HAPPY INTERNATION WOMEN'S DAY

The Women in our Lives: Then, Now & Tomorrow

Are you a woman? 

I mean are you beautiful in and out, determined, trustworthy, strong, and able to conquer every battle you face. This is what being a woman means!

I used to hate being called a girl growing up but today I understand it's such a privilege. It's not an easy journey, I fight battles every day and I overcome them and I'm sure we all do. We fight against ourselves, the opposite sex, and society. When I say battles against ourselves, what I mean is at some points we've all questioned who we are" haven't you compared yourself to other women? 

Haven't you looked at the mirror and hated how you looked? Haven't you been heartbroken that it left you asking if you were enough? 

Haven't you stared at that big tummy after three children and you felt you weren't beautiful anymore? Haven't you secretly wished you could stop having your periods altogether? Haven't you wished you didn't have to get married and have children…

In a woman's lifetime, she has to go through more pain than any man. Is it the cramps or the pain during childbirth or the fact that only one woman in ten doesn't get assaulted in her lifetime or the fact that we are not accepted by some societies in the world or the fact we are seen as weak? 

I am proud to be a woman because if women like my mom could do it, why couldn't I?

Oprah Winfrey

J.k Rowling's

Ellen DeGeneres

Funmilayo Ransome Kuti

Chimamanda Adichie

These women all fought their way to get to where they are now and have achieved all they have today. And you don't have to be a celebrity. If you are a mother who is trying to raise your children in the right way then you are a hero. If you are making waves in your place of work or trying to grow your business you are a hero. Happy International Women's day y'all. Be proud of you are.

HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN OUT THERE!

I am Adesiji Oyinlola. I fell in love with writing at a very young age. It's so much more than a passion for me, it's a way of life and a gift. I am an undergraduate at Olabisi Onabanjo University. An old soul in a young body. Having been different from a very young age and regularly misunderstood, I have used writing as a means of escape. I can create a world I want using my imagination. I'm am thankful for the opportunity given by (lively.com.ng) to write for a larger audience. My dream is gradually becoming a reality. Remember to do what you love and never work a day in your life
