"A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms."
This is one of my favorite "Ladies Empowerment" quotes.
I think it's so important for women to be able to compliment each other and lift one another up without being in competition with one another. Like flowers in a garden, each one is beautiful and each one has something unique to offer. Together, they make an amazing, glorious and radiant display.
I love seeing other women achieve their dreams. I love it when a girlfriend is successful in her job, relationship or any personal goals that she has set for herself. I've learned that it doesn't diminish me or my accomplishments in any way. In fact, it inspires me. It makes me more focused and if there is anything I feel that is lacking, I decide to step up my game. Having friends that are talented and successful makes it clear that anything is possible if you pray hard and work hard. For me, the two go hand-in-hand.
Remember, ladies...The only competition you have is the with the person you were yesterday.
