Writing and Crying

Working on my book tonight and crying as I write about how so many of us women are so unbelievably harsh and unforgiving of ourselves in so many ways, and it strips the joy and confidence from our lives and accomplishments.  What happiness, satisfaction and fulfillment we could all let ourselves feel and share with our families!  As a wife, mother,  daughter, sister, employee, the days can be long and difficult.  We deserve some moments of joy.

How is it that we have accepted this?

Please, whatever you are experiencing right now, allow yourself a lot less judgement and a lot more kindness as you walk this path.  I wish this for our men and boys, too.

Tim, Alex, Carl, Mom, Lyn, Lisa, Monica, Ariel Gore, Barbara Kingsolver, Isabelle Allende, Maya Angelou, Mary Oliver (and many others)…thank you for helping me see more clearly.
