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.
