Self-Made Woman

"She's a self-made woman."

That is how an amazing woman was described to me the other day.

I loved it.  I felt immediate respect for her.

I think being self-made indicates that someone has taken a conscious interest in how they turn out.

They are not dependent on someone else to come save them or deliver them into success.

They aren't waiting for coat-tails to ride.

It's void of entitlement or privilege.

Hard work. Self awareness. And a belief in herself.

I think so many times in our culture we wait for our big break.

Instead of making it.

Making ourselves.

The truth is: We are all self-made.

The question is: What are we making?
