My Own Intelligence

“I admit it. I am louder than the average human being and have no fear of speaking my mind. These traits don’t come from the color of my skin but from an unwavering belief in my own intelligence.” — Michelle Obama

I came across this quote a little over a week ago and it has been speaking life to me ever since! I’ve always taken a “shine” to First Lady Michelle Obama, even before she was our First Lady.  She is the epitome of a balanced, successful, inspiring woman. Now, I understand why I love her so much.

Her quote calls all of us to interrogate our true feelings about who and what we are in this world? Her quote calls all of us to challenge what we’ve been taught about ourselves.  Her quote calls all of us to critique our notions of self-esteem and true freedom.

As an exSuperwoman, Michelle Obama’s statement embodies the best of what I am and plan to continue being.  What does it embody for you? What would your life look like if you could dare be every ounce of who you are, what you are, and what you will be?

What is your unwavering faith in these days?
