Happy International Women's Day | Inspiring Change

When I found out today was International Women's Day, I quickly began to think of who I would blog about.  I thought of important women in history and thought I should find one that really inspired me and blog about her.  But then I thought about it some more and I realized, I am surrounded by so many inspiring women on a daily basis, let's talk about them for a bit.  Let's honor the working mom who wakes up every morning at 6am to start her day packing lunches, folding laundry, dropping kids off at school, then go to work every day.  Let's honor the moms who homeschool their children.  The women who own their own businesses.  The mom who finds time in her busy schedule to take care of herself too.  Let's honor the women who follow their dreams and pursue their passions in life.  Let's honor the girlfriends who will stay up all night with you when you've had a bad day and need someone to vent to.  Let's honor our mothers for the sacrifices they've made to raise us to be strong independent women.  Let's honor each other.  We are all inspiring.  

This year's theme for Women's International Day is: Inspiring Change.  Well, I am here today to tell you that you can make a difference.  You can change your life to be what you want it to be.  Your choices, your actions, your words can inspire someone to make positive changes in their life too.  Then their changes will inspire someone else and so on and so on.  You can be the start of something amazing.  

This goes out to all of us:  mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, aunts, nieces, grandmothers, granddaughters, girlfriends, women, girls.  Today on Women's International Day, I ask that we be aware of our actions, that we be aware of our words.  That we not put ourselves down.  Let's be proud of where we come from, where we've been, and most importantly, let's be proud of who we are!  We have the power to inspire change.  

Here I am with the most important and inspiring women in my life.  My sister, my mother, and my daughter.  Who inspires you?
