I just finished watching Michelle Obama speak at the Democratic National Convention. She is so intelligent, graceful, and elegant. This lady carries herself so well that it seems like she is floating when she walks. Let’s not hate; this woman is bad! Watching Michelle Obama should make you feel a little uncomfortable. I know I feel like there is so much more I could be doing to inspire myself and others.
We may differ in our political perspectives, but there is one thing we can agree on; it is empowering to see an African American family with such integrity and compassion in the White house. We have been blessed with the opportunity to be a part of our nation’s history that all men and women can be proud of.
As women, we can connect with Mrs. Obama’s unwavering love for her children and family. Michelle Obama wasn’t born with a silver spoon; so just like many of us she is no stranger to hard work. We can be inspired by her unwillingness to give up during economic struggle and hardship. We can be encouraged by her determination to live a healthier lifestyle through nutrition and exercise.
Mrs. Obama constantly emphasizes the importance of education which can take us to new heights. She embodies what it means to be a strong black woman. While speaking at the national convention, Michelle Obama wanted everyone to know that her most important roles are Mother and Chief. She expressed that her children were her first priority. This still doesn’t hinder her from being a firm back bone for her husband, and assisting with his challenging tasks as President of the United States.
It brings tears to my eyes, watching this beautiful, tall, dark skinned woman wooing the nation with her undeniable love for her family and her country. Michelle Obama reminds us that it is possible for strong black women to be effective catalyst for change. Change we want to see in ourselves and others. Watching Mrs. Obama speak was heartwarming and inspiring especially for a woman of purpose.
