ideas for someone else to do.
old wives tales. tales from people who are or have been a wife* for more than a decade. … all your tales are old wives tales. all the things you’ve learned, all the world you’ve seen.
lets venerate ourselves. more, more. more.
get those glennon doyles, those liz gilberts, those oprahs, those anne lamotts… get them, put them in one spot and shine the hell out of them. read them to our kids, start borrowing bits of their knowledge and calling it our own, because we’re them too, just not with any platform. we do know as much as they do, actually.
although i envy the hell out of their ability to think and process and then SHARE so well. i’m missing at least one step at all times.
but still. bring it on, we old wives. . .
*recognizing ‘wife’ doesn’t have to mean ‘church wedding’, or hetero-anything.
