Happy Monday everyone! Hope you survived the crazy traffic, family togetherness, and food comas!
This week, Boss Bitches takes a new format. A round table discussion with some very smart and funny ladies.
First, Thanksgiving. The average American ate 4500 calories during Thanksgiving dinner, according to the Calorie Control Council. That’s over twice the recommended calorie intake for an entire day, according to The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Yikes! Who will be hitting the gym to repent 🙋🏾♀️. Do you spend Thanksgiving with friends where you live or travel to family? Personally, I love being with my family and appreciate time with them more after many years as a local news reporter working nearly every holiday.
Another thing that happens Thanksgiving weekend? Yes, lots of spending 💸 (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday) but also, lots of engagements! Congrats to the happy couples!! Did you get engaged or know someone who did? Even if it felt like everyone got engaged this weekend, Thanksgiving is NOT the most popular day to get engaged. According to Wedding Wire, there will be even more engagement announcements in your feed next month!
But really- is getting engaged an accomplishment? There was a HuffPo article with a similar title published earlier this year. The author, Natalie Brooke, said, “ My frustration is this: It is 2016 and being popped the question is still more celebrated than academic and professional pursuits of women. Yes, college graduations and landing a great career and receiving wonderful promotions are all received with happiness from friends and family, but not even close to the same level of elation received when you announce that you are getting hitched. This is my experience, at least.”
We need to do better people! Get excited for the babies and bling posts, but also the new jobs and graduations too! And ladies, we need to celebrate our own accomplishments! Let the world know you’re a BOSS BITCH! brag about how you’re crushing it at work, your side hustle, or lost a ton of weight! Those are posts worth reading!
