Today, I feel proud to be a woman.



It's pretty safe to say that I'm a feminist. I've never made any secret of that. However, I think that often when I tell people I'm a feminist, it's taken incorrectly. Especially by my friends that know me well. I've never been the type to turn away help or to blow myself up to be more than I am. But I believe that women have the right to feel beautiful and powerful and... hello, FEMININE!! And I strongly believe that there is NO reason that that any woman can't be all of those things.


I've spent a lot of time with other women in attempts of boosting spirits and increasing confidence. It's one of my favorite things. Today, I was able to see the fruit of my labors in one particular situation. A woman I met on an online forum a few months ago, whom I've been talking to regularly, had a problem that she chose to talk to me, a complete stranger about. She had been a victim of abusive relationships, both emotionally and physically, and had sadly lost the courage to feel beautiful.


Because, we all know, it definitely does take courage.


Today, for the first time in several years, she stood up for herself, pulled herself out of a bad relationship, and as she said, felt powerful and stunning for the first time in a VERY long time after it was over. She is now working to turn her life around. I feel very blessed to have a small part of this.


So because I'm feeling amazingly touched today, I'm filling a request that I've had asked many times.


Usually, the women I work with, I give a mantra to remember. I have several I use for myself, to boost my own confidence, and others have mentioned them working for them as well. I've been asked many times to make them as icons or a wallpapers to be used as a reminder.


I finally got around to it.







Please don't hold it against me that these aren't great. I'll probably remake them sooner or later. Moving is just kicking my butt. :]


I hope these can help whoever needs a feminine - boost. Please share these as often as you like. It would seriously make me feel fantastic to see these floating around the internet.

XOXO, Emiebee
