Keep your head up and work hard through it. The same people laughing at you will celebrate you Don’t let being a woman hinder you, I have and still have to fight to get people to respect and appreciate my work and not limit me because I am female so this really encourages me to keep pushing and breaking boundaries Put God first, enjoy your life, love, be a good human and do what makes you happy. Don’t let anything hold you back because you are a mother, wife, young, older or a female “YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE A FOOTPRINT THAT WILL LAST IF YOU ARE ALWAYS WORKING ON TIPTOES” “Leymar Gbowee” ❤
