What is a Salty Woman?

Salt was a valuable preservative before refrigeration. Without covering foods in salt, they would rot. Salt is a flavor enhancer, elevating the taste of food to make eating more pleasurable. We cry tears of salt, lose salt when we perspire and have to replenish it to keep our hearts stabilized and our bodies properly functioning. Salt is a necessity to life.  Even Jesus said to “be the salt of the earth.” Meaning, season life for others and be true to your message – don’t dilute yourself.

When I think of a salty woman, I think she is someone who has been seasoned by life and also enhances life for others. A salty woman isn’t defined by an age, although most salty woman I know are a little more mature. Seasoning can take time. Yet some seem born saltier.

A salty woman is confident and knows herself well. From that confidence she is able to say what she really thinks and believes. She can be bold and loud, or bold and quiet. Some salty woman are introverts, others extroverts.

What I love about the salty women I have known is their confidence and their appetite for life. They don’t just sit quietly at the table and wait to get served life; they devour life and inspire others to taste more.

As I mature, my daughters tell me that I am getting salty. But I will never hold a candle to my mom, the Original Salty Woman in our family. Ljubica Metikos, otherwise known as Baka, taught us all how to appreciate life more by adding seasoning it,  enjoying the bolder flavors as we bite off big chunks. I hope to pass some of that on.

Stay Salty ladies!

Thank you Belinda! My mother was a VERY salty woman and has inspired me all of my life! She still does, even though she has been with the Lord for eight years. I am so looking forward to getting to know you and letting your story inspire other women. When we’re finished, we can share your story on Latinas Think Big so that your awesome community of women can celebrate your triumphs and find motivation through you!

Blessings and talk soon!
