What I am about to say some people may not like. But guess what? I am going to say it anyway. There are a lot of men in positions of power who are “unicorns”. Now, I know it may be hard for you to make the correlation so let me help you out. Unicorns, are mythical, mystical, magical creatures that people “oohh and ahh” over. They look great and have a certain aura about them that people are drawn to. Just looking at them one would assume that their farts emit a rainbow of wonder also known as Skittles. Unicorns look good and smell good. But the real question is what do they really do? Let me answer this question….NOTHING!
Shocker huh? We all know of men in power who get all the glory, but really can’t tell you any of the story. And the reason for this is simple. Unicorns are known for keeping GREAT people around them who make them look good. And the GREAT people are usually women. See, a lot of people like to dress the unicorns up and call them visionaries. However, just like leggings; one size does not fit all. It doesn’t matter if it’s the boardroom, the pulpit or the bedroom. Women are known for holding it down behind the scenes for these unicorns. Without getting any of the glory and knowing the entire story.
There used to be a song on the television show The Great Space Coasters called If Wishes Were Horses. The chorus simply stated “if wishes were horses, then everyone would ride”. I say “if wishes were unicorns, nothing would get done.”
Now, let me me be clear. This is NOT a male-bashing, throw the baby out with the bath water observation. There are some great men in powerful positions and I am praying one day that God sends me one. But, God has blessed me with the gift of discernment so it doesn’t take me long to identify a unicorn when it’s in my presence. I am “The Unicorn Tamer”. I have had many years of experience being in spaces where many unicorns live, breath and breed. It is my duty to share my secrets to taming the unicorns in our lives.
A portion of this blog is an excerpt from my upcoming book: How To Tame A Unicorn: A Woman’s Guide To Dealing with Men In Power. (2016)
Watch out for the rainbow-coated farts. Then you will know a unicorn is in your midst.
Thanks for coming out, God Bless and Goodnight.
