5 Ways To Be A Fierce Woman

In the Webster Dictionary fierce is described as an intense or aggressive demeanor however, if I was to define fierce it would be defined as a person that displays bravery, confidence and determination. When I think about the characteristics of being a fierce woman I am often reminded of women like Angela Bassett, First Lady Michelle Obama, Maya Angelou, Sarah Jessica Parker and Julia Roberts. These women display a quality of elegance and fierceness to me. Below are five essential tips that embodies a fierce woman.

5 Ways To Be Fierce

1) Let Your Mess Be Your Message. As women we have evolved and with that evolution it is important that we don’t play the victim role but allow our scars to save someone else . I believe our mess is our message to assist someone else on their journey. 

2) Don’t Ask For Permission. A woman of fierce quality live her life on her terms and does not feel the need to broadcast her life. She lives life unapologetically and do what she feels is right for her. She does not look for validation from others or ask for permission. She simply lives her life effortlessly. 

3) Be Kind. A woman who is kind no matter how others treat her exudes self-confidence. She does not let others behavior or attitude kill her positivity. She shows respect to all & quickly disregard others behavior because she understands how others act is a reflection of their own misery.

4) Mystery is Sexy. A fierce woman carries a mystery about herself she does not attract unwanted attention to herself. She does not share her whole life story on social media or to anyone willing to listen. She knows how to mind her own business and understands this is the secret to a life of enjoyment!

5) Listen More. A woman who can just listen attentively without comment is a woman of refinement. It is important to learn to listen to people instead of feeling the need to talk all the time. When you learn to listen to people you will know all the things you need to know about them.

My Year of Jubilee, My Year of Celebrating Me!

 
I decided to take a whole year from October 1st 2013 to Oct 1st 2014 to focus on celebrating myself holistically. I realize as women we do not celebrate our accomplishments enough while we cater to so many other people we have to choose to cater to ourselves. I believe we lose sight of who we are because we put ourselves on the backburner supporting everyone else dreams. In this year I will celebrate who I am to the fullest. I am honored and excited to be in the November 2013 issue of Essence Magazine on pg. 14 defining my thoughts on black beauty. Get your copy today!
