We all have heroes, or at least I hope we all do. I use ‘hero’ generically like actor. It holds no connotation of gender for me. Some of my heroes, as you know, are the authors of blogs that I read regularly and this week Following In The FootSteps series highlights them one at a time to honor and thank them.
Today’s hero is Katherine Gordy Levine of Emotional Fitness fame. Katherine’s published books are available on Amazon and include: When Good Kids Do Bad Things: A Survival Guide for Parents of Teenagers, Tame the Test Anxiety, and Monster (again – in case the linkly thing doesn’t work you will find her at Emotionalfitnesstraining.com
There are a lot of things I admire about Kat but I think my faves are her Cranky Old Lady rants. With age I have found a new freedom to say pretty much what I think (you know – no longer restrained by wanting to impress anyone and being comfortable in my own skin). Kat does this exceptionally well and even has a page on her site called ‘From the Downhill Slope’.
Kat’s mission is to, “..care and share not just the good news and good times, but also to keep sharing the bumps, bruises, and yes – the pain of this glorious gift called life.”
This very accomplished lady thinks of herself as a WOO (Wise Old One) and I don’t know about the wise part for me, but as an Old one, it is nice to belong to her club.
Her page Be With Beauty is one of the twelve daily Staying Strong Exercises. Exercises she shares with us and she invites us to share our pictures of Beauty with her.
Kat’s site is very professionally done and information oozes from every word. She has wonderful quotes such as ; There is a crack in everything; it is what lets the light in. Leonard Cohen, American musician
Please do stop by and visit this wonderful WOO, say hi, and click a like or two. She loves visitors. You don’t even have to dress up, she will welcome you as you are.
