Being a woman is hard, but having these qualities makes it easier. Being a woman in this day and age is really difficult. We live in a society where women still are not fully valued and appreciated for all that they offer. Being a woman may be difficult, but there are so many reasons to be proud to be a woman and what that means.
In fact, it may be the most difficult task each of us takes on as we go through life. Science and ingenuity have revealed endless discoveries and inventions that serve as reminders that so long as you can dream it, you can create it.
And since necessity clearly is the mother of invention, what do you need to become the woman you want to be? Respect, independence, adventure, love, equality, space? An even more important question, what kind of woman do you want to become?
Become clear about that answer and then let your answer be your guide as you begin making decisions moving forward in your life. While you may not be certain how these wants will materialize, if you are clear about them, the life you seek is more likely to occur. Be clear and be able to explain to yourself why and then get busy moving forward becoming the woman you want to be.
Looks may open doors, but brains and personality take you across the threshold. I felt I had to do things, to be intelligent and develop a personality in order to be seen as attractive.
The simplest way to become successful in a particular field is to educate yourself. The formula is very clear, and it requires, effort, patience and acquiring knowledge. Notice that looks are not part of the magic recipe.

When you know what you can do, and what will enhance your life, it becomes much easier to say no to things that will not be beneficial. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.
Coming to understand yourself, liking who you discover, accepting the imperfections and celebrating and capitalizing on the strengths is exactly what a best friend who loves you unconditionally would do. Why not be that person for yourself?
Be the model to others of how you wish to be treated. When you model how you wish to be treated — being grateful, extending a genuine compliment, lending a helping hand — you give those around you courage to do the same and not be laughed at. Be able to trust and rely on yourself.
