Women's Self-Empowerment

Today marks the beginning of Women’s Self-Empowerment Week. For me, this is a time for self-reflection, as well as appreciation of others.

Personally, I fluctuate between thinking I’m strong, and wondering if I really am. But deep in my heart, I know I have strength. I am a mother and a daughter, a wife and a friend. I am independent, intelligent, and intuitive. I’ll do the rest of my self-reflection on my own, but now I’d like to show my appreciation for other women.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but I’d like to give a shout out to all the strong women I know who:

  • choose to stay at home with their children
  • dared to try something new, even if it might result in failure
  • fight illness with a positive and healthy attitude
  • have launched their own business
  • know how to change a tire
  • struggle with or have overcome depression
  • take time for themselves
  • teach our children and help them navigate the path to their future
  • watch others’ children so they can go to work
  • welcome others with open arms and hearts, and a genuine smile

You all inspire me in various ways, and I am glad our paths have crossed in this lifetime.
