As women, we have a lot of places to look for inspiration. Our mothers, grandmothers, daughters, and great women in history. This month, Netflix is featuring a number of shows with strong female leads. Whether it is the young Queen Elizabeth of The Crown, as she leads a country through troubling times, or the three generations of Gilmore girls, who are strong, opinionated, and self-sufficient!
These, along with other shows, can be a great source of personal reflection. What would you say to your younger self? Would you go back and do things differently? I would remind myself to slow down and enjoy every part of life. To treasure the small moments and not be impatient for the next phase of life – it comes fast enough!
And speaking of fast enough, can we talk about Lorelai and Rory Gilmore for a moment?! Those girls can TALK! The dialogue is so quick and witty in the series. I remember hearing that a normal hour-long TV show has a script of X number of pages, but an episode of Gilmore Girls has almost twice the number of pages due to the fast talking! I love how in the series, it always comes back to family. No matter what happens, or who comes along, your family is most important to you.
Thanks for chatting with me about some great women, and let me know what you think of Gilmore Girls this week! Premiering tonight, November 25 2016.
