Positive Changes 4 Women, Inc,  is a blog to empower  women and girls to become who they were meant to be.

 As a teen I would often stand up for what I believed in and in return I was often labeled as “aggressive,”  “angry,” or a “bitch.”  What  is shocking and quite disappointing is that 25 years later, society still wants to label women who are assertive and know what they want as  “angry,” “aggressive,” or a “Bitch.” According to the website http://www.togetherthere.org

“girls idealize leadership qualities and skills, like being talented, caring, honest, hard-working, confident, good listeners, and team players. But only 21% of girls believe they have the qualities required to be a good leader. In other words, she knows what it takes to lead, but doesn’t have the confidence to do so”

Positive changes 4 women, Inc; mission is all about empowering women and girls to break free from the chains of limiting beliefs so they can  become the person they were always meant to be. In helping women and girls to find their true voice, they can become the leaders they were meant to be and most importantly be able to support other women and girls in their pursuit of leadership, whether it be a physician, mayor, stay at home mother, or even president. I  will offer a plethora of information, exercises and inspirational quotes from numerous resources. . I believe the first step to change is to take accountability and responsibility for our thoughts and actions. Women and girls need more Positive female role models  So with that said, what a great  way to end this post by sharing a poem by Virginia Satir who was a key figure in the area of Family Therapy.

I AM OKAY 

by Virginia Satir

In all the world,
there is no one else exactly like me –
everything that comes out of me is authentically mine,
because I alone choose it – I own everything about me – my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
whether they be to others or to myself –
I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears –
I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me – by so doing I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts –
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know –
but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me –
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me – If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turned out to be unfitting, I can discard that which I feel is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded –
I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do.
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive,
and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me –
I own me, and therefore I can engineer me –
I am me &

I AM OKAY
