With the unveiling of the former Olympians new female identity this week did you really think I could go past naming Caitlyn Jenner as this Sunday’s Fierce Female?!
When asked by Vanity Fair what the first thing she was going to do now that Bruce is finally Caitlyn she responded; I’m just going to go live life, I’m going to go enjoy life! Right here is why she is the epitome of a fierce female! She’s not doing it for anything but the simple joy of enjoying life and being comfortable in her own skin, like we all should. During the Diane Sawyer interview where Bruce explained that he had to finally do it as he’d never forgive himself if got to the end of his life and felt like he’d never lived honestly, this really struck a chord with me. – “I just can’t hold the curtain any longer. Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie. I can’t do it any more.” This is why I live by the ethos that every day is special, every day is a blessing, so live your life NOW, honestly and to the fullest. Just be YOU! Living to 65 and realising you’re not happy and haven’t led a truthful life just breaks my heart, but like Caitlyn’s taught us, it’s never too late to start!
Whatever your opinion on the subject (and we all know opinions are like assholes, everyone’s got one!) you have to admit this is very brave and inspirational, and DAMN she looks ah-mazing!
“I’m saying goodbye to people’s perception of me and who I am. But I’m not saying goodbye to me. This has always been me. [When you think of me], please be open-minded. I’m not this bad person. I’m just doing what I have to do.”
