Anything Boys Can Do...

Girls can do better!

Sometimes girls/women need a little extra encouragement when taking on an activity that is typically one done by the boys!

As a female firefighter for more than 25 years, I know this first hand! You have to have a certain mindset and an attitude that you will achieve your goals no matter what. I've seen many play the "girl card" and expect special treatment. You know what? They are the ones that fail! Each and every time!

This is something that I've tried to instill in my daughter. Do whatever your heart desires and give it your all! Never expect an easy path! In the end it will be so much more rewarding!

To encourage my daughter and all the others out there like her and I, I designed this sweet little sign...

My plan is to make a series of these signs for different activities! First up will be football, because my beautiful girl decided she was going to play tackle football and was one of the toughest on the team!

You go, girls!

  1. Yeah! What a great idea. What an inspiration.

  2. I love this! I don't know if I ever told you or not, but I used to be a welder/pipefitter. I was typically the only girl on the jobs I worked on. The work was tough, but dealing with the mens' attitudes was even tougher. The one thing it did for me, is give me the confidence to do my own work around my house...which in turn started my love of DIY.

    Ladies, don't be afraid to try anything!!


I loove me some comments! Hugs!
