The Growness...

This morning on my way to work, I was listening to Mary J.
Grown Woman is the most fun song, and I love what it's saying...
I love being a Grown Woman...
To me being grown means handling my business,
Being responsible for myself,
Not holding anyone responsible for what ails me or goes awry in my life,
Accepting my own madness,
I had some awesome role models,
I always remember the women in my life,
They handled whatever needed to be handled, while keeping their business close to their chests,
And looking awesome while doing, and enjoying life at the same time....
Grown does not mean any means...
My mom had five sisters and they were there for each other in so many ways,
They had open hearts, arms and ears when it was necessary,
But they also respected the other's right to not talk when it was mandatory,
That is my way,
I have a few confidantes,
But the women I value most are those who know when to pull you close,
Or allow you to remain removed if that is what sustains you...
No digging, prying or peeping....
That is about the Grownness,
To really grow, there are times when we have to pray about it, then work it out from a private place,
There have been times at work, online and other places,
When I have literally cringed when someone is spilling all,
I want to ask if they really know what they are doing,
However I usually mind my own grown business,
Because I know that usually that is coming from a place of neediness,
That usually goes away with maturity,
When we become real grown, we know that mostly no one can do things for us,
That while advice might work, every situation is a different one and what works for the goose,
Probably want work for the chicken...
Sometimes I ask myself what is going on that so many people remain so 'Young' in how they react to things,
And I am left to conclude that sometimes in this youth obsessed culture when we do everything we can, not to Age outwardly, that it might be the same mindset that keeps us from maturing inwardly...
Not sure, just thinking out loud...
But I would say to anyone who is hanging onto YOUNG at the cost of becoming GROWN,,,
Don't Be Skurred...
Because embracing the woman in you and owning onesself and not holding anyone accountable but that self is a wonderful, delightful way to's FREEDOM!

Love and Blessings,
