In case you needed a reminder today–women are incredible.
Sometimes I forget to be in awe of my body and what its womanliness is capable of. I forget to remember that the objectification of my body is a total myth, and I start to sometimes hate it again and resent it for the genetic makeup hand I wasn’t so stoked to be dealt.
But then I remember that being a woman means the ability to create human life in that crazy oven of ours. And THAT. That is preeeeeety damn awesome. In case you forgot.
I was reminded the other week when a really stellar friend of mine did just that. And while I always knew how powerful a woman’s body is, it was a nice reminder to see perfect baby Theo, with 10 tiny toes and fingers and a perfect nose.
Love your body today. Rather than dwell on whatever standards du jour it doesn’t meet up to today, think instead about what it can do. Like create a damn life.
Being a woman is cool. Embrace it today.
