ALL WOMEN ARE WORTHY #beboldforchange

I write this blog as I soak in a hot lavender bubble bath, my favourite place and time to reflect. For me International Women’s Day is a day of celebration, recognition and appreciation for women all over the world. It is a day that should be recognised by both men and women; although I’m sure some men will probably roll their eyes and mutter “bra burners”  under their breath, even still in 2017.
All I have to say to that is: we probably wouldn’t have a day like today if ALL men around the world started seeing women as equal to them, go roll your eyes at the men who still suppress women, doubt women and be little women.

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE A VOICE! 
For me having a voice and sharing my thoughts and opinions is a huge responsibility but one in which I love. I don’t ever want to give the wrong advice or a bad impression and aim to be a positive role model to all women, young & old.
 I’ve worked hard to build up my client base whilst working 2 other jobs, as well as pushing my Instagram profile, ensuring I stay true to my word with my reviews and blogs. I’m so proud of what I’ve achieved in a year and I’m not afraid to say it….
However, despite all of this girl power, independent woman talk coming from me. I’ve realised that actually in hindsight, what I don’t think about enough is how lucky I am to have the freedom to do all of it. How lucky I am to actually be able to choose what I want to become or who I want to be and instead take something like this for granted when it is such a luxury for so many women and girls around the world.
.
I need to start thinking more about the women around the world who aren’t even allowed to pick up a pen and write, speak their opinion or marry the man they truly love! We all need to start thinking about these women more.
.
International women’s day has for once made me stop and really appreciate the freedom that I have as a woman in the UK, living with a very modern family and a very understanding boyfriend.
Now realistically, we can’t all give up everything we have here and fly over to the countries most effected to offer our support. I understand that and one day I do hope to do this because it is such an important cause. However what we CAN DO is: 
………………………………………………………………………………………………..
  • Stop taking education for granted, we are so lucky to have the schools we have in the UK & Ireland, with the freedom to learn and achieve qualifications for what ever subjects we like. 
  • Dream big and work hard because there are millions of women who are not allowed to work.
  • Don’t settle for an unhealthy relationship, you have the choice to marry someone who loves you, many women don’t. 
  • Use your voice for the good, inspire people, motivate them and only speak positively of others because there are women out there who have to sit in silence.

I’m no Mother Theresa, there is a lot more I can do to support women suffering in silence and I’ll get there by starting with this blog and working hard everyday to inspire, achieve and promote self worth amongst women.
I do hope that my words will also inspire you to think twice before you moan about working or having to go to extra revision class. I hope it wakes you up from your comfortable life for just a moment because it has certainly woken me up from my relaxing bubble bath! I want ALL women to feel worthy to do what I am able to do and so should you.

To me ALL women are strong but together we are so much STRONGER. Share some awareness today for International Women’s Day #beboldforchange and tag all the women you love most! Oh and tag all the men who need a gentle reminder of who is boss!
………………………………………………………………………………………………..
With Love,
