As I stood in the shower this evening and internally repeated a conversation I had with my partner earlier this morning, I started thinking about all the trouble and effort that women go through on a daily basis…
To fill you in briefly on the conversation… the man in my life is a DJ, so he mostly works nights and sleeps the mornings and sometimes the days away. In addition to this, he is probably one of the most easy going “min ge spin” people I have ever met. (it’s an Afrikaans, South African term for: not phased about anything)
School was NEVER my thing! I simply did not fit in! – In a way, that is sad, because my parents sacrificed a lot in order for me to attend one of the top High Schools in the country and in all honesty, I wasted the opportunity.
But... that was not to be my path!
On Friday the 11th of November last year (2016), I received a bunch of "anonymous" roses at my shop - and as any lady would be... I was flattered and curious...who? why? and so the questions roll around in your head...
Little did I know, that this was soon to become a constant in my life...
What is it with the young “women” of today?! Obviously there are the exceptions to the rule but for the most part, many of them are… (Let me think about how to put this politely) …SELF ABSORBED, ARROGANT LITTLE B*TCHES! (Yes that’s about as gracious as it was going to get).
With most of us ladies being career driven these days, it can become overwhelming at times to keep a level head when it comes to managing all the ‘other’ responsibilities which come hand in hand with motherhood and family life – no, seriously – do the clothes in my house have something against me that they need me to repeatedly clean them?! Haha! – EVERYDAY is laundry day in my house! Literally! – But, it makes my OCD heart happy, and that generally means that everyone else around me is happier too… smile and wave, smile and wave…
Perhaps it is just me and the way things have repeatedly unfolded in my life, but I find it funny, how (often) as women, when we are single, we are enormously independent. We could literally take on the world. We are intelligent, passionate go-getters and very driven! - Yet when we enter into long term relationships, we become ‘comfortable’ with the so called ‘roles’ of each gender and to some degree (in my opinion anyway)… lose ourselves, our passion, a degree of our confidence and mostly our belief in our amazing capabilities and ourselves in general.
