Amelia Earhart was raised with an unusual unisex attitude – I mean that her mother didn’t try to pigeon hole her 2 daughters in to being girlie girls. They were allowed to develop their personalities naturally.
Amelia saw an air show and decided that she wanted to do that and so, she did!
She was born in Kansas in 1897 and was officially declared officially dead in 1939, two years after going missing over the Pacific Ocean, whilst trying to fly around the world.
She was the first female aviator to do a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean and she wrote a book on her experiences.
Here is a great visual about Amelia from #infographicbox.
Although she didn’t survive to be an old lady, she did live the life she wanted to live and her famous quote “The most effective way to do it is to do it.” is great sensible advice that we, well at least I speak for myself, need to remember. I often think and worry about doing something more time than it actually takes to finally do it.
Thankyou Amelia and Thankyou to her mother Amy, who although her own mother disagreed with her treating her daughters equal to boys, she gave them a wonderful mind set which I truly admire.
Now, I’m off to read more about Amelia. Feeling positive and ready to actually do things.
