Your normal might be a privilege for someone else. Your independence might be a dream for many. Your struggle can be inspiration for others and your choice can spark a change.
This Women’s Day -I Choose to Challenge!
To see a change in our world we have to begin with ourselves, our homes and our daily lives. We have to find the courage to stand up for ourselves, voice our opinions, put ourselves first, value our dreams and aim big.
The level of challenges differ for all women. We have to respect, support and judge less. We can start by cheering for our peers and celebrating their success. We have to challenge the mindset that slows our progress and clouds our thinking. We can support each other by calling out the gender bias and inequality.
Change begins at home so we have to start there. Our everyday choices impact our lives. Women tend to limit themselves because they are either conditioned to adjust, sacrifice or lack direction. Lend support, listen and offer help.
The most effective way to face our challenges is to break the stereotypes imposed on us. It is never too late in life to find a passion and go for it. You assert yourself and see a difference.
Don’t compare your struggles and don’t discount someone’s effort. It takes more courage to challenge our own biases and take a stand in front of our own.
This Women’s Day I challenge the stereotype I face that I am ‘just a mom’! It is my choice to be who I am and what I want to be. I am a person with ideas, creativity and passion. I am a woman who wears many hats. I write and draw to inspire, share and connect. I will break stereotypes and spark ideas with my cartoons. Yes! I can make a difference in my capacity.
I choose to Challenge the mindset that limits me to be ‘just a mom at home.’ Watch me change the world with my laptop and phone from my home!
Happy Women’s Day
