Imagine A Woman

This was sent to me by one of my most Beloved Friends.  I'm Honored to share it with others.  I hope it rings true for you...and the Women in your Life:

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 acknowledges 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 its 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 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.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.

Imagine yourself as this Woman.
