I have this great plaque on my wall that I found at a small store in Vermont many years ago.

The title is “How to be an Uppity Woman” and it goes like this:

Wake UP to your magnificent potential
Let UP on the “shoulds” in your life
Dress UP however you want
Loosen UP and be silly
Give UP trying to do everything for everyone
Get UP your courage to be you-nique
Stand UP for yourself and your opinions
Face UP to what needs to be changed and do it
Lift UP your spirit in thanks for who you are
Open UP to love around and within you

Nice, huh? I like it. Why not give it a try? You’ll feel better about yourself. I promise.
