International Womens Day

I was talking to my 65-year-old neighbour one day, she was sharing with me her memories of her mom fighting for women’s rights.  She was happy to see the significant changes but felt there was still a long way to go when she hears stories of women who still struggle to stand up for who they are as women.

It was a very interesting conversation, we stood there for a long time chatting about the subject.  I was telling her that I couldn’t imagine women fighting for the right to simply vote. Seems crazy that women not too long ago didn’t have that freedom.   However, lately, there has been a lot of talk of domestic abuse toward women and many women out there don’t feel they can be safe in their freedom. 

We still have a ways to go and I believe supporting one another is crucial.  I also believe in open conversation, listening with love and non-judgement is also very important for women to feel valued, and loved.  

Women visionaries with the courage to make change have expanded our path to infinite possibilities.  

Women come from many different cultures, upbringings, experiences, environments.  Beliefs in what women can achieve or can do, and their values will play a role in how they view women’s way of life.  We need to be understanding, yet educate on what is right without impeding on one’s identity and expand awareness of everything is possible. 

I’ve always been a strong advocate for women’s rights, supporting women in their vision, dreams and respecting choices, changes.  We evolve as we learn as people and the more we take time to respect one another for the good and the bad decision in our lives with compassion, the stronger we can be as we unite.  

I invite you to take the time to think of women in your life.  Think of who they are, where they came from, what they have done, where they are going and how you may be able to support them.  Support can be as simple as a listening ear, a quick hello, or it can be anything you feel they may need at the present moment.

You don’t need to be besties with all women, you don’t need to save everyone however you can start with one person to be the best woman she can be and that would be YOU!

If you need support or know of anyone who may need support there is an array of people out there ready to help.

I’m available as your guide toward achieving your goals.
