Karen H posted a great entry recently in which she invited women to post about their awesomeness.
Too often we put ourselves down. Too often we think we are useless, not good enough, less than perfect and thus less than acceptable. Too often we demur praise, or will not praise ourselves. Often we outright hate ourselves, and much of the dominant media and various cultures around us are determined to make us feel as bad as possible, usually so that we will buy things.
In the comments to this post, I cordially invite you to tell me why you are awesome.
And she asks that you do so without self-deprecation or apology. You are allowed to be awesome in whatever ways you are awesome; you don't need to worry about whether you're the right kind of awesome or whether you're awesome enough.
If you (as Karen puts it) "identify as a woman/lady/girl/female human type of any classification," I encourage you to go post about your awesomeness. Even if it's scary.
And regardless of your gender identity, I encourage you to go read the comment thread. There are over 300 comments as I write this, and they are full of awesome.
(And before anyone starts in on arguing, please let's not have the discussion about men being awesome too. The thread is about and by women.)
