About eight years ago, I ran across Patricia Lynn Reilly’s poem “Imagine a Woman” and it so resonated with me. At the time, I was exploring what it meant to be a woman and further exploring the whole idea of the Divine Feminine. I encourage you to click on the link and go and read her poem. It is outstanding. To be honest, I am saving my pennies right now till I can afford to become a facilitator as Ms Riley has created a wonderful “industry” around her poem.
As I contemplated her writing, those many years ago, I wrote my own mission for myself, as a woman:
My Life Mission
To be a woman who loves her life and whose happiness and laughter is contagious.
To share the wisdom I have gained on my journey in a meaningful way.
To communicate, through my life and my writing, that you can grow up,
without nurture or love and consciously build a rich and exciting life.
To be a woman who honours her self and the Creator who gave her breath.
To be a woman who values her self, her spirituality and her dreams
as well as her circle of friends, family and allies.
To be a seeker of truth and wisdom and to die with questions still in me.
To be a woman who lives out her life with a mate who rejoices in the amazing woman I am
and who allows me entrance into his heart.
To be a woman who is as fiercely honest as she is loyal and who stands
in her truth with both grace and pride.
To be a woman who loves and is loved because it is in loving and being loved
that we are most fully human and closest to The Divine.
To be a woman The Divine rejoices in.
To be a woman who, at the end of her days, enters into God’s presence to hear the words
“I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome home.”
