- International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day 2021
Women are encouraging each other to speak our truth more clearly and loudly than we ever have before. Now, when we see something that we don’t like, or something that doesn’t seem fair or feel right, you better believe we are going to say something!
As I always say, speaking up takes courage; that it takes courage to care, because it does. You know what else takes courage – wading through the endless, muddy waters of a global pandemic! Reinventing what your life looks like on the daily – even when it feels like every day looks the same.
Considering how much courage is required to make it from sunup to sundown these days, I’m happy to report that in addition to being required, courage is also reciprocal! Meaning the more you give to someone else, the more you gain in return!
This International Women’s Day, send a little love to the women who have been helping you get going when the going has gotten tough. I #choosetochallenge you to carve out a little time for your number one gal…. (hint: it’s you) – to do something nice for yourself – I can say with great certainty – YOU DESERVE IT!
Today, I dedicate this post to the strong, beautiful and capable women in my life, with extra love and gratitude towards the ladies who are on my team. The women who are working to manage me, as I maneuver myself through unchartered territory while they simultaneously manage gaggles of kids schooling from home, lockdowns, social distancing, on top of distance from loved ones…and that’s just the beginning.
Thank you for being you. Thank you for all that you do, and for choosing to challenge me to grow, to step outside of my comfort zone, and supporting me every step of the way.
