The Power of Being a Woman
The Evolution of Female
The fearless females of the Women's Suffrage.
The feminist movement.
She-Ras speaking out against domestic violence, equality for ALL, and human trafficking.
Warrior Princesses running marathons and raising awareness.
Women are phenomenal.
Women take on roles as mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend all while holding it down at the workplace.
Women fight against cancer, take care of aging parents, and volunteer at the local shelter.
We do it all in heels and flipflops (the cute ones with the little rhinestones) and knock it out the park.
Women are redefining "beauty" and "bossy".
We are leaning forward and sitting up. We put on our makeup (at the stoplight to save time). We run toward the day's tasks. Whether in the 30s, 60s, or the new millennium, what an honor it is to be "she".
The Upside of Emotional
Boys are taught that it's not okay to show emotion.
They are denied the right to express their emotions: sadness, joy, happiness, fear, anger, ecstasy...well, maybe not so much the last one.
The female gender has no problem in this area.
We can look at a beautiful bouquet or take take a sip of that delicious morning drink.
Or bite into our favorite chocolaty dessert and let our emotions transport us into the full pleasure of the experience.
We can cry over a news report or a tender moment captured in a TV ad.
We can look at our girlfriends giving fierce swag and say, "Girl, you look good!"
We can hear the latest hit radio play at our local coffee shop or the club, and declare, "That's my song!".
Some of us may even dance in our bar stool to the rhythm without fear of judgement.
We can look at our man's face and know what's just below the surface.
We can use "the voice" to speak just the right words to make him feel like he can conquer the world and drag it home to us...because we are "she".
Womb To Grow
What is better about being a woman than being a nurturer?
We are a teachers, a doctors and nurses. We are mothers to your own little bundles of giggles.
Nurturing a child with our God-given instinct brings a joy that is undefinable.
We get goo-goo over a chubby little toothless smile. I watch little girls melt when they meet my little boy.
We are nurturers by nature. We protect and nurture the sacred innocence of children.
Our protective nature spiked by motherhood causes us to be keenly aware of how dangerous the world is for our children.
It also causes us to rediscover wonderment through their eyes.
Being hard-wired to nurture means being first choice to kiss the boo-boos and make them all better.
We sing lullabies. We buy the first bra and heels. We are the loudest, most obnoxious cheerleaders ever.
I'm personally looking forward to scaring girls away from my son with my crazy.
And of course we make it okay to cuddle, even after puberty.
We are extraordinarily gifted to handle all that life places in our laps with grace, love, and strength. We are "she".
- When women begin to truly embrace and love themselves, they will realize the sanctity of the female gender and elevate the next generation.
