This is for Women…inner strength!

~

… We, women, assume multiple roles as adults today, some begin even younger, depending on the country lived in. We know this.

For whatever designated role(s) is/are assigned to us we know there will be more, as has been our understanding since…well since always … not a secret, just known, by us!

The things we do daily are often onerous and numerous. Still we go about our multitasking each day while a variety of situations rise up to interrupt and delay. It’s often exhausting.

This post is about outer awareness/inner strength.

The framework that we are encased in is our physical body. Within the body a chemical factory the goes with the flow of our being. We wake, we think, we do. The framework supports our actions. And…

There is a flow you can use to strengthen your ability to accomplish what you have set out to do for the day. I call it movement with a purpose.

Some time back I wrote about flow and movement but this post today is specific to women as I think we are (most of us) less aware of the importance of physical strength.

Again not so much about lifting weights (a good thing actually) or exercising (another good thing) but specifically how you move with your body each day and how your mind thinks as a result of this patterned movement.

The pictures above are just to illustrate the flow of strength and beauty in a movement. None of us looks or acts like a model or an actress. We are who we are. It is the attitude and body movements that convey not only an outer appearance of strength but also an inner feeling of same.

So here’s the lesson:

A simple one: When you move be aware of your body, carry yourself with a sense of purpose, feel your heartbeat and breath deeply and slowly to regulate it, the movement of your body will accompany this beat if you increase your awareness of it.

Hold your head erect. We are women and proud of this. When we walk with purpose, a sense to the day (the body recognizes this and passes the message along to all of it’s parts; increasing your inner strength and capability. Point in fact you will simply feel better for it. Give it a try ladies, works for me!

Reaching …

The Reaching Hand

Almost from the moment of birth we are reaching.

… reaching for the stars

… reaching for the moon

… reaching for a better life

… reaching for understanding

… reaching for love.

Along the way we falter, and in the chain of human life – there are those with wisdom, experience and strength of character to be there during those times of uncertainty.

If we but look for them and, if needed, ask for help.

It is a process of growing, learning from mistakes and moving forward.

The empty hand is a sadness. It represents dreams unfulfilled, loneliness, bitterness and defeat.

The empty hand symbolizes to us we have not reached that which we set out to reach … that perhaps we have failed. That the reaching was for naught.

But it does not have to be. You need never stop reaching. Not ever.

There is always hope, there is always possibilities to be explored.

There is always the ‘one more time’ to make the difference, just as long as you keep reaching.

Never stop, never give up. It isn’t easy and sometimes it will be the hardest thing you’ve ever done … but it is worth the extra reach … to make it happen.

Keep reaching, and if you’ve reached your goals

than extend your hand to make that difference for another.

Always reaching, always growing, always loving.

 Never Stop Reaching

Thank you for visiting, have a good weekend, reach out to those in need right now, it’s a good time for this.
