Just because two people are capable of deeply hurting each other over and over again does not make them passionate, star-crossed lovers. It makes them two people who keep doing terrible things to each other. Someone’s ability to make you completely and utterly soul-crushingly miserable does not mean they are a soul mate with some deep insight into your psyche. They are just someone who is really good at making you unhappy. Andrea Greb
I would venture to say it’s a rarity to find a woman without body issues of some sort—not a full-fledged disorder, perhaps, but a skewed view of her body, a dislike of her shape, a desire to be thinner, bustier, taller, different. It’s so common. And yet we’re so ashamed of those feelings that we don’t talk about them. And that’s where we get into trouble. Zosia Mamet (via jessicachu)
I don’t think women can have it all. I just don’t think so. We pretend we have it all. We pretend we can have it all. My husband and I have been married for 34 years. And we have two daughters. And every day you have to make a decision about whether you are going to be a wife or a mother, in fact many times during the day you have to make those decisions. We plan our lives meticulously so we can be decent parents. But if you ask our daughters, I’m not sure they will say that I’ve been a good mom. I’m not sure. Indra K. Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo (via jessicachu)
Because if we stop worrying so much about being good and worry more about being satisfied; if we stop treating our kids like problems to be solved and parenthood like a skill to be mastered; if we simply calmed down about every little thing, then we might be able to enjoy ourselves a little more. Then things might just get better for everyone. Then things might just get great.
words of wisdom: if we simply calmed down about every little thing…
The number-one predictor to making it to the top of organizations is willingness to put in the time, and to really advance, you really need to have a spouse that can pick up the slack. In fact, most CEOs are men and have spouses who do not work.
So important. Especially for females who want to be at the top.
