Write or Die Wednesday's: I want to be a lioness.

Joining up with The Chronicles of Chaos (a day late) for the bi-weekly Write or Die Wednesday's.

Write or Die Wednesdays

Today's weekly writing prompt is:

I want to be a lioness. 
I want to be in charge of my own life. 
I don't want people telling me what to do, 
I don't want to live in fear or what other's think
I don't want people I call 'family' making me feel guilty for what I want.
becoming a parent {soon} has made me want to be in charge of my own.
I'm in the progress of removing all the negative people from my life.
I'm in the progress in creating a lionheart so I can show my children courage. 
Lion's protect their packs and I need to also.
It's time to take charge and stand up for myself. 
It's time to create my own dreams & watch them come true
It's time to stop being a coward & hoping that people will change.
It's time to allow my inner strength to shine through.
I think becoming a parent makes you protective. 
I want to protect my young from the negative and teach them to be strong.
I don't want my children to live in fear like I have 
but to learn to respect others while standing for their beliefs.

I will become a lioness and fear no more
I will become a lioness - so hear my roar! 


  1. This is beautiful, Amy! I love that you are becoming a lioness and taking charge of your life. I hear you roar, girl! :) Big hugs. Thanks so much for joining us for #WODW. xo

    1. Aww thank you Mia! I really enjoy these #WODW's!
      <3, Amy

  2. I love your honesty! Thanks for sharing your heart with us! I'm not a parent yet, but I have heard others with similar feelings about their kids!

    1. Thank you Andrea! I've taken a lot from friends & family but these has been a inner switch to deserve & want better. Esp since I'll have kids witnessing how others treat me.

  3. Love this, Amy :) This resonates for many reasons.

    For one, my mom was an excessive worrier, and though she was courageous in certain ways, she was definitely mum when it came to her needs and wants and advocating for herself. I would grow to model that up until about my mid-late 20s.

    One day I realized that I had to be a better example for my daughters. I had to be COURAGEOUS for them.

    Thank you for sharing your honest heart with us!!!

    1. Thank you V!
      I've had a rough road. I've overcome a lot of obsticles but I have kept negative people hanging around (like my family) who I've kept close. I have always fought for what I've wanted but put up with the bs to keep people close.
      Yes I am also at that point that I have to stand up for myself and stop allowing people to bully me. They aren't friends or family if they are treating me like crap. the wizard of OZ teaches us that lions can be cowards but need to find their inner strength to be courageous! <3, Amy

  4. Yes! Be a lioness! Conquer that fear!
