Being a woman

My one advice to women everywhere is to be a person. Just be a person. Before being a woman. It's great to embrace your womanhood, but before you do that, just stop and be a human being. Question the way you look at yourself. Question the things you take for granted, the things you expect, the things you accept. You are not your mistakes any more than anyone else is. You are also not who you date, how you dress and definitely not the shape of your body or the texture of your skin. It's a great thing to take care of yourself, but that shouldn't be the purpose of your existence. That shouldn't be why you get up in the morning. You don't owe beauty to anyone but yourself. Just go out and live life and make mistakes and learn and be hurt and grow and please, please, create something! Invest in who you are. There is too much pressure to look a certain way to allow you the freedom to spend time on other things. Do not let that happen. Crow's feet are good. They tell a story of a life well-laughed at. Smudged mascaras are good because they say that you lived intensely. Do not pull up the glass on a sunny day. Lose the complexion. Gain the kiss of the sun and the wind on your face. Get dirty. Clean up later. There is so much of life to live and it's so insane to waste the chance to live it!

No one is going respect unless you respect yourself. Same thing goes with trust, love, and believing in what you are. Good to see the feminism rising. :)
