An invitation to live into, a practice, a dedication, a pledge.
I am a woman, not a lovelier version of a man.
I am devoted to loving myself in the untamed way – through cultivating self-acceptance, awareness, knowledge, respect, and trust. I am committed to discovering and living into my ever evolving truth. The truth of what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. The truth of what it means to be me, the me that I AM, not that society, culture, family, government, religion or other structures have dictated to me. I am discerning.
I listen to my wild soul and trust her innate wisdom and guidance.
I have boundaries. I do not sacrifice myself for the benefit of others. I say no when I mean no and yes when I mean yes. I am just as worthy of my own time, energy, and attention as all of my loved ones. I am a loved one. I do not need others to be different or agree with me for me to feel OK. I do my best to respect others’ beliefs, opinions, cultures, choices, self-expression, and sexuality, even if I don’t understand. I am a global sister. I am always working towards being a safe place to land for all life and all people. I know that it’s not all about me, but that it does start with me and I happily accept responsibility for my own life.
I am a work in progress and a work of art.
My body is sacred. I am willing to have courageous conversations. I embrace my uniqueness, my power, my beauty, my creativity, my inner fire, my passion, my fierceness and my softness.
I reserve the right to change my mind.
When I want to be harsh with myself I choose gentleness instead. I honor the earth and all her creations. I am unashamed. I trust that my temporary circumstances never have to be my permanent reality. I am a powerful creator. I am receptive. I am a force for expansion, for love, and for good.
I am a Wild Soul Woman.
