Just for one day, let’s put a pin in talking about how awesome I am and instead talk about how awesome YOU are.
A bunch of girl power stories have come up this week. In fact, I had to put my “I Got This” t-shirt on this morning as motivation to keep up with all of you.
Ready for this?
Jenn is my 4 a.m. buddy at work. She works overnight in Seattle and hands the page off to me at 4 a.m. her time. She’s always in a good mood. The page is always in such good shape that I could go get a doughnut and come back 30 minutes later (but I don’t do that). She also freelances on the weekends, mows her lawn, is raising two adorable kids, makes cake pops to bring to preschool graduation. She even told off one of the father figures at the Father’s Day event at school who patronized her and wrongly assumed she didn’t work.
I don’t know how she does it, but someday I want to be just like her.
Another Jen in my life just qualified for a triathalon! She didn’t even set out to qualify, she just did by mistake. But she’s embracing the opportunity and training for it. But first she has to buy a bike and goggles. Go, Jen!
Coley has more part-time and occasional jobs than I can wrap my mind around (in addition to the full-time one). She is also a homeowner. With no fear, she took care of a bird situation in her attic and reinsulated it. She’s more than a pretty model!
I’m not sure these badass females want to be named, so I’ll withhold without their permission:
Badass No. 1 scared off an early morning intruder in her apartment, filed a police report and took the initiative to change her locks and report the super’s negligence.
Badass No. 2 installed a chin-up bar all by herself! She’s also training for a kayak race.
Thanks for being an inspiration, ladies!
I’m a journalist, content strategist, doting auntie, amateur bobsledder, fitness enthusiast, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
