“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” – Marilyn Monroe
In honor of International Women’s Day I wanted to honor those women before us who have changed the world. They inspire us to do better, be stronger and create. These women have opened doors, empowered and given us strength to dream bigger. While there is not space enough here to list all the amazing women of history, the inspiration they provide can move us forward as women and urge each of us to be the best we can be.
Each of us has a task to inspire those around us for together we can change in the world. Women past and present who show us we have no boundaries or limits, those who inspire us to think differently and not let the status quo rule. They show us we can open doors where there once was a wall and that we can still be loving, beautiful women while breaking down barriers. They show us we don’t have to accept being “less than” and that we can be strong.
Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony, Elenore Roosevelt, Sandra Day O’Connor, Mother Teresa, Gloria Steinem, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Golda Meir, Anne Frank, Elizabeth Warren, Malala Yousafzai…the list goes on and on.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!
How will you inspire other women? Will you open doors? Heal a broken heart? Pass legislation? Write a book? Be a friend? Hold a hand? Show love and kindness? Your contribution, whatever it may be, is important and valuable for it just may inspire other women. To women of the world, I honor you and your contribution past, present and future! Together we stand strong as we inspire each other to be the best we can be.~Shine Your Light Debbie
