Today, on International Women’s Day, I got the opportunity to gauge my journey and evolution from a self-doubting, validation-seeking woman to a published author strong enough to stand up for myself.
I present to you a sneak peek into my journey to celebrate the Woman in me. Wishing all my dear readers a very happy International Women’s Day and a very Happy Holi. Trust me, it was never an easy journey. But rollercoasters are always more enjoyable and mimic life more closely.
The woman I thought I wasn’t, The woman I always longed to be; The woman who owns herself sans judgment, That woman resides in me. The woman who knows her priorities, Despite what others think they should be; The woman answerable only to herself, That woman resides in me. The woman that needs no validation, From those who do not agree; Who are unaware or her trials and turmoil, That woman resides in me. The woman who can switch roles, Like the shades of her lipstick, with full sincerity; Giving her best to all of them, That woman resides in me. She was not evident at first, Walked as my shadow alongside me; Through the thick and thin of the storm of life, Until I set it free. I nurtured her, and gave her strength, Told her she holds the key; And with baby steps and a constant nudge, That woman became ME.
