For today I shall AVOID all controversy over the book LEAN IN.
We’ve chatted about it a bit over on the book of the FACE and, in a way, it feels as though we’re flogging a dead horse at this point.
My short, misfit version is wondering if it isnt time for men to grow a little LESS confident and lean *back* in the workplace.
Which, now that I reread, mightcould be why I do best as a work-at-home woman even long before the Tornado.
And with that Im back on track again.
This child is growing at a rapid, rapid rate.
These days, as non-intellectual as it may seem, I hear the title: Lean In and immediately burst forth with:
Instead of a call to feminist-action the title, for me, has become a reminder of whats important in my life.
A summons to (keep doing what Im doing &) *not* forget the levity and love in my life.
Lately LEANING BACK has been a challenge.
Today Im leaning back.
Im not fretting about getting ahead or charging the workplace.
Im turning up the tunes, dancing with the child and letting all else fall where it may.
I can do that. For sure. For today.
Two women I adore are turning THIRTY. It’s today’s BIRTHDAY post I wrote for them which prompted my remembering to Roc-away. Happy Birthday Lori and Michelle & thank you for making me remind myself what’s important.
