Once upon a time, people used to tell me I was "too independent." It wasn't a compliment.
Of course, with marriage and children, day-to-day routines and commitments, my tendency to "pick my battles" and basically just the passage of time, my fiery independence has mellowed out somewhat.
Then this past week, I had a sudden flare-up of my old determination and spirit. It actually made me feel a bit more sparkly than usual, which just reminded me that maybe I need to be "too independent" just a little more often. I made this page before I could forget that swaggery feeling. Wait, is 'swaggery' even a word? Never mind, you know what I mean.
It seemed like the perfect time bust out some graffiti-style writing. I'm not so far gone that I'd dare to do this on an actual WALL, mind you - but I did daydream about it briefly. Heh.
Now I really can't wait to see what next week will bring!
