When a man calls you bossy, it’s a good thing.

When I was little I remember being called bossy and even today it’s been used to describe me by a few people I know with a wry smile. The word means that I’m an assertive woman. Notice “bossy” is never used to describe men. No. It’s a term used to label women who speak with too much confidence too often. Whenever I’ve been called bossy as an adult I give a smile and a wink but what I’m really thinking is “you accidentally put a Y on the end of boss.”

There are many reasons it’s important to be a strong woman. Not just physically but emotionally and mentally too. Strong women aren’t affected by the words of those whose opinions they don’t value. These women have worked out who they are, what makes them unique and they are self assured enough to take criticism. Strong women raise intelligent, confident children. They lead others, they lead decision making, they lead countries. Strong women achieve goals, chase careers and their faces grace bank notes. Strong women know their self worth, they know what they want and how to get it. Strong women scare boys and intrigue men. The same women aren’t afraid to make mistakes, admit to those mistakes and learn how to not make them again. Strong women aren’t afraid of other females, they don’t feel threatened, they don’t feel the need to belittle or intimidate. Strong women are at peace for they know they possess all that they require within them to achieve everything they put their mind to. –

I haven’t yet achieved everything I mentioned above but it’s something I strive toward and I hope that you all strive for the same. There’s nothing more inspiring, more dangerous or more impressive than a strong woman.🌸😏 

Happy Monday.
