Helping Others

We as women, are naturally nurturers. 

As a species, we are made to have children and give of ourselves, sometimes at an early age. We continue to grow and with us, so does our need to care for others. We care for our husbands or significant other, elderly parents, and other family members. We even look for jobs nurturing complete strangers. We tend to think that our lives are not whole unless we do so. This is not necessarily true. While running around as if we are superwomen, the one thing that we forget to do is to care for ourselves.  Remember ladies, while we listen and care for others, we must also ‘step outside’ of our self and realize that if we don’t understand that ‘WE’ are #1, then the others we care for, will miss us.  
Life has many meanings and we must be on the up and up, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We can achieve this by helping others as well as helping ourselves.

What do you do for others that you find is good for you?

National Women and Girls HIV/ AIDS Awareness Day!

March 10th

Happy International Women’s Herstory Month! I am sure many of you know that this month is dedicated to commemorate all the accomplishments women have made and the initiatives we’ll continue to build!

With this in mind, it’s also important to note that today is the 11th Annual National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day! This year’s theme is ‘The Best Defense Is a Good Offense’ which seeks to ensure that women and girls have the proper information to make the best decisions about safer sex.

Whether you’re in a relationship, actively dating or having casual sex with other people, for both you and your partner’s health, you should take safe steps to prevent HIV transmission by:

1. Using a female or male condom during anal or vaginal intercourse
2. Being monogamous (having only one partner)
3. Abstaining from drugs and alcohol (which affects your judgment and increases chance of transmission)
4. Getting an HIV test
5. Consider the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) or post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to reduce the risk of HIV infection
