In Honor Of International Women’s Day

Since today is International Women’s Day…I’m changing things up a bit today and starting a new tradition (or a one day only tradition) for Whatever Wednesdays!  Yep if it flows with our community, I will post about it.  Today’s post is geared for all women, which is at least half of our readers 😉   So its time to recognize just how much we’ve accomplished as women.

Big Female Accomplishments

If you want to inspire your kids or yourself to make that big move its never been easier than now to see the inspiration happening all around us.  Females are accomplishing big things now more than ever before!  Here are a few major accomplishments from females:

We Are Stronger Together

We need to tell our children that competition doesn’t make us stronger.  It’s all about standing within a community and standing proud.  Both as an individual and as a collective strength.  You need to stand in high integrity, be the leader you were born to be, and speak your truth…all of it!  So take some time and celebrate even if you weren’t able to yesterday.  Happy International Women’s Day!
