Age is such a beautiful thing

dreamstime_s_45817549With the coming of age, you get to look at certain issues with a certain level of maturity and objectivity. Situations that would have me falling apart a few years ago are now water off a duck’s back.

One of those issues is how we as women don’t want to see each other flourish. I’ve been a victim to this numerous times, especially from my black sisters. A typical example is this past Sunday, where we saw the beautiful and talented Lucia voted out of the competition. Now the irony in this situation is the fact that the public gets to decide on who gets to stay and who goes home.  Yet for some odd reason my name was then linked to her sad departure just because I was selected to mentor her for the COMING week, however the voting was based on the PREVIOUS week’s performance. If we are really looking for someone to blame, then we should look no further than the next mirror because we all had the choice to vote for her and we didn’t.

Similarly now when America, particularly some American women chose to vote for a misogynist, racist man who publicly endorsed sexually assaulting women over a women who is more than qualified and capable to hold that office.

So many of us preach women empowerment and are self-proclaimed feminists, however when it comes to implementing these principles we claim to live by, it becomes very selective. Instead of seizing an opportunity to empower a fellow sister when she needs it most, we would much rather jump onto the bashing train aka “Pull Her Down” syndrome.

Then again as I’ve mentioned all this comes with age and I just pray that I will be alive to see the day when us as women can uplift and support each other unconditionally, but for now I would like to wish a Happy Birthday not only to me but to everyone that has supported Kelly Khumalo all these years. 😉

Love

Signed

    Kelly I am a 15 year old girl who lives in Swaziland and I have been watching u in the limelight with the different events taking place and different seasons you have passed in your life.. You have been doing nothing but trying to live your dream.. u have done so many things in this society trying to prove your innocence but no one listened all they were doing was judging,mocking and hurting, they were doing this thinking that it would bring u down but what they don’t know is that they were making u stronger and at the same time giving me more reason to love u.. You have shown me the importance of being urself and not letting others try to change u.. # Love and will always love u..Currently listening to “My Truth” but my favourite song is “What if”
