Being a Woman

Being a woman is the art of being both intrinsically powerful and inherently vulnerable. Powerful beyond measure. Power of mind, body and spirit. The power to create and destroy. The power to give life. Despite this power though, we still seek to understand the duality of our nature. We accept that life's beauty truly radiates in the hands of balance. Balance. She holds us close, whispering promises of fulfillment and joy; if only we seek her. Alas, such a task is much easier said than done. Yet we try, sometimes with success and often in vain. We open the door to our souls. We let down the proverbial wall that we built with the power of our minds and the energy of our souls. The fire within is the very fire we fight, so as not to keep the air from flowing in and out of our hearts. A great dichotomy indeed. It seems that truly, being a woman is the art of being free.
