Do I feel this way because of the type of adjectives I’d choose to describe me if given a choice?
I do love this one…
Do I feel this way because, since I lifted weights a bit before it was “hip”, strong to me has always meant empowered?
are muscles my hidden cape?
Or is it because Im a mother now?
I want her to be strong and confident…
I dont see SEXY I see COMFY IN SKIN-SUIT…
To me strong is not the new skinny.
Strong is not the next SEXY.
If anything—for me—STRONG is a gift we give our children.
It’s a gift we bestow upon other women/girls in our lives.
It’s a silent message of ‘it’s ok to have muscles.’
It’s a constant wordless message of the notion it’s OK and AWESOME to be capable of exerting great force—physical and mental.
Sure at times strong can be sexy—-but isnt that the by product of strength? the confidence? the empowerment? the PRIDE?
For me strong is enough.
Strong just IS.
no other adjectives needed.
What is it for you?
