One woman can change the lives of many women, but it takes many women to feed the confidence and broaden the intellect of each groundbreaking woman.
It’s like the age old story of how a flower can’t grow on its own; it needs water, soil, sunlight, and then pollination of course to continue its legacy. So, women are like flowers. Beautiful, blooming flowers.
They are delicate yet strong. Unique and unpredictable. Growing and wilting with the seasons. Endless, and relentless.
There is nothing more breathtaking than a field of blossoming, florals. They’re an army standing against nature. Feeding into one another, feeding off of one another, growing with one another.
The women in my life are the sunlight, the soil, the water I need to bloom. The women they give me the opportunity to touch are the pollination that will take my words and the words of other great women and pass them on. They criticized and empowers me to grow from a tiny little seed. Everyday they push me to develop into the most magnificent flower I can be in order to stand amongst the unstoppable field of flowers that is the women of 2017.
What does it mean to be a woman?
It means not only being the flower, but the oxygen to grow other flowers in a field we are proud to call ours.
Accepting criticism. Criticizing society. Building a better home.
