"Rosie the Riveter" is a cultural icon representing the American woman working during WWII. She symbolizes the strong, independent woman of that time. -- Now, more than 70 years later, the symbol stands as strong as she. I am proud to be a woman and am grateful for other brave women before me that endured the struggle of sexism and paved the equal path to our society today.

These are the confessions, lessons learned and experiences from my life. A single, independent, strong, young professional woman living in a busy Downtown city in Northern California.

Embracing my domesticity while enjoying the freedom of being perfectly lonely.

Quote of the Week - Count Your Blessings...

I originally wrote out a long post but decided to revert it to a shorter Quote of the Week instead. In this time of mourning, I don't want to draw more attention to the tragedy in Conneticut but instead pass on some help or faith...something to hold on to. 
When I am feeling depressed or down I remember the wise words of my Mother, count your blessings.

May sound a little funny if you have never heard of this but literally, I start saying outloud, write a list or just ponder my many blessings in my life. There are so many wonderful things in this world that we have to be thankful for. It is hard to remember those in time of saddness or tragedy but I believe those are the times we need to be the most grateful.

Start small & I promise you will be surprised at how quickly your list grows.

Quote of the week - count your blessings. Name them one by one.
