A strong woman, a courageous woman, a valiant woman. Call her what you like but to me Boudica, the Warrior Queen was a woman’s, woman. Fierce protector of her children, fearless leader of her people, A rebel unafraid to take on the most powerful empire in the world to right a grievous wrong and avenge those she loved.
Some of us may find it difficult to assume the role of the avenger and to be honest, I am one of those people. I am also the person who can certainly find it within myself to call upon that power when needed.
What Boudica teaches me is that there are times when anger and rage are absolutely appropriate in certain situations and can be the inner spark I need to fight for who and what I love.
She is the bright lighter I turn to when I need to fire up my own warrior spirit and go to battle with the world.
