This one is from the heart…
Sometimes we forget whom we are, in the hard times, the seasons of pain or bursts of bitterness we cry out desperate for the answers or forgiveness.
We feel as if there is something wrong with us when we cry too much or we apologize for wanting a man. We feel guilty for wanting romance, love, companionship or a feminine dream. We condemn ourselves and cage our minds to what the world makes of our image.
We damage our bodies, face and spirit trying always to be thinner, prettier more lovely than someone else. We strive to find our value and significance in a world where even the best of males disappoint us.
We want to be beautiful, not for others, but for ourselves. We yearn to see and hear the appreciation of our gender on their faces.
We fight battles within our mind and mend scores of broken hearts.
Maybe we have cried too much, shopped too much and fallen in love too many times; and why is it that we always seem to make the same mistakes time and time again?
Why is it that we feel we have a duty to fulfill as mothers and paragons of propriety? When exactly do we get our break? When do will get the chance to stop apologizing for being woman?
My darling the answer is NOW. Never from the moment you were created did you have to start apologizing. You are woman, fearfully and wonderfully made in every aspect.
You are the crown of creation, the beauty of the world waiting to be unveiled. You are the song of humanity, the music of this realm. You are a daughter of the King, the breath of eternity and strength breathed into your spirit.
