Today I’m in the mood for a light-hearted post. You know something that is easy to write and doesn't put too much
pressure on you as a reader. Yes, you can say a post that lets me off the hook
But seriously tell me what do you
Well, I seriously hope you nodded
for the first!
So the post today is actually an
idea that took shape from those 71 awesome templates for blog posts published in
yesterday. With every intent of ticking each of them off my list during the
course of the Pro-Blogger Challenge
, today I begin with this - ‘5 qualities
every woman should have.’
Hope the topic interests you. If
yes, then shall we proceed?
I know, I
know I was going for an easy going post. Trust me it still is. Play along, will
you? So as I was saying self-respect is something every woman should possess
and guard fiercely. Often women compromise either to maintain peace and
stability at home or in relationships. While all that is admirable, I think a
line needs to be drawn. And I call that line ‘Self Respect’. No woman should
have to lead a life at the expense of her dignity, her pride. And thus
self-respect is something that each and every one of us must own and protect.
I think this one
quality that is absolutely essential for a woman. As clichéd as it sounds trust
me it is crucial. But that doesn't mean that she should be the epitome of
sacrifice. No Sir. A woman should be compassionate towards herself. She needs
to recognize and believe that she deserves and must have a chance at happiness
as much as the person next to her. So that is the second of the five must haves
for a woman.
Life without it
is pointless. Truly. But I’m talking about zeal for something other than
relationships you know. Passion about reading, writing or travelling maybe? Could
be anything but every woman must have that one obsession that gives layers to
her as a person. That makes her happy. I guess this is applicable to every
human being as such but since this post is about women let’s focus only on that
aspect. So yes you, you the beautiful woman reading this, what is your passion?
Do you have one?
'Her life, her choice. No guilt trips necessary!'
No I’m not
talking about not fearing the dark or the dangers that lurk in every nook and
corner. I’m talking about doing what you want to do in spite of your fears. As
hard as it may be and as scared as you may be, you need to take every step
possible against oppression of any kind. You need to stand up to anything that
tries to suffocate you. It could be your work, your family. Anything! So this
strength, this courage in spite of apprehensions is what I think each women
must possess. Nobody said life would be easy but then what are we if not able
to push ahead despite the trepidations!
this is slightly controversial but hear me out. Women, well most of them, have
this penchant to over compensate when they decide to do something for
themselves. Almost as if they are guilty of following their dreams. I don’t
know why this tendency exists or why is this expected from a woman. But I’ve realized
that for a female it is must that she has an unapologetic attitude towards her
choices in life. It’s simple. Her life, her choice. No guilt trips necessary!
So these were the five qualities I
feel every woman should have. What do you think? Please share. Would love to
read your view.
PS: These are many qualities that a woman or in fact any individual must have. I just restricted myself to 5 :)
