#UseYourAnd to Take A Stand!

We, the Women, are not and will not be bound or restricted to one label. I am supporting Venus in this initiative where women all over the world are being encouraged to #UsetheirAND and Take a Stand! When we are supposed to fulfil our responsibilities and be a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a daughter-in-law then why can’t we be –

Angelic AND Adventurous
Beautiful AND Brainy
Cute AND Crazy
Delicate AND Dependable
Emotional AND Eccentric
Frank AND Forthright
Giggly AND Graceful
Hot AND Healthy
Interactive AND Independent
Jaunty AND Jovial
Kind AND Knowledgeable
Loving AND Lovable
Mild AND Magnificent 
Naughty AND Natural
Obedient AND Observant
Pretty AND Persistent
Quiet AND Qualified

Sensible AND Sarcastic
Talkative AND Talented

Vigilant AND Vivacious
Wise AND Wild
Xenodochial AND Xotic
Yappy AND Youthful
Zesty AND Zealous
Why do you call us pretty and stop? We are not just one thing, we are infinite, and we are myriad!
When someone tells you that you can either be a homemaker OR a working woman then shut them up by using your AND taking a stand for yourself.
Tell them that you can be anything that you are not limited to what they think you can be. You can be a Fashionista AND a Basketball Player, an Astronaut AND a Choreographer, you can be anything and everything but not just one! 
All you men out there, cheer the women you love and tell them that they are much more than being your mother, daughter, sister or friend. 
“They told you, you could be anything.
 A beautiful astronaut.
 A soccer-playing ballerina. A superstar.
 Then said here’s what you really are.
 With a label to size you up and box you in if you let it.
 Don’t… step outside that box and forget it.
 When someone labels you this or that, use your “And” to take a stand.
 With your legs and your voice and your head and your heart.
 If someone says you’re smart say, “yes and…”
 If someone says you’re pretty say “yes and…” Help them understand. 
 You are polished nails and a polished mind.
 Raw and refined.
 Shy and bold. not just what you’re told.
 You are warmth and wisdom
 And grace and guts.
 No “ifs” or “buts”
 Just “ands”…”
