“For a woman, you’re very opinionated…”

Very *very* short blog post, but seeing the response I received from Twitter (and for me, 10+ retweets/favourites is a lot, I don’t post things that are that interesting!), I figured I would share this.

My mum tagged me in a photo on Facebook this morning. She said it was fitting for me and I most definitely agree:

A man told me that for a woman, I was very opinionated. I said 'for a man, you're kind of ignorant' - Anne Hathaway

A man told me that for a woman, I was very opinionated. I said ‘for a man, you’re kind of ignorant’ – Anne Hathaway (yes, they spelt her name wrong in the iamge)

I honestly think this is a fabulous quote – and I’m somewhat ecstatic that my mum thought it was applicable to me. Makes me know that she’s proud of me especially for being opinionated and standing up for myself.

For some reason, this makes me feel extremely proud…because I know she’s proud of me. It’s wonderful to know that I have the support of people around me to be who I am, to express my views and opinions and know they’ll be heard, and to be loved and appreciated because of my outspokenness and tendency to be opinionated at times (read: all the time).

So this post is dedicated to another opinionated woman – my mum, Philippa – for being awesome and for helping to make me the opinionated, outspoken, stubborn, wilful, headstrong woman that I am.

Love you Mum! ^_^
