Happy International Women's Day!

Every year on March 8th we Celebrate International Women's Day. We celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women from past, present and future.

Today I'd like you all to take a moment and think about the important women in your life. Today you should show respect and appreciation for those you love.. including yourself!  We have come a very long way since the first International Women's Day that took place in the early 1900's and we are VERY lucky that those women (and women since have) fought for our rights and our freedom. In some countries this is still a very real problem. People are still opposing this holiday.

Self love, respect and appreciation is very important and is one thing I see many, many women and young girls struggle with. Whether you are a mother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend or acquaintance.. show your love, respect and appreciation for the other women in your life today (and everyday for that matter). In some countries (27 to be exact) International Women's Day is an official holiday and in some is the equivalent to Mother's Day.

Though we still have a long way to go.. we cannot forget how far we have come! So instead of focusing on the negatives today.. remember the positives and smile. Remember that change is possible and you have the ability to make that change. Keep on fighting ladies.. keep on loving!

Thanks for reading and have a fantastic day!
