This Mother’s Day, ABC powerhouse Shonda Rhimes is Oprah’s special guest on Super Soul Sunday and she has a lot to say about success, motherhood and what Mother’s Day cards should actually be saying, the Huffington Post says.
“All the greeting cards are about sacrifice…’Mother, you gave up so much for me. You worked so hard for me. You sacrificed so much. You were wonderful and giving and selfless,’” the mother of three stressed.
In her opinion, they would convey a different message: “Where is the greeting card that says, ‘Mother, you taught me how to be a powerful woman.’ ‘Mother, you taught me how to earn a living.’ ‘Mother, you taught me how to speak up for myself and not back down.’ Those are the greeting cards that should be out there,” she says.
What’s fueling her opposition? She says its all about her kids.
“I don’t want my daughters to grow up and think, ‘I should shrink and be in the background. I should be selfless. I should be sacrificing. I should be silent,’” she explained.
During this same sit down with Oprah, Rhimes also shared why she is not interested in getting married.
Do you boo! Happiness is key.
