Points To Address For The Feminism Movement pt 3

Generations of us women have done our part to break the chains of the kitchen and the never-ending laundry. Here are some conflicts that, for me, arise nearly on a daily basis. I wonder if you feel the same?

Cooking isn’t reserved for the talented. Knowing how to cook is a must.

The whole feminist movement is based on the independent woman. Why would an independent woman rely on others for her sustenance?

You need to cook for your own self-reliance. Get familiar with YOUR kitchen, YOUR equipment and the foods YOU eat. Learn how to avoid burning your food. Learn how to plan ahead. Learn how to shop for what you need. Learn how to use what you have.

Start by frying an egg to perfection. By experimenting with cooking temps, types of oil and timing, you get to know your stove and your frying pan.

You only need to learn a few meals for breakfast and a few for supper. Leftovers can be your next day’s lunch. The rest of your meal times will be filled in with sandwiches, dining out, and experimental meals.

Then pick a dish or two “to bring.” Take the time to perfect them. Be proud of them. Impress yourself and others. These do not need to be hard, complicated, or time-consuming, as these are your “go-to dishes” for when people gather and you need to do your part.

Once you know enough to be self-reliant then you can choose not cook.  If you never obtain the knowledge then you’ve never been given the choice.

The point is … Know enough to take command of your own health, your own home, and your own independence.

There Is Time … And It Will Get Used.

About five out of those twenty child-rearing years are jam-packed. What is wrong with telling busy women that they are doing the right thing? We need the truth that in certain times, life is supposed to be BUSY.

Stress is created when you are doing one thing while you think you should be doing another; just know that me-time, and experiences for growth and exploration will be there eventually.

Keep dreaming and capture those ideas. Keep planning solutions for your future, both professional and personal.  Your time will come as those kids grow up.

The point is … If you are running non-stop from sun up to sundown for a few years because you’re living your dream of home and family, you’re doing something right.

Generations of us women have done our part to break the chains of the kitchen and the never-ending laundry. The results from that movement are hard to reconcile, because the housecleaning fairy never shows up to do the daily chores. We crawl into bed remembering a promise of independence; yet our duties take the entire day. Then we wake up to repeat yesterday’s template, with nothing gained.

Here are some conflicts that, for me, arise nearly on a daily basis. I wonder if you feel the same?

Women are no longer spending their lives between the ages of 18 and 60 raising ten children. It’s time our thinking caught up with that.

Stop perpetuating the idea that staying home with the children is a choice made for a lifetime. Of an eighty to one hundred year lifespan, about twenty are spent on children. With retirement at the age of seventy-three, a person works the span of fifty-five years. To stay home with the children is a choice that likely lasts five to twenty years. That leaves room for a thirty-five to fifty year career.

The point is … Yes, you can have it all; just not all at once.
