Imagine a Woman in Love with Herself


From Imagine a Woman in Love with Herself
by Patricia Lynn Reilly

Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is woman. 
A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories. 
Who refuses to carry the sins on others within her body and life.

Imagine a woman in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.
Who celebrates her body's rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman who has access to the full range of human emotion.
A woman who expresses her feelings clearly and directly.
Who allows them to pass through her as gracefully as a breath.

Imagine a woman who follows her creative impulses.
A woman who produces original creations.
Who refuses to color inside someone else's lines.

Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who trusts her inner sense of what is right for her.
Who refuses to twist her life out of shape to meet the expectations of others.

Imagine a woman who participates in her own life.
A woman who meets each challenge with creativity.
Who takes action on her own behalf with clarity and strength.

Imagine a woman who refuses to use her precious life-energy managing 
crisis and conflict.
A woman whose relationships deepen in satisfaction and contentment
without depleting her.
Who chooses friends and lovers with the necessary skills to navigate through the challenges of life.

Imagine a woman who has grown in knowledge and love of herself.
A woman who has vowed faithfulness to her own life and capacities.
Who remains loyal to herself. Regardless.

Imagine yourself as this woman.   "

I would definitely suggest reading this book if you are interested in learning more about self-love and self-acceptance. I especially love the self-love mantras that are included in every chapter.

Sending you lots of positive vibes!!

I love this! I'm all about woman self-love and self acceptance! I can't help wondering though, that if women need this sort of stuff and read about it and write about it, what is the equivalent that men need? Are there equivalent outlets for men that I just don't understand? If there isn't, then I feel bad for them.

Those are just my thoughts. Thanks for suggesting this book though, I'm def going to read it!
