Share Article

As life seems to become more complicated, the job of a woman isnÂ?t getting any easier. Abuse survivor Becky Due, author of Â?The GentlemenÂ?s Club,Â? shows how women can help each other tap into their personal power.

If it seems like your job of being a woman gets more difficult every day, you are not alone. With a full-time job, kids, and even parents to take care of, few women have enough energy at the end of the day to take five minutes for themselves. Women can, however, find strength in a surprising source. Each other.

“Life’s hassles can be tough competitors when we face them alone,” says Becky Due, author of The Gentlemen’s Club: A Story for All Women (Due Publications, http://www.CommitToYourself.com). “However, when working together, when ‘embracing our estrogen,’ we can be the spirited, balanced beings that we were before life started beating us down.”

Like Angie, the lead character in her novel, Due was molested when she was eleven years old. Through The Gentlemen’s Club: A Story for All Women, Due aims to help women understand the power they possess to change the circumstances of their lives.

Keep life from beating you down by following these five tips from Due’s website http://www.CommitToYourself.com:

1. Embrace Your Estrogen! Do something with a strong female friend that you admire: lunch, golf, or shopping. Get out with the girls!

2. Take a class. Whether it is a college or community class it doesn’t matter. Enroll in something that interests you.

3. Exercise! You hear it so often because it is true. There’s nothing like the exhilaration of exercise. Put some upbeat music to your ears and walk. If you mix your own music, use songs like “I Will Survive,” “I Feel Like a Woman,” or “She’s a Brick House.”

4. Pamper you and your house. If you have clutter in your house, you have clutter in your life. Dedicate one day each week to conquering clutter. And don’t forget to pamper you. Start at your head and work your way down. Deep condition your hair, give yourself a facial, manicure, and pedicure using lots of lotion.

According to Due, a better life can only start with you. Commit to following even one of the above tips. You’ll find that your world gets a little less “crazy.”
