Introduction: A Day in the Life of American Women

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. ~ Earl Nightingale

Women fascinate us here at Graceful Grit. If you have been following us, you might have noticed this already in our articles. In the last two weeks, we expressed our personal admiration of women from every walk of life: Life coaches, friends, judges, grandmothers, and CEOs – all of them women worthy of emulation.  Each of these women has had vastly different life experiences. However, they all had at least two similarities: They were women, and they were American. It is fascinating how different life can be for people who, at least in some ways, have shared connections. That is what Graceful Grit is exploring this week. How the lives of American Women are both similar and unique. We think that you will recognize yourself in the stories our authors share and reflections of their lives as American Women.

Monday, Lorraine writes about how one woman found her life path in, “The Tightrope and the Path: A Story”

Tuesday, Alyssa reflects on built-in pressures in male-female relationships in, “Okay, I Guess.”

Wednesday, Keira tackles how having a jam-packed schedule is equated with success and the realization that, for her, personal success meant something different in, “Being Busy is not a Badge of Honor.”

Thursday, Angel describes a slice of her schedule in, “A Day in my Life.” 

Friday, Julie discusses how finding beauty in a stressful season helps women move through it with joy in, “Beauty in Chaos.”
