Women and Adversity: 2022

It’s been a tough two years since the pandemic spread around the world. Word is that 2022 will see a decline in infections and deaths from the virus. The hope is that it disintegrates now, never to infect anyone ever again. If only…

People are not stymied by the virus but live their lives as best as they can.  I will continue writing my blog, which I have done for seven years featuring women who face adversity and have overcome it. There are thousands of them around the world who use their skills and are happier because of it. My aim is to encourage women to move forward despite adversity, and in the process, will achieve their goals.

Adversity is part of life, but we can’t be discouraged by it. We must continue to pursue our life’s dreams, as long as they are realistic. I can dream of having a best-selling book since I’m a writer. For me to dream of being a world-renowned singer when I’ve never sung in any group, or be a heart surgeon when I have no interest in medicine or be a CPA when numbers confuse me is totally unrealistic.

Christiane Amanpour, renowned journalist; Margaret Thatcher, former prime minister of the United Kingdom, and Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube are women who have overcome adversity and have become world renowned for their accomplishments. They are examples of moving forward and using their skills. I will write about them this year, and I will continue to highlight women I feature in my 2020 ebooks: Honoring 23 Black Women, Recognizing 23 Notable Mothers, and Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists. Some are historical figures while others are living their dreams or pursuing their dreams.

Yes, this blog is meant to encourage women to overcome what is standing in their way so they can achieve their dreams. Enjoy reading about successful women in this blog during 2022.
