It astounds me that women march to gain power. Perhaps their cause is advanced in some public way, or perhaps they achieve a personal feeling of power. I do not judge. I merely wonder.
The power of a woman is one of the foundations of a healthy society. Public recognition is gratifying, but not necessary to her strength. Real strength needs nothing to prop it up or to prove it. It simply is.
If it is difficult for you to comprehend this, then perhaps you have not been in the company of a very good woman. Surely then, you have had the experience of being in the company of a very bad woman, and you know of what power I speak.
Woman by nature have an almost gravitational pull, an influence that men cannot begin to attempt. You (yes I’m talking to you, girl) have the capacity to transform those around you. You have the ability to change everything from the the atmosphere to the course of history wherever you are. Choices matter. Even those little ones.
Wield your weapon carefully. Men and children can be harmed. They are fragile in a way you are not. Wear your crown with humility but never sheepishly. You have a noble purpose and bearing children may only be the prologue. But don’t let that put you off. Many women have skipped the prologue and spend their lives putting the rest of us to shame.
So, don’t waste your valuable and precious essence. Plan to be a woman of love. A woman of truth. A woman who aims high. Others may choose otherwise but to do anything less is to live a lie.
