Sheryl and Stevie

I can’t get enough of this performance of one of my favorite songs, Strong Enough, by Sheryl Crow. This particular video is of a duet with Stevie Nicks.

[There is little to say about this but to put it out there. Skip to 1:13 if you want to get right to the song.]

I read a quote the other day that said “you’ll be too much woman for every man until you meet your soulmate.” And I feel like Sheryl is essentially saying the same thing, but for a few minutes. “Just try and love me if you can – are you strong enough to be my man?”

Perhaps the one that resonates with me most is:

“When I’ve shown you
That I just don’t care
When I’m throwing punches in the air
When I’m broken down and I can’t stand
Would you be man enough to be my man?”

I am not a raging feminist (though I have no hate for those who are) but I will say that you, my dear, should not dim your beautiful self to make a man comfortable. Because there will be a man who wants every ounce of that crazy, energetic, passionate woman. Take heart, because he will come along….probably when you least expect it.
