She’s not your cometition; Day six

Love and be confident in who you are and what you bring.  This is not a picture of an egotistical, lone, superwoman, but of a woman who is more-than-okay with who she is: her ilk, the skills she has honed and the journey she has travelled.  She has the humility to be a continuous learner, and to bring all she is, confidently, to the table, complementing the women on either side of her.

One of the best things we can do for our loved ones, our friends and for those with whom we work and contribute, is to know ourselves.  From this we can begin to value, love and be confident in our strengths and brilliance.
