“Pull up your big girl panties and just do it.”
The first time I heard someone say "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it," I burst out laughing and spit my wine across my computer keyboard. My mind had an instant visual of a middle-aged woman sword fighting in nothing but her underwear. My brain goes places others don't. I decided then and there to start up "The Big Girl Panties Society," created to celebrate midlife women warriors. We've been through our 20s, when anything was possible.
It has so much chutzpah to it, yet resonates to probably every woman out there. Or not supported. Or overly supported to the point of suffocation. Or someone stole your idea. But pulling up your big girl panties is more than just moving on or dealing with that particular moment.
