Empower and Inspire: Uplifting Women

March 4, 2020 2 min read 10 Comments

Happy almost International Women’s Day!

I’ll admit, before starting this blog, I paid little to no attention to this special day highlighted on my phone’s calendar (I know, I know, the shame). But after meeting so many amazing women who are thriving in all aspects of life, I can’t help but take a step back and want to celebrate as well as highlight the women in our lives who inspire, champion, motivate, teach, and love us every single day.

Case in point, I recently learned very quickly just how valuable my circle of support is. Though I’ve grown into a strong, independent, and handle-it-myself kinda gal over the years, I’ve encountered some personal adversity and emotional anguish that have left me a blubbering mess at times. 

Without hesitation ladies in my family (hi mom), circle of friends, plus online buddies RALLIED to my side. They listened to me babble without judging, while simultaneously propping up my spirit and reminding me just what I was capable of. 

What this all led me to realize was that I had a group of kickass women around me who were confident and comfortable enough with who they were, to want to help another woman feel the same. Even more inspiring is that they knew it didn’t take anything away from them to be emotionally or professionally available, it actually added another layer to how wonderful they are. 

Down went society’s expectations of comparisons, jealousy, and superiority between women, and up came the desire to uplift, to have women thrive in ALL their full potential. 

What I’d like to share for today? Truly thank the women in your life, continue adding to your circle, and work towards leading by example.

Because let’s be honest … 

Empowered women, empower women

    Women are strong and we need to support and empower each other more. I love this post so much. We really need to work together more and take more time for us since women take the brunt of a lot.

    So true! We have to start working together instead of looking at every woman like they’re our competition. Keep kickin A**!
