In the March “O Magazine,” there is a short quote that makes perfect sense about how women should live our lives. It’s talking about being examples to other women and children — a main goal of this blog. Here’s the quote:
In bathrooms, boardrooms, buses, bagel shops, and everywhere else, we all need to imagine a little girl following us around, repeating everything we say and everything we do. Think about all the things you want forÂ yourself and your daughters, granddaughters, and girls everywhere — and teach them by living it yourself.”
— Nell Merlino, in “Stepping Out of Line: Lessons for Women Who Want It Their Way In Life, In Love, and at Work.”
So true. Really, we should be living this life for ourselves, but if it takes us thinking about how others will learn from our actions, then so be it.
