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 of others within her body and life

Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself.
A woman who listens to her needs and desires.
Who meets them with tenderness and grace.

Imagine a woman who acknowledges the past's influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.

Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and wisest voice.

Imagine a woman who names her own gods.
A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness.
Who designs a personal spirituality to inform her daily 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 honors the body of the Goddess in her changing body. A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom. Who refuses to use her life energy disguising the changes in her body and life.

Imagine a woman who values the women in her life.
A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.

Imagine yourself as this woman.

    Beautiful Woman Award!

    "The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. ...True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!" SAM LEVENSON

    When I ponder beauty, I think of YOU! Thank you for gracing my life with beauty!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of the deserving women in your life. Every one you receive is a jewel in your crown... you are Daughter of the King, and YOU ARE truely beautiful!

    Hey! I just read your profile and I wanted to say, Good for you! :)
    I was diagnosed with cancer about a month after you. I have lymphoma, and thought I was done as of november, but it turns out it came back. So I am reclaiming what I can of my life, and then I will also reclaim the rest of my life after I am through with this.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    Thank you for all of your great insight and kind remarks! They sure do keep me motivated! I actually took your idea about blogging...that's why my days are numbered. I feel like if just one person expects a blog entry from me that day, that keeps me accountable!
