177/365 Imagine A Woman

Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is

a woman. A woman who honors her experience and

tells her stories. Who refuses to carry the sins of others

within her body and life.

Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself.

A woman who listens to her needs and desires.

Who meets them with tenderness and grace.

Imagine a woman who has acknowledged the past’s influence

on the present. A woman who has walked through her past.

Who has healed into the present.

Imagine a woman who authors her own life. A woman who

exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf. Who refuses

to surrender except to her truest self and wisest voice.

Imagine a woman who names her own gods. A woman who

imagines the divine in her image and likeness.

Who designs a personal spirituality to inform her daily life.

Imagine a woman in love with her own body. A woman who

believes her body is enough, just as it is. Who celebrates

her body’s rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman who honors the body of the Goddess in her

changing body. A woman who celebrates the accumulation of

her years and her wisdom. Who refuses to use her precious

life energy disguising the changes in her body and life.

Imagine a woman who values the women in her life.

A woman who sits in circles of women.

Reminded about the truth about herself when she forgets.

Imagine yourself as this woman.
