It’s Black History month, and what a joy it is for us to celebrate and honor the determination, the leadership, and the hope that Kamala Harris brings to our country as she was sworn in recently as the first female vice president of the United States of America!
We imagine there were many young women watching at home realizing that their dreams of high office could now become a reality. It is possible! Speaking of dreams, find out more about our first-ever Live Your Dreams retreat in September 2021 at our new oasis, Good&Sharp Studios (our dream!). We’ll support you in making your dreams a reality.
The early life experiences of children are so influential in shaping their dreams and who they aspire to be in life. They look around and imagine what could be possible for them based on those people they see who look like them and live the way they do. The examples they see, in daily life and in the media, shape who they are, how they view the world, and how they dream into the future. If you can see it, you can be it!
And in the same way, many children will believe, even unconsciously, if you don’t see it, you can’t be it.
Today, young people see Vice President Harris being sworn in and see a daughter of an immigrant mother from India, an immigrant father from Jamaica, and the first African American and first South Asian American vice president in our US history.
They see that her parents were activists who brought their daughter to civil rights demonstrations instilling her with a strong sense of justice. They even introduced her to several powerful role models at that time, civil rights leader Constance Baker Motley as just one example.
Today, many more young women of all colors and backgrounds in the United States can see themselves represented in leadership in our country and can aspire to become something they never thought possible.
And as Vice President Harris shared, her mother often would say to her, “Kamala, you may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last. That’s why breaking those barriers is worth it. As much as anything else, it is also to create that path for those who will come after us.”
Today, thankfully, the path is being blazed for more women to follow!
And for many young men in our country, this begins to normalize the experience. Women as leaders of our country.
One step forward towards making our country a better place for all people. May the legacy continue.
Do you have dreams that you have had since childhood that are not yet realized? Maybe you thought they weren’t possible? Not realistic?
Take a moment right now and dust off those dreams you put on a shelf. What if…… what if those dreams could actually happen?
Quiet those voices in your head that say no for right now. Just take a moment and dream. What if……….what if you could manifest those dreams? What if it were possible?
We believe it is!
