words from wise women...

I don't have a lot of time for a blog post right now because life is crazy busy. As I know it is for all of YOU lovey dolls. So, instead of trying to come up with my own words of wisdom, I decided to let some of the 'greats' do the talking for me.

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
~Marilyn Monroe

“Good is towing the line, being behaved, being quiet, being passive, fitting in, being liked, and great is being messy, having a belly, speaking your mind, standing up for what you believe in, fighting for another paradigm, not letting people talk you out of what you know to be true."
~Eve Ensler

"My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment."
~Oprah Winfrey

"The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off."
~Gloria Steinem

"To show your true ability is always, in a sense, to surpass the limits of your ability, to go a little beyond them: to dare, to seek, to invent; it is at such a moment that new talents are revealed, discovered, and realized."
~Simone de Beauvoir

I love these women. I love the paths that they have cleared for OUR generation. I love that they make me realize how powerful we as women truly are...
