Are you defiant enough?

Blogalong–Skipped Day 9 (1st day post surgery).  Day 10 today, posting this previously written draft from last Sunday or Monday, w/out photos, alas.  I hope to be back w/ “technicolor” posts tomorrow or very soon….

Thank you to everyone who has sent healing energy/ wishes/ prayers.  ”Every day in every way I am getting better better better” :)

I recently saw this quote, and it is inspiring this next post for the blogalong.

”If you have never been called a defiant, incorrigible, impossible woman… have faith… there is yet time.” – Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run with the Wolves.

I love this quote!  How about you?  Do you still care so much about what others think that you aren’t yet living authentically?  Personaly, I have been a rebel since adolescence but often hid my radicalness under a veneer of “niceness” in order to keep the peace (and my job).

At some dreadful cost….

I love being an outspoken old woman!  It feels so good.  Too bad it is often hard for us to speak our truth and live as our authentic selves before menopause and empty nests and retirement remove the social constraints that hold most women back from defiance or even truth.

But there’s still time!  If you feel the call, go for it, ladies!  (Or should I write “wimmin”?!)


In case this particular quote doesn’t appeal to you, how about this “bumper sticker” quote, a great favorite of mine?

“It’s not too late to have a happy childhood!”


I invite you to vote for “defiant,” “happy childhood”, both, or neither in the comments section below.
