International Women’s Day…

Woman

noun

women (plural noun)
an adult human female

 

We should all feel proud of where we come from and as women we should be incredibly proud of how far we have come.  What does it feel like to be a women in today’s society?  Clearly that depends where you are in the world.  Some countries still have a lot of catching up to do.  I am not going to go into a long winded speech about this.  All I can say is how I personally feel and as such leave you with the words sung by Nina Simone in a song called Feeling Good.  You can check out youtube yourself and see whether this song empowers you also.  All I know is; I sure feel good right now!

Feeling Good

Birds flying high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn, its a new day
It’s a new life, for me
Yeah, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life, for me
Ooooooooh, and I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River running free, you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn, its a new day
It’s a new life, for me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It’s a new dawn, its a new day
It’s a new life, for me
And I’m feeling good
