Hey there :)
So these "Womanifestos" are floating around. I first read this one...then this one & it all started with this one. Talk about inspiring!! Goes right along with my Self Love journey & woman-power kick I have been on, so naturally I loved reading them and wanted to write my own!!!
These were beautifully written...mine may be sloppy since I've had a long day & I'm a bit tired...but what's better than RAW and REAL, right???!
So here goes, my Womanifesto:
I am Jamie.
Always been a little different. And have sometimes tried to cover up what made me different...but now, these past few years, GROWTH. And learning to love what makes me unique.
I will not apologize for the way I am.
I will not apologize for not fitting molds.
My home does not look like a magazine. I do not dress like all the other mom's I see at the park.
I am moody. Emotional. Colorful. Creative. Loving. WOMAN.
I give myself permission to change & evolve with the seasons, with my moods, with my inspirations.
I give myself permission to always ONLY try to be the best version of ME.
I want to live my life as if people aren't watching or looking or judging.
I will NOT be perfect.
I will mess up. I will contradict myself.
I don't care. I take the pressure off.
I will be an emotional creature, because that's just who I am.
I am a woman, a strong one most of the time.
I like to be right. I love knowledge.
I want to be BOLD.
But I will also break down, have my bad days.
And that's OK. Just keepin' it real.
I will dance. And spin. And love feeling my heart pounding...alive.
I will cry over books.
And grow too attached to music.
I will sing, loudly in my car.
I will try to give love. Smile at strangers.
I will be nostalgic and hold tight to my memories.
I won't apologize for feelings.
I want to OWN my "flaws". Truly love being a woman. A tattooed woman. A young mom.
I am a lover of self-love and girl-power.
A hater of anything that objectifies women.
I am overly emotional.
I love hard.
I take each day, and try to make it count.
I think deeply and see deeply...this is part of me, it makes me feel alive. I hope this never changes.
I AM beautiful.
I AM one of a kind.
I AM strong.
So there you go...my own personal Womanifesto. That was so freeing & empowering, I just might write more of them sometime!!
And speaking of empowering, I just started reading this...
So far it's awesome. Anyone read it??
Lots of Love...
