Positive Quote About Being a Woman

Pin This Positive Quote For a Daily Pick-Me-Up


Amelia Olson's beautiful quote about womanhood has been floating around the Internet for years. Sadly, most of the time it's been wrongly attributed to Zooey Deschanel, the founder of hellogiggles where the quote was originally posted. Because we love the quote so much (and to get the ball rolling in the right direction), we're sharing the pin-worthy message of positivity — with the correct attribution — as a much-needed reminder that we shouldn't be apologetic about being women and, you know, feeling things. Pass it on!

"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh'ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy-washy. Blah blah. Don't let someone steal your tenderness. Don't allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it's a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all — look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love."
