I must admit that I use to be hooked on black and white movies. You know the ones where the women overacted and fell on top of the bed crying whenever they didn’t get their way.
One of my favorite movies of all time is “Gone With The Wind.” Oh, the joy I feel when I watch Scarlett act like a pouting baby.
Then in walks, Rhett Butler looking manly and ready to save to take on the world while smoking a cigarette and a drink in his hand. He has a strong jawline and a walk that oozes confidence, and dare I mention his salt and pepper hair. Which made him look distinguished and well put together.
Just in case you haven’t seen the movie, Scarlett is someone who would rather deal with problems tomorrow and not face what should be confronted now. Rhett Butler is more of a deal with the situation at hand, and then carry on. He was your typical strong man, rescuing the little lady type of guy.
When I watched this movie and many more that were similar to it, I thought to myself, is this what men want?
I know that at the end of this movie, Rhett and Scarlett didn’t end up being a match, but he was intrigued by her. Scarlett was beautiful and was always picture-perfect. She was even breathtakingly gorgeous when she was fresh off the pillow.
I can’t relate to that! I will seriously scare you in the morning if you aren’t braising yourself.
I digress; not only can I not relate to that, but the whole I’ll handle it tomorrow thing is a definite no go for me. I attack problems head-on and leave nothing for tomorrow. Mostly because I know tomorrow will have fresh new problems staring me smack in my face.
I’ve also never been the type of woman that fancies being saved. I pride myself on my strength and empowering every woman that I come in contact with.
So I’ll let the Scarletts be the Scarletts, and I will watch and be entertained. But I’ll stick with being my own kind of wonder woman.
You could have chosen to read any bog, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.
