One of my favourite quotes..

I read this book last year “God Chicks: Living life as a 21st century woman” by Holly Wagner and the chapter The ‘Whatever it takes’ chick was one of my favourites. There was the quote in it that made the slightly tacky “chick” references worthwhile.

When women around the world told Holly how much they wanted to have her life and how could they get it.. this is what she would reply with.

“Study hard… read a book a week.. stay married when you feel like leaving.. write a letter to a friend when you’d rather shop.. play with your children when you want some time alone.. write when you feel like sleeping.. work out when you feel like playing.. control emotions when you feel like screaming.. forgive when you feel like hating.. overcome limitations when you want to quit.”
