Everything you experience in life as a woman is worth it. Even the moments when you ask yourself “why is this happening to me”.
The strength and wisdom of a woman is definitely obvious and valued. So, what if another woman hasn’t quite found her inner strength or wisdom yet?
Should all women be obligated to help her find it?
I think there could be two answers to this question.
- OF COURSE!
Unfortunately, society has constructed unfair challenges that most women have to face. Whether that is unequal pay in the workplace or being seen as inferior just because of our sex.
But none of these issues have stopped women from achieving their goals, raising the bar in their career fields and making history. So when these women feel like they have reached their “Queen” status and wear their crown with pride, what happens to other women who haven’t figured out how to navigate to this stage of her royalty yet?
In chess, the “Queen” is described as “the most powerful chess piece that each player has, able to move any number of unobstructed squares in any direction along a rank, file, or diagonal on which it stands.”
This statement is true to your life too. As a Queen, you are powerful. You have the ability to achieve and do anything you desire in your life. You can move and break boundaries in any direction.
All of your life’s victories, disappointments, challenges and successes could be a “How to Be a Queen in the Game of Chess” guidebook for another woman. Your story is not in vain, it’s worth being told and heard. Then, you could teach other Queens just how you achieved that victory after so many years, gracefully moved on from that disappointment, overcame that challenge and still found peace, and remained confident to achieve your success.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. (Prov. 31:26)
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. (Prov. 31:25)
You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you. (Sol. 4:7)
