I have no idea where the boss culture has come from but I have come to grips with the fact that I dislike it. Ha! I have never and don’t plan to ever refer to myself as a Boss Babe, Boss Chick or any of the other synonymous phrases that have become popular within the last year or two. The fact of the matter is, the line from Chance the Rapper’s record “Mixtape” plays loudly in my head whenever I see these phrases. “How do they call themselves bosses, when they have so many bosses?”
When did you start to forget how to fly? I heard Chance the Rapper through the speakers as it sounded like he was talking directly to me. That poignant question is one that I feel so many of us neglect. As children, the possibilities are endless before our parents, the world, school and friends tells us everything we can’t be. Not on purpose, but sometimes just in their actions and so sometimes we forget that we can fly.
