For all the Ascenders women & all ascending women from Jayalakshmi Thirugnanam (Director, Ascenders Technologies):
This is a message to you from me on the occasion of Women’s Day – woman to woman.
“If you pick a particular role or way people see you, it generally sticks for life.”
A small statement I came across very recently and I am amazed at its hard-hitting truth because it came from a woman and she meant it for women.
So choose your roles carefully and decide how you want to be seen and perceived.
Make up your minds that you are always equal to men, if not superior to them.
And I mean in all ways – emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.
We are usually told (mostly by other well-meaning women) to speak, behave and even think in a manner that is convenient for menfolk.
We are conditioned to believe that we are around to facilitate men.
Please do not give in to such wrong beliefs.
Every human being is born in this world to experience self-fulfillment and happiness.
These could come from any source.
You could be happy being a career woman or you could be happy tending a family.
You could be happy painting beautiful pictures or you could be happy creating delicious meals.
It could be anything!
It is up to you to recognize what makes you happy; make it your objective and respect yourself for it.
Only if you respect yourself, believe in your dreams and follow them through, you will be respected by the world.
Express yourself, your desires, dreams and opinions clearly and firmly.
Everything else will fall in place – how you want it to.
