I would not call myself a “feminist”, not in the traditional sense of the word. I’m not the burn your bra and lock all the men in a storage closet type of girl, I support a woman’s right to choose. If a woman wants to be a homemaker and let her husband make all the decisions, I support that, however I am not a big fan of the idea that some women have that they need a man to make it in life. I get that mechanics and contractors sometimes try to take advantage of women because we may not know about their professions, but what is wrong with doing some research. Why is it that some women feel they need to find a man to help them with these things rather the equipping themselves with basic knowledge of cars, or window installation. Fact is, we women have to live and function in this world with or with out a man. People are getting married later, divorcing more often, there are going to be many days when a woman will have to handle things that society has deemed a “man’s job”. We cannot let gender stereotypes and insecurities hold us back from living and learning. We have to equip ourselves with the knowledge of how to manage our lives and when the man for us comes into our lives definitely let him take the car for an oil change.
I have decided that this year I am going to do all those things that I’ve always wanted to do but never had “time” for. I mean what is really consuming all my time and what have I got to loose, I am single and childless that’s a door to endless opportunity right there.
#1. write a blog – Lifestyles of the Single and Childless- done.
I am not sure of all the adventures and musings that 2014 will bring however, I am sure I will enjoy every bit of it. So far I am having the best year of my 30’s and I haven’t done anything yet.
