Every Wednesday I see the post hashtagged #WCW accompanied by pictures of celebrities, friends and random individuals. initially it seemed to be something that the kids were doing but more and more I am seeing it as an ageless social media trend. However, with the exception of the one time that Daja ( my daughter ) was my #WCW I have never posted anyone else until now.
Today my Woman Crush Wednesday is none other than myself. Yes, you read right; I am my Woman Crush today. No, I am not self absorbed or self centered but I do love me some me. While I may not be a video vixen, Rihanna or Beyonce; I am Maui Bigelow. Despite who I am not, I celebrate who I am and the fact that I am my star player.
I think that many women miss out on a lot in life because they are afraid to boldly state and embrace the greatness that they embody. As women we have to learn that our happiness and success begins with us. We have to accept and love who we are before we can expect acceptance and love from anyone else. You can’t sale something to others that you are not willing to buy yourself. Loving yourself isn’t saying you are perfect, it is just saying that in spite of your imperfections, you love the woman in the mirror.
I am many things; some are good and some not so much but despite that I know that I am great. Do I have areas of my life that I want to change or improve? You damn right!!!!! However, while I am working to be a better me, I will love myself through it. If life’s tables turns and no one else f*cks with me, it may hurt but I will survive because I f*ck with me and at the end of the day…….. that is most important.
