One of the hardest jobs in the world is being a woman. It’s not easy to be us. It’s not easy to gracefully wake up with a smile on our faces. Because the truth is, we get frustrated especially if the plan changes.

Morning rituals? We shave our legs, and other places that have unwanted hair. We do facials to have clear skin. We brush, floss and brush again after eating. Showers are the longest particularly when we’re singing, shampooing and conditioning.

It’s what I do!

We’re out the shower. One towel around body. Our heads are wet. So what we do? Air dry! Then, we must find a matching bra set. And if we can’t find one, we will have a bad day. Finding something to wear? That can take hours.

No pedicure? No problem! Closed-toe shoes!

Finally, we have an outfit. It wasn’t what we expected, but it will do. Now, we have to inspect for stains. If it’s wrinkled…


The outfit is on point. Matching bra and panties on deck. The next thing on the list: make up! That can take awhile. I just put something light and call it a day.

We cook and clean. Oh my Goodness! We get a monthly visitor from mother nature. She says, “Truth, you’re not pregnant so use a pad.” Cramps come along like my day isn’t bad enough already.

And when we’re pregnant, we end up pushing human aliens out of our vajajays.


Sometimes, when it gets tough, we shed tears. But we keep going. We keep striving. A goal is nothing without a dream. So, we add more goals to reach more dreams.

To every woman out there, I salute you. If I could give you a big hug, I would. Thank you for being a great wife, mother, sister, grandmother, niece, cousin and friend. Thank you for not giving up. Thank you for everything you do. It’s not every day we get compliments, but today is your day. Thank you for being the light at the end of the tunnel.

As always, you are Beautiful. You are Smart. You are Amazing. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
