This One is for the Women

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. I’m getting this up a day late due to some crazy life stuff, but I feel it’s important to post it anyway.

I feel like this year, it feels so much more powerful to celebrate the forces of nature that are the women in our lives. And in celebration of them, I have collected these quotes of women who inspire me and hopefully will inspire you too.

This one is for the women.

For the women who run;

If they could run faster, maybe they could run like us too.

For the women who inspire

When one of us rises, we all rise

For the women who dream

Of being astronauts, scientists, teachers, or President.

For the women who fight

Fight to protect themselves, fight for their voices to be heard, fight for their rights.

For the women who live

From the smallest child to the oldest warrior

For the women who love

Who demonstrate to us beauty and compassion

For you, the woman reading this.

May you love in the face of all the hatred.

May you live and thrive in this world, despite those who would stop you.

May you have the strength to protect all that is important to you.

May you dream and realize those dreams.

May you inspire everyone you meet.

May you run, may you rise, may you be unstoppable.

XOXO,

Elizabeth Aedyn

Hello and welcome! My name is Elizabeth. Twenty-something, married with a cat, Idaho Native, and chronic illness warrior. I like poetry, sword-fighting, and talking about 16th-century clothing, especially all in the same day. I believe in wearing black year round, in the soul soothing comfort of a cup of tea, and that everything is better with red lipstick. You can find me across the internet at @fieryoneco, I'd love to chat with you! Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like it here.
