Lazy Afternoon at (El Retiro) Park

“I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy, and driven.” ― Barbra Streisand

If you’re wondering how one person can be all of these things, you’ve not me! I’m constantly pushing myself to be better than I was yesterday, aiming to reach higher and higher, and hungry for more. And then on an off day, I just take it easy and laze through the day, because… why not?

“Never did the world make a queen of a girl who hides in houses and dreams without traveling.” ― Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Half a planet away is just about right as this post is all about Seville in Spain, where we spent a few days living in the past.

“Go in peace my daughter. And remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman.” ― Queen Hippolyte

That’s some pretty good advice from Queen Hippolyte, isn’t it? We’re often fighting battles, and for those of us who have a full-time job, a major part of our battles are within the confines of our workplaces. I’ve met many women who spend a good amount of their time building their careers, holding leadership roles in big organizations or setting up their own businesses. These women wear their capes loud and proud, and that’s just how it should be.
