The women I know wake up with insecurities.
They wake up feeling like they have already failed the day in some capacity, even though the only thing they’ve done is opened their eyes. They worry they’re behind and will never feel caught up (whatever in the world “caught up” really means).
They lament a bad dream and the impact it might have on their workday. They don’t inherently feel like they’ve “got this.”
But what we do have is each other. We have the vulnerability and transparency that comes with a close confidant to whom you can reach out and say “Hey girl, hey.”
“Hey girl, hey” is asking for help and receiving it. “Hey girl, hey” is sharing your fraudulent, silly insecurities with someone who will respond by telling you that you are silly AND amazing.
“Hey girl, hey” is confiding your fears of your big work meeting and someone pep-talking you off the ledge. “Hey girl, hey” is the half an ounce of cheer we might need in a morning that we don’t feel worthy of getting out of bed.
“Hey girl, hey” takes the confidence of one woman and transfers it to another woman in need.
“Hey girl, hey” is the true motto that confident women know and say before each workday. It’s the motto of imperfect women waking up to make a difference each day. It is the motto of knowing when you need your powerhouse support army to make it happen.
