Celebrating Women

  • Posted on July 5, 2010 at 7:40 am

It is important to remember celebrate the women who have been influential in your life. Who has influenced you and the decisions you have made throughout your life?

I have been privileged throughout my life to have had so many women of influence. More so since my own mother never learned how to be a mother. It’s not necessary to have had a good mother to be able to appreciate what strong positive women can mean to you and the outcome of your life.

I finally realized that every experience and every person who has ever come into my life has lead me to who I am today. That means even my mother’s influence created my personality, preferences and guidelines as to how I would live my life.

I like who I am and who I have turned out to be. Therefore, every woman, including my mother has had a positive effect on my life. They have molded me to be the kind of woman who is sensitive and caring.

Can you think of at least ten women who have been a major influence on your life? Have you ever thought of how much they have offered you the opportunity to become a better person or changed you in many ways?

Take the time to acknowledge these women and let them know how much you appreciate their influence.

Women Who Shine

I have met more women in my life who are extraordinary than I ever imagined possible. It is true it is easier to meet such women when I go out of my way to be at places where more of these women would hang out.

I am truly amazed by the stories of some of the women who have overcome such adversity as coming from impoverished homes, raised their children as single parents while working a full time job or survived health issues when they were told they would never be able to survive.

So what is it that makes someone overcome the impossible? How is it that some people stare the most critical challenges in life in the face and won’t consider succumbing to their predicted fate?

I celebrate the women who I have met in my life.

From the English teacher I had in high school, Mrs. Lemos who kept me after school and had me read Shakespeare while holding my tongue to stop my stuttering. It worked! Can you imagine having a the foresight and patience to work with a student for an entire year, just to help them with their stuttering.

Who are the Sheros in your life? Have you acknowledged them lately? It’s a simple thing to do, but so meaningful when you remember to let them know how much they have meant to you in your life.
