Better do a good deed near at home than go far away to burn incense.
Women must pay for everything. They do get more glory than men for comparable feats, but, they also get more notoriety when they crash.
Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.
