The career women in their feminine, tailored suits, the not-at-all struggling artists, the best-friends-for-10-years-that-they're-practically-sisters, the fashionable mothers strolling their impeccably dressed babies, the bright-eyed college students... aren't all women just so inspiring? I'm thankful to live in a city with such unique, strong, complex individuals. Women of all shapes and minds.
Every day, in Greenwich Village or Union Square, I see women who just have that undeniably special flair for life that I admire. It's infectious. Like their smiles and walks and very existence somehow magically motivate me to seize every day and make it mine. And they don't even know that they're imparting spirit and wisdom just by living their lives and being themselves! Just by being real women, "flaws" and all. That's the best part, 'cause I'm a woman too!
