Here's What I Really Think About Women
You young mom with the tiny little baby at home...looking to find a job that will help you bring home the bacon and still be the one to raise your baby? You are the shit. And I wish I could give each and every one of you the help you need when you need it.
You older mom who loses her husband much too early in life and has to pull yourself up by the bootstraps to raise children and earn a living for the family? You are the shit.
You cancer survivor, who I think of EVERY SINGLE DAY, because you battled a horrible disease while still making sure your family still felt loved the whole time? You are the shit.
You military wife who has to let her husband go much too often and spend the whole time hoping, praying and waiting for him to come home safely? You are the shit.
You single 20-something who has absolutely no idea how free you are because you are so broke? You are the shit. (And you'll realize it when you look back on this 20 years from now.)
I read an enlightening article a while ago (I'll try to find it to share with you) about putting a picture of your 10-year-old self up in front of you and talking to it the way you would want someone to talk to a 10-year-old -- instead of the way we are all talking to ourselves in our heads. I think it's such a brilliant idea and think it's something we should all do.
You are amazing. Please believe it and start living like it. You deserve nothing less.
Because you are the shit.
