As a woman I feel it is important to know where my strength is. And to try to avoid looking outside of myself for strength. Sometimes the most practical thing is to seek help but still we should attempt to nurture the strength that is within us, understand it... allow it to grow... I think some of us never realize we even have any of our own strength.

There was a movie I saw a long time ago about maybe four Asian women... all dealing with difficulties in their lives. I wish I could remember the name of it. It is one of the "classics" but in color, perhaps from ten or fifteen years ago? Anyway, if you pay close attention to the film you can learn a lot about finding your strength. Wish I could remember the name of it.

I remember in one scene a pig of a husband smashed his hand into a watermelon and then ripped out a fist full of the flesh as a sort of display of attitude towards his new wife. The melon symbolizing the wife's body. Ring any bells?
