Imagine a woman in love with her own body. A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is. Who celebrates her body's rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman who has access to the full range of human emotion. A woman who expresses her feelings clearly and directly. Who allows them to pass through her as graceflly as a breath.

Imagine a woman who tells the truth. A woman who trusts her experience of the world and expresses it. Who refuses to defer to the thoughts, perceptions and responses of others.

Imagine a woman who follows her creative impulses. A Woman who produces original creations. Who refuses to color inside someone else's lines.

Imagine a woman who authors her own life. A woman who trusts her inner sense of what is right for her. Who refuses to twist her life out of shape to meet the expectations of others.

Imagine a woman whose relationships deepen in satisfaction and contentment without depleting her. Who chooses friends and lovers with the necessary skills to navigate through the challenges of life.

Imagine a woman who values the women in her life. A woman who sits in circles of women and is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.

Beautiful and moving words for me to stumble upon this week. Just what I needed to hear.

Also...I honor how Jen speaks her heart openly and bravely. We can all learn so much from her.

Oh...and on a side note: this is a cool website by the Music Genome Project to help you discover music you might not find otherwise.
