One commute home - two amazing women

I live in Manhattan but I commute to Stamford CT for work. My commute is a good hour and 15 minutes each way and usually I'm so exhausted that I am sleeping or playing on my Ipad. Yesterday, however, I was overly alert and I noticed two amazing women. I just had to share.

The first was a woman in her mid-40s. She was wearing sky-high stilettos and she was carrying a very huge bag of food shopping home. What amazed me more than anything was that even though the bags were clearly heavy and the high heels had to have been very painful she was looked gorgeous, stylish and walked with the lightness of a feather.


The second woman was even more amazing. She was riding the subway with her baby. The baby had a big diaper accident and she had to change the baby right then and there! She was traveling alone with no stroller just the baby-bjorn. So this is what she did. She balanced the baby on her knees and proceeded to undress, clean and redress the baby with one hand. Somehow all this only took her 2 subway stops even though the baby was crying and the mess was pretty intense. The most impressive part was watching her face - she was so calm, so sweet to the baby. It would have been so easy for her to loose it, make the baby wait until she got out of the subway or to become embarrassed by her situation but she was none of those things. Cool as a cucumber - amazing!

I felt so empowered to be a woman after meeting these two amazing strangers and to all you multitaskers out there - remember that you are amazing!

So I disappeared there for a while

Sometimes this blogging thing reminds me of writing in my diary back when I was 7 or 8 years old. I would have a few weeks of consistent entries and then neglect my poor diary for months. The guilt I felt was terrible but I refused then and still refuse to write if I am lacking inspiration or desire. So there! I admit it! I just haven't felt like blogging. But this doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about my blog. In fact, I have been questioning if my current plan to blog solely about fashion at work  is the right strategy. There are so many other topics I want to discuss. I would love to provide my view points on the work-life balance, marriage, changing interests and feeling empowered as a woman.

I just finished reading an interview with DVF in the FT - a must read here.  It inspired me to focus broader, not just on fashion but on women in the work place. It isn't easy to balance wanting to be a respected professional, a loving and understanding wife, an attentive daughter and sister and for some of us a smart, fun and responsible mommy. DVF is doing it, why can't you and I?

I hope you will find my new direction a better one and I also hope that you spread the word about my little blog ...

Please send me your thought and comments, topics that you want to explore and I will join in the exploration with you!
