Originally called International Working Women’s Day, is marked on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements.
I think Women’s Day should be something celebrated and recognized more often than one day a year (well, aside from Mother’s Day this is the only other day for all women).
I am so blessed to have not just been raised and surrounded by such dynamic and inspirational women such as my Mom, Grandma, Aunts and Good Friends, but also along my pathway in life, been placed in opportunities to meet even more wonderful and motivating women — both in my career and personal voyage.
The one thing we women need to start to doing, is continuing to inspire and motivate one other.
This is something that I see such a lack of in this day and age. Where women want to succeed in their endeavours, but in a “step all over you to get what I want” kinda way (sadly without notice most times).
Whatever happened to support? Let’s continue to do this and build a world of strong yet motivating and empathetic women.
Let’s use this day and each day moving forward to help build character and strength in every person we come across.
Who is the most inspiring and strongest woman in your life?
