“Well-behaved women seldom make history.” ~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
If this quote is indeed fact, I am a bad, bad and BOLD girl. I have been a fearless “alpha-female” all my life, determined to let the world hear me, see me and respect me. My mom, her mom, and her seven sisters have been the ultimate examples of what boldness who never settled for less. Each, in their own way, taught me that my interests matter, that my opinions and thoughts matter, that my concerns and fears matter, that my life matters. That I matter. Most importantly, they encouraged go after the life I wanted because I have one life to live.
With their words of wisdom and unbridled support, coupled with my “anything is possible” chutzpah, I continue to live my best life, undeterred, unmoved and unbothered and unbossed, often times making history in the process. That’s bold and badass! That’s me!
