Look closer to home

As women we need to look for our role models closer to home. Women and girls looking up to filtered reality stars and artists that are more messed up than a hoarders home after an earthquake. 
Talk to nana, mama and Aunty. Ask them how, what, where and why. Learn who you are from your reflection in their eyes. 
Don’t snub their priceless knowledge for an Instagram feed. Eat up all they have to serve you. It’s what will keep you when you’re vulnerable, steady you when you’re confused and cover you when you feel exposed. It’s real, unfiltered, nurturing and pure.
