I saw this online and thought this would be great to share with you. It’s very true, we forget as Mother’s, wives, women even as Father’s, Husbands and men that we have a right to be happy. How can we lead if we don’t pave our path the way that we want? At this rate, we’ll always be lost. The messages from society from the day we were born came from a mindset of taught behaviour. ‘Marching orders’… as I like to call it. If you don’t do, act or be as society has dictated, you are not normal. Well….it does NOT have to be this way. Let’s show the generations it’s okay to make you happy first before you become responsible for anyone else. Everyone is their own person. Don’t look to others for happiness. Jada explains this so perfectly.
I’m sorry if you’re stuck in a box. I’m still growing, but I know I will not be staying in anyone’s idea of what I should be. I’m going to be me. I’m going to make me happy – “gut happy“, as I like to call it. What do I mean? That happiness should beam from within you, deep down in your gut – like when they say you had a gut feeling – same idea with happiness. Make choices that benefit you. It’s the only way you will attract what you want and who you want. Remember that!!
I know this video talks about being a Mother and Wife. But turning this around, it can also apply to men who are Fathers and Husbands. These words of wisdom can apply to anyone in my opinion.
