GROWN ASS WOMEN LESSONS FOR A YOUNG LADIES

GROWN ASS WOMEN LESSONS FOR A YOUNG LADIES

WHAT ARE THINGS YOU DID AS A YOUNG LADY THAT HAVE MADE YOU A BETTER GROWN ASS WOMAN?

 

There are many things that we did as a young woman that we no longer do as a Grown Ass Woman. Often we fought hard not to let go of the old ways and the good old days. We learned lessons like if you don’t want anyone to tell your SECRET, then you don’t share the SECRET. Lessons like happiness is your own responsibility may have taken longer for some to learn than others.
We learned to find happiness in even the little things, because often they make the biggest difference. Of course to stay true to ourselves, this might have had to wait until we learned who WE were. We learn to set boundaries and goals. As well as being disciplined enough to make sacrifices so these goals can be achieved and not compromise ourselves or our integrity.

As we came into Grown Ass Womanhood, sometimes we needed to begin a new way of life, living and loving. When we were growing into our own, as our elders have said, it probably took a minute to learn our place in the world. Changing a career, changing the state of mind or your longitude and latitude can be essential parts of a woman’s life. After we leave the immature, insecure and materialistic existence that we held on so tight to, we embrace not taking things so seriously.
I posed that very question to my peoples on my Social Media Outlets and this is what we came up with.

1
LOVE YOURSELF MORE THAN YOU LOVE OTHERS.
And stop making excuses so YOU can do it. As women, we spend many moments trying to please so many others. We often do not leave anything for ourselves.

 

2
LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE
There are barriers as young people which keep us from hearing and feeling this inner voice, intuition, higher power, some call it our conscious. We learn to value peace and quiet. If we are not still, then we cannot focus on anything because we are too busy with being engulfed in everything. conscious

 

3
NO…. No….nO
It is necessary to say NO sometimes. We are often enablers and keep people from being responsible for their own destinies. no no

 

4
FEELING FABULOUS AND FULFILLED IN THE SKIN THAT YOU ARE IN
At some point in life, we look in the mirror and inhale who we are. Defining what is healthy for you, is essential to enjoying life.

 

5
LIVING AND NOT EXISTING
There is a huge difference between the two. Making your way through life like a mouse in a maze, is existing. Trying new things, meeting new people especially creating a smile in other’s hearts and definitely your own heart are a part of LIVING.

 

6
OPINIONS ARE LIKE ASSHOLES – EVERYONE HAS ONE
Other people’s opinions once mattered to the extent of unnecessary adjustments in our young lives. Now, we understand that people always think too much about what does not concern them. I do what makes me and my creator happy. (NOT IN THAT ORDER) Inspired by feedback from China W opinions

 

7
ENJOYING AND EMBRACING YOUR SPACE IN THE UNIVERSE
We understand how real energy is. Negativity and positivity are not meant to balance one another. So, we cannot be negative sometimes and positive sometimes. When this happens, life will feel stagnant.
To achieve the life we are meant to. We learn that it is healthier to enjoy a positive life. As well as knowing that we create the positive lives we aspire to live.

 

8
POWERLESS WORDS
Not allowing other’s words to have power over you. As a young woman, we often gave power to words. Others could say things that hurt to the core. A prime example… if someone called me a Hoe or BITCH when I was younger, it was time to take off shoes and earrings and grab some vaseline. Today, BITCH is a word that will not CONTROL me. – Inspired by feedback from Stephanie P queen bitch

Kharma
What we say and do is a reflection of Me, Myself and I. Just because no one saw what we did, or the person we said something about did not hear us, does not mean that we will not be affected.
As a Grown Ass Women, we understand what right and wrong FEELS like. Often, instant gratification is WRONG and might feel FABULOUS. But right feels BETTER than WRONG in the end.

THE VALUE OF FRIENDS
As young women, we may not have fostered relationships with females or should I say, the progressive and constructive kinds of females. Understanding that certain friends have certain roles is definitely a lesson I have learned. Some are great listeners, some are cool to sip a glass of wine and listen to a live band with, and some like to feed their faces at different food establishments. As a Grown Ass Women, we have learned the value of having friends. – Inspired by feedback from I.J.B friends

 

As a Grown Ass Women, the best lesson is to know that we are always learning. And to share our lessons, even when people seem to not be listening.
