The Real Woman Creed!

hugging bwomanI have been going through a summer  purging this month, so far I have given 5 extra large  plastic bags of clothing to our local community center, and major paper clean up. And  of course I absolutely must go through every piece of paper in the pile. I came across a 5X7 postcard that is beautiful, with affirmations written by Jan Phillips to support the strength, courage, and beauty in all of us.

The Real Woman Creed


I believe that within me lies an extraordinary radiance, and

I commit to letting my light loose in the world.

I believe that the source of my power and wisdom is in the center of my

being, and I commit to acting from this place of strength.

I believe that I possess an abundance of passion and creative

potential and I commit to the expression of these gifts.

I believe that the time has come to let go of old notions and unhealthy

attitudes, and I commit to re-examine what I have been told

about beauty and dismiss what insults my soul.

I believe that negative thoughts and words compromise my

well-being, and I commit to thinking and speaking

positively about myself and others.

I believe that young women are in need of positive role models, and

I commit to being an example of authenticity and self-love.

I believe in the relationship between my well-being and

the well-being of the planet, and I commit to a life of mindfulness

that regards all living things as holy and worthy of my love.

I believe it is my spiritual responsibility to care for my body

with respect, kindness and compassion, I commit to balancing

my life in such a way that my physical being is

fully expressed and nurtured.

I believe that joy is an essential part of wellness, and I commit to

removing obstacles to joy and creating a life that is full of exuberance.

I believe that a woman who loves herself is a powerful, passionate,

attractive force, and I commit, from this day forward, to loving myself

deeply and extravagantly.


So I hope my summer purging find  has reminded you how strong, courageous and beautiful you are. Here is to what we believe.
