March 8 marks the International Women’s Day, the day to celebrate the woman power. Although the celebration is perpetual, this is a day that symbolises the pride and glory of womanhood.
It has been well-said by African-American poet Mary Angelou-“How important it is for us to recognise and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” Women’s Day is the opportunity to recognise the achievements of she-roes across the globe- the famous ones and the unsung ones alike.
Women have achieved a lot more than men today. We are born to multi-task, which gives them the amazing ability to juggle their domestic and professional responsibilities so effortlessly.
I believe we all have a life of our own and the right to live it the way we want to. Let’s come together and be the change! Make Your Own Choices – Take the first Step to fulfill the dreams we dream and make them a reality!
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”. Coco Chanel
Whether it is about what you wear or where you work, it is you who should be empowered with these choices. Why should anyone make the decisions for you? And while you make these choices, let them reflect class and dignity.
Chase Your Dreams
“Give a girl the right shoes, and she will conquer the world”. Marilyn Monroe
You are as capable as your male counterparts, and you have proved this everywhere. You just need the right opportunities and confidence and capabilities will take you right on the top.
Learn To Rise after You Fall
“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” Oprah Winfrey
You have the resilience to rise after you fall and the courage to take failures in a stride. You learn from failures rather than let them stop you from going ahead.
“Well behaved women rarely make history.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Be brave enough to swim against the tide and break conventions. Dare to be different and do what you think is right.
Value Your Independence
“A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.” Melinda Gates
Aspire to be independent- financially, emotionally, and physically. You don’t need to depend on a man to live your life.
“Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.” Ellen Degeneres
And most importantly, love who you are and just be yourself!
Let’s wish the most special women in our lives- the mother, the wives, the daughters, the sisters, the friends and the colleagues. Happy Women’s Day!<Motivat
