When you were a little girl, did you give any thought to what it meant to be a girl, and then grow into a woman? Did you automatically think that pink is what you associated with girly-ness? Being a mother, a wife, wearing high heels, looking “sexy,” wearing makeup, having long hair, big boobs, are these all things you considered to make you feminine make you a woman? While many of these things do indeed make a woman a woman, there is more beneath the surface that has been largely overlooked and widely ignored for decades, if not hundreds of years.
We have been presented a very narrow view of what femininity and masculinity are, and that is generally what we see repeated daily in television, movies, magazines, the Internet, and porn. I think the world would be so different if we never stopped asking “why?” Everyone would think more deeply and act more intentionally. It is time to bring back the “why?” Why do I stick a tampon up my vagina? Why am I made to feel weird about a natural body process? Why are women told to lie on their backs to give birth? Why do you want to be a parent? Why? Why? Why? Start asking questions about what feminine is to you, and then make space in your heart and mind for the answers. You may be surprised by what you find out!
1975 was designated as 'International Women's Year' by the United Nations. Women's organisations and governments around the world have also observed IWD annually on 8 March by holding large-scale events that honour women's advancement and while diligently reminding of the continued vigilance and action required to ensure that women's equality is gained and maintained in all aspects of life. -- InternationalWomensDay.com
Happy International Women's Day!
Do something special for your inner and outer feminine today! Take some time this month- Women's History Month- to honor the women in your life, including yourself :)
In the last hundred plus years, we have accomplished so much and have lots to be thankful for. But the fight is hardly over and equality is still far off in the distance.
Everyday, we fight the war on resistance, whether its in our own heart or in a situation where the feminine is outwardly disrespected. It happens sometimes when we don't even realize it. As we make our daily choices, as we interact with people, as we walk down the street.
The resistance we encounter from others and the resistance we find in our own mind is not much different, it just appears as such because we have someone inflicting it or not.
Resistance is slow death. It keeps you up at night and then it makes you sleep through that thing you were supposed to do. Resistance doesn't give a shit about you, it wants to see you fail. Resistance is, I'll do it tomorrow... except tomorrow never comes.
Are you walking around inflicting resistance upon yourself? Or do you allow others to do it for you?
We resist love, we resist hate. We resist abundance and fun. We resist because we persist that whatever has to be done must not be fun. Resistance never sleeps and never dies, it just lives on, renewed each day by our distaste for it's existence.
Where in your life are you resisting right now? How do you resist your purpose, your femininity, your fun?
What would happen if you let go, and gave up the resistance?
Where would you be and who would you be if you let it go?
