“I had to make my own living and my own opportunity…Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come; you have to get up and make them.” -Madame C.J. Walker, 1914
Amen to that! So often, it’s easy to get comfortable, dwell on what someone else didn’t do to aide in our advancement, or see what we “don’t have” and how that impacts where we’d like to go. Instead, we should focus on the resources we DO have…which are much more abundant than women like Madame C.J. Walker had in 1914…can you imagine living back then? And when it comes to hair, all you have to do is book an appt. with your fav. stylist, zip to the corner beauty supply or even buy a quick piece to stick on your head and keep it moving…Madame C.J. put in some serious work for us back then! Take time to appreciate where you are, what you’re doing and the opportunities that are waiting for you…one day, almost a hundred years from now…maybe someone will be quoting you!
