I had a dream last night that I was Donna Paulsen from Suits. Now I know this may seem weird or a silly sentiment, but if you work in an environment like I do, then you need to be on top of your game to make things work right. If you watch the series, you will now who Donna (Played by Sarah Rafferty) is, and you may or may not like her. I guess there are probably two groups as with anything. You may be like me, and absolutely long to have the efficiency, style, class & capability of Donna or you may just not like her at all but that is not what this post is about.
I thought it would be a fun Friday thing if I used my 5 for Friday to tell you why I want to be like Donna (Please don’t get me wrong, I am not telling people to change who they are, just that it is good to aspire to someone or something every once in a while and when I am in a more serious mood, I will tell you why I aspire to be like Sheryl Sandberg too.)
Why I want to be Donna from Suits
Donna is the EA (executive assistant) of Harvey Specter, a partner in a big law firm that is the setting of the show for those that don’t know. She is admired and feared by associates and partner’s alike, and she doesn’t hesitate to use that bit of power when it’s needed. There are many female television and movie character’s that I am sure many of us daydream about being like in a particular movie, but there is only one character on television that I can say without fail in every episode I want to be like her all the time. Here are my 5 reasons for saying that.
1.Donna knows everything!
2. Donna is cool, calm and collected and always get’s what she wants, even if it didn’t go as planned.
3. Donna looks good in everything and knows how to take care of herself.
4. Donna doesn’t apologize for being who she is, she knows her value and has the guts to be real.
5. Nobody steps of Donna, she is a force to be reckoned with.
So I realize that this post is not super rich with interesting content but it is sure great to be a little less serious sometimes. If you have never watched suits then I highly suggest you do, you may even see something about one of the characters you possibly would aspire to be more like if you do.
Have a great weekend all, rest up and face the new week ready to kick some butt!
