Phenomenal woman, that's me

“I say, it’s in the reach of my arms, the span of my hips, the stride of my step, the curl of my lips. I’m a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that’s me.”

Maya Angelou

We have, over the past 7 years, seen a lot of women cross our threshold at Hip Circle. It is truly awesome to me that I can say without hesitation that each one – teachers and students alike – can be described by this quote from Maya Angelou.

Look around you. Really SEE the women surrounding you at this moment in time. Notice how they’re phenomenal and, for extra credit, tell them. It’s so easy to forget how awesome we are in the face of all we live through every day. Sometimes we need to hear how amazing we are from someone else’s point of view to get our INTERNAL dialog back on track.

Say it with me: I’m a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that’s me.
