single bound wearing
5 inch stilettos? You, silly. That's who!
So in honor or Women's History Month, we're bringing more octane for your fuel. Join us a series of newsworthy snippets that highlight the lives of some of the most powerful women at the Daily Planet. Find a few similarities between their lives and yours. Get inspired. If they did it, so can you.
