When is the last time you gave that which makes you feminine much thought? As an off the charts ADHD riddled busy mom of two and a small business owner, up until recently, my answer would have been, "ummmm never." As a portrait photographer for women, it recently hit me like a ton of bricks... I am witnessing through my lens a transformation of the very definition of femininity. You would expect it to come from my younger clients, and trust me, it does. But truthfully, I marvel as I witness this shift in my clients in their 50's as they too are very much embracing and redefining what femininity is to a woman in her midlife.
This quote from a spokeswoman for Always is truthfully what started this conversation in my head. It explains the modern, feminine woman briefly and beautifully.
"New femininity is about having a combination of both soft and strong attributes. The modern woman
has the balance of being able to show a soft and supportive side, while at the same time, demonstrating
strength – she is resilient, knows what she wants and speaks her mind."
Now I am not saying we toss away that which defined the era of femininity in the time of our mothers and grandmothers... A modern version of that era raised me. However, I am inspired by the enhancement and expansion to feel no shame in embracing the entirety of the power we have as feminine beings.
Today, I am giving myself that nudge to join the party ... to embrace those things that make me a feminine queen. It will be transformational. Join me... we can help each other along the way.
