You Are an Amazing Woman

You are an amazing woman. Many are touched by the beauty of your spirit and the kindliness of your heart. Celebrate your sparkling spirit!
God made you an amazing creation. You being YOU—profoundly, passionately, gloriously, purposefully—gives glory to God. Be who you are and be that beautifully well.
Amazing women sometimes overextend themselves. You can't be Everywoman. Be the woman God created you to be. You can't do everything or please everyone. Do what God is asking of you right now.
Be as kind to yourself as you are to others. When you are depleted, fill yourself up again. Being good to yourself is the key to rediscovering your inner goodness and recommitting to your chosen path in life.
Stress is an Achilles' heel for most women. Insert stress-busting activities into your daily routine—calming meditation, aerobic exercise, a warm tub soak, reading a novel, a soothing cup of tea and reflection.
Take time for friendship—one-on-one and together with groups—for a girls' night out or girls' weekend away. Enjoy the laughter, liveliness, rapport, and support.
