《Being a woman - pt.20》 I breathe as you do. I die as you do. I fall as you do. I rise as you do. I laugh as you do. I sob as you do. I fail as you do. I try as you do. I love as you do. I care as you do. I may break more than you. But then I revive brighter than you. For sustenance, the world needs humanity. Humanity needs humans. Humans need women to multiply. Being a women, I don't ask for any special privilege. I accept, an inhuman is too a human - a man or a woman. The creators creations were initially undivided. It's the humanity that did this, it's the humanity that will undo it. Not on favour, but for being deserving, 'she' like 'him' is no longer a mere survivor, but the fly transversing each ceiling. It's so worthy to be a part of @shespeaksforchange family. For among these heavenly souls, I feel home. - Hey everyone, this is Shaheeba, cherishing 16 years of Female Freedom.

When I first started running I struggled to get my breathing under control. I would find myself gulping air or feeling as though I couldn’t get enough in. In the early stages, I think I even felt like I was going to hyperventilate. And, there was always the stitch in my side. My running would often grind to a halt and I’d walk with my hands over my head, trying to catch my breath. I was a hot mess - literally. I realized I needed to establish a rhythm and slow my pace down until my body got used to this new activity and my lung capacity increased. One day it occurred to me to pray about my running and Philippians 4:13 came to mind - “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” That verse and prayer would lead to the mantra I would repeat over and over in my head as I ran. Two counts in “All things”, and two counts out “through Christ.” To this day this is the verse I use to help me measure my breathing, rhythm, and pace while running. It’s also one of the main verses that carries me through life. All Things Through Christ.
