I am a woman. And yes I am two.
I am the woman I am. And I am the woman I want to be.
I was born in the nineties as one, whole, and complete. They say we are the miracle generation. I grew up to become two; me and the women who have contributed to my existence.
I am a woman. And yes I am two. I think the word to this is mélange.
And you are just like me. A woman of two.
Our problem is that we, women, don’t give ourselves enough credit for who we are. We are not aware of our potential. We don’t see the light within us.
I’ve questioned my sense of self a lot. Like who am I? What do I want out of my life? Do I want to leave my mark? Do I want this job or that? Do I live up for a purpose? Do I jump out of bed every morning without having to hit the snooze button? So many pending questions.
But one day, I got my answers.
I have found my light. And I call it the diamond!
My idol, Diana Vreeland, showed me direction. She made me discover that in a wardrobe full of all the luxuries of the world, I had one missing piece; the diamond.
Diana Vreeland is a woman of words. Her words resonate with me. Who she is resonates with what I want to be. She is a woman with one name and many titles. Diana Vreeland has contributed to my growth as a woman. I have become a woman who is never afraid to knock doors. She made me talk to the world. Respond. Rebel. Be. Exist. She made me dream. She made me believe in my dreams and in the power of my potential. She made me write my name proudly and sign it with “I am a dreamer.” She gave me the tool for modern living, and the tool is to use my passion because the world needs it. She made me develop a sense of self and sense of duty.
This woman inspires me incredibly. Maybe I look like her. Maybe you look like her. Yes. You!
This is not about me. This is not about the woman I am or the woman I want to be. This is about you. This is about every woman who at some point couldn’t see the light through herself. This is to every woman who has all the resources in the world but lacks the tools.
For each woman, there is an idol. Always look up for women who have your vision. For women who have fascinated you while walking their way. Stick to them. Trust me, they have an eye for you. Don’t worry they will lead you all the way.
Some might say they don’t have an idol, here I tell you. If you don’t have one, make one. Let it be an imaginary projection of the woman you want to be. Picture her. Nurture her. Feed her. So one day you and the woman you want to be will become one. Whole and complete.
Your time will come; and until then, embrace whatever comes your way. Dream big. And never settle. Just the way Mrs. Vreeland said it once: “There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.”
Wear your diamond. And keep the light. Always.
