A Real Women...
Does not measure her worth on the scale
Does not scold herself for enjoying chocolate
Takes time to enjoy the little things in life
Sets an example of confidence and self worth
Multi-tasks like a pro but realizes she can’t be everywhere at once and is ok with that.
Can entertain a house full of friends and family but also takes time for quietness and reflection
Knows that a little bit of makeup can help polish her look, but too much makeup hides her true beauty
Knows that quality time with family and friends need to be captured and remembered so she writes, takes pictures, or video records special occasions
Does not beat herself up over the size on her dress…she is fully aware that is just a number
Prays because she knows she is not invincible
Has a heart of gold and uses this to help others
Invokes passion in what she does
Thinks before she speaks but is not afraid to let her voice be heard
Stands up for what she believes, even if she is standing alone
Loves her curves and is proud of her body, no matter the shape or size
Is not influenced by the media’s standard of beauty
Knows that bashing someone else does not make her prettier, smarter, or a better person.
Has a strong faith which she uses to inspire those around her
Realizes that wrinkles and grey hairs are inevitable and embraces her age
Makes her house a home
Can empathize with others, a quality which makes her a distinctly unique leader
Knows when to keep fighting and when it is time to just let go
Is aware that she may slip up in all of the areas listed above, which is what makes her human. And she is at peace with that.
I wrote this little ditty in honor of all the strong and confident women that I have been blessed to know. Let’s take time to reflect on what true beauty really consists of! It’s so much more then outward appearances. Feel free to share what true beauty means to you...I'd love to hear your thoughts!
