Happy International Women’s Day! This day can mean many things to different people. However, it is clear that globally, International Women’s Day is a time to honor our equality and raise joyous celebration. I love being a woman! I am proud of the strong legacy that was left by many women before me. Let’s recognize and celebrate our womanhood!
Here are a few things that set us apart. Women can:
-Multitask: As I write this blog, I’m listening to music, sipping my coffee, and making a mental to do list of what needs to be done around my house after work.
-Remember Details: A blessing and a curse when you want to forget the past but are grateful that you can recall details from a meeting so no task gets left undone.
-Bear Children: Ladies, we can literally grow humans inside of us! Poor men- they will never know the feeling of a child making his/her presence known with gentle kicks.
-Rapidly Think: I laugh when I ask my husband “What are you thinking?” and he nonchalantly answers “Nothing.” I will never understand how to turn my mind off.
-Feel Deeply: More often than not, we tend to be more emotionally expressive than men. This is what guides us to be so tender-hearted, compassionate, and empathetic.
So today, as we appreciate the characteristics that set us apart as women, let’s celebrate by empowering one another. Reach out to another woman today and encourage her, because hey- empowered women empower women. Happy Empowering!
