So. Much. Sass.
'Sassy', is one of my favourite words. So today, let's rejoice in the wonderful world of sass and celebrate what that means.
I've always toed the line / pushed the boundaries in terms of displaying a smidge of sass, vs just being a bit of a madam but I'd like to think it has contributed positively to my life. Others may not agree with me if they have been on the receiving end of a 'madam moment' but oh well. Soz about me!
I can definitely appreciate that I am hard work. There, I said it. I should *probably* compromise a bit more and at times, just shut up and do it. Or at least I am quite sure that is what other people wish I would do! But that just wouldn't be me!
Now, please don't interpret this post as an ode to being a diva, as it's not, but more an encouraging, thought provoker of a post to help you find your sassy voice. Channel that inner Queen B and go after what you want in life.
The current popular celebs du jour seem to be allll about the sass and I think they are a very good example to young women. I am thinking Emma Watson #HeForShe rather than your stroppy Miss Grande's of the world who 'Hates America', FYI.
As women, we tend to be a little submissive and accept what will be, will be and I think that is a very defeatist approach to life. We should 100% not be afraid of getting out there, sticking up for what we want and need and seriously, ambition doesn't make you a bitch or a 'ball breaker'. It is 2015!!!
Don't take a back seat in finding your way to happiness, live in the moment and do not accept anything other than what is right and what is best for you.
I think for me, I have been fortunate enough to carve out my own little corner of the internet where I can get on my high horse. I have to say in a good few areas of my life, I am confident enough to stick up for myself and question bad behaviour from people who really should know better. I do think this comes easier with age, but also I think it's ok to have a voice. For so long I would let friends get away with treating me like something they could pick up and throw back down and I am just not happy to accept that anymore.
You don't have to become all confrontational by any means, but I'd say I am happier and have better friendships now that I am completely and brutally honest rather than quietly resenting someone and hoping and praying that they just stop their rubbishy behaviour...
So the moral of this rather rambling story is; don't wish for it, work for it!
