Are you leaning in like a good soldier or if your aren’t leaning in are you loading your cannon to shoot in the general direction of all the ladies that think leaning in is the way to go?
Are you writing editorials to the New York Times? You better be.
Are you pleasing your man or your woman or you child or your dog or your mother-in-law or your boss or every acquaintance that crosses your path? If you don’t know the answer to this are you paying good money to understand why?
Have you mastered balance—yet—because a shit load of us have. We feel serene when appropriate and we find a way to sandwich our yoga/Pilates/meditation/hula hoop/trapeze/stripper class/thesis in between all the other tasks we have assigned to ourselves because we aren’t keen on asking for help or should we say we aren’t keen on having the experience of being helped.
Do you have it all? There’s a 99.9% chance that you should.
Are you loathing the appropriate other women? Do you have a list of them that you keep in your organic backpack? Ann Coulter should be the first and then, depending on what side you’re on Sheryl Sandburg and Marissa Mayer should be in the top five.
Have you found time to celebrate your beauty and strength and womanliness?
Have you listened to your inner child at least once this month?
Have you told her to be patient when she tells you this feels like a bunch of bullshit?
Have you taken time to celebrate YOU for who YOU are as well as all the other women who think like YOU, that are similar to YOU.
Do you have a sinking feeling that you may be doing this all wrong but that thought makes you feel exuberant and right?
Well, congratulations then, you’re a good woman and this is your month.
