10 Beautiful things you should embrace about your womanhood
Whatever shape and size you are, you should be proud to be a woman. In ancient civilisations, womanhood was revered, because women are beautiful, they bring life into the world and they nurture the young. Today, often, women work and play an equal role with men, but that is no reason not to still be proud of being a woman. Here are ten things about womanhood that every woman should love and embrace.
1. Being able to bring new life into the world
Having babies is not the ‘be all and end all’ for all women, but it’s certainly something to be celebrated. The gift of being able to bring a new life into the world, to care for it and to help it grow is a wonderful gift indeed.
2. Women are pillars of support and strength
When the men start panicking, the women start coming into their own. Women have an inherent ability to stand on their own, when they need to, and provide support in times of a crisis. They also naturally reach out to other people in need and help them get through tough times too.
3. Be proud of your body
Celebrate your body, because whatever size or shape you are, a woman’s body is infinitely more attractive than a man’s! That’s why the great masterpieces of artwork often depict the naked female form, and not the male, so be proud of that beauty that you have.
4. Women are far more capable of taking on multiple roles
A woman can be a mum, a sensuous partner, a nurse and a committed career girl, all in the space of one day. This is one of the aspects of womanhood that really sets apart the genders and a woman can swap roles in the blink of an eye.
5. You can multi-task
This is often said as a joke, but it’s absolutely true. You try getting a man to take care of a baby, cook the dinner, keep down a job and still look great at the end of the day!
6. You can make heads turn
You can make heads turn when you walk into a room too. Your attitude, your energy, your style, as well as your looks can get you noticed in a crowd, especially, when you show the world that you are proud to be a woman.
7. You are emotionally strong
From an early age, women have to bear difficulties of many different types and that soon teaches them to be strong. Men might be good at hiding their emotions, but they are in no way as good as women are in handling them.
8. Embrace who you are without the makeup and fine clothes
Having said all that, a woman should also be able to embrace who she is when she stands in front of the mirror, naked and without makeup. Wearing makeup and fine clothes only serves to enhance your natural beauty, but it doesn’t make it.
9. Your compassion also is a part of what makes you a woman
You should also be proud of the compassion and kindness that you are able to show others. Your willingness to want to stop hurt and pain in other people is an admirable trait that men most men lack.
10. Your stretch marks
What makes a woman beautiful is far more than a flat stomach and flawless skin. No matter how much your body changes, you can still be proud of it. Stretch marks and a less than perfectly flat stomach are nothing to be ashamed of; they are a reminder that you are a woman who lives life.
