When We Fall, We Get Back on the Horse!
I always say I’ve had to make fear and failure my best friends. Today is one of those days that I have to practice what I preach. It’s so hard to see the person who was about to be the first woman President of the United States and break the glass ceiling for all of us, actually lose the election. As a Latina and a woman, it hurts me for another woman and it reminds me of the difficulty of all our journeys, and how painful it is to continually fall, mourn and get back on the horse over and over again. Yet I am older and wiser, so I know that this is the answer: as women, and especially women of color, we have to stay the course! It’s becoming clearer every day that no one is coming to save us—there is no Prince Charming in any part of our life, and we have everything we need to get it done for ourselves.
On the bright side, let’s congratulate former Nevada Attorney General, Catherine Cortez Masto, who has been elected the first Latina in the U.S. Senate. The Democratic candidate received 49 percent of the vote, and her opponent, Republican congressman Joe Heck got 44 percent. We look forward to working with her to advance legislation that will increase opportunities for Latinos and Latinas everywhere.
We cannot let anything give us an excuse to feel victimized and stop now. We must keep moving toward our financial independence, which buys us our freedom and our options. I know that around the corner from our greatest failures are our greatest successes, so we simply cannot give up!
They say success is the best revenge and it’s true; and it all begins by learning, growing and hunting down opportunities that exist for all of us. Becoming self-made is our answer and our new ticking clock.
We have to take this moment to grow by learning and educating ourselves.
