Today I take a moment to celebrate all of the amazing women in my life.
I am lucky to have been raised by one, am honored to be raising two and I am surrounded by so many.
These women have filled my life with the moments that have made me cry, made me laugh until I leaked a little, and have made me proud to be a member of the sisterhood.
I am inspired daily with what women go though, rise above and do for others, often supressing their own needs to offer support to someone else.
I have witnessed silent acts of kindness. Those little notes, a meal cooked or that smile with a knowing nod, that lets you know you’re not alone.
The women in my life have supported me through;
- my childhood
- bad spiral perms and blue eyeliner
- broken hearts
- fluro clothing
- sex, vagina, boob situations!
- new jobs
- engagement, marriage, childbirth
- meltdowns (many meltdowns)
- career, sporting, life achievments
- parenting – babies, toddlers and adults
- my ever evolving marriage
- turning 30 and 40
- re-learning me as my nest empties
And everything else life has thrown at me. They’ve laughed, cried and danced with a hairbrush in the mirror with me.
I say today and everyday, thankyou.
Be a women that knows how hard it is to look as if you’ve got your shit together and congratulate those who manage to do it on any give day.
Be a women who supports other women.
Be a women who raises supportive women.
