Yesterday I posted a question on Facebook: “What’s the most attractive quality you find in a woman?” Many of my Facebook friends participated in the conversation. Here’s the list from my wonderful friends, both men and women.
Believing in your own power and trusting your ability to handle whatever challenges life throws your way.
Respecting yourself, setting clear boundaries, and standing up for yourself.
3. Strength and courage
The ability to harness your inner resources to face life’s challenges.
A sincere willingness to relate and understand someone deeply, to genuinely feel for, and with, someone as a living part of your greater “Self.”
Being true to who you are. Freely and clearly expressing your original thoughts, feelings and actions.
Being loving and affectionate is one of the core essences of femininity, and one of the most powerful gifts of a woman.
7. Kindness, gentleness and a good heart
Being soft and gentle is not a weakness. It takes true strength to remain sensitive, gentle and caring despite all the harshness and arrogant attitude woven into today’s fast-paced society.
8. Intelligence and wisdom
A willingness and desire to learn and grow, and to develop a deeper understanding of yourself, and the world around you.
9. Passion and boldness
Allowing yourself to follow your bliss, and to create and express your deepest passions and desires.
10. Independence and self-reliance
Reliance on your own abilities and efforts to create the life you truly desire.
As you can see from the above list, true femininity is not a weakness at all despite its many common stereotypes and misinterpretations. Femininity represents something strong and powerful, yet intensely gentle and sensitive at the same time.
So – What do you think? Do you have anything to add to the list?
I hope that in the process of finding your own PMS relief, you’ll also discover and reclaim the richness and true power of your femininity. Journey on…
