I surround myself with “Unapologetically” strong women. Always. As I was thinking about this post, I realized that I have always been drawn to strong women. I think this is because I grew up with a strong mother. And my Mom instilled in me the same inner strength.
By the way, my Mom is the strongest woman I know.
There have been times when I doubted my strength. But as I’ve gotten older, I don’t doubt myself anymore. I AM strong, and make no apologies for it. Lucky for my husband, one of the things he found attractive was my inner strength. I remember him telling me that many years ago when we were first together.
My biggest unapologetically strong moment was when I decided to have my son. I had spent most of my 38 years thinking I never, ever, wanted children. There was some genetic issues in my family that I did not want to take a chance on passing onto a child.
However, my husband and I knew that we had so much love to give, and that no matter what a child of ours would be like, we knew we would love him or her. And love we do! All my fears just went to the wayside, and I had the strength I really never knew I had.
We were blessed with a healthy boy.
