I recently discovered Jes from The Militant Baker, she is so cool. Seriously check her out, right now!
Anyway.....she started the most amazing link up; 'The Womanifesto Challenge'.
Here's her definition:
A written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, and views of its female author. May include themes of empowerment, independence, self love, consciousness, affirmation, and individual acceptance; your positive beliefs about yourself. Created to give self-described definition in regards to the innate beauty inside of every woman. Yes, even you.
Writing a womanifesto about who I am, what I am, and how I love who I am is in no way self-indulgent. So what, I love myself, yea I said it. I am pretty freaking awesome! Here's why:
I will be shy when I first get to know you.
I will steer clear of commitment until I find the perfect match.
I will dive in to love and get my heart broken many more times, but that's OK.
I will wear a bathing suit on the beach and be proud.
I will shrink, and grow. Clothes will be tight and loose.
I will wait until I have to shave my legs.
I will show some cleavage.
I will believe in gay marriage, Buddha, God, feminism, and my own opinion.
I will roll in the grass until I'm covered in grass stains.
I will be outspoken about things I believe in.
I will not help evil win in the fight against good.
I will stand up for what I believe in.
I will do things for me, not everyone else.
I will fight.
I will scream, laugh and cry until it hurts.
I will dress up even if I'm not going anywhere.
I will love without barriers.
I will live.
