Dear Ladies

Inspiration > Keep Going

Fear will never stand up and sadness will only dim your light. Step out of the darkness and stand resilient.

Now, is the time, your inner strength will be tested. For it is in our weakest times, you are your strongest.

By: Candice Kumai

Dear Ladies,

As we experience change & emotions we can’t put into words. I urge us to all do the one thing we can do.

We can support one another, we can uplift, we can be radiant.

There is a term in Japanese called “gaman”我慢, it refers to “endurance with great resilience”. For in this time, let us find our gaman. We have seen the Japanese endure and come out resilient in times of despair. Look to the light.

Let us find our deepest strength… strength so bright, that you become the light others wish to seek. Gaman,我慢.

I stand tall with you, I come from many walks of life, I come from diversity. I have immigrant parents & parents of different religion.

I have cried my deepest tears of sadness. I have also been afraid.
But sadness, nor fear will create change.

Fear will never stand up and sadness will only dim your light. Step out of the darkness and stand resilient.

Let us be together, let us stay resilient, and shine your bright light.

Now, is the time, your inner strength will be tested. For it is in our weakest times, you are your strongest.

I promise to keep my strength and my endurance up for each of you.

Please find one another, and uplift. I am with you. For the future is bright and the future is female.

My story was never about wanting to be an influencer. I'm a writer, a trained chef, I got into this game a while before social was ever a thing.
