(I hope no one minds that this is a repost from last year: I still mean every word)!
Today is, “International Women’s Day”. Women across this globe of ours have paved the way for future generations of girls to realize that they too have opportunities to fulfill their dreams and aspirations.
I look back at old photographs of suffragette women who fought against inequity for the right to vote, educational opportunities, marched for the intolerance of harassment in the workplace, and to hold a meaningful place in society. We have come a long way, to be sure; however, I feel there is still a long way to go in order to see the changes we truly owe to our fellow women.
Women are the great ‘connectors’; we are the peace-makers, social schedulers, card senders, phone callers, and nest builders, if you will.
I want to give a huge thanks of gratitude to the women who strive every single day to make their own lives (and those of others) more joyful, happy, and meaningful. I am incredibly grateful to you.
