Love Your Body

Love your body! Love every curve, slant, dip, dimple, and scar. Love your body to focus on your self-love.  Love your body enough to feed it clean food and drink water. Love your body enough to be active. Love your body enough to meditate and do yoga.

Quotes for Life

Q. “Why do you think so many women who want to be married aren’t?” -Belinda Luscombe

A. “Women’s standards and requirements have lowered. And as men, we know that. We have taken advantage of it. We’ve created terms that we feed to women that allow us to exist as we do. We created the term ‘nagging.’

Quotes for Life 

“Where after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Test they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in, the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works.

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2

Being a woman is not easy. I was asked on New Years Eve, why the focus of my blog was on women being the best versions of themselves and why were men not included? The exclusion was not on purpose, necessarily, but it is, without a doubt, that women need more of a focus because, this is in fact a [heterosexual] mans world.

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

I love words because they allow me to express myself, when often times, I find myself to be speechless, as a speaker. As a writer, I can describe every ounce of me and that is why I love quotes. Quotations provide a short, detailed, descriptive, and insightful look into the mind of a speaker.

I was not necessarily nominated for this challenge, but I was inspired to participate! I visited a page of Jess Wade, who inspired me through her writing and as a mature blogger. I am new to this community of writers, poets, artists, photographers, etc. but, I have been writing since my first pencil hit a blank page.

I appreciate Jess for checking out my site, reading some of my posts, and encouraging me to participate in this challenge. Please check out her page…she is an inspiration! 

This first quote is something that I aim to live by everyday.

As women in this mans world, this can cause many inferior feelings about our worth. 

We are taught in the media, and even in our homes, that we are not as important as men, which causes, low self-esteem; a lack of self-love, self-respect, value, and overall inequality for us in society.

I hope this quote inspires someone to see themselves as more than what popular culture and social media tells them they should be!
