As the Mother to a young daughter I strive to be a good role model to my daughter, even when the going gets tough. Actually – I think my daughter learns about my resilience and strength through times of weakness. All that she has learned I hope will assist her in growing up to be a kind and remarkable woman. Speaking of remarkable woman, I’ve teamed up with the makers of Pine-Sol® and activist Rosie Perez to talk about the remarkable woman we are, and those we know and look up too with their When Life Gets Tough, Women Rise Above It campaign. Pine-Sol® has already awarded a $25,000 donation to Women Empowered, a nonprofit based in Los Angeles that connects, educates and supports women of all ages and backgrounds, inspiring them to give back to their communities.
I recently wrote a post over at The Young Mommy Life talking about my resilience. I think my times of resilience have made me remarkable. Wait – did I just give myself a compliment? Go me! Seriously, we as women have had to be flexible and we go through hardships, and we survive – better, stronger, wiser. Women are remarkable…it’s in our DNA. Having a child at 19 and thriving through the hardships that surrounded being a teenage parent have been difficult. But looking over my life I believe what has made me triumphant in the face of adversity is my ability to fight forward. Of course when challenges face us it’s easy to cave in, to let it consume you. But is that the legacy you want to leave? Is that really who you are? It may have taken me time to muster up the strength, but I have always fought my way through struggle and hardships. Unsure of my next steps, but never complacent with being still. My fighter mentality (all mental never physical!) is something I hope my daughter will see and pick up because it’s given me the strength and confidence to live MY life.
