As women we live in a day and age where we have unlimited opportunities to reach our potential and achieve our goals – opportunities that our predecessors only dreamed about! So why is it that so many of us are feeling unsure of ourselves, insecure in the choices we have made? Is it because we are on the receiving end of so many contradictory messages? Be a career woman! Be a stay-at-home-mom! Focus on your job! Focus on your family! Look after others! Look after yourself! Stay young! Look young! Don’t get old! You are too old! In the midst of all these messages blaring out at us, the small, simple message gets lost: you are someone special, and no matter what you do, you have a contribution to make, a role to play. If you have only impacted one person for good, you have made a difference!
My name is Linda Hopkins. I am an author, and my first novel will be published this spring. I am also a mother, a daughter, a small business owner, a sister, a manager, a creator and a wife. A woman! My hope is that together we can learn how much, as women, we have to offer the people in the world around us. We can make a difference!
