Its take an incredible amount of courage it takes to live authentically. It's really not easy to not hide behind a persona. To stand fully in who God created you to be and say to the world "Here I am and I am not apologising for anything", To say "here I am, and I am equal to all of you". I am equal to Monarchs, presidents, philosophers, pop stars and the homeless man on the street. Standing in your truth is not easy. If it were, we'd all be free from shame...

"I live in my head a lot. I might as well make it a happy place." This is what I said to myself after years of self-torture. I would wake up after a night of partying, and the first thing I would say to myself is "I have a headache, and I'm pretty sure God is upset with me". I would spend the rest of the day condemning myself because the word says drunkness is a sin. So now I am a worthless sinner. But in 1 John 1:9 says If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. We live in a generation of people cutting each other off. I mean this generation is brutal with the scissors! Which is perfectly fine if that's what you need to do, but if you really stopped and listened to half the things you say to yourself you might want to consider cutting yourself off as well cos you're toxic to yourself and your own progress. Cut it out! "You yourself as much as anyone in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection- Buddha" ...

Sisterhood to me means women coming together and empowering each other. It means having a sister's back, defending her honour even when her back is turned. Defying the catty stereotype. You may wonder why bother? Because we are stronger together. Imagine what we can achieve if we put down our claws and really got down to the business of helping each other take over boardrooms, politics, stock markets, arts, science...
