Our Anthem

by Hillary Tijerina

This Is A Moment To Pause.
To Be Fully Present With The Self.

To Create & Take The Space For Self Reflection,
Self Love, and Caring for Ourselves

We are both/and. 


Both strong and tender.

Bold and gentle.

Fierce and kind.


We define beauty for ourselves. 


Beauty is found in self acceptance. 

It is not beholden to perfection,

Or set apart for the few.


It is etched in everything—


Every being.


May we make this place better
for our community of women 

And learn to lean on and stand strong
for those that hold our memories.


Showing up together is our practice.

Showing up together is our power.


We will honor the daily practice of becoming

And belonging to ourselves. 


We are worthy, you are worthy,

I am worthy of beauty. 


This is our moment to pause
