Have you ever stopped to actually think how many amazing women are in your life? I have been #blessed with amazing females in my life who have always supported and encouraged me to follow my dreams and who have been role models for me along the way.
My best friend is relentless in ensuring I am I fully aware at all times of how amazing I am. She is Leslie Knope in the best way because she sees me as a tropical land mermaid, which she likes to remind me on a nearly daily basis. We all need someone like her in our lives.
My former boss is such a kick ass woman. She’s like the older and experienced cousin relationship I never got to have; she’s done the corporate job ladder, quit to have a family, etc etc and never fails to tell our group the truth about everything, and I mean things about having babies that I didn’t even know were possible.
My coworkers are utterly amazing and ALL women. It’s so inspiring to see them all fiercely working and unapologetically being the bad ass women they are. Also big shoutout to my former coworkers, they also inspired me and encouraged me to be the best version of myself I could be.
To my mother who always supported me in whatever crazy thing I wanted to do. Thank you for loving me no matter what, you’ll always be my favorite woman.
Honestly I could go ON AND ON. I could thank Taylor Swift for being a role model and showing me how to stop trying to be the nice girl, the good girl who does what everyone expects of her. I could thank RBG, well for being RBG. Sophia Bush for teaching me to think about big questions and challenge unrealistic ways of thinking. My aunts, grandmothers, childhood friends, college friends, my boyfriend’s mom, aunt, sister in law, and cousins, the list goes on and I can’t ever summarize how all these strong women have impacted my life and how thankful I am for them to be in my life.
I encourage you to reach out thank some of the women in your life today. Think about how your life would be different without them in it and how they were there for you.
Happy International Women’s Day!
