I figured I would start my first blog post with a roll call.
Where are all the badass women who claim to be fearless, stubborn, clever, and loyal? I am looking for the women who stand up for themselves, who go after what they want or die trying, who treat their friends like family and always put their family first. Who don’t call their friends when they have the time but make the time to be with friends. You know the girl I mean. The one that demands respect, respectfully. The one that will stand up for a total stranger just to do what’s right. The one who uses labels like friend, leader, and hero appropriately.
As I wander through adult hood I have come across many who wear the mask of this rare badass persona but rarely, if ever, have I seen any remnant of badass after the mask comes off. Is this a trend? Maybe it’s cool to be a badass, for now, but not cool enough to bet the farm and make a total transformation now? Let’s try on this mask for a while and see how I feel? Nope. Badass is not a trend, it is not something you can sorta be. Being a badass is an all or nothing, get up or get out of the way, be honest or I honestly don’t care, loving loyal kind of soul. A badass would rather be lonely than sacrifice a drop of their soul for a relationship that’s anything less than genuine and sincere.
If you think you are a badass do not leave a comment. If you know you are a badass I beg you to leave a comment! Tell me what it’s like to be your badass self and PLEASE tell me how you found your tribe!
