To be a woman is to be complex, extraordinary and ever beautiful. To be a woman is to be tough and sensitive and powerful and soft. To be a woman is to be a queen.
And yet, many women don’t know the power that resides within them. We live our lives apologetically, afraid to intimidate others with our light and our strength, diminishing ourselves.
Being a woman encompasses so many different elements that often womanhood is misconstrued and misunderstood. Womanhood is so much more than shoes and bags, boys and pink. It is more than bitterness and spite, than tight clothes and make-up. It is more than the pain. More than pity.
Being a woman is so much more.
It is being whoever you were created to be, living out your fullest potential. It is self-love. It is knowing your worth and understanding your value. It is loving others freely and giving of your gifts to somehow, in some way, no matter how minor, make this world a better place.
It is to be fierce and daring, sassy and bold, funny and complex.
A wise book says of a phenomenal woman, “She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.”
My dream is for every woman to know her value, to celebrate it and to share that with others. My dream is for every girl to never be broken by when another eradicates her value.
Not enough women know. Not enough women realise who they are. Wipe the dust off of your crowns, queens.
Wear your strength well.
