Celebrating a Woman’s World

I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner I’m a saint…….
I’m a little bit of everything all rolled into one. (Alanis Morissette)

We are very complex creatures, so knowing this we should just to pause and listen. Don’t assume anything you think you know about women. Stop and wonder, because you will never fathom the depths of the mystery you find before you.

Wildly complex we have so many different faces and roles within the world, that sometimes we can’t fathom ourselves. It took me years to figure out it was alright to be a devil as well as an angel, that I didn’t always have to be nice and that sometimes it was good to put myself first and be selfish! It sounds simple, but we are so conditioned that these simple ideas become complex to embody.

Anything we see in another woman lies within us also. All of us have all of these parts within, and sometimes it’s good to let the less well-known ones out to play 🙂 We have the power of a Goddess and the fragility of a new-born babe all wrapped up in one package. We are awesome!

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home with my husband, my son and a collection of cats and dogs. I am forever snapping shots of things which catch my eye. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist, and run the Maggies Highlands Cancer Centre, in Inverness, Scotland.
