As a man, I can say comfortably that we are simple folk. We have simple common ways of thinking, actions and thought. We are the hunters and gatherers, the quiet communicators, the competitive spirits and the comforting companions. We think sensibly and act progressively. We are the backbone and the cornerstone of progress, but history will dictate, as well as the future, that we are billions of empty souls wondering aimlessly through life without the blood that makes our heart pump.
That blood with its nutrients and fortified vitamins of life is the women that gives us the guidance, confidence and strength.
- Irrational (in such a good way.? It leads to disruption, then change, then innovation)
- Comforting and protective
- Emotionally centered while always thinking outside the box
- Crazy and neurotic in a way that makes them irresistible
- Heroes without the need for recognition
- Patient to our needs
- Prepared in times of danger
- Always there with open arms
When I think about the women in my life, from infancy to adulthood, so many flash through the theater inside my head. From mothers, to sisters, to teachers, to girlfriends, to lovers, to companions, to friends, to strangers and beyond.
Each one has left something behind. ?Something meaningful that has sculpted my entire being.
Let me be the first to say, women are crazy. Crazy in the amazing, cannot stop thinking about them kind of way. ?Some in their words and others in their actions.
There isn’t a decision in my life that has not been powered by the influence of a woman. ?Think about every aspect of your life.
What does your life entail?
- Dating / Marriage / Partnership
- Arts (Writing / Photography / Film / Theater)
- Nurturing (Hospitals / Clinics / Nurses)
How many of the above bullet points in your life are heavily influenced or assisted by the hand of a woman?
I thought so.
Why then do I still continue to hear so many stories of corporate prejudice, domestic violence, divorce, social inequity, emotional withdrawal and genders divided?
I wish I knew the answer, but unfortunately, like so many of my fellow inhabitants of this earth, we are lost for a resolution.
I am going to leave you with this:
Love is the defining core of the good in humanity. ?It is a simple gesture, a warm thought, a kind act. ?It is as easy as the feel of a human touch and as lasting as the depths of the universe. ?Accept the perfection that is in women and embrace all they have to offer.
They are our reason for living and the core of our being.
When you find a woman that is beautiful inside and out and she gives herself to you in some capacity, accept, embrace and give back equally.
You will find yourself in a much better place in the end.
