SOME WOMEN

Some women won’t garden.

Some women won’t cook.

Some women won’t drive.

Some women won’t bake.

Some women won’t write.

Some women won’t teach their children well.

Some women won’t read.

Some women won’t study.

Some women won’t grow food.

Some women won’t go without.

Some women won’t cut their own hair.

Some women won’t tend their own nails.

Some women won’t save money.

Some women won’t create systems.

Some women won’t act sustainably.

Some women won’t lead situations out of calamity.

Some women won’t bring order where chaos was.

Some women won’t face their own demons.

Some women won’t confront negativity.

Some women won’t choose integrity over all else.

Some women won’t address and break addictions.

Some women won’t take wise advice.

Some women won’t continually learn and grow.

Some women won’t gossip and talk about others.

Some women won’t align themselves with mediocrity.

Some women won’t bow down to bullying.

Some women won’t accept hierarchical narrow-minded autocracy.

Some women won’t sit back and watch while others bleed.

Some women won’t ignore what is toxic in society.

Some women won’t tolerate unfairness or injustice in any form.

Some women won’t brush over lies, whether white or blatant.

Some women won’t give up.

Some women won’t lie to cover another’s disobedience.

Some women won’t go without what will be for their selfish gain alone.

Some women won’t walk away when there is work to be done.

Some women won’t allow those they love to suffer injustice.

Some women won’t act outside what is for the common good.

Some women won’t make a mega fest of speaking about others, focusing energy on other people’s lives without first examining their own.

Some women won’t take for themselves the resources that ‘belong to’ the group.

Some women won’t mindlessly take for themselves the top ranking position without giving abundantly in return.

Some women won’t make compost.

Some women won’t save time, energy and resources.

Some women won’t educate themselves on the meaning and truth of sustainability.

Some women won’t be loyal.

Some women won’t refuse to break covenant.

Some women won’t continually seek ways to improve.

Some women won’t go through the process from coal to diamond.

Some women will not move an inch beyond their comfort zone.

Some women won’t settle for mediocrity in any area of life.

Some women …

Some women will …
While some women won’t.

Some women won’t settle for anything less than love, authenticity, awareness, excellence, wisdom and growth.
