Today is International Women’s Day . What better day to Be Your Best Self and feeling good about yourself, promoting & supporting other women?

No competition or comparison.

Ans so, my sisters, i’m going to sing to you today (well, pretend i’m singing) just that:


“Sister, you’ve been on my mind.

Sister, we’re two of a kind.

So, sister, I’m keepin’ my eye on you.

I betcha think I don’t know nothin But singin’ the blues, oh, sister Have I got news for you,

I’m something. I hope you think that you’re something too.

Scufflin’, I been up that lonesome road And I seen a lot of suns going down.

Oh, but trust me, No low life’s gonna run me around.

So let me tell you, something Sister.

Remember your name; No twister. Gonna steal your stuff away, my sister.

We sho’ ain’t got a whole lot of time So-o-o shake your shimmy Sister ‘Cause honey the ‘shug’ is feelin’ fine.”

(Written by QUINCY JONES, ROD TEMPERTON, LIONEL B., JR. RICHIE. Lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group)

Change starts from within; that’s why training your consciousness should be your Priority Numero 1 – a daily practice to silence your inner critic.
