Like so many women of my generation, I grew up reading the books and poems of the great Maya Angelou. Today I was saddened to hear the news of her death. I immediately thought of this post I wrote two years ago about my place in the world and phenomenal women.
Look back at the words! When I read them my head lifts with pride, my shoulders pull back and my chest sticks out. I feel special and important. As I read the words, whether aloud or silently, I feel the phenomenon that is me! I feel like a phenomenal woman. I see my body and appreciate its lines and curves. I picture the reaction and hushed whispers and looks of admiration when I walk into a room. I agree that when I pass people should be proud to see me, just as I am, because I am a phenomenal woman.
Every person should have a positive self image. There is something powerful and enlightening about having a good self image. When I am around people who stand up straight and think they are wonderful, it is encouraging and empowering and I like it! Appropriate self pride is contagious. When I get all dolled up and start strutting my stuff, my twin daughters get excited and start to prance around. They feel pretty and special. They catch my phenomenon!
Sometimes people need a little spark to light the ember of good self image. For any woman, this Maya Angelou poem can spark a great attitude and self confidence. So the question for you this wonderful day is what sparks the phenomenal woman attitude in you?
