Two weeks ago, I had this article published on Thought Catalog. It was really cool! I woke up to the email that it was live on the site and it felt pretty awesome. (Aside from here, I don't often try to get things published anywhere else.) I didn't think much of it, but the response was pretty cool! It was sent around the internet a bunch and people were tweeting at me about it. It was pretty fun.
But today, I was going through all the blogs I read and one of my favorite bloggers, Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, posted about my list! FOR THE SECOND TIME! (She didn't mention me, because it was through Thought Catalog, but I'm still excited!) I loved her response to it and that it made her think about getting closer to the woman she wants to be. That's what makes me happy about having it published. I've really grown up in the past few years, and I still have my fair share of trials and tribulations, but I do feel a lot more confident in my own skin and really feel like I'm approaching that time in my life where I feel like I know who I am and what I want. If I can help other women feel that way, then that's great!
I do realize that being "happy" is a much larger topic and I could probably write a whole different article on what makes a happy woman happy (although, admittedly, I still have a ways to go in that department.) But I do think women should consider having each of these things, or some version of these things, to make their lives a little bit easier (a uniform!) and to help in defining what makes them who they are!
Also, I should note, I didn't proofread and spelled Mick Jagger's name wrong. I guess I don't care about spelling any musician but Michael Jackson's name right.
