Strong Women


A strong woman is one who is able to smile this morning like she wasn’t crying last night.

Strong women

Fisherwoman

A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
                                                           _Eleanor Roosevelt

It takes a strong woman, to drop everything, go through her phone, send one final text, delete his number, burn the letters & unwanted memories, and say I WON’T stress, cry, or blame myself anymore, & lets go.

    • The last line? Just loved that quote. The act needs real courage.
      And she is our meenkari – just one from the community of strong women who slog all day while (most o)f the men slug at home.

  13. Bindu….I love your photos of this lovely woman. What a beautiful face!
    Your words, along with Eleanor Roosevelt’s are a perfect combination.
    Women are strong; at times we find we can handle things that we thought we’d never be able to. We have an inner strength that is powerful. And we handle tough jobs with class.
    Great post and thanks for the reminder. I sometimes forget until my tea bag is in that water! ;)

  16. This is a really inspiring post. You bring words and pictures to being strong. The portrait of the strong woman is wonderful. It shows her strong character and personality.

  17. Bindu, your post called to mind one of my favorite poems which was written many years ago by Marge Piercy. It’s posted at this site among many other places: http://www.dragonflydream.com/Strong.html

    • Thanks for that link, Julia. It encourages me to be strong. The fisher woman in the pic (just like any other in her community) has stories of endurance to say.
