my little rant


The topic for this post has been simmering for a few months now,

and it is time to put it up.

So, dear reader, bear with me in my little rant…

Here we go!

I have been at odds with the phrase: Reinvent Yourself.

Touted by Lifestyle Bloggers, aka Professional Dilettantes

(with boob jobs and loads of money)

(yes, I am working with my projections)

and marketed to over 50-ish women.


And, from what I can see,

marketed to all women at every age.

How about just BEING yourself?

Isn’t that hard enough in and of itself?


You know whereof this stems, don’t you?


“It is easier to try to better than you are than to be who you are.”

~Marion Woodman



(that was me as a child–

I simply could not manage to stay within the lines–

coloring or otherwise)


“Do not try to transform yourself,

move into yourself.

Move into your human unsuccess,

perfection rapes the soul.”

~Marion Woodman


As my dear teacher Dorothy J. Anderson told me:

“Our job is to become more and more OURSELVES—NOT anybody else.”



Thank you for reading my little rant.
