Being a Girl: We Have Power.

Found this over at The Frisky and by God, it brought tears to my eyes. Life right now is sort of up in the air and scary/depressing, both in the personal and professional spheres. I am frequently consumed by a feeling of helplessness, and the inability to assert myself in situations over which I have no control.

Not because of my gender, but just because life is a total challenge and that is sometimes the way it works. So it's nice to see that a little eight year old girl can sum up the awesomeness of girlness, and help remind me that while life throws a lot of curve balls and likes to play dirty, there is still an awful lot to be proud of, as a woman.

We have veginas [vaginas]. We get jobs. We are creative. We have stuff that makes us preanet [pregnant]. We have milk in our bobes [boobs]. We are smart. We have power.

Ugh, I still have those tears in my eyes. We are smart. We have power.

Yes we do.
