Kenny Rogers in “The Gambler” had it right.
You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
And, not to one up Kenny, Female IQ also believes you need to know when to hit your “F” it button.
When used responsibly (i.e. still being a good human and showing kindness), your “F” it button allows you the freedom to explore new things like adult jazz class, to be youthful/reckless like eating onion rings on a Tuesday (rather than Sunday Funday or on a vacation), and to remove the shackles of your day to day routine or self-contrived restraints like believing just because you are 40+ you are not as sexy as that 20+ wearing a crop top in yoga class.
Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep
—Becca Edwards, founder of Female IQ
