Time check – Women’s day – 8th March.
Women’s day. It’s one of those days when people send lots of messages wishing women a happy women’s day. There are a lot of women events both workshops and parties and lots of celebration. Some men are treating their spouses or daughter’s out and it’s generally a happy day.
What does Womens day mean to you? For me on the contrary I feel like women need more recognition every day. Women need more attention and respect. Don’t treat me so well on one day of the year but on everyday.
Today though as I focus on all that’s going on around me I can’t help reflect on my own person journey as a woman. The challenges and opportunities I have had.
My earliest memories are my mother making delicious meals, baking bread at home and making cheese. Yes she is that kind of woman. On top of that she is a professional, a mentor and a friend to many. Sunday lunches always have lots of visitors. When I look back I see my mother is so much of the Proverbs 31 Woman. She is a homemaker, a worker, a business woman and so much more.
As we celebrate Women’s day today lets celebrate our diversity as women. Let’s celebrate our multifacet character. Let’s celebrate that we can hussle it our in the boardroom, be a mother to the kids, be that respectful loving partner and yet still be us.
Have a lovely day and take time to rest and recuperate from all your multiple tasks. Think about how you can celebrate with women and give back to those women who don’t feel like there is anything to celebrate.
