I’m surrounded by some bad women. “Bad” meaning good. Badder than the lyrics to LL Cool J’s song, “I’m Bad” or Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” forward leaning dance move. “You know I’m bad. I’m bad. You know it. Shum-on.”
My entourage of bad women provides me with professional, emotional, and spiritual advice on a daily basis. My BFF’s match Urban Dictionary’s definition of “Bad Ass.” What makes them so bad is that they keep it real, hold my hand through tough times, and make me feel like I’m the “baddest” of them all.
Around my girls, I’m lifted higher than a flyer on top of a vertical cheerleading pyramid; suspended in mid-air not afraid to fall. It’s during both difficult and glorious times in your life that you realize the importance of being around people who have your back 100%.
I challenge you to surround yourself with some “bad women.” Kick those women that weigh you down emotionally and physically to the curb. Tell them you don’t need their extra baggage in your life. Circle yourself around women that make you shine. Positioning yourself with great women will only lead you to the top, and push you to greatness.
