Someone once told me that the thing he liked best about me is that I have Moxie.
I didn’t really like this guy, but for some reason I always remember this as a compliment.
Recently I was layed off. Now, while I did volunteer for this (as it was inevitable anyway)and while I did it for all of the right reasons and hopefully to save the job of someone who needed it much more than I, I sit (washing bottles, clothes, driving my husband crazy with all my ideas about his business) and struggle with my worth.
Will I still have my Moxie? Will I still have my value?
Moxie is defined as:
The ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage.
Aggressive energy; initiative: “Her prose has moxie.”
Will I know how to have the Moxie to raise my family? Will I have the “The ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage.”?
This is where my priority’s are, this is where I should be.
God, save my MOXIE!
