She is me

With International Women’s Day still fresh in our minds, I think it is important to share our stories, the real-life of a woman and to celebrate me, you, us, girls, women, mothers and grandmothers.


“She is strong.” Isaiah 40:31


“She is valiant.” 2 Samuel 13:28


“She is fearless.” Proverbs 31:25


“She is enough.” Psalm 46:5


We tend to forget who we are, Who made us and Who made us to be us. We tend to see all the negatives, the issues and all the wrongs. We tend to share only the good and the beautiful. We tend to blame ourselves, our bodies and our doings for everything that goes wrong.


We compare. We wish. We desire.


We love. We hate.


We cry. We laugh.


Women are powerful, imagine if we uplift rather break down. Imagine if we hug, rather hate. Imagine if we praise rather than gossip. Imagine if we grant kindness, rather deny happiness.


Just imagine.


Women can be so good to each other, for each other. But they can also cause so much pain to one another.


May we find the best in each other. May we inspire and empower.


May we celebrate our bodies, our hearts, our souls. May we celebrate our scars, our pain, our experiences. May we rise.


We are capable of so much more than we think.


Forgive. Forget.


Invite, enjoy. Celebrate. Love.


Share moments. Reach out.


You are more than just a woman. I am more. I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend. And so much more.

I thought my body failed me during my pregnancy, but no, life failed me. I felt like I am the only one suffering from endometriosis, that I am the only one that needs surgery every year, but no, there’s a whole endo-army around me. I wished I could look better, but no God made me beautiful. I think I am not a good mom, but no, I am the best mom my child can ask for. God made me exactly how He wanted to.


Women are fierce, women are brave, women are capable. Women are me. She is me.
