I am woman, hear me roar
The above image is a take on the classic 1972 Helen Reddy song "I am woman" I recently discovered it on a wander round Youtube. It speaks to me on so many levels and I can understand why it became an anthem for women's rights throughout the seventies.
But it's the chorus that really resonates with me this week.
Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
Sometimes I believe that I can do anything. In the last couple of weeks I've run for my club, I've learned to cycle with SPD pedals (not learned to stop yet without falling over though!!), I've been out for an 8 mile run (my longest run in 9 years) and realised a teenage ambition by becoming a biker chick!
Oh yes, I am woman! Tired but happy :-)
