This week’s prompt is: Independence

***

I became semi independent at age 18 getting a good job and living in a boarding house. Then married, and raised three children. I was only forced to be truly independent after my husband died in 2013.

I had worked outside the home, started two businesses and earned my own money in our married years. While my husband was alive and working his job provided me the ability to work or not outside our home. After our kids left for college it was important for me to to do that.

Being what I would call an independent personality, it’s not always what it’s cracked up to be. In the 60s and 70s women were frowned upon for being independent. Now I tell my granddaughters “girl power”!
