Embrace Your Femininity

Happy Women’s Day.

I have been meaning to share this article for so long. I wrote about 7 drafts in last 10 months. Yes. I started writing this article in June, 2015.  What took me so long? Didn’t find the right words or maybe I was waiting for a good occasion to share this or may be both ! I’m so glad I’m finally sharing it with my readers.

What is femininity?

First , let me tell you what it is not.  Buying new clothes for yourself  and wearing lots of make up is not femininity. It’s a ‘sign’ of femininity. Looking presentable has a ripple effect in your life that will touch others the most unexpected ways.

Femininity is that deep, passionate , soulful essence that makes us a woman. It’s this essence which keeps us moving with the flow of life, helps us embrace our creative energies, dance, play and attune to our internal processes. Femininity is essentially the energy you give out when you are not trying to be something other than yourself.

Here are 10 ways you can get in touch with your femininity:

Reflect: Take time to listen to what’s going on inside of us.  For this you will have to spend some time in your own company. And why not? If you can’t spend 10 minutes in your own company, imagine how others feel when you are around.

Get creative: A woman’s body is designed to create new life.  Creation can occur in many ways – writing, painting, dance,artistic expression. Anything that expresses your flow is considered feminine.

Have an aura of self confidence, not the obnoxious kind but the genuine sense that you like yourself and your life. The kind of confidence which radiates positive energy and motivates others to be like you.

Don’t be competitive with others.  I’m always, almost always less anxious and rarely feel inclined to compete with other women because I like who I’m, I understand my self worth and I’m really happy to see other women doing well in their lives.

Retrain your negative thoughts and become emotionally lighter. There is no point in keeping any kind of negativity in our mind because it is said that thoughts become actions later on. So keep them positive.

Never define yourself by what you don’t want or what you don’t like. Begin to embrace what you do and what you want/like.

Make yourself a priority. It’s not selfish. It’s intelligent. Don’t regard taking care of yourself as taking care away from others or other responsibilities. Feeling good is healthy, not selfish.

Take pleasure to pamper and primp the exterior while always educating and expanding your intellect, your curiosity for life. Never miss the pleasure factor. Keep yourself young not just through physical aspects – hair, makeup, clothes, posture – but also the intellectual endeavors you ought to pursue – develop a new hobby, learn a new dish, read a new book, join painting classes , watch international cinema or learning a new language / dance.

Love being a woman: Do and think whatever makes you feel like a woman. Maybe a bubble bath / relaxing shower  every night or a quick mani-pedi or dancing to your favorite beats. Looking presentable all the time is telling yourself ( and the rest of the world)  that you care about yourself.

Choose your mood: Happy women are sexy women. Beauty is more an energy than it is a physical trait. Positivity and warmth are attractive. Decide how you want to look like. If you ask me, I always choose to be happy , no matter what !

Live To Impress No One:  Women who have healthy sense of their own value are delightful to be around because they never play games, put on airs or try to impress anyone. They don’t need to because they have a sense that they lack very little. They are not enamored with themselves , they are just humble. They are so comfortable with who they are that they are free to elevate others.

Embracing your femininity is a marvelous way to celebrate being a woman. You don’t have to do it for anyone other than yourself. Each and every woman is unique and beautiful in her own way. We are all of a kind. Let’s honor that on a daily basis.

Here’s to strong women.

May we know them.

May we be them.

May we raise them.

Cheers !

  1. Very nice Monika and beautifully put GBU JMD

  2. I love your post and the great message. Even though you feel like you should have written it sooner, I think now was the best time, because at the end of the day being in the moment is all that matters. Great job!

  3. I love these tips to get in touch with your femininity. My favorite is the one about NOT competing with each other. Women can be so cruel to one another and in reality we are fighting a lot of the same battles. The way I see it, the only person I’m competing against is who I was yesterday!

  4. Celebrating all that we are and meant to be is powerful. Here’s to embracing our Inner Goddess! <3

  5. This post is a lovely reminder that we are all beautiful and need to be ourselves. Women are so often compared or are comparing themselves with others and it leaves us very unhappy with who we are or how we look

  6. Well no wonder it took you so long, the topic to @ embrace your Femininity” is a very complicated one and one I would take my time about too.
    Love the look after self first for I know you cant pour from an empty cup. Fill your sup first and care for others. And Self Confidence comes from self love, positive thought engender a positively happy life 🙂

  7. Great post! I think we become our best selves when we could care less about what people think of us. Just be.

  8. Inspiring article. I love it! Sometimes a lot of that is much easier said than done. It’s hard to be a strong woman all the time, and sometimes it’s exhausting. I would love someone to take care of me just once. LOL!

  9. I really enjoyed reading this, and couldn’t agree more!

  10. I think it’s important to make ourselves a priority. We will instantly feel happier and more attractive.

  13. Simply wowwwww👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  14. Wonderful! I understand that it took you so long to write the post. Femininity is something that deserves a lot of thought. I agree a woman should make herself a priority. Women tend to put others first -children, husband, friends, parents, etc.- which speaks a lot of women’s generosity, but it is also important to take care of ourselves. No one else is going to do it for us!

    • Yes..we need to take good care of our own selves first and then only we can take care of the rest! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Fabiola☺
