Did you know that today was Sadie Hawkins day?
I feel as if there is a day for everything! If you don’t know what Sadie Hawkins is, it’s usually brought up when discussing a dance…Sadie Hawkins dance. A Sadie Hawkins dance is a dance where the girls ask the guys to go with them instead of the opposite, which is considered “the norm”.
In a world where men love to take control and let their masculinity and their pride get in the way, it can be easy to forget that we hold the cards. There are so many things that we can do that men will never even understand. This goes without saying, but clearly birth is the main thing. There are women who give birth and then pop back up like they just did something simple. Those are the badass women that you don’t want to mess with!
Although some men like to label us as just our bodies, we are so much more. But remember also, your body is a blessing and you have the power. Women don’t need to wait for a guy to call us, for a message to be sent first, or for it to be a special day just to ask the guy for a date.
Ladies, this is your reminder that you’re in charge! Women are holding places in office, have sent astronauts into space, and are inventing things more than ever. We are placing ourselves into spaces that men have dominated and that’s WITHOUT permission.
Here’s your reminder to make everyday Sadie Hawkins day!

This is a great post! Too often our society leaves women feeling as though they are the ‘weaker’ gender as if being female means we’re not quite as strong and powerful as our male counterparts. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Thank you for the reminder!
Exactly! We are taking over whether men want us to or not. I’m glad I could help bring a reminder ♥
