let’s not go back
Julie Stills Miles at Pragmatic Compendium posted this video that made me laugh and almost cry all at the same time:
I laughed at the ridiculousness of it and how far we have come since those days. But in some sense, I cried at the irony, because there have been times when I’ve felt almost that separated from the world of business for which I trained. Not directly from family or friends, but subtle messages from the world at large.
Carla Barnhill speaks of the church’s pressure on mothers in The Myth of the Perfect Mother. I’ve been ruminating (one of my new favorite weird words) on her message. Some of it hit home for me and some seemed a little far-fetched. As soon as I process my thoughts, I’ll write more. If you’re interested, join Carla and her friend Caryn’s thought-provoking conversations at The Mommy Revolution.
In the meantime, enjoy. Does something in this video strike a chord with you?
