Today’s prompt was to pick a quotation about manhood and write about it. Well, I can’t relate to manhood so I tried to look up quotations on womanhood. Ironically, many lists of quotations about womanhood are dominated by things men have said. Go figure. After searching, I found one that finally spoke to me:
“The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to TACKLE THE MOTHERFUCKING SHIT OUT OF IT.” -Cheryl Strayed
Life is a wild ride. We don’t have time to ‘act’ feminine, or manly, to seduce it. We have to take what we have right now and use what we’ve got to go after what we want. No one in adult life is going to tell you what you want or how to get it (unless you stay up too late watching infomercials). Its up to you to decide, up to you to make the life of your dreams.
I chose this quotation because I’m still resonating with #womanup2016. This year is about bravely chasing my dream life. It won’t be easy, but I’m sure I can catch it!
