Womanly Words Of Wisdom: Zooey Deschanel

Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness.

Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things.

Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you.

All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.

  1. Thanks Faith. Well said Zooey! I always liked her anyway. Zooey always comes across as quite likeable on TV.

      1. Hey some black women like being really cutesy and ditsy too: ) LOL In fact black women are like 50 years overdue for a huge bout of ‘cutesy-ness’ for real!

        Cutesy-ness may help us gain empathy from other people and hopefully from among other BW.

  2. I love this quote! I think I'm going to use this as something to pep myself up when I get down. It's very feminine.

  3. How beautiful! Thank you for sharing this. Vulnerability is something I have gotten so accustomed to suppressing that I could use the occasional lovely reminder. Thanks again! 🙂
