What is Womens self-esteem? Definition: A woman's experience of being capable of meeting life's challenges and the feeling of being worthy of happiness. Women who have healthy or authentic self-esteem trust their own being to be constructive, responsible, and trustworthy. It is an inner state that can be nurtured and cultivated. A Womans Self-esteem is the level that you respect and value yourself as a lovable, worthwhile woman. Where Does Self-Esteem Come From? Our self-esteem develops and evolves throughout our lives as we build an image of ourselves through our experiences with different people and activities. Experiences during our childhood play a particularly large role in the shaping of our basic self-esteem. When we were growing up, our successes (and failures) and how we were treated by the members of our immediate family, by our teachers, coaches, religious authorities, and by our peers, all contributed to the creation of our basic self-esteem.

Self-esteem through Ernestine Sheperd: BodyBuilder

Going from 20 -50 even to 70 years of age... where is it said, that, as women age, we have to stop taking care and concern of our health and our bodies?
Why do we allow our self-esteem, self-love and our confidence to be directed by outside influence?
It is no secret that in society today, we face many stereotypical challenges aside from the natural life cycles, that it does become harder and harder to feel that we have and still serve a purpose in this world.
I dedicate this post to a woman whom has taken all of those misconceptions and stereotypical ways of thinking and not only embraced the challenges but used her energies and proved them all wrong~
I would like to share with you, a special post today of an incredibly inspirational, dedicated and motivated lady~

Meet Ernestine Sheperd:....

At 75, Ernestine Shepherd is in better shape than most people, decades her junior. Up at 3 a.m. every morning, she spends her days running, lifting weights and working out.  Aside all of that, she also works as a certified personal trainer at her gym.

Feeling better than she  did at 40,”Bodybuilding champion Ernestine Shepherd shows us that ”being out of shape” as we age truly is merely an option — NOT a mandate! She is a role model not just for senior women everywhere, but for every one of us. . More of Ernestein

  1. I honestly adore women of any age who take care of their body. But recently I´ve read about women who go through a diet and regid exercise being criticized for not loving the real them instead of taking lengths just to get a good figure. A woman have answered, don´t you think we love ourselves a lot to keep it in good shape?

    That said, I especially admire women who maintain a good self esteem inspite of their age.
