Being a woman is a hard yet fulfilling job, but someone has to do it right? Right! I wouldn’t pick to take the place of our male counterparts in any way, shape, form or fashion, although I’m sure there could be some benefits. However, the benefits wouldn’t outweigh the pleasure I find in being a woman. We are so multi-faceted, intelligent, beautiful, nurturing, gifted, thoughtful, and the list goes on and on.
With every year that passes, I embrace my femininity more and more. We truly make the world go round and when we can take the time to recognize the beauty in one another, we become even more powerful.
Here are my top 11 reasons that I enjoy being a woman:
1. We Are Born Queens
Every woman comes into the world as a princess with the promise of being a queen. It doesn’t matter our background or circumstances, we are the only ones who can choose to take off our crowns. To be royalty by nature gives me a sense of pride and joy that I can’t really explain. All I know is I am a queen and I will forever rock my crown.
2. We Are Intuitive
There is nothing like a woman’s intuition. When our inner spirit speaks out, it is loud and clear even when in the form of a subtle nudging. It tells us to go left instead of right when to investigate situations, when to let things slide, and when to simply enjoy life. Our intuition helps us know we aren’t crazy, we are just supernatural.
3. We Are Powerful
Women possess the power to rule life with an iron fist and compassionate heart. Our power lies in the softer parts of our very essence. It is asserted with wisdom and tact and we are clothed in its right to rule our own lives while positively impacting the world around us. We don’t have to force our hand we simply provide the best solutions at the right moments. Even when in the minority we serve as a majority and our voice is heard loud and clear.
4. We Are A Life Center
Now, I have not yet had the privilege of being a mother, but knowing that I have the ability to bring forth new life simply overtakes me when I think about it. Since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a mother. To know that a tiny human is growing inside of you and your body is equipped to give it everything it needs to grow into a healthy baby boy or girl is the magnificence of God. I’ve never questioned if God was real, but if I had, this one thing alone would give me an emphatic yes. The eternal connection that a child has to its mother is no question. The fruit of our wombs has populated the entire earth. We are goddesses of life and light.
5. We Are the Definition of Beauty
When the definition of beauty was first written, I know women were the first thought behind its creation. The quintessence of who we are on the inside and how it flows so eloquently with our outside appearance captures beauty. We come in all shapes, sizes, and skin tones. Our hair varies in texture just like our eyes in color and shape. Our silhouettes range from thin to curvaceous, but no matter what, beauty is found. Our spirits radiate light and our souls emulate depth. If beauty were defined in one word. It would be WOMAN.
6. We Are Resilient
To be seen as such fragile beings, our bounce back is phenomenal. Many of us have endured tragic blows in life from heartbreak to abuse to rape, yet we manage to find our way to restoration and wholeness. We hide our pain to help others in efforts to heal ourselves. We are forgiving and long to lend a second chance even beyond our better judgment. Even when we are let down over and over again, we manage to still get back up again, dust ourselves off, and try yet again. Our resiliency builds our courage and equips us with new levels of strength that we did not have before. We bare the weight of the world while carrying those around us, so don’t call it a comeback, we’ve been doing this for years.
7. We Are Intelligent
The intellect of a woman develops at a rate that is remarkable. When we dive into a journey of gaining knowledge, we far exceed our own expectations. We understand that knowledge is only power if it is applied properly and that knowing it all will never be possible. Expansion and growth are what we continually seek as we navigate this thing called life. When one encounters a woman who is an intellectual or might I even say sapiosexual, he or she understands that conversation must have substance and depth. However, we do enjoy the mindless banter and comedic conversation because after all, we are smart enough to know that balance is necessary.
8. We Are Fashionable
Let’s face it. As women, we just have way more options in clothing than men have; therefore, exploring our creativity and reinventing ourselves is but a notion. I personally love a good shoe and handbag. I will throw on a fedora and go from sassy chic to eclectic and unique! Lol! One thing women can never have too much of is clothing. I mean, technically we can, which is why most of us donate to the Goodwill or Salvation Army at least twice a year, but in retrospect, we always need clothes and shoes and jewelry and bags. Frankly, I love being fashionable because it’s just fun. Compliments are nice, but to know you look good makes you feel good and I don’t know about y’all, but I love to feel good.
9. We Are Goal Getters
Show me a woman and I will show you someone who has goals. Now, I understand that every woman does not achieve her goals for whatever reason, but I dare say I have yet to meet a woman that at one point in time or another didn’t have any. We aim high and dream higher, even the sky is no match for our desires. We are truly the epitome of go big or go home. I personally like to say, if you can’t roll with the big dogs, then stay on the porch. Just think, goal setting is a part of what we do every day, from routine task to groundbreaking projects. We just have what it takes to be accomplished.
10. We Are Innovators
Ladies, we are natural born creators, but we don’t merely create, we innovate. We solve the problems of the world by developing eye-opening solutions from our workplaces to our very own companies. We strategize and empathize all while birthing masterpieces. Masterminding is our specialty and we do it with such grace and eloquence. We are writers, activist, doctors, lawyers, fashion designers, publishers, singers, beauty professionals, entrepreneurs, and the list goes on. We are women, hear us roar and see us look fierce while we do it.
11. We Are Leaders
“The future is female!” We see more and more how the women in our society are stepping up to the plate. The political presence is overwhelming and our voices are becoming undeniable as we have proclaimed that we will no longer be silenced. From filmmaking to framing the world with a brighter outlook, we are creating a canvas painted with power. As freethinkers and conservatives, we welcome the help of all as long as it is inclusive. Long gone are the days of our mere shadows in the background although we still work miracles behind the scenes. We are the leaders and we are here to make an impact.
Honestly, I could list a million reasons why I love being a woman, but these are just a few.
Until next time lovies…be sure to always love being you!
