I resolve to establish an agreement with ALL of my sisters, whether they are black, white, red, yellow or brown. Whether they are strong or weak, rich or poor, educated at Harvard or educated on 17th Street, working in the C-suite or cleaning it. Whether they are independent or leaning and depending, confident or lacking self-esteem, fighting back or being abused and misused. I will uphold this commitment to my sisters.
This is an excerpt from The Sister Accord written by COURAGEous beauty Sonia Myles. Liquid Courage Cosmetics is the beauty empowerment brand of choice for women worldwide so we are super excited to highlight Sonia as an Everyday Woman of Courage and bring visibility to the powerful Sister Accord Movement.
Sonia says, “courage is being filled with fear and taking the “leap” anyway! What is key in this statement is that in order to truly be courageous you must be scared out of your mind to address a situation or to move forward on an idea. If you’re not afraid, then it doesn’t take courage to act. In my experience, having courage is a journey. For me, it began when I conquered my fear of dogs. Once I “faced my fear” of something that controlled my life for so many years, I became unstoppable!!!”
What was the most courageous thing you’ve done this year? Co-founding Rivers Media Group LLC with my business partner, C. Key. We are two fearless ladies with BIG DREAMS and now have the ability to touch people all around the world with music and entertainment via mobile devices via our partnership with Urban Planet Mobile! If someone would have told me 18 months ago when I was an executive at Procter & Gamble that I would be living this amazing dream, I would have thought they were crazy! I am pursuing my goals and passions with great tenacity & a sense of urgency. It FEELS GREAT!!!!
For anyone in need of courage, Sonia offers the following advice. “Get centered, get focused and determine what God’s purpose is for your life. I have come to understand that when I am operating in his God’s will, everything comes together when and how it is supposed to. When I step outside of his will, chaos ensues!”
