“We lose more women to marriage than war, famine, and disease.” – Cruella De Vil
As a mother of three and a happily married wife – I still think this is true. Women are the most important component of life on earth. We are intelligent and resourceful, not to mention we have a high threshold for pain. We get married and we become second to ourselves, even if our partners put us first. It is our nature as nurturers. We then pour all of our best ideas and wealth of knowledge into our partners and children – in hopes that one day it will be a dream fulfilled. At this point, it is no longer our dream, idea, or knowledge. It is now passed on to be freely interpreted and carried out in a manner not of our own derivation. It is not ours anymore, we are then empty and we must start again in our finest hour. Although, in contrast, If you thought we were good then…come back in 20 years. Reinvention is the essence of our being – thank you, Madonna.
