Remember this movie by Steve Martin ,Father of the Bride ,it had a sequel to it….i cried at the end of both movies and every time i watch repeats i cry too.
Then when i started reading Danielle Steel Novels in my pre teens, it was to find myself in tears whenever any character in the book died .
I love going to weddings, gushing over newborns and rubbing my cheek against my husbands beard.
And when i meet a girlfriend(s) for lunch or coffee it is total bliss because we talk for hours!
Things men do not understand.
Well, men need not wonder any more because that is how little girls and not so little girls are and we meant to be.
A friend allowed me to borrow her book ,Bringing up Girls by James Dobson .
The book ended up bringing me to understanding and and acceptance of myself just as i am.
Like the way my brain is wired right from conception is astounding.
Female brains have been designed in a way that is very different from men’s.
In the book Dr Dobson who a former professor of Paediatrics at the University of Southern California school of medicine says that a girls corpus callosum,the massive rope of fibres that connects the right and left hemispheres of the brain is 25% larger than a males.
A womans brain is like a revved up Harley Davidson engine ,we do not have a turn off button.
We never seem to stop thinking.
Sometimes I go to bed thinking about 20 things i need to do and the next morning i just pick up my thoughts from where i left off.
See why we are so good at multi tasking.
And we seem to never stop talking.
We do love to talk and we express ourselves more than men.
The right hemisphere of our brain processes emotion and the left is where language is focused.
And the connection between the two is like a super highway,it is the reason we communciate better as well as feel emotion more and express ourselves more than
We are good at knowing things without exactly knowing why, picking up subtle cues in social interactions and cannot even explain how .
It is great to be a woman.
Women derive so much pleasure from conversations with other women , think about all the talk shows that have thrived on this need to communicate .
Men can attest to this because when a woman runs into a friend what was supposed to be a brief hello turns into a recap of the past week … in detail.
Social media is also a great example……the need to connect ,share and communicate is so innate in us we dominate every social media network.
Yes,it is alright to have a female brain and to celebrate the unique and beautiful way we have been created and to leave the world a better place for the next generation.
I absolutely love being a woman.
And if you missed it,here is my Father’s day post.
Share in the comments sections the things you love about being a woman.
