I am you…we are sisters…now a boomer..I come from a modest background…my upbringing left me with traumas that defined my path. I made mistakes…less than some of you reading this and much more than others. I floundered, making poor choices again and again….especially in men. I was a single parent…married parent…divorced parent. But the traumas endured also inspired my strength…to count on myself…to keep trying until I got it right…or at least better. We came here on different paths…But in each step of my path, I learned…I grew…I found my voice. I learned to stand up for myself…concentrated on breaking a cycle for my children…I did not listen to those who said I can’t, I just did….I found careers to grow with and reached out anywhere and everywhere for support. I found mentors and classes and groups and absorbed it all.
I am not perfect, far from it, my daughter will testify to that…:) but I raised her with a voice…a daughter with a self confidence and sense of purpose I could not even imagine at her age. That brought me here and to you. My passion for all of us to find and Embrace our Voices…to teach that to our daughters so they know how to choose a life partner that supports them and does not hurt or degrade them. To be whole and know their inner strength.
In Embracing our Voices and sharing our stories…the ones that make us cry and the ones that make us laugh. The stories in the news that enrage or confound us…add our voices for change.
Share your stories…learn from others….have fun! Live every moment.
Boomers…we defined a generation then…we continue to now.
