I. Am. Woman.

I know you read the title and you added “hear me roar”. There isn’t going to be any roaring here. Well maybe a little bit 🙂

Given that tomorrow is International Women’s Day (March 8), I wanted to talk about women. In the past few months, I have met some phenomenal women. I already knew a lot of phenomenal women, but I’m happy that I have been fortunate enough to encounter some more.

I’m writing this blog to encourage us to spread more love, especially between us women. I hear women talk from time to time and it seems as though it is easy to highlight the negative. We speak hate. We need to stop this haterism. I try to keep a positive outlook and push my optimist agenda at any chance I get. In today’s world, where hate comes so easily, let’s all show some love.

As women, let’s not break each other down, but rather lift each other up. This is a challenge to each and every one of you. Don’t hate. Celebrate. Congratulate. Yes, you! Congratulate! Acknowledge that someone’s effort is worthy of applause.

In addition to that, we need to support each other after dealing with people that are trying to cut us down. After dealing with mansplaining. After dealing with wage gaps. After dealing with inequality. We need to stick together. We need to join each other in the fight. We need to persist!

If you need some inspiration take a page out of the books of some persistent, positive women. Look at Malala Yousafzai, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Oprah Winfrey, J.K. Rowling, Angela Merkel, and even St. Maarten’s very own Silveria Jacobs and Nicole DeWeever – just to name a few. There are many more. After you’ve gotten your inspiration, inspire someone! Let’s keep lifting each other up.
