Quote of the Day: Owning our choices

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." - Joseph Campbell

Wow - does this quotation speak to you as much as it does me? I think we spend so much of our life trying to blend in or to be accepted, and this is a reminder that it's our right - our privilege - to be exactly who we are.

For me, I want that to manifest in the way I own my choices.  As I contemplate motherhood, this becomes even more important.  The level of criticism and judgment that is passed against mothers - especially by other mothers - is both horrifying and terribly sad.  I am trying to make a conscious effort to feel confident in exactly who I am and to own the choices that I make both as an adult and a someday mother.
