Want to be BADASS?
Recently, while waiting in line at the grocery store, I gazed at the magazine rack and one caught my eye- InStyle, February 2022 edition.
“Badass Women” was the leading title and featured 50 of the most BADASS women in the world. Wow, wonder what these badass women have to say. Having been called a BADASS myself by multiple patients, my interest was piqued to their definition as well as learning about their incredible contributions and accomplishments.
Of the 50 women selected, I’m sharing my 3 favorites - although, all are truly badass!
When asked, “How would you describe someone who is badass?”
Mahala Yousafza, Nobel laureate, Activist for Women’s Rights in Afghanistan, Inspiring Teacher on MasterClass videos.
“A person who knows their ambitions and aspirations and is confident in what they believe in. They’re proud of themselves, their identity, where they come from, and what they stand for.”
Frances Haugen, the “whistleblower” who testified about Facebook’s mishandling of issues such as hate speech and political ads.
“Someone who does what they believe is right, even when it’s unpopular. A badass doesn’t shrink from powerful people.
Betty Reid Soskin, 100 years old, the oldest serving National Park Service Ranger, Prominent songwriter during the Civil Rights Movement and union boilermaker clerk during WWII.
“Being badass means that one is in line with what’s new…I do consider myself to be one.”
Being in line with what’s new. Yes, being present and mindful of ourselves, our strengths and limitless opportunities to change the world to be a better place for all.
BTW – Betty has no plans to retire anytime soon…You go,girl!!
So, I ask you, what’s your definition of BADASS?
