There is so much beauty in being a woman.
As I sat here this morning, with my cup of coffee in hand, looking out my window at the dreary, muggy, rainy January day before me I openly said “Pick a season!”. Thinking to myself that Mother nature is certainly a wishy washy woman, and a freaking moody bitch. Then I thought about myself, and how these months, this time of year, multiple seasons meld one into the other in my life and I don’t really choose a season either. So I sat and reflected for a bit about women in general.
We are often quick to label each other as crazy, be it in jest or in anger. We call each other bitches as terms of endearment and as terms of hate. We, as women, do the most damage to the image of what women are! We don’t build up ourselves and we don’t build up others. We just don’t.
Women are strong. Women will fight for what they believe in, and get down and dirty in the process. They will argue and go round and round and round like a dog chasing its tail, not because they are crazy, but because they are passionate. Women are passionate about EVERYTHING! Show us a new product and its either LOVE or not. It’s pretty clear cut.
Women are sensitive. If somebody we care about is hurt, we care. If you say something that strikes us wrong, we care. When a woman tells you she doesn’t care, she cares! Women care. Really, we do. We care a lot. About everything. We don’t like to see suffering or hurt. We like it less if we have contributed to it. And even less if we see an underdog being picked on. We rally together. Often against each other. But its not so much out of hate, at the core. Its out of misunderstandings, mistakes, and sensitivity.
Women are nurturing. We will spend a long long time, willing to give our all for something we believe in. We love to know that our little efforts lend themselves to a greater cause. We love to be a part of a village. We are all very well aware that we are stronger with friends and family. Nurturing comes naturally.
When you see the quote “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” remember all of the above. It is not because a woman is crazy, or mean, or a bitch. Its because she is passionate, sensitive, strong and above all else human.
