Judah & the Lion – Suit and Jacket
ain’t trading my youth for no suit and jacket
I ain’t giving my freedom for your money and status
So don’t say I’m getting older
Cause I’ll say it when I do
With every act of self-care your authentic self gets stronger, and the fearful, critical mind gets weaker. Every act of self-care is a powerful declaration: I am on my side. I am on my side, each day I am more and more on my own side.”
– Susan Weiss Berry
Growing up I didn’t have much feminine energy present, and I really only started to understand the difference between masculine and feminine energy and qualities in the last five years. I had very strong masculine influences that shaped my identity growing up. This caused me to think that only the masculine was valuable. I ended up being surrounded by mostly men studying electrical engineering and entering the workforce in a very male-dominated field. I did fine at work and felt comfortable working with mostly men, but I was left feeling like something was missing and that I was having to put on a façade every day.
Since then, through my journey of self-discovery and healing, I was lucky enough to experience the beauty that lies within what is known as the softer side of our humanity. Up until that point, I had no idea what I was missing.
I’m learning more and more that I get my mojo from recognizing the value and power of feminine energy and embracing that my truest self and greatest strengths come from that space.
I appreciate my analytical mind, and I appreciate my vulnerability and emotional self even more.
Recognizing that this is where my power comes from and doing things
from a place of deep love has opened up a whole new world for me. Knowing that
I can be my most vulnerable and authentic self, be okay with being and showing that I am deeply impacted by what I see and feel around me, and holding space for and nurturing myself and others have enabled my truest self to come forth. This is where my magic and my mojo come from. Letting myself see value in feminine energy and understanding that my core values are driven from this space has empowered me to do work that is much more meaningful. I understand the process and discomfort that comes with self-discovery. Healing and holding space for transformation toward self-love and inner peace is my truest work, and this includes helping to navigate the complexities of our human selves and developing self-care that is driven from and supports self-love.
