a little insight....

as to why I am the way I am. My mother sent me this:


When I stand up for
Myself and my beliefs,
They call me a

When I stand up for
Those I love,
They call me a

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

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

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' be...

I am outspoken, opinionated and determined. I want what I want and there is nothing
wrong with that!
So try to stomp on me, just 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.

thanks for the reminder mom, and thanks for teaching me to be both tough and

Wow your mom is one cool lady.

I love your new blog header/design. Very clean.

I wanted to tell you that your comment made my day--I think my blog is a bit silly, so to hear YOU say it's inspiring is more of a compliment than you probably realize.

Love that SO much...unfortunately it is SO true also!

They call men ambitious, daring, bold, and fearless for the same things.
