Welcome To Womanhood: Nine Inspiring Stories from Nine Inspiring Women



I asked an incredible bunch of every day women to write about an interesting concept; The first experience where they knew for certain that they had grown into women and were no longer girls.  Here is what they had to say.....



  • Being A Woman in Today's World Means... "As I get older and start to understand the complexities of being a woman across the globe, the meaning of it can be difficult to articulate. Each of us live a different set of privileges and life experiences" ~ Tania Clarke Read More Here



  •  Menstration: "It didn’t happen instantly. But that’s when it started. That day, I realized that I could no longer afford to act like a child. I couldn’t let myself be walked over. I couldn’t let anyone (besides my parents since I was still a minor, hehe) make decisions for me. I had to use my voice" ~ Chipo Read More Here...



  • What Makes a Woman a Woman?: "Women are not made in a single moment! It takes time to build a beautiful & intelligent woman of virtue, some more than others. Truth is, you will find 30 year old girls & 19 year old women." ~ Liz Byamugisha Read More Here... 



  • Growing Into A Woman:  "As a girl leaving adolescence and approaching adulthood, the most important thing I have learned is to never stop seeking knowledge. Whether it’s knowledge on finances, fitness, the arts, or simply how things work."  ~ Masani Baily Read More Here



  • Living Your Best Single Life: Long story short, this book made me realize it was okay to “eat off the fine china.” I needed to embrace living. I realized I had been waiting for my life to “begin” (cue Tangled song), but, in fact, my life was already in full swing." ~  Allysse Shank Read More Here...




  • Advice to Your Future Self: "Always remember we never run from the rain, so please let it cleanse you on days when you need it the most. Disappear from the crowd a lot, it helps with finding your peace and joy through prayer."~ Sinawo Bukani Read More Here...




  • Marriage: "You know I´ve been thinking...perhaps it´s about the pause. The being. The here. The now. The joy. The satisfaction. Maybe we should stop setting the goals and just BE. “Enjoy the journey” as they say. Dig deeper, pick up that relationship with God. I recommend that you continue surrounding yourself with incredible women who inspire you and who fill you with that powerful energy which flows with every beat of your heart." ~  R.  Read More Here...

 

  • Motherhood: "Eventually, My husband returns to work. It’s  now just me and our baby. There is so much to do, and that the small voice is back again doubting me, “You are never going to manage without extra help!” ~ Jean Wanyana Read More Here...



  • Love: " ‘You’re here’, you say to me, with a slight smile, your eyes never once leaving mine. The neighbor goes quiet for the first time in a long time, looking at each one of us in turns as he tries to understand, no, to absorb what is happening. Everything stands still. This right here, this is one of those moments. " ~ Kullein Ankunda  Read More Here...
