My dear Somali sister, use the power within you

On this International Women\’s Day (#IWD2016), I send this message to Somali women.

My dear Somali sister

Do not wait for someone to \”empower\” you

And reach out to you. Look within.

Deep inside yourself. Use the power.

That is already there. Within you. Inside you.

Somali sister.

When someone gives you power.

Don’t you know that.

They can take that power.

Back from you. Away from you?

And then what do you do?

Where do you find your power, again?.

My dear Somali sister.

Find the power yourself.

Inside you.

Unleash your power within.

Your OWN power.

Nobody can take that power away from you.

It is yours. To keep. Now and forever.

My dear Somali sister.

Blaming others isn’t powerful.

It puts you and the ones after you.

In a vicious cycle of self pity.

And victimization.

It is destructive and dis-empowering.

My dear Somali sister.

Break all limits.

Free your mind. Believe in yourself.

Believe in the possibilities.

And you will see, my dear Somali sister.

That the possibilities will reveal themselves to you.

So start freeing your mind.

Utilize the power of your own mind.

Launch your own success.

My dear Somali sister.

On this day.

I am wishing all Somali women.

Success and best wishes.

In freeing their mind.

In finding their power within.

In realizing their full potential.

Today. Tomorrow. Always.
