• Happy International Women’s Day Phenomenal Woman

    Happy International Women’s Day amazing woman!  In honor of today’s day I wanted to share with you Maya’s Angelou’s amazing Poem titled Phenomenal Woman to remind you of your magnificence.

    Phenomenal Woman

    “Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
    I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size.
    But when I start to tell them,
    They think I’m telling lies.

    I say,
    It’s in the reach of my arms
    The span of my hips,
    The stride of my step,
    The curl of my lips.
    I’m a woman
    Phenomenally.
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.I walk into a room
    Just as cool as you please,
    And to a man,
    The fellows stand or
    Fall down on their knees.
    Then they swarm around me,
    A hive of honey bees.

    I say,
    It’s the fire in my eyes,
    And the flash of my teeth,
    The swing in my waist,
    And the joy in my feet.
    I’m a woman
    Phenomenally.
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.Men themselves have wondered
    What they see in me.
    They try so much
    But they can’t touch
    My inner mystery.
    When I try to show them
    They say they still can’t see.

    I say,
    It’s in the arch of my back,
    The sun of my smile,
    The ride of my breasts,
    The grace of my style.
    I’m a woman

    Phenomenally.
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.

    Now you understand
    Just why my head’s not bowed.
    I don’t shout or jump about
    Or have to talk real loud.
    When you see me passing
    It ought to make you proud.

    I say,
    It’s in the click of my heels,
    The bend of my hair,
    the palm of my hand,
    The need of my care,
    ‘Cause I’m a woman
    Phenomenally.
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.”

    No one better than Maya Angelou to describe the magnificence of what being a woman is. My question to you is what does being a woman mean to you? Are you aware of your magnificence, of your power, and of the gift that you are in the world?

    Please share with me in the comments below, but most importantly let us all begin to own our magnificence and the phenomenal women that we all are, and let’s support each other when one of us has forgotten her greatness.

    May you be able to embrace the brilliance of who you are, and may you be able to acknowledge all the gifts that you bring to this world. Once again Happy International Women’s Day Phenomenal Woman!
