Have you looked in the mirror lately? I try not to for very long. When I do, I find myself wondering, "Where is that bright, intelligent, stylish, put-together, fun loving, energetic woman that I used to know so well?" SHE is in hiding. I don't know when she'll  decide to come out, but I have seen her peeking around the corner a few times lately. Why is it so difficult to be who we were, and who we have become? Mothers! Why can't we have the best of both "worlds"? I guess for the majority of us, we don't feel we have the time or the money(mostly the energy) to maintain who we were originally. So, we make a choice between the two. I'm  getting tired of being put into a box. Always being categorized. Unfortunately, we are all guilty of defining ourselves so narrowly, as well as other women. I think we are so wrapped up in our busy lives, that it becomes very easy to distance ourselves from one another and make snap judgments. When all is said and done, whether we are single mothers, married with children, grandmothers raising grandchildren, working or not working, putting off family for career......at the end of the day, we're all women, and we're all tired! We're just taking different paths to get to the same destination. We all want the same things, Success, Happiness, and even some Peace. This external, and internal battle(really our insecurity) that we have over "working women" and "stay at home moms" needs to end. Neither is better, or smarter. We should be supporting one another! What an amazing club to be a part of! The club of WOMEN. What a powerful sorority! If nothing else, I hope this Blog allows a dialogue for all women to express their thoughts after an entire day of interaction and conversation with toddlers, disgruntled employees and/or customers, self-important bosses,  insensitive husbands and insane relatives. Lets talk everything, from potty training to politics. Why, you ask? Because we can.
