Today I am grateful to know so many dedicated, smart, strong women. Men, too, but this is about women, since I am one. I used to tamp my strength and opinions down into my insides until it felt like I was hauling around wet, packed sand. No more. No more for a lot of us. Young and old, the women I know are STRONG!
Throw cancer at them and BAM. . .it’s outta here! Take their parents or spouse away before they are ready (no one is ever ready) and before long they bounce back, fully involved in their own lives, a little sadder, a little wiser and a lot stronger.
Throw a monkey wrench in their career and no problem, they’ll reinvent themselves and slide into a different career, even if it means going back to school to do so.
Drag them out of their comfort zone by a sudden move and they join every club and organization they can find to assimilate into their new lives.
These are the women I know. And admire. Every single one of them. Yes, even those of you who are screaming “bullshit” right now, claiming I can’t possibly be talking about you.
