A friend recently posted the below on Facebook. It’s so true. Not that men aren’t equally amazing. They are. I’ve never understood a couple of things. One: Why don’t women embrace being women. That means we aren’t men, probably shouldn’t be treated like them, are unique and how amazing is that? Two: Why don’t we support each other more? We’re all women, we all go through a list of the same issues, we’re all struggling in similar ways. Geez, band together and raise each other up.
10 Facts Every Woman Should Know:
1. Everyone has rolls when they bend over.
2. When someone tells you that you’re beautiful, believe them. They aren’t lying.
3. Sometimes we all wake up with breath that could kill a goat.
4. For every woman unhappy with her stretch marks is another woman who wishes she had them.
5. You should definitely have more confidence. And if you saw yourself the way others see you, you would.
6. Don’t look for a man to save you. Be able to save yourself.
7. It’s okay to not love every part of your body….but you should.
8. We all have that one friend who seems to have it all together. That woman with the seemingly perfect life. Well, you might be that woman to someone else.
9. You should be a priority. Not an option, a last resort, or a backup plan.
10. You’re a woman. That alone makes you pretty damn remarkable.
There are so many things about being a woman that I love. My curves, my sexuality, the fact that my body has created life for goodness sake. Life. Not only has it created life, it’s sustained it. I’m proud that – not only have I had breast augmentation (which I love) – I got it because it was the only thing about my body I couldn’t get back and I breastfed my kids for a total of 11 years. My body experienced 7 pregnancies and ten surgeries. I lost my uterus and my cervix to give life, I suffered miscarriages and loss. I was a stay at home Mommy for a decade. I cooked and cleaned and cuddled. I love being maternal. I love that I am compassionate and empathetic. I’m grateful that I can relate to how my kids feel and love them, but also let them go. Being a woman is powerful and sexy. It’s empowering and tender.
So, for all the women in my life – embrace yourselves! You are amazing!
