The Heroine’s Journey

In one of my writing classes this semester, we discussed character development. The instructor brought in a stack of books that she thought might be helpful. One of those books was “The Heroine’s Journey” by Maureen Murdock. Seeing that book sent me back twenty years. “The Heroine’s Journey” was the first woman’s quest book I ever bought.

Inspired, I pulled the book off my bookshelf and gave it another look. After flipping through it, I remembered what was important about this book. It explained why being superwoman hasn’t fulfilled women.

A quote at the beginning of the book is worth sharing. It is by Marion Woodman, a Canadian poet and prominent figure in the women’s movement.

But if you travel far enough, one day you will recognize yourself coming down the road to meet yourself. And you will say – Yes.

On a lighter note, if you’ve been searching for a meaningful way to bond with your children (of any age), I highly recommend learning how to do the Harlem Shake. Most importantly, do the dance in public places as often as possible. If you need some inspiration, check out this link.
