Men and women are intrinsically different. It is how we are created. With all the push to have equality and make women like men and men like women, I feel we loose a lot of what makes us unique. Instead of trying to push to be the same as men, we need to embrace what makes us Women!
As women, we have a natural instinct to create. It’s probably why so many women love creating crafts, baking, decorating, art, etc. It’s a desire to create. And we are good at it!
As women, we have a natural instinct to nurture. It’s what makes us amazing moms, sisters, wives, daughters, aunts, and grandmothers. There is a natural call inside our souls to love, teach, cherish, and raise up those we love.
As women, we tend to have a natural instinct for beauty. Which can sometimes be a double-edged sword. The desire to be beautiful. The desire to surround ourselves with beautiful things. It’s why for some women fashion, make-up, and jewelry are so appealing.
Did someone mention a Shoe Closet? 😉
But it can also be why so many of us feel we are less than, become obsessed with being beautiful or develop unhealthy self-image views because the world around us offers us images of unattainable beauty.
Our society today tries to dissuade us from embracing our unique womanly traits. Society tries to tell us that we need to be more like a man and less like a women to have value. Society offers us unattainable beauty that we must reach for (can we say photoshop?) and leaves us feeling inferior and self-conscious.
To that, I say take a flying leap! (In all kindness possible of course).
I think women can find immense joy when we fully embrace what makes us completely unique and different from a man.
As Women, we should be embracing and cherishing our unique qualities. Not viewing them as hindrances or flaws.
A few ways to embrace being a women include:
- Accepting yourself as you are.
- Acknowledging you aren’t perfect, but you are worth-while
- Indulge in creative activities be it crafting, scrapbooking, music, theater, sewing, art, baking, etc.
- Allow yourself to take classes that will improve/inspire your creative side
- Allow yourself to indulge in a few items that make you feel beautiful and womanly.
For me that small indulgent is sometimes an outfit that I actually feel comfortable in. Sometimes my womanly indulgent is getting my hair done.
Other times it is as simple as picking out a new fragrance that makes me feel like a woman and attractive.
Not to mention a new fragrance also perks up the husbands’ awareness and attentiveness which is always a great thing!
My newest indulgence is the new Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia fragrance. (Rather fitting name right?)
I have loved Vera Wang fragrances ever since my first whiff of Princess back in 2006! Which has been my favorite fragrance…that is until now!
Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia is the newest member of the Embrace Collection and will empower you to feel beautiful every day. Just as its name describes, it’s a beautiful combination of marigold and gardenia fragrances.
It is a fruity and floral fragrance that is soft and sweet. But not overly sweet. And not overly fragrant as well. To me, it is the perfect blend of sweet and fragrance to make me feel attractive, beautiful and confident in my own skin.
And it’s not like those old “grandma” scents that you can smell 5 feet away! You merely get a very light whiff to know it’s there but to really smell it you have to be much closer.
The husband actually has to come hither to smell it. Which makes it even more appealing if you get my drift!
It’s important we make time to celebrate ourselves and embrace being a woman. And the new Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia allows you the opportunity to feel fresh and beautiful.
