As little girls, we are taught to be seen and not heard, to value beauty over brains, and that our success is measured by our marital status or whether or not we bear children. Having this ingrained in us from a young age has often fostered low self esteem and guilt for desiring to achieve before marriage and beginning a family. Many times we quietly sit by and let our needs go unmet because we are afraid to speak up and say what we want. Unfortunately, this behavior leaves us feeling depressed, inadequate and unfulfilled.

Today I want to challenge you to move beyond the boundaries constructed by society. Break free from stereotypical gender roles. Stop waiting on others to see the greatness that is already on the inside of you. Live out your greatness. The world will eventually catch up to you.
