Sports & Women’s Empowerment

We are all in this TOGETHER!

Why do we play?  Because we CAN!  Our entire being says yes as we move on the court, swim in the pool, run on the field, glide on the ice or drive a ball up the fairway.  Whether in practice or game, we feel strong, able and empowered.  Playing allows us the opportunity to battle against an opponent, as well as ourselves.  Sports are the vehicle by which we learn to work together with VICTORY as our united goal.  We get to stand our ground and be heard through our actions.  We get to WIN!

I believe LIFE is the ultimate game.  We play in it, while always remembering we get to play above it as well.  Just as in sports, life provides us with opportunities to choose who we are being.  Are we the champion or the loser, comeback story or the quitter, cheerleader or criticizer, leader or follower?   No matter what’s going on in the game, we ALWAYS get to choose.  It is in that moment, we get to open ourselves up to what it really means to be EMPOWERED.

Right now, we are experiencing a wellspring of women’s voices.  Voices, as individual as they may be, they stand for us collectively.  We are hearing these voices, all of which are devoid of any victim attachment.  They are being heard not because of volume, but rather the display of one’s authentic self.  It is in this way of being, our vulnerability shines through not as weakness, but rather as our strength.

We are all in this together.  As we continue moving forward~ let us continue celebrating each other, being strong for each other and supporting each other as we learn to tame the self-defeating voice within.  The moment we feel our worth within, nothing changes, YET EVERYTHING CHANGES.
