I Knew I Was a Woman When

Okay, ladies, fill in the blank, with as little or much as you can think of:

Must say, I love the pic, symbolically provacative, and beautiful.

The strength of being a female has always been with me. The conviction that being a woman, full of strength, life and love, has never faltered.

The difference between girl and woman evolved gradually more due to my profession as a nurse. Having to deal with life and death matters at a young age, supporting others much older than I with end of life decisions, and defining my own ethical ideals, encouraged my growth earlier than some.

Also, the sexuality with being a woman grew more appaent throughout college and my early 20's, with all the pleasures, and the benefits.

I don't think I have arrived at that point. The little girl in me is still very much present in my life. In my heart I am still 16. An experienced 16....a very experienced 16. But after giving birth to five beautiful children and raising them to adulthood and then watching them in turn give life to their children, I may consider the honor of being a woman. For that matter anyone can call me a woman if they want to, as long as they don't preface it with "old".

PENIS CHARMING....where are you?

Even tho I was a co-instigator of this question, I'm a little iffy on what my answer might be. Here's what comes to me now:

I found my first grey hair on my 24th birthday, but that was more about knowing I was an adult

There was a moment in my early 20's where I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I just knew, at that moment, I was no longer a girl. It didn't "happen" then - I mean that was the awareness. It was just the look on my face. Hard to explain but I can still picture it (and the cool Red/White suit I was wearing, lol )

Also: becoming a mom - being pregnant and then a moment when I held my son and kissed him on his fuzzy little newborn forehead.

That's it for now...

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

When I came home after my first year in college. I had "blossomed" during that year, and I walked in the house and said, "Hi dad!" and he did a double take. From that moment on, he has treated me different, talked to me different. I knew I wasn't a little girl any more.

I think i knew for sure when my husband died. I found a strength beyond anything I had ever known or even seen. In the midst of all the other wacky emotions...there was something empowering about having to 'take charge' of what was left of my family and survive my own grief all at the same time. I might have doubted it befor that...but after? i KNEW.

When my own mother died. She was such a strong woman, creative and passionate, with a presence. People admired her, and I think even feared her a little, because she stood firm and had the courage of her convictions. Also a hellatious temper. When I think back on her life, she was really pretty amazing. I was never able to break free of her shadow while she was alive, but when she died, I began to realize that it was nature's way of giving me my time. I can't say that I did it overnight, but gradually I've become a woman in my own right, not imitating her but incorporating her good qualities into my own way of being; shining my own light on the world.

I knew I was a woman when…

I kissed a boy for the first time.

I went to my first dance.

I punched my older brother and he went crying to our parents like a big pussy.

I learned how to turn cartwheels.

my father told me my goal in life was to marry.

my mother told me about a woman’s monthly visitor.

I gave birth.

I bought a car all on my own for the first time.

I got a divorce.

I look at babies and I smile and cry at the same time.

I finally had enough experience and education to negotiate a good job offer.

I heard Andrea Bocelli sing and it brought tears to my eyes.

I made love with a man I was in love with.

I figured out I could hold my own in almost any situation.

I realized the older I get, the less I know & I kinda like it that way.

When I learned it was up to me to be the master of my own destiny. When I learned I alone was responsbile for my happiness.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

_____when I got my "friend" at 9.
_____when boys snapped my bra, and stared at my woman like boobs in 6th grade.
_____when I went to my first boy/girl party,played spin the bottle, and made out with a boy in the closet.
_____when I no longer fit in "girls clothes", and men started looking at me different cuz I had curves.

There were 2 questions here for me ..one was when did I recognise I was treated differently because I was a woman and that would have been when I got married first. In Ireland woman who got married were expected to give up their jobs...leave work. The law to compel them to do this had been removed but the expectation was still there. I felt this was very unfair and stayed on....and as more of us did that so it became the norm.

Now when did I feel like a woman....when did I know that being a woman was something to be proud of....know that the strengths I had as a woman were immeasurable.....recently ....and I'm having such fun since then ....lol
