What if Every Woman
spoke her truth no matter how painful?
spoke her truth without needing to be responsible for the reactions of others?
spoke her deep truths from her heart and womb?
stopped listening to the limiting beliefs passed down to her?
stopped trying to do it all or be it all?
stopped pretending that her needs do not matter?
left the thoughts that she is not good enough in the trash can at the curb?
left physically, mentally, emotionally abusive relationships?
left her unsatisfying, draining job?
paused long enough to be present with herself?
paused long enough to be present with her family? her children?
paused when she was called to pause, rest when she was called to rest?
remembered how perfect and amazing and creative she is?
remembered that she deserves every ounce of ecstatic pleasure possible in life?
remembered that she does not need to suffer in the pain of the past?
held hands with one another and supported one another?
held herself as the queen of her world?
held her womb, the creative center, as holy and sacred?
knew that she is capable of all this?
knew that she could heal herself?
knew she could do it?
What would our world look like?
