One of the most radical acts we can do on the planet right now as women is worship self-care.
To cultivate self love.
To stand in our worth, with fierce divinity.
Throw yourself heart first into the hurricane of magnetic radiance.
Sleeping naked with your limbs spread out like a star fish is lady like.
Throwing your finger in the air when you get cat called out of a car window is lady like.
Telling someone to go fuck themselves out of self respect and knowing your worth is lady like.
Telling a man to get out of your heart if he no longer immerses himself in the entirety of your heart, and the fire that is held within you is lady like.
Making love to yourself every single night is lady like.
Using no as a full sentence is lady like.
Chasing horizons at dawn down highways that stretch into infinity in the middle of nowhere while wearing nothing but boots, ripped shorts, a lace bralette, dirt smothering your legs while you hold a bottle of whisky in one hand and your creativity in the other with heaving lungs of euphoria is lady like.
Ripping the flesh open raw on your ass upon snow capped mountains, standing up and falling another seven times on the same bloody wound that turns your white dress into hues of scarlet blood raging because you refuse to stay on the ground and wave that flag of surrender is lady like.
Packing your bags and refusing to settle for sex that is not an explosion of raw, pure heart to heart passion is lady like.
If he does not hurt your eyes the way the sun does when you stare for that second too long but your persistence holds the better of you
if he does not suffocate your soul with warmth the way fire warms the tips of your fingers in subzero temperatures
if you breathe in the universe and do not taste only him
if you do not come out dripping one another
if you do not want to make a home inside of his mind first and body second
walk away. Because that is lady like.
So go lie naked in bed like a star fish and take up space.
Kiss the empty spaces between your own bones like the divine goddess that you are.
Roar in your divinity and be your own fuck yes.
