Femininity is not only a look, but an energy, a feeling and a lifestyle. Many black women understand the resilient approach to femininity, but don’t realize the strength and power within the softer side. The following tips will help hone your more traditional, ladylike qualities to enrich your life in ways you’ve never imagined.
Please proceed with an open mind and a willingness to transform.
THE FEEL OF FEMININITY
Be a Chameleon
It’s no secret that black women face unique challenges in the world that don’t give us the privilege of being vulnerable or carefree. It’s easy to get caught up in feminism, Black Lives Matter and all of the other forms of social justice that make your life feel more meaningful. You almost feel like an unproductive failure if you’re relaxing instead of fighting for a cause. But, what if I told you that you can do both? And often? Before going on a date, attending a cocktail party or enjoying good company, leave the politics at the door. Give yourself permission to live in the moment and retire the activism for a while. You can always pick it up again later.
Healthiness is Happiness
When was your last workout? What about your last doctors visit? Have you been eating your fruits and veggies? Staying healthy and knowing your health status makes you feel great, improves your peace of mind and helps boost your femininity. A balanced diet and an ideal body weight will make you feel more comfortable with expressing your soft side. Take care of your temple and it will take care of you.
