Man I feel like a woman

When a woman says do whatever you want, do not do whatever you want. 

I think its pretty universal. That men see women as complex alien beings that they will never even be able to begin to comprehend. 

When a woman says, "I'm fine!" she is most certainly not fine. 

Women rarely say what they mean. 

Women hardly say what they want. 

Men, can I let you in on a secret... we are just as confused about it all as you are!

We are hormonal and indecisive and needy and independent and stubborn and giddy and broken and creative and beautiful and angry and compassionate all rolled up into one human being.

And it is completely possible for us to feel all of these emotions at the exact same time. While I have heard that it is possible for men to be thinking of absolutely nothing.. How can you think of nothing?

Women are unique creatures as a species as well as individuals. 

But in the famous words of Mel Gibson, What do women want? (And you don't even need to shave your legs to find out!)

*Someone to listen
Look guys, we know, you are the knight in shining armor and you are genetically programmed to save the princess from the dragon. And trust me, there will come a time in every girls life when she will desire someone to rescue her... flat tires for example. But mostly, we don't need you to fix it, or tell us that we are being irrational for feeling the way we do. We don't need you to pick sides. We don't need to you to tell us aren't allowed to run that person over with a car. We know that! But sometimes we need to be angry, or sad or happy. We need cry and laugh and feel free to do so without being judged. I think all women need someone who will listen.

Women need passion in their lives. I am not talking about the romantic kind. Women need to be passionate about something. To feel as if our lives have meaning. A reason to wake up every morning. Lots of things can be a woman's passion: family, ministry, work, volunteering, friends.. anything really. A life without passion is no life at all. Because here is the deal, as a woman, every once in a while, there is gonna be a day when we feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. And when that day comes, we might just want to go hide under the covers until we feel better. Moments like this is when our passions will keep us from retreating and give us reason to keep fighting. 
"The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy"-Yves Saint-Laurent

Does this really need explaining? Everyone needs hope. Without hope, we perish. 

*To be pursued
I don't care how unromantic a woman is, everyone woman desires to be pursued in her own way. Personally, expensive jewelry is not my thing. But plan a picnic or take me on a coffee date and I feel like the luckiest woman in the world. I feel most loved and pursued when I spend quality time with the ones I love. Women don't only need to be pursued by their significant others, but by their friends. Ever have one of those friends that expected you to do all the calling and all the planning? It gets old really fast. Women need to pursue each other in their friendships. 

*To be herself
When a woman is comfortable in her own skin, there is no limit to what she can accomplish. Sadly we live in a world that tries to tell women they need to look, act, be a certain way. When we refuse to be the women that God created us to be, we are mocking the masterpiece that he created. You aren't perfect. But you are fearfully and wonderfully made. So BeYOUtiful!

To love and be loved in return is one of the most powerful things in the world. Love really can change the world.

This is by no means and extensive list. Women need to laugh and be appreciated and feel beautiful. I would love it if you would add to my list. Tell me what you as a women want/need. 

Being a woman is confusing and wonderful. Be proud of who you are! God created a woman to accomplish things that men cannot. That is powerful. Don't be ashamed of your femininity, own it. Be graceful and powerful. Be proud and courageous. Be daring, Be bold, Be a woman! 

Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.- Nora Ephron

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
