Stand proud and make it happen!
Waiting for everyone to understand what you want and give you what you want, the way you want it, while treating you as you want to be treated is a real gamble. It may or may not work. But for sure it is giving your power away. And no matter the outcome, your experience is very muted, because it was not you that made it all happen.
Stand up for what you want! Create and take what you want. Make room for what you want. Make yourself visible, heard, outspoken, felt and thought of. Be the most powerful advocate for what you want.
Go make it happen!
