“She’s a real firecracker, you know? She’s not someone you forget meeting.”

Someone recently referred to me as a “firecracker,” and it was one of the most flattering compliments I think I’ve ever received. I suppose it could go both ways. There might be some people who would look at being called that as a negative thing…overwhelming, perhaps. Intimidating. Too flashy. Too much to handle. I, on the other hand, LOVE the comparison. Life is far too short to be boring, mundane, or prim and proper! Here in North in particular, it seems there is a bit of an unspoken rule that women should be polite…passive …docile…meek…but in the thesaurus of life, give me “firecracker” over any of those adjectives any day! There is a quote by Coco Chanel that says: “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” Today: Dare to be different. Dare to stand out. Dare to turn right when everyone else goes left. Dare to be a force of nature. Though the argument might stand that a firecracker eventually burns out…I think it’s better to have just one streak across the sky like the 1st  of October than a lifetime of playing it safe in the box. Because when it’s all said and done, there is nothing more delightfully dangerous than a woman who has tapped into her own power………..pepeRempe……..peace
