Buying Girl Scout cookies this week I was reminded what a great organization this is, despite warnings in the press that somehow this one and others like it are encouraging our girls to think for themselves. Personally I support all girls and women thinking for ourselves and not letting men do the thinking for us, no matter how much power they believe they hold.
Girl Scouts helps strengthen our young women to become the best they can be. I bought an extra box of cookies and left the change. Whenever possible I support turning girls into strong women.
Do you remember the girl you once were?
It’s so easy to forget the innocence, the creativity, the happiness of that time in our life before we were told who and what we are supposed to be.
It’s so important to help our daughters and grand-daughters have the courage to resist being trapped into unreasonable expectations. And the best way to do that is to show them how we are doing just that in our lives.
The best books I’ve read — and written — have inspired me to search inside me for that girl and to keep her dreams alive. Women need all the help we can get, not only from writers and other artists but from strong women who have showed us the way and continue to do so.
They are the goddesses who invite our goddess within to show others the way.
Every woman and every girl has a goddess inside her. Release your goddess. The world will be a better place.
