A strong women…

Thinking about a strong men we usually think about his biceps, his physical strength. That’s usually the first thing coming up.

A strong women is a totally different story. It’s the attitude, state of mind and ability believing in herself at any time.

“A strong women accepts both a compliment and criticism graciously, knowing that it takes both sun and rain for a flower to grow.”

I couldn’t say it more beautiful. It is a quote I often think about. Being aware of the fact that it’s not simple to accept criticism. Not for me anyway. Growing older, it became easier. I see the value of a good criticism now and appreciate a constructive advice.

Being strong is not the same as hardheaded. And yessss, I used to be stubborn. But also that characteristic is settling down now πŸ˜‰ However, I believe strong people need to be stubborn from time to time. They need to believe in their own values and stick with it.

There is one thing I am sure of. One thing I am thankful for… having a strong men besides me. Living with Bart allows me to be myself at any time. It allows me to grow. And for that… I will always have my gratitude.


A friend of mine, Esther, gives party’s called: women on fire (and only women allowed). What a wonderful idea to celebrate her friends like that. Esther is one of those women, and for her and any other beautiful, strong women out there, I want to say this…

“The strongest action for a women, is to love herself, be herself and shine amongst those who never believed she could.”

Wholeheartedly I hope I will be that stong woman who will fight her illness with dignity and proud being a… lady πŸ™‚
