My latest Facebook live broadcast was about femininity so hereby I share the summary of this #livePLUS in English below.
I am a firm believer that femininity is genetically coded to us, regardless of our sex. This is however only a small part of the big picture as features, patterns we learn and develop weigh in more when it comes to determine whether you are feminine or not. We all bring some patterns from our childhood, watching our mom how she was or wasn’t loved, how our father showed or not the respect. And then there is the part we learn through the journey of self-awareness and becoming conscious about ourselves.
I love how the iconic Sophia Loren said it: „The woman who believes in her own beauty is the one who can convince the others about it.”. So again here we are, becoming aware of your own beauty. The woman who knows who she is, what is her worth, who is confident but not in the pursuit of perfectionism, she will be the most feminine one. The one who does not compete with the other women as she knows that femininity is not a race, we all have that shine within.
While men make femininity dependent on outter features as look or voice, women pay more attention to behaviour and gestures. A feminine woman acts always with style and there is some soft airness around her.
A lot of people say that a woman can only feel completely as a real woman when she is next to a real man, however I can not agree with this saying. Your worth or who you are or how feminine you are does not depend on another person since it is entirely about you. You are in a certain, unique way so it is time to tap into that and stop waiting for someone else to switch on that light. This is YOUR job to do, just as getting to know yourself, accepting and loving yourself, not anyone else’s …
Femininity has no age so the „I’m too old to do this” or on the contrary, „I’m too young” sentences seem like phrases to hide our inner fears and taboos. Of course every age has a different way of beauty and femininity but embracing your age is not impossible, take actress Helen Mirren as the perfect example.
Safe to say, femininity is way beyond makeup and clothes as our charisma plays a much more important role, together with the learn patterns and such as, it can be learnt and developed.
Next week another exciting topic waits for us to discuss within the weekly #livePLUS on my Facebook page.
