Silencing Your Inner Critic

Black empowering women. Women who not only paved pathways but have also lit the road for others like you and me to follow.

Have you ever caught yourself in a moment of doubt, only to shake it off and come back swinging, just like Serena at her best? You’ve shown you’ve got the guts, time after time. But listen, this month isn’t just about taking a walk down memory lane and reminiscing about the yesteryears, it is also to kindle the fire within us that drives our future.

This blog is also to honor the extraordinary and empowering women who not only paved pathways but have also lit the road for others like you and me to follow. And in this celebrated list of luminaries, black empowering women shine with an incandescence that is as compelling as it is inspirational.

In this blog Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, and Serena Williams do not just embody black women empowerment and excellence but are mirrors to empowering black women legacies across all races and nations.


Oprah Winfrey, a name synonymous with undeniable influence. She is a woman who turned her wounds into wisdom and her pain into power. Despite countless setbacks, Oprah’s conviction never wavered. She believed in her vision, in her worth, and in her message, leading her to build an empire that changes lives every day. 

Her journey teaches us that hardships are but stepping stones to greatness, that our voices, filled with truth and purpose, can echo beyond the walls of our doubts and fears.


Then there’s Michelle Obama, a living testament to grace and intelligence. Every time she steps out, she exudes a confidence that comes from knowing who she is and what she stands for. She has woven empowerment into the fabric of her initiatives, forever altering the landscape of women’s roles. She speaks, and we listen—not just to hear, but to understand and to implement. 

Can you imagine the indomitable courage it took to take that spotlight and turn it into a torch, lighting the way for education, health, and wellness for all women?


And how can we speak of power and empowering women without giving accolades to Serena Williams? A dynamo on the tennis courts, her narrative is one of sheer grit and unyielded determination. Serena’s serves and volleys draw parallels with the everyday battles women face. Each point she scores whispers to us a silent yet resounding mantra: “Never give up.” 

Remember when she faced down match point at the 2003 Australian Open? With the odds stacked against her, she summoned strength from within, strength that said, “I am not done.” She took a deep breath, flashed that champion’s grin, and delivered shots that will be remembered for ages. That’s boldness, my friend, that’s tenacity. It’s the same fire that I see flickering within you. 


Now, let me ask you, when you’re up against it, when the world whispers that you can’t, will you channel your inner Serena and roar back with a resounding, “Watch me”? Will you summon your inner Oprah and show the world your strength? Will you exude Michelle’s confidence that comes from knowing your value and worth?

It’s about stepping up to the plate. Think about it: the strength we admire in Oprah, the self-worth we see in Michelle, and that never-quit spirit we love in Serena—aren’t those fires burning inside you, too? 

Think about every mountain you’ve ever climbed, every hurdle you’ve conquered. Isn’t it true that anything worth doing is worth doing with all your might, every fiber of your being tight with focus and bursting with drive? That’s what it’s all about—hanging onto your dream even when the skies get dark.

And what about when others doubt you? That’s when you’ve got to listen to the most important voice of all—your own. Push harder, reach further, dream bigger. Why? Because what you do, what you say, and how you rise matters.


Now, I’m tossing the ball in your court. How are you going to take that spark from these powerhouse women and turn it into your very own blazing torch? Are you ready to let these bold and empowering women’s light shine a path for your own journey, through the ups and downs?

This month, let’s not just talk the talk, let’s walk that walk. Let’s be fearless in our goals, unwavering in the face of a challenge, and take strides that resonate with the legacies of those awe-inspiring and empowering women who paved the way.

So keep that flame kindled my friend, keep those footsteps marching. The world is ready to see your fire.
