A dark cloud of sadness fell on South Africa as news broke of Mam’ Winnie Mandela’s passing.
A Mother to the Nation, stalwart and warrior are words that best describe the woman who fought against the injustices of the past.
A few of her famous quotes are listed here:
“I will not allow the selfless efforts of my husband and his friends to be abandoned,” she said after Nelson was imprisoned. “I will continue the struggle for a free and equal South Africa.”
“I no longer have the emotion of fear, there is no longer anything I can fear,” she said after being repeatedly sent to prison. “There is nothing the government has not done to me. There isn’t any pain I haven’t known.”
“They think because they have put my husband on an island that he will be forgotten,” Madikizela-Mandela said when her husband was sent to Robben Island, according to Business Insider South Africa. “They are wrong. The harder they try to silence him, the louder I will become.”
You can finally rest in peace Nomzamo Zanyiwe Winifred Madikizela-Mandela. You were a martyr and matriarch, token of freedom and leader in South Africa’s liberation. We will never forget your sacrifices for the country.
We ran a Womandla Vision Board mini workshop for young girls in Cape Town, last week. We’ve seen many celebrities create these, so we took the positive lesson to the test!
Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. According to the popular book The Secret, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”
What you focus on expands. Use words that appeal to you or images that jump at you. We set some music and allowed our hearts and minds to lead us into our future. The girls have committed to hanging their boards where they can see them, and will work hard towards what they have forecasted.
The purpose of a vision board is to bring everything on it to life. So put things that inspire and motivate you!
