A Strong Woman is a Beautiful Woman

A Strong Woman is a Powerful Woman

A Strong Woman is a Powerful Woman

By in Inspiration, Lifestyle | 26 comments

A strong woman is a powerful woman. Why? First of all, let’s look at the definition of ‘strong’ to find out. The first thing that may come to your mind is ‘Physically powerful.’ However, there’s another definition in the dictionary which is, ‘Having or showing ability or achievement in a specified field‘. That’s what I am going to focus on.

I class myself as a strong woman. That’s because I have had to deal with some major challenges in my life. Instead of those experiences breaking me, they made me strong. I was determined to fight my way through because of my girls. Not only did I develop unusual emotional strength, I also learned how to fight negative thoughts that wanted to drag me down.

Some of those negative thoughts were:

  • I can’t go on.
  • I can’t deal with this.
  • I wish I was dead.
  • Life is too hard.
  • I just want to go to sleep and not wake up.
  • I don’t want to talk to anyone.
  • I want to be left alone.

And the list went on… But guess what? I knew that I couldn’t give up because my daughters depended on me. Their love helped make me a strong woman. Plus I am a fighter.

The reason for this post is to encourage you. I want to tell you that you too are a strong woman. I’ve got some quotes to share with you to motivate you.

  • A strong woman

Pain is something that can cut deep into your soul. I know! I’ve been there. In 2000 I had to deal with the deaths of three people I loved. They died within the space of nine months. The pain was extremely bad because those deaths were untimely. But through that pain, I became a strong woman.

Strong Woman quote. 1jpg

  • A real woman

If you’ve been knocked by love and heartaches and bounced back, you’re a real woman! You know how to dust yourself off and start all over again. It’s great when you’re able to get back on track. Especially when you learn from whatever it was that knocked you down.

Strong Woman quote. 6jpg

  • A prayerful woman

Praying has been my lifeline. It’s good to pour out your troubles and forget them. Praying isn’t just about getting down on your knees with your hands clasped. I pray by simply talking to God. I always get a sense of peace afterward. And He does answer prayers.

Strong Woman quote

  • A successful woman

A successful woman will use her problems as stepping-stones to get to where she wants to go. She doesn’t see them as setbacks but as opportunities for growth. Have you had people laugh at you and tell you that your idea is stupid? Or that you will never make it? Or why do you want to give up your job to pursue a silly dream?

Negative remarks will make a strong woman determined to become a successful woman. My favourite quote is, “Winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win.”

For every brick that’s thrown at you, use them to build your dreams. Picture the life you want, set goals and work towards achieving a better future. You can do it. I’m doing it!

Strong Woman quote. 4jpg

 

  • A supportive wife

Behind every successful man is a great woman. A wife is her husband’s backbone. She is the one that tolerates him, cooks for him, counsels him, encourages him, nurses him, soothes him, loves him, mothers him and is there for him when he needs her.

Strong Woman quote. 3jpg

  • A virtuous woman

Having a high moral standard and living according to that standard will set you apart from the rest. People will respect you because of your lifestyle. A virtuous woman disciplines her children with wisdom and care, she looks after her health and body, serves her husband, family and friends, radiates warmth and love and spends wisely. Those are just some of the qualities of a virtuous woman.

Strong Woman quote. 5jpg

  • A woman with purpose

Confidence will make you walk with purpose. When you’ve gone through the storms of life and come out in one piece, your confidence will grow. You’re confident because you know your strengths and your values. Because you know your strengths, you won’t give up or give in. People will admire you for who you are.

Strong Woman quote. 7

A strong woman is a force to be reckoned with. You know about the dark side of life. You’ve been through it and come out on the other side. The roller coaster ride of life has toughened you, molded you and refined you into the woman you are now.

  1. Thank you for beautfifully pouring your heart out. I think every single person has dealt with a harsh reality at some point. And sometimes, we emerge stronger.

    My husband and were both unemployed (at the same time) and we were forced to search our souls and find out what really wanted to do.

    • It’s good to hear from you again Heather. I strongly believe that problems can make you stronger. They force you to find a solution and work towards solving the problem.

      But unfortunately, some people will allow the problem to get on top of them and crush them. Instead of fighting, they give up. I know a few people like that. One person who couldn’t handle problems, eventually took his life. It’s sad!

      Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

  2. Junie!

    Were you writing this for me or for both of us?

    Is it possible to just meet someone and feel like you’ve known each other for ever?
    We haven’t even met yet and you so remind me of my kid sister who fondly says we are “partners in crime” (not as in criminal though just woman power stuff)!

    Yesterday I started my Gardener’s tale on my blog and although I didn’t write half as much nor as well as you – I am more than thrilled to share this “Follow up” (if you don’t mind my claiming your words of wisdom and prophecy)!

    This isn’t my blog or space alone to share yet another story but suffice it to say that I strongly identify with the strong and powerful woman in your post!

    Thank You Junie, what more can I say – funny you posted this at 11.27pm and I read it at 5.20 pm (do strong women work such hours too?)

    • Marie, I was writing for both of us!

      I don’t know most of your story. But from what I know you are a strong woman and a fighter. That’s why we can identify with each other. We have a lot in common. We refuse to let problems drag us down. Instead, we use them as ladders to climb out of the mess. Thanks for likening me to your kid sister. 🙂

      You do write well. Don’t ever think otherwise. Like I said in my reply to your comment on my other blog yesterday, you’re a talented woman and a strong, powerful woman. Your sons must be proud of you.

      And yes, strong women work all hours of the night. Hard work will bring good rewards! 🙂

      Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Thank you for sharing your story, June!

    I’m happy to know that even with all of your losses, you realized that you have so much to give to this world!

    Every day, I feel the need to recommit to living a strong and a purposeful life. There are days where it’s rather easy to do so and days when I need to dig in and try hard.

    I appreciate you telling your story because it gives hope that there is much to get and give out of life. Thanks, June!

    • You’re welcome Jennifer.

      Sometimes it’s through our losses that we realize how much we have to give. Losing people make you reevaluate life and appreciate it more. Before I lost anyone close to me, I used to live with my head in the clouds. Life has been just about me. I wasn’t really concerned about anyone outside my close circle of family and friends. But, there’s always some good in the bad. It’s just a matter of finding it.

      Like you said, living a purposeful life is not always easy. But it adds more meaning to it. Because every achievement brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams. We all have a lot to give. And giving is so much more rewarding than receiving. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by Jennifer.

      Have a great week.

  4. Thank you for sharing that with us June. I’m so glad you had your girls because I know they were the strength that made you want to continue on.

    I think we’ve all been through some very trying times in our lives, me included. Although I didn’t have any children that I needed to be there for I knew that I couldn’t let these things hold me down. They don’t define who you are as a person and that’s what makes us so strong.

    I celebrate all the strong women out there and hope they’ll all continue to carry on.

    Thank you for sharing this message with us and I do hope you have a wonderful week.

    • Thanks for stopping by Adrienne. Yes my girls were my inspiration. 🙂

      You’re right by saying “I think we’ve all been through some very trying times in our lives, me included. I couldn’t let these things hold me down. They don’t define who you are as a person and that’s what makes us so strong.” Knowing that those things don’t control you does make you strong. You’re the one in the driving seat of your life.

      Thanks so much for your encouraging words. Strong women should be celebrated and encouraged to carry on doing whatever they do to empower them.

      I hope you have a fantastic week. 🙂

  5. Hi June,

    Just like the others have mentioned – I think your kids really played their part and helped you move out of that dull phase of your life. I know it’s never easy, and tougher still is to try to get on with your life by leaving bygones behind. The memories take time to fade, but they do eventually.

    I think time is a great healer there, and just as every cloud has a silver lining, so does ever bitter relationship that turns out to be come a blessing in disguise because it makes you so much wiser and stronger, isn’t it? Loved the apt quotes you shared 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice Thanksgiving week with your loved ones too 🙂

    • Hi Harleena,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. 🙂

      It took years for the bad memories to fade. But after they stopped affecting me, I was able to use them as lessons to learn from. And there definitely is a silver lining in every cloud. It’s just that when you’re surrounded by storm clouds it’s hard to see the sunshine. But nothing in life stays the same. Everything is subject to change. Knowing that and believing it helps to move forward.

      Happy thanksgiving week to you as well. Have a blessed one. 🙂

  6. I am not strong at all, life keeps testing me but i keep falling, i used to be strong but not anymore

    • Toini, I feel your pain. But I think you can get your strength back. Life is a challenge. All of us have to go through it. The best way to cope is to learn from every struggle you go through. See it as a lesson and try to find some good in whatever you go through. For example, after my ex husband committed suicide I had to raise our 5 year old daughter by myself. I got my strength from caring for her and loving her. I felt blessed that I had someone who looked to me for protection and love. I got strength knowing I had to be strong for my daughter. If I gave up, she would have no one to care for her. So, although it was a bad situation, I found some good out of it.

      I know your story is probably nothing like mine. All I’m saying is that life is a blessing. As long as you have life, you have the opportunity to change your circumstances. If you would like to talk to me, please email me. I would like to help in whatever way I can. My email address is miraculousladies@hotmail.co.uk.

      I would like to encourage you with my favourite quote, “Winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win.” Hang in there. Don’t let life drag you down. 🙂

  7. I have been through so much. It wasn’t easy bringing up my daughter on my own, never thought I would be alone doing that. Everyone tells me what I always wanted to build for myself is just a dream or I’ m just dreaming a fantasy. Is wanting a family and a nice home a Fantasy? Am I wasting my time wanting to be appreciated and cared about. I met someone and I am so scared that he hurts me like everyone else. I read your story and I will love to be strong again and laugh how I use to laugh and enjoy life. I can’t help but have my gaurds up all the time, I will love to be happy again!

    • Hi Liz,

      Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts. I can really identify with what you’ve said. I was married when I had my last daughter and didn’t think I was going to end up raising her alone. But I did, plus my other two older daughters. My youngest daughter is now 21 and I did it by myself. She’s a good girl, like the other two so I guess I did something right.

      Wanting a nice home and a family is not a fantasy. It’s something everyone should have. I always wanted to be a writer when I was a little girl and I took writing courses to make it possible. If you’ve got a dream, set goals and do what you have to do to make it a reality. Without dreams (some call it fantasy) how will you know what you want? Dream it and then do it. It’s possible but you have to believe you can do it. Surround yourself with people who are willing to inspire and motivate you to achieve your goals.

      It’s good that you’ve met someone. Don’t be scared about him hurting you like everyone else. Get to really know him before committing. Think positive things about your relationship. And also, your thoughts are powerful. They can actually control how you live. You can be happy and strong again. I used to go around moody all the time, then I discovered that I was in control of my emotions. If you want to laugh, just laugh. Find something to laugh about, watch a funny film, let your hair down, enjoy yourself and have fun. As adults we’re too serious. children laugh a lot and we can learn a lot from them. We take life too seriously.

      Here are two articles I wrote about happiness. Hope they help: http://www.miraculousladies.com/are-you-looking-for-some-happiness/ and http://www.miraculousladies.com/will-you-share-a-little-happiness-with-others/

      I’ve got some wonderful articles coming up soon. Please subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss out. I’m sure they will help you. 🙂

  10. I’m glad i came across this article. I’m a 27 years old single mom of 2 and expecting my 3rd child. Where do I start?…

    I been going through a lot these past couple years and still going through hard times. I’m currently unemployed, i got no support from my children’s father at all, i’m at risk of losing my place because i haven’t been able to pay my rent in a few months, anyway i’ve been going through A LOT! I don’t know what’s going to happen i just pray to God my children and i have a stable place to live and a job after i give birth so i can provide my kids. I know that all i’ve been through is just maming me stronger. Sometimes i feel hopeless and ask myself why am i going through all this, but i know that one day all this is just going to be a memory and a lesson. I do want to believe that even though this process seem to have no solution. I just want to be strong for my kids and ALWAYS be there for them.

    • Hi Katherine. Thanks for reading this blog post and leaving a comment.

      I’m not sure which country you’re living in, but if it’s the UK you should be entitled to housing benefit to help with your rent. And from my experiences, when you go through challenges, it’s hard. But, somehow things seem to have a way of working out. Every bad experience will make you stronger. Learn from them. Stay strong and focus on your children and new baby after you give birth. Keep praying that God will make a way for you to get a nice house and job to take care of your family.

      One day you will look back and wonder how you got through it all. But hang in there and keep loving your kids. Their love will help you as well. If you need someone to talk to and words of encouragement, please email me through the contact form. I will reply.

      Take care of yourself and your kids. Have a good weekend. 🙂

      • Wow! Thank you so much for taking out of your time to reply to my comment. I live in the US, Massachusetts. Where i live they do give help but it’s kind of hard getting it.

        I been through other things in life and i can say that i agree with you. All the bad things i’ve been through made me stronger and helped me see things from a different perspective. I’m trying my best to stay positive about the situation for my kids since i’m mom and dad for them. I do believe things are going to work out, i just don’t know what else i’ll have to go through and that scares me, i don’t want my kids to suffer.

        Thank you so much for your kind words and i really appreciate that you’re willing to listen/read me if i need to, that means a lot! God bless you and I hope you haven an amazing weekend as well.

        • Hi Katherine,

          You’re more than welcome. Sorry I took so long to reply to your comment. I’ve been really busy.

          I can identify with some of what you’re going through. I was a single mum for many, many years to my three daughters. I’m still single but they’ve grown up now and have left home. And yes, all the challenges made me the woman I am today. Strength comes from struggles. Just keep having hope for a better future, and keep a positive mindset.

          I am glad you responded to my comment. That means a lot to me too. I started this blog to inspire and support wonderful women like you. Together, we can make it. 🙂

          God bless you and have a great rest of the week.
