These questions range in a broad spectrum.
Why am I here? What is my purpose? Am I doing all that I should and could be? Women from all walks of life want to know the answers to these questions because deep in their hearts they know that life is more than just being a housewife and being a mother and even working in corporate America.
Knowing who you are and why you are here comes first by building a relationship with the one who created you, the lord.

Before we began let's define a few words.
The first word is woman and this word is defined as an adult human being.
Our second word is womanhood.

Also it relates to position or a condition of being in a stage or form, as of structure, growth, or development.

From the time we are born we often have other people in our lives whether it is our mother,father,grandparents or someone in our circle of influence that is already dreaming and planning our lives for us.
At times this that can be a blessing and at other times it can be a burden.
So often we give up on our own dreams to take care of everyone else first.
Do not misunderstand what is being said because it is awesome to serve others.
It just shows you are dedicated to helping others make their mark, although while helping others you watch your dreams slowly fall to the ground and die.
There is plenty of room to be able to help others while achieving your own place in this life.
A life that when it is full it will often produce abundance and reap tremendous rewards.
