Falling In Love With My Femininity
For years I suppressed my femininity. My desire to nurture both myself, and the people around me. As well as my longing to be a wife, mother, and my creativity and serene softness. For my heart was so deeply entangled within the pressures of striving for success, and obtaining the approval and applause of not only the world, but my loved ones. Three years ago I would have never thought that I was embark on a journey of falling in love with my femininity, because I was very much plagued with an overwhelming bondage of constantly living in survival mode. I was so focused on achieving and striving. Rather than balancing out my dreams and desires while cultivating a nurturing spirit.
I think falling in love with my femininity started when I became burned out at my last job that I was working at. The hours were absolutely long and unsociable. The role was high pressure. Targets had to be made, and my soul was unwavering and fixed on my KPI’s, even long after the work day was done. Day and night, my mind was focused on one thing. Achievements and money. And while I don’t believe achievements and money to be a bad thing, I do believe it can be unhealthy when we focus solely on those things without balancing them out by nurturing our bodies, our souls, and our relationships with friends and family. Our health has to come first in order for us to succeed to the best of our ability.
After I quit my job, I naturally began putting myself first. Nurturing my body filled me with so much bliss, serenity and strength. I prioritised eating healthy, getting regular exercise, going outside to bask in the sun to soak up some much needed vitamin d. These things I was very much deprived of when I worked at my previous job. It’s as though my whole life surrounded my work timetable and whatever my managers required of me. Breaking point hit me, and since then, I haven’t looked back again.
Falling in love with my femininity has opened my eyes to realise how much I deeply cherish my friends and family. Before, I rarely had any time to share with them. But since shifting my priorities and balancing my life out, I have found absolute happiness embracing my loved ones. There’s a huge part of me that feels my soul softening within inner beauty and peace. It’s something I’ve never experienced before. But becoming diligent in my journey of falling in love with my femininity has also saturated my heart in deep appreciation for myself and my health. Enjoying skin and body care routines, and dressing up in ways that make me happy. This new time of my life has given me the opportunity to fall in love with myself. And I hope that if this post inspired you, you will be able to embark on that beautiful journey of falling in love with your femininity too! ♡
