I've learned a few things from this little high heel challenge for the weekend. First, that walking in heels is really hard, which leads me to realize that being a woman can be pretty hard at times, too.
That led me to ponder on what is difficult about being a woman (it wasn't any of the things that you fellas would guess). As I finally admit I'm a grown woman and start loosening my grip on being a girl, here are some of the things I've realized about being a woman that other ladies could benefit from:
-Real women know the difference between really liking someone and being in love. If they're lucky, one day they'll get to feel both at once.
-Real women know how to change a tire themselves, even if they take offered help.
-Real women have set a future plan for themselves before a romantic partner enters the picture.
-Real women know how to look their fears in the eye and wrestle them to the ground.
-Real women will let themselves cry and be vulnerable, but know the time and place.
-Real women support other women instead of cutting them down.
-Real women know at least one defensive block.
-Real women are open to constantly reinventing themselves. And strive for improvement no matter how perfect they already are.
-Real women aren't afraid to get their heart broken. But they won't let it happen too often.
-Real women have at least one dress or skirt that makes them feel beautiful.
-Real women know they are beautiful.
And most importantly:
-Real women don't have to know how to walk in heels. But it sure does help.
