I beg to differ with the above meme! A strong woman is one who can bench press more than 100lbs! Whereas a Woman of Strength is one who:
-Can make decisions for herself AND collaborate with her husband and others on the decision making process;
-Has strong opinions AND can listen attentively;
-Works to change HERSELF and works to change the WORLD for the better;
Encourages and believes in HERSELF and OTHERS;
-Has Pride AND Humility;
-Strives for balance between focusing on Herself AND focusing on Others;
-Knows when to have a “Me First” attitude, or an “Others First” attitude, and finally a “Together We Can” Attitude;
-Knows that “Do what I say, not what I do” doesn’t work, but modeling the behavior she would like to see in others goes much further;
-Is grateful for what she has
-Understands that being miserable and frustrated will only lead to more negativity, but being joyful and content leads to wonderful, positive changes in her life;
-Darkens a room when it’s time to go to sleep, and allows the Light in during the day. Duh.
-Does not seek to be served, nor seeks to serve others – but rather works in equality to get the job done.
-Can give instructions, as well as accept instructions
-Has Control over her own body
-Knows that God is the only one that she should serve! (Unless, of course, she is an atheist, or agnostic, which is her own prerogative.)
PEACE to ALL THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK IN BLACK AND WHITE. LIFE IS SO MUCH MORE WONDERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL WHEN YOU THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!
