Zooey

Zooey Deschanel

Being tender and open is beautiful.  As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed.  Too sensitive.  Too mushy.  Too wishy washy.  Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness.  Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.  Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things.  Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep… feel it all.

The continual "shh"ing is sadly too common. I wish more people felt open to what Zooey is offering. I do. I don't mind crying in public, I think that helps ;) xo

Wonderful post and I couldn't agree more! We are softer .. maternal, and make the best care givers. I also believe that women have the ability to - and CAN show strength and toughness when they need to. We should embrace our femine side and enjoy being women:)
