As International Women’s Day comes to a close, I think it’s valuable to mention the beauty, power, and wonder that comes with being a female in this world today. Some might think there’s high pressure to be, look, or act a certain way, and I don’t disagree——in fact, I think that’s so, so (sadly) accurate——but I think there is such bright hope for what’s yet to come.
Whether you’re a woman or man, young or old, what today symbolizes is that as human beings, no matter our race, or sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background, we are each called to be our best selves and share it with the world. Why keep your gifts to yourself? Go out and do what you want to do and be who you want to be, no matter what that looks like. You can, and will, make a difference when you let your passions and gifts guide you.
Today, and everyday, I’m thankful for the ladies that have shown me the kind of woman I want to be. I can only hope that I have the same influence on others someday, too. Shoutout to all the beautiful women out there today. xx
