“You can’t be what you can’t see.” ― Marian Wright Edelman

Girls and women may enjoy more freedom and privileges now than our female ancestors ever did. But we all still struggle with stereotypes that keep us from reaching our full potential. Society has deeply-embedded beliefs about women that make it difficult to accomplish a lot of things. Whether it is at home, at school, or in the workplace, expectations on women tend to be quite limiting.

The lack of compelling stories and images across different media platforms make it hard for young and adults alike to find female role models. What little coverage there is of women doing great feats is often marred with persisting stereotypes that tend to downplay their accomplishments.

But what if people from around the world, especially girls, start to see women on screen or read about their great feats? It may not be the solution that could change how society’s perception of the so-called “weaker” sex, but it can help children grow up seeing that females can be strong, intelligent, and accomplished as those of another gender.

In Asia where women are traditionally perceived to be subservient, there are signs of changes that challenge how they are portrayed. The entertainment scene has gradually seen women playing roles displaying grit and strength. A growing number of female artists are likewise breaking through barriers that many have not dared before. For fans of Asian films and TV shows, finding a Korean drama with strong female lead is no longer impossible. And with Korean dramas so popular not just in the entire region but across the globe, it is heartwarming to see that no matter how small, there have been inroads in presenting women in a different light.

We can’t escape the harsh reality of the world today. Our state of living continue to improve as the years go by, but more circumstances come along with it. The good news is, we have the power to change our reality. There is no perfect life, but there is a life that we all deserve. But first things first, start with yourself.

Focus On Your Health

Health is wealth, they say. It is the truth. Our body is a vessel that we should take care of. Becoming healthy is not easy now a days. Food choices became more difficult as more and more preservatives going into our food. Start with getting the nutrition that your body needs by eating the right kind of food.

Think… Think… Think…

It is a skill that will take you everywhere you want to go. Our mind is so powerful that no computer could match it. We all have minds for a reason, use it. Allow your self to take a break and create ideas on how you can improve your life. Thinking things through allows you to plan ahead and be ahead of the game.

Shrug Off Haters Opinion

There are difference between using criticism as a way to improve and letting haters get into your brain. We don’t mean that you disregard other opinions but have wisdom on choosing who to listen to. If you let haters and bashers get into you, it will only tear you down. Don’t kick all the barking dogs and delay you from reaching your destination. Let them bark, that’s what they always do.

Embrace Divine Relationship

There are relationships that are bad for you but there are relationships that will mold you. Cherish the people who stood by you at the lowest point, do the same for them. Humans need love and attention. Unfortunately, you cannot get it from acquiring material things. Only a loving human can give you that. So, value divine relationships in your life and learn from each other.

Leave Your Comfort Zone

Staying in one place all the time will not let you grow as a person. Go out and leave your comfort zone. Take on difficult tasks even if you think it is bigger than you are. Love challenge and it will love you back. Face your fears and never let it stop you from growing.

Know Your Flaws And Use Them At Your Advantage

We are not perfect. We all flaws we tend to hide. But hiding them will only make it worst. Accept your flaws and the fact that you have to live them. What you can do is to accentuate your assets and use flaws at your advantage. If you consider yourself not young anymore, then that means that you have more wisdom compared to the younger ones.
