#HLWDK Daily Health Tips: International Women's Day 2020


Happy International Women’s Day!
The year has just started (barely) but, oh so much, has already happened! Do you feel the same?
So today, I explore what it means to b a woman. To me…
It’s being thankful for the wonderful children I have (who are not perfect by any means) but make me so very happy πŸ˜€
It’s rising above whatever the world tells me is impossible and going ahead to do it (whatever it may be at that moment)
It’s doing it afraid (feeling literally petrified at the prospect of doing it, but finding the inner strength to lift my head high, face my fears and carry on)
It’s lighting the torch for women coming behind me – supporting them to be the best version of themselves and holding them accountable for paying it forward
It’s owning my story – not making excuses for where I’ve been or what I’ve been through. Owning it and speaking to what that has made me today
It’s knowing that my journey has not been easy and yet everyday, I rise!
It’s identifying as a happy feminist, in the words of my daughter, who works to lift other women and support the destruction (yes! Very harsh indeed πŸ˜€ ) of glass ceilings wherever they exist!
So, I ask, β€œare you Generation Equality? Are you supporting the “Realiz(ation) of Women’s Rights?’
For the women, what does being a woman mean to you? And for the men, how do you support the women in your lives to be the best version of themselves?
Happy International Women’s Day!
