Heard the phrase on a morning talk show from Madonna as she described how she felt about sharing the stage with younger, talented superstars. I hope to look that good and be that FABULOUS at age 49.
So I have usurped the phrase for myself! I’m not giving up my Diva Space this weekend. Repeat: I am not giving up my Diva Space! Not for the kids, or Tim, or work, or anyone. I’m being selfish this weekend, which is not to say that I won’t spend time with my family. But once their needs are met, I then will make my own the priority.
What does that mean for a Poet Mom? Finding time to write, attending a reading/open mike, getting out and widening my poetry circle, and staying in those moments longer than I do. After all, what poet is not a diva at some time in their lives? As always, I will report my diva activities here.
I encourage everyone this weekend to live in the moment, and capture it on the page or in photos on your blog. Be a little selfish. Do something you were on the fence about. Then write about it.
Life is too short to pass up Diva Space.
