February is Black History Month, so let’s kick off this week with some inspiration from Harriet Tubman. We have all had our moments of doubt, moments of feeling not quite good enough, and moments where we consider giving up. This is human nature. But the key is to not entertain these thoughts. When hit with these thoughts, we need to push them away and remember the words of Harriet Tubman,
“Always remember, you have the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Aren’t these great words to teach our children as well. For they too can have their moments as life challenges them. Learning of their strength and patience now is something they can carry with them through adulthood.
These words are not just inspirational for their encouragement, they are inspirational because of the strong woman who spoke them. Harriet Tubman was born a slave, escaped and went on to help other slaves escape through the Underground Railroad. She was an activist, a guerilla operative for the Union during the Civil War, and acted as nurse. Read an overview of all of her accomplishments at Women’sHistory.org
