Happy International Women’s Day to every woman.
This day has made me reflect on what we as women bring to the table. I believe it’s all sorts of things at all sorts of times. Right now for me, this season has been about being with my kids and taking on the role of mother like never before. Some days I have never been happier sitting at swimming lessons, and making sure homework is complete, and other days I feel I should be doing and achieving more on a career front. Both are equally as important, but sometimes the balance leans far more in one direction than the other. I try hard not to see this as a pause in my life, but an investment far greater that I’ll ever know.
My mission, is to give what life hands me my full force, no matter the season, and to be fully present, loving and kind in every situation (which I completely fail at sometimes, by the way!). Life has given me two beautiful boys to raise. My time has been well spent with them. I hope they see a woman who is every bit soft as she is strong. That they see that their Dad treats her with respect, consideration and encouragement. I hope they grow into men who love women the way they should be loved.
To women across the globe today-I salute you, I cheer you on and I celebrate you in whatever season you might find yourself in.
