Emma Thompson At the Golden Globes
Last night was the Golden Globes on NBC. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked some butt and nailed this gig. It was such a joy to see 2 women share the stage without trying to one up the other. Women SUPPORTING women. Strange concept lately??
We as women need to boost each other up, especially us Moms. Sometimes the everyday life can get us down, but we have to focus on the fact that we are not alone. We have to be "real".
Well, forward to the lovely Emma Thompson. She heads to the stage to be a presenter with not only shoes in hand, but a martini! A girl after my own heart. Emma proceeds to throw her shoes, still with the drink in her hand and proceeds to call herself a "baller". Honey, I would LOVE to hang out with you!!!!! She is a breath of fresh air and looked beautiful to boot.
The message I got from the show last night was this - Look out you young starlets, us mature (not old ) women are SOOOOOOOO not done with Hollywood. They are embracing their roles as wives and mothers yet not giving up on their dreams. ALWAYS remember to never take yourself so seriously and enjoy this ride of motherhood.
