one woman's quest to live the life she's imagined all while daring you to do the same

The Iron Lady

“If you just set out to be liked, you will be prepared to compromise on anything at anytime, and would achieve nothing.” 

How badass is that?

And Margaret Thatcher knows a thing or two about losing popularity contests. Homegirl took it like a lady.

Elisa and I enjoyed Meryl Streep’s portrayal of the late Prime Minister in The Iron Lady, after about 30 minutes trying to figure out what kind of movie we were in the mood for, late last night.

Turns out we’re always in the mood for Meryl Streep, especially when she’s playing a force to be reckoned with like Mrs. Thang: Margaret Thatcher.

A woman who was turned down for one of her first jobs out of college for being “headstrong, obstinate and dangerously self-opinionated.”

Raise your hand if you would have, like me, gone home and cried?

Not Thatcher.

She seemed to be more driven and more passionate, the larger the opposition.

Talk about brave!

Although she wasn’t considered the best public speaker, at first, she was always well-prepared and fearless in her responses, sources said.

“I wasn’t lucky, I deserved it.” 

Now that’s what’s up.

One of my favorite Margaret Thatcher quotes:

“Watch your thoughts for they become words.

Watch your words for they become actions.

Watch your actions for they become habits.

Watch your habits for they become your character.

And watch your character for it becomes your destiny.”

I leave you with this: I would listen to her if I were you. She’s not the kind of woman I’d pick an argument with, for one. And, for two, sister clearly knows her shit.


Much Love,
