“WHEN A WOMAN RISES UP IN HER GLORY, HER ENERGY IS MAGNETIC AND HER SENSE OF POSSIBILITY IS CONTAGIOUS".
“A queen is wise. She has earned her serenity, not having had it bestowed on her but having passer her tests. She has suffered and grown more beautiful because of it. She has proved she can hold her kingdom together. She has become its vision. She cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She rules with authentic power.”
Ain't I a woman too?
There is this this misconception that "Real women have curves", which I think is nothing short of a ploy to shame one type of body whilst raising up another.
You are not any less of a woman because your figure doesn't resemble a coke bottle. W
hy should I have curves in order to be seen as desirable and why should the lack of curves cause me to feel
as though I am a villain
. I will project positive energy and embrace myself, because that is my job, it is not anyones responsibility to do that. I will respect myself and hold myself in high regard, because why shouldn't I? Why should I dampen my light so you can feel comfortable, why should my ambitions and standards be lowered because they do not fit into your idea of me?
I am a lady, w
hether I fit your views or not. If by being myself I am fulfilling certain stereotypes, then so be it. If me choosing to be a housewife and cook and clean and cater to my mans needs means I am weak and under a male control, then you are sorry and mistaken and you are the weak one. If I choose a life without a husband or children, and focus on my career then I ought not to be looked down upon or felt sorry for. I am not sorry for my life and you shouldn't be either. I t
ake pride in being a lady, whether I am in the kitchen, in the office, or on a basketball court. Please understand that, you do not exhibit any less "true" beauty when you wear make up than when you don't. Put on make up if you want, don't put it on if you don't want to. Either way, none of this signifies your importance or how socially or economically aware you are.
I am a woman because I am a woman. I love being a woman and you should too. We are powerful beings and should not be restricted, we need fulfil our glory and strength as given to us by our God. Don't allow anyone to underestimate your intelligence. Walk with dignity and pride, assured in who you are, because who are you not to? What makes you think you are inferior because you are a woman? Who lied to you and told you that you have no worth? For what reason do you lower your standards for people that don't value nor deserve your time? If anything I ever say makes sense, let this be it; your beauty is worthless in the scale of eternity, but your spirit is all that counts. When your bones disintegrate into nothing, your spirit will remain, roaming in God's kingdom, should you know and follow him. The stereotypes that you allowed to plague you will not even be a memory, they will bow out of eternity.
Remember how insignificant peoples opinions are. Love you, regardless of these petty things because you are a woman too and in order to attain your personal best you have to recognise your worth.
