THE BAD GIRL....."Today's Woman" is All Worn Out......But The Bad Girl Isn't......

Women today especially are trying to be full time Moms, a pleasing wife, go to school part time to full time, get to the gym, grocery shopping, house cleaning, laundry, and a people pleaser all at the same time……No wonder they are exhausted….They simply cannot say “NO….”

“No” to what is not good for them. Overload is not good for them or for anyone. Overload leads to burnout and burnout leads to unhealthy situations including poor health, poor relationships, accidents, and simply an unhappy life….

In “Grandma’s Days” it seemed that she wasn’t all that exhausted. Sure Grandma had to do a lot of work we don’t have to do now a days….but Grandma was mainly at home and created her own time schedule for the most part…She could take breaks during the day….She didn’t have all the demands and distractions that the Modern woman has now a days….Today’s modern woman seems to be trying to do it all and be it all….Something simply has got to give…..I wonder what Grandma would think of Today's Woman....

When we give up the idea of trying to do everything….trying to be it all…I believe that is when we become a better person…..When we can slow down….Rest a bit more….Have some fun….Lighten our load of responsibilities….Not take on so much….Take unnecessary things off of our plate…..Not try to keep up with the neighbors……Not try to be perfect…..Yes….be a lot better to ourselves by doing less….Less can often be More…..

I tend to like less choices in life….Maybe that makes me unusual. Less choices seem to me that I enjoy things more….I don’t like All You Can Eat Buffets…First, I tend to overeat, rush my meal for fear of getting too full before I get my money’s worth, and simply by having too much selection I don’t seem to pay attention to each thing I eat like I normally would…..I feel we often have too many selections and feel obligated to participate in all of them….

Choices are given to us for a reason….To choose between them….Not to do all of them….Today’s woman seems to want to take on every choice and not leave anything for another day…..Today’s woman is mainly worn out….exhausted….. and frazzled……

Bad Girls are really not bad…..They have simply refused to exhaust themselves for everything and everyone….They have chosen to take care of themselves…..They wear the title Bad Girl with honor and respect……

Having said all of this……I think I will go back and take a nap……or better yet, put on my high heels and mini skirt…It is fun being a “Bad Girl…”
