The Heart of the Matter

12 Mar

I used to think I was an optimist, but as I’ve gotten older the dial seems to be inching closer and closer to a more realistic place. My grand plans always seemed to work themselves out in my dreams. I wouldn’t imagine any obstacles, no trouble. That’s great for a childhood imagination but not so great for a practical adult.

I’ve never been one to pay much attention to “the journey” either.  Granted, I have gotten a bit better but I do like to get where I’m going- and quickly. .  My recent stint without work has showed me more than ever that things have a way of working themselves out and in it’s own time for that matter. It’s practically become my unemployment  battle cry, but I’m determined to believe it. I’m ready for bigger and better things. With cautious optimism, I say bring it on.




International Women’s Day

8 Mar

March is National Women’s History Month(US), and today is International Women’s Day. Ladies, let’s hear it for the recognition! :) I shall celebrate in the best way I know how- let’s read!

I came across this link from Flavorwire. It is their list for ten of the most powerful women in literature, which I think is a good mix. I share a lot of the same thoughts.  Do you think they missed any? Who’s your favorite heroine?

These are some of my favorites.

  • Hermione Granger: Proof that smart girls can have it all.
  • Jane Eyre: A so called “plain” girl who always rose to the occasion
  • Scout Finch: A young girl with  good heart and an inquisitive soul
  • Hester Prynne: Shows constant strength amid vicious rumors and cruelty.
  • Katniss Everdeen: A true badass
