Cobie for SELF Magazine (April 2014)
The problem here begins with the idea that being a mother is “the world’s toughest” job. It’s a fairly ubiquitous statement: In fact, a 2013 poll by Parents magazine found that 92% of moms agreed with it. But using superlatives to leverage women against each other — stay-at-home moms versus working moms versus women who use childcare versus women who don’t have children — is not the best way to elevate our gender. Being a mother may be one of the most important jobs, but it’s a little silly to try to argue it’s objectively the toughest.
But I’m still just a lanky dork. Ironically learning to box doesn’t make you any tougher, it just makes you realize that if you actually got into a real fight you’d probably get your ass kicked.
Make Me Choose:
Jackson Avery orDerek Shepherd
The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. To love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die.
Live or die? That’s the important choice, and it’s not always in our hands. Yes or no? In or out? Up or down?
Live or die. Hero or coward. Fight or give in. I’ll say it again to make sure you hear me. The human life is made up of choices. Live or die. That’s the important choice. And it’s not always in our hands.
