5 Reasons Why It Is Truly Amazing To Be A Woman

I managed to narrow it down, just like Washington on women's rights.

5 Reasons Why It Is Truly Amazing To Be A Woman
NY Times

I have compiled a list, which, word on the street is larger than the turn out of the actual inauguration. This is a list of the most basic reasons why every day is a great day to be a woman.

1. We are resilient.

Shoot, We have had men and at times, even other women telling us how to dress, to feel, to cook, to raise our babies, yet we still come back fighting strong. Women have a strong sense of purpose when it comes to making their way around a bad situation and seeing the light.

2. We are adaptable.

Throughout the years, we have moved countries, explored oceans, and fought wars socially or otherwise. Despite having moments of tears and solitude, we are always able to jump from one side of the ledge to the other to get to where we know our end goal will be.

3. We are lovers.

This means that even though anyone tries to kick us down or knock us off the mountain, we will still reach out and try to see the good. I know many times women will feel hurt and act out, but as quickly as it comes, it goes. We are united, back together, admitting our faults and apologizing for our mistakes. We continue to love despite being hurt and it is truly a remarkable feat.

4. We are natural born cheerleaders

We will always see the good in anything that you try to do, even if we know that you have no business doing it. (Really, you wanna take up rock climbing and you have never even set foot in a national park? Oh you saw it on tv and it seems cool. Okay, well let's go to The North Face and get you a tent.) We are down for the ride and when it comes down to it, we will always try to build each other up.

5. We are relatable.

See, the beautiful thing about women is that we do not have to be the lone wolf. And actually, in most cases, we prefer not to be. We like to move in groups because there is a sense of safety in numbers, as well as a splash of power. Don't see a light at the end of that extremely long tunnel? I can so relate to that! We will help you achieve your goal because we know what it's like to be at the bottom of the barrel.

In case you have been living under a lack of social media rock (more power to you, by the way.) You are more than aware of the day old inauguration of our 45th President, Donald Trump. And in case that rock also had a staircase leading into a bunker in the floor, you are also well aware of certain policies that he is wanting to either cut back on or get rid of completely.

And per usual, it involves women and their rights, you know, as humans.

Saturday was a day for the books. Millions and millions of women from all around the world united and marched peacefully for their voices to be heard. (A little factoid for you: there are actual countries where women outnumber the men folk.)
And what a glorious day it was. Numerous friends of mine actually got into the thick of the events, ranging from my very own editor Lisa Thompson in Chicago. Get it girls.

All the way to Los Angeles where another friend of mine, Colleen and her boyfriend got a chance to sing Hallelujah with 500,000 other people in the streets.

@donaldlikethebarjas and I came to the Women's March and ended up singing Hallelujah with 500,000 strangers that felt like friends.

Although, I was very bummed that I didn't get to go down to the streets of Detroit to celebrate in this historic event, I still felt a huge connection to my fellow ladies as they said their peace...while doing it peacefully.

So, as we begin to push that giant rock off of the top of your head, here are a couple articles citing what Trump may have planned up his sleeve for the future of women in The United States.

We have Women's Violence Rights.
And over here we have Women's Reproductive Rights.

And that's just the surface of the wave of hate flowing for us women folk.

Okay, so he wants to cut us back down into a small box as if we were right smack dab in the middle of the 1920s. But I think he forgets that us women, well, we are a resilient bunch. We will continue to fight for our rights on this Earth because it is just as much a man's as it is ours. They may donate to life, but we form it within our bodies. We give life and plot twist, we breathe the exact same air. We work in offices, hospitals, and are even in the military. We climb mountains and surf the oceans. We are not just as capable, we are more than capable.

We are here and we aren't going anywhere.

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
