Ladies and Gentle(wo)man,
Today is 8th of March, International Women’s Day which is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam, and others, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.
A little history: In Copenhagen, year 1910, the Second International Conference of Working Women was held. Clara Zetkin, leader of the ‘Women’s Office’ for the Social Democratic Party in Germany, tabled the actual idea of International Women’s Day. The Conference that counted over 100 women from 17 countries, greeted Zetkin’s idea with unanimous approval and as a result today we honor the existence, multiple power and presence of all Women in the world.
My dear ladies, today is an official Women’s Day, be proud of it. Celebrate it, honor it with proud and joy, cause where woman stands now wasn’t quite the same place in the past. Today we honor every single individual that had from the smallest to the biggest role creating and fighting for the place where woman is now. We are all human, we are as equal and as different as we can be. We all have strengths and weaknesses. How about Jamie Oliver, one of the best chefs, and Ana Beatriz, one of the best drivers world wide. Weird right? No! We can be as great as we can if we work on ourselves; and remember that if we want to see change around us, we must start from ourselves!
To not get carried away from the topic, it’s Woman’s day after all, and lets praise the existence of all Women that surrounds us, our Mothers, Daughters, Grandmothers, Aunts, all gorgeous female creatures, that God gave us.
Be thankful and cherish them, not just today but every single day. A woman is as gentle and beautiful as the most beautiful flower, so buy them a dozen, no reason needed, kiss their hand cause they are present is your life, hug them cause you truly love them.
And you ladies, be aware, be always aware of your bigness. Make everyday International Women’s Day. Love and be loved!
Happy 8th of March, Mom! ***
