Today is only the second time ever that we’ve featured a Fabulous Friday Fellow…but when I read the open letter to all women that Kute Blackson shared earlier this year, I wanted to make sure that every woman I know (and even those I don’t) had the opportunity to read it too.
I normally share the reasons why someone is featured as a Fabulous Friday Female or Fellow…but this week I don’t need to.
No, I just need to share Kute’s words…and you’ll soon understand why…
So here it is…Kute Blackson’s message to women everywhere. Read his words, allow yourself to receive them, allow yourself to absorb them, allow yourself to feel them with every fiber of your being:
You are priceless.
In our culture today, the real value of the feminine has been far undervalued and under-appreciated.
We tend to value things that we can touch, see, or understand with our logical mind.
But the real essence of who you are as woman is beyond form, dancing in the unseen, intangible realms.
The magic of the feminine is your mystery.
As a woman, one of your gifts is your profound intuition. You sense, see, and feel things beyond the physical. You know things way in advance. People may call you crazy, unreasonable, even unrealistic, but know that nothing revolutionary was created by dreaming small and buying into limitations.
We need your feminine gifts now on this planet more than ever in human history. We need your vision and your multidimensional sensitivity.
You as a woman have that magical ability to breathe life into something where there was nothing and give it form.
There is a reason that when you love, you light up a room.
There is a reason that when you give yourself to your man and support him with your heart’s devotion, his entire life transforms and even his income increases.
Your value is not in how you look, how much you weigh, how nice your skin is, whether you have no wrinkles or cellulite. Just you being an openhearted, radiant, blessing force of love…you are the gift in itself.
Just you allowing your soul-shine to smile upon all those you come in contact with is grace.
So, never sell your heart, body, or soul for love. The love you will get this way isn’t real.
Stay true to who you are and your inner knowing. This is one of the greatest gifts you can give us as men: Your authentic heart’s offering. If you aren’t you because you want us to love you, then we don’t really have YOU anyways.
You being fully self-expressed as the feminine is the gift.
There is nothing you need to DO and nothing you need to prove. I know we live in a culture where doing is worshiped, but know that just your presence is everything.
As a woman, you are a profound alchemical portal of transformation for us men. You are a Universe of infinite wonder where all of life exists.
Do you really know the power you have in the depth of your heart to move universes with simply the blink of an eye or a smile?
Do you really know the power you have to resurrect a life and give hope just with your compassion and care?
Do you really know the power you have to shape the future of humanity with the way you love a child?
Do you really know the power you have to inspire, so much so that a man built the Taj Mahal for his wife, who was dead!
Out of you, we are all birthed. For every human being alive, you were our first home for nine months. Out of you, we were literally formed and came into this world. Without you, we wouldn’t be.
And with you, we are more alive.
With you, I feel like I can touch the skies.
With you, there is nothing I cannot do.
I see you.
I honor you.
I love you.

So today I would like you to join me in honouring and celebrating Kute and his words to women everywhere. I hope that you allow the message he is sharing to resonate through every cell in your body, allow it to open your heart, and allow it to feed your soul. Know that what he is saying is authentic, honest truth, and meant for you.
As you know, I would love to acknowledge, honour and celebrate the women and men who have inspired you as well. So if there is someone that you believe should feature as a Fabulous Friday Female (or Fellow!), then send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with 3 simple details:
- Who is your Fabulous Friday Female / Fellow? (Her / his name and location in the world)
- Why is she / he a Fabulous Friday Female / Fellow to YOU? (How do you know her / him? What does she / he do? In what way is she / he inspiring?)
- A photo or link to a picture of her / him online (if there is a reason that you would prefer not to include a photo, just let me know)
So help me to share with all of our lovely ladies the real women and men who inspire YOU. …and remember, as always, to Stay Fabulous too!
