Happy International Women’s Day
I love birch trees because they so proudly sport their scars. Every mark on their white skin is a reminder of lost branches and harm inflicted. The more scars the more majestic and beautiful they appear to us.
As women we work especially hard to hide our scars: physical and emotional. We should wear them with pride instead of believing that they diminish us. They do not make us less than we are, they are evidence of a life lived.
On this day when we recognize women and feel kinder and less judgemental towards our sisters, maybe we should remember to act the same way towards ourselves. Be yourself, you are perfect just as you are.
