I often say that our mission is to celebrate the everyday woman, so I wrote this post as a simple reminder of how women contribute to our world daily to make it a better place–and why women should be celebrated.
Next week marks International Women’s Day, a celebration of the fantastic women in our lives. They are more than just cheerleaders and sources of strength; they are also our confidantes, nurturers, and, most importantly, our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, and best friends. They perform these roles without expecting anything in return, so at our studio, we feel Women’s Day should be recognized daily!
Here’s a short list of reminders of why women should be celebrated.
A woman will sense when you’re low. They can bring a smile to your face and make you feel better. They understand what brings you joy and will make it their mission to help you feel better. They don’t expect anything in return for all they do for their family and friends.
Your mom, your sister, or your best friend she’s the one to talk to when you need to unload and share your feelings. Your mom, sis, or BFF is the one to turn to. She’s patient, so don’t worry about getting to the point; she’ll always listen. Plus, she knows you well enough to provide the most excellent counsel.
You can depend on her. Whatever the task is, rest assured that it will be done. They’re trustworthy. So if you tell them a secret, they won’t tell a soul. We should be proud of the women who have shaped us. We should be thankful for how they have blessed our lives with their gifts. So, let’s go out and recognize them on this special day.
Women are not usually hostile to each other. In truth, women support one another and will always have each other’s backs. They are willing to go to any lengths to help a friend out and put a smile on their face. The support structure that women create for each other in their communities, whether at work or at home, is at the top of my list of why women should be celebrated.
They run their homes while running companies. They are powerful. They’re so empowering that they inspire you. They want you to be a better version of yourself. They help you evolve. They’re Hard Working. They’re so much fun, but they’re equally hard-working. They’ll work day and night if they have to without complaining.
They are bosses that multitask. They know how to balance their lives. They don’t need to show off their skills to everyone. They’re grounded and humble. Under that soft and gentle exterior, they’re as strong as steel inside. They go through the most challenging situations in life and come out of it more vital than ever.
Despite their remarkable contributions, women are often not given the recognition they deserve. Our goal is to make a difference in this regard. We are much more than a studio; we strive to honor the strength women bring to our world and the magnificence they possess.
