The single most important contributor to me being a “strong woman “ has been the company and conversations with women, and the opportunity to talk and be heard.
Brenne Brown talks about “strong back, soft front, wild heart”. The many layers of fabric oddments are strengthened by the many lines of random stitching, (= the talking)
I read that trees in the forest, while remaining individuals, communicate and support each other. Trees are about the strongest living thing I can think of. Women come a close second.
