Last week, Nora Ephron, one of the great writers, directors, producers and journalists of our time passed away.
Nora Ephron is pretty much my idea of the ultimate superwoman. Not only did she write one of my favourite films, but she made her mark in a male-dominated Hollywood and paved the way for all female writers after her. Her wit and her work will be missed, but never forgotten.
This week's mantra comes from her.
"Maybe young women don’t wonder whether they can have it all any longer, but in case of you are wondering, of course you can have it all. What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. It will not be anything like what you think it will be like, but surprises are good for you. And don’t be frightened: you can always change your mind. I know: I’ve had four careers and three husbands."
