Proud to be a woman!

Proud to be a woman, proud to be my own boss and proud to never shut up!

People often told me when I was growing up that I was too loud, too expressive, too honest and that I needed to learn to be quieter and basically, not myself. Although I always felt it wasn't fair, after my teenage years, I tried to shut up more and I finished this journey in depression, with an eating disorder. After that, I decided that enough was enough, and if I wanted to be myself again, I had to stop being like everybody else and trying to fit the mould. I became myself again, never mind if some people weren't happy about it! I'm still sensitive, respectful and considerate. Being honest doesn't make me a rude person.

Being a woman to me today is to get control of my life, be proud of my choices and always be true to myself. But it's also tearing up in front of an emotional Disney movie, putting lipstick on when I feel like it, and complaining about this stupid belly that is never completely flat. We're not perfect, we'll never be, but I try to remind myself everyday that I should be proud of where I am, who I am, and where my choices will take me.

(Now I feel that I should have included 'Run the world' by Beyoncé haha!)

Happy International Women's Day!
