A: A woman warrior is someone who recognizes her strengths and celebrates her weaknesses. She lifts herself up as she elevates others.
She realizes the biggest competition is with one’s self.
She fails with grace, or maybe at times she’s an absolute mess, but the point is she comes out greater for it and she continually seeks that greatness.
A woman warrior might be afraid, but she loves to wrestle fear in the face.
My biggest fears were small planes and heights, so I became a pilot.
I learned to understand what that fear meant, and realized we fear what we don’t know. A woman warrior realizes her time is now, and she is fully enraptured by the present moment, giving it her all.
Q: What’s Your Life Motto?
A: My life motto is if you can conceive it, and if you believe it, you can achieve anything on which you focus your energy. Our minds are insanely powerful. Way more powerful than most realize. Think about it...we primarily use five senses (though some neurologists believe we use up more than 20). The ancient Egyptians believed we had dozens more. And experts today say we only use a minuscule percentage of our brain. We have so much untapped potential and brain power. The key is to unlock that!
Along the same vein of power of thought, I love this quote:
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
Q: What’s Your One Super Power?
A: My super power is compassion. To me, compassion is empathy with action. Meaning I don’t see someone in a dire situation and think oh, how sad. I do something.Perhaps even a subtle act of kindness. For example, I want to approach the homeless man, look him in the eye, and ask him his name. A seemingly simple act can bring someone dignity, or help them feel seen. We are so afraid of even making eye contact with one another. Compassion is a chance to foster connection with our fellow human and see what unites us, rather than what divides us.
