This past week I was in Washington D.C., and able to go to the Air and Space Museum. One of the displays there was the sepia picture that I have below. I knew instantly that this was something I wanted to share with my readers.
I think that this exhibit was trying to say that "back in the day" women were held to a high standard in the work force. Everything needed to be perfect. I think that women today need hold them selves at a high standard as well. We feel as though everything about us needs to be perfect and that we need to look a certain way.
This post is not targeted towards just women but also men and your children. Your flaws are what make you special. Don't strive to be the person you see in the media, or the person you have painted in your head. Strive towards being a better you.
As Kathryn Stockett writes in her book the Help: "You is kind, you is smart, you is important."
"The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his
own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and
with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take
their choice.” ~William Makepeace Thackeary
