Strong Women

On International Women’s Day (March 8), the internet was flooded with images and sayings talking about strong women.

These statements about being strong are powerful, but I wonder if we unintentionally set up the thought that only certain paths, certain actions, or certain women, are strong. We see many different women come through the WomanSpace doors. They are all shapes, sizes, colors, lifestyles, religions, ages, and so on. Do you know the one thing they all share in common? Strength. In fact, every single woman I’ve ever met has been strong! Strength isn’t always about making a bold choice or doing something everyone can see.

 

Strong Is…

Surviving
Believing
Hoping
Loving
Thriving
Compromising
Uncompromising
Resisting
Staying
Leaving
Rising
Helping
Asking
Lifting

you need not choose only one
you need not choose all
strong is being exactly what you need
when you need

you are strong

 

The next time you waiver, feel “less than”, or weak, please remember these words. Remember that you are loved, that you are worthy, and that you have a place…a community…ready to accept you with open arms.
