I've never taken a huge load of interest in International Women's Day in the past. I've known about it, and probably mentioned it in passing at some points. This year however, is different. Embarking on this new journey in my life, both personally and professionally, I have come into conact with some real kick-ass, strong, fierce, determined, insirational women, from All walks of life. So with that in mind, I want ALL the women i've met, yet to meet and will never meet to celebrate themelves, and all the women around them.
Why shouldn't we celebrate ourselves and all our awesomeness? We are badass. This is not to take anything away from men, but today is our day. Our day to big up ourselves and scream how fantastic we are.
Married, single, mother, no children, gay, straight, black, white, tall, short, fat, thin, working, unemployed, old, young, rich or poor. Whatever your scenario and circumstances, understand that YOU are amazing. Everyday you get up and you crack on, tackling each new day, and the hurdles it brings. Some days we may not always get it right. Some days, it takes a huge effort to even put one foot in front of the other. Other days we smash out the park, chest held high. In any event, in our own individual ways, we fix our crown on our head and keep going. We all have different capabilities, goals and aspirations, but we keep striving for more in our own amazing, individual and unique way.
We each face our own daily emotional, physical and mental battles, but we got this sisters, and when you don't have it all together, that's when your sisters around you will step up and have your back.
So today let's celebrate each other and unite, because we are strong.
