I am a different person than I was yesterday. I have done something today that is so new to my existence that it has suffused me with power.

I left my house as usual. Wondering at the beauty of the day and grateful I had the time to meander my way to the theater. I leave my complex and turn onto the street. My legs already feeling the exhilaration of the movement. The strength spreads through my body changing it and growing with it. I make another turn and am met with an unseen force. Resistance like I have never known. My path nearly blocked I force myself onward. I came closer and closer to a point of no return, my strength lessening against this force. My mind searched for a solution, an alternate path. There was none. Until….I changed gears. Yes, my mind wrapped itself into a solution. Not one of nature but of woman. I stand before the world a changed woman. No mere wind will halt my path to a movie ever again I tell you.

Rejoice with me my sisters for I am strong. I am invincible. I am woman.
