Unmarried Woman

It's been a while since my last post.. today i want to share about "Unmarried Woman".. I think maybe i can be that woman too, knowing I'm still single at the mid 20's.. but let's just say.. every women having insecurity feeling about this statement. Yet life doesn't always bring this to every girl.. some are happily married sooner than most of us.. some married and ends up crying some just decide not to involve with this sacred marriage life.

There are a lot of article about why woman can't find her true love or a suggestion event a tips on how to find the one..but i guess no one should bother with those kind of article.. Busy read 'em makes us forget who we really are. The best suggestion is to accept every situation with an open heart knowing that we are a living creature ..born.. to have a destiny.. I believe every woman have their own path and God plan our life more than just to find the right husband.

Let's go back a few years ago when a movie title "Mona Lisa Smile" hit the theater. I watch the movie with my girls form University. The movie was finished produced at 2003. It was directed by Mike Newell, written by Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal, and starring Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Julia Stiles.

Mona Lisa Smile tells the story of Katherine Ann Watson (played by Julia Roberts), a teacher who studied at UCLA graduate school who leaves her boyfriend behind in Los Angeles, to teach at Wellesley College, a conservative women's private liberal arts college in Massachusetts, United States in 1953. To complete the story, the movie bring us to visit each life of the student, portraying the women life on that era. Era where women are suppose to cook and not to get higher education nor speak to man at the diplomatic table. The scene is narrated by one of Watson student, named Betty, who dedicates her last editorial to Watson, explicitly stating that Watson is "an extraordinary woman" and an individual who "seeks truth beyond tradition, beyond definition, beyond the image."

This story inspire me much to be the true-self without being driven by circumstances and statement that come and go in our life. To be the strong woman to face everything in life with faith and belief. It's not about feminism's about appreciating woman as a creature as a human that has destiny and goal behind her softness and grace.
