Looking at ourselves and at how we ‘insult’ the Oshun in us is probably one of the most hurting but at the same time one of the most important practices for us as women in business. For, is it not we, ourselves, talking the voices of those gods when we say that only hard work to the point of exhaustion is of value can lead us to succeed in our business – to create?
When we think we can create anything in our business and career while neglecting the value of our beauty, our love, our tenderness, our softness, our sexuality, sensuality and the bodily pleasurable feminine in ourselves … we are moving into a very dangerous direction ?
I feel it is our responsibility to not let it happen again. It is our responsibility to celebrate, give space to and live that love, that pleasure, that beauty in us.
