Among the many women we could celebrate from world leaders, distinguished scholars, educators, healers, accomplished entertainers, and those who do countless other jobs serving humanity, don’t forget to honor the one who greets you in the mirror every morning – You!
Yes, You. You are a leader in your corner of the world. No one can tell a Knock Knock joke quite like you. And you are the Go-To Gal for all the homework questions! While you may not see yourself as making any grand gestures in the world (doing mountains of laundry, packing lunches, preparing dinners, sewing Halloween costumes, supervising craft projects, filling Christmas stockings, and driving the circumference of the earth to band practice, soccer, ballet, gymnastics, ice skating, hockey, and piano), but I’m sure there are those in your life who would disagree with you.
Give yourself a pat on the back and a “You Go, Girl!” cheer.
What you do matters and you deserve to be celebrated for every dirty sock, meatloaf, meeting, report and all of the other thousands of creative things you do!
While to the world, you may never be famous, never be written up in Who’s Who, or interviewed on Oprah, you are a very important person in your circle…important in your own life.
In honor of National Women’s History Month, I celebrate YOU. I celebrate me. I celebrate Us. Let’s celebrate each other!
