As the first inspirational weekend post, I have chosen something that sits above my desk at work. It was there when I arrived, as thought it was meant for me to read it. I love it, and it’s a reminder that we just have to keep on trucking. Here it is:

“When we talk of a female future, we are talking of something that once existed and that has been deliberately and with full malice held down and controlled by means so violent that no nonaggressive entity could hope to resist. We are talking here about the power of women, felt by every woman at some time in her life, that tremendously rich and life-giving, life-affirming force…even though we can’t know that a female future would save the world, we have nothing to lose from acting as if it would.” Sally Miller Gearhart, The Future, If There Is One, Is Female.
