Wise Words From Mom

My mom sent me the following today. I really liked it and went a head and sent it on to my daughter.


When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.

When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.

When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way,
they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart. It means I
live my life MY way. It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it, I am defined
as a bitch.

The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being
everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish. It means I have the
courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won't
become anyone else's idea of what they think I "should"

I am outspoken, opinionated and determined. I want what I want and
there is nothing wrong with that!

So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every
ounce of beauty I hold within me. You won't succeed.

And if that makes me a bitch , so be it. I embrace the title and am
proud to bear it.
