I know International Women’s Day was last week but I really wanted to commemorate it with something on the blog. In the last year (since becoming a mom of 2) there have been so many positive changes (here are some to name a few) I have gone through by finding my way through intense obstacles. So much so, that I wanted to take a minute to reflect and remind myself and my daughters of how capable we are. Although most days I feel like I am doing a $hitty job as a wife and mom (daughter, employee, blogger, friend the list goes on) – I know I am doing something incredibly magical. Bringing up children (especially girls in our day in age) is probably the greatest opportunity I have been given. I am grateful and in awe.
I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a photographer. I am an MBA. I am a writer. I am a creative. I am stronger than I know. I am braver than I feel. I am more successful than I think. I am happy. I am emotional. I am grateful. I am an Engineer. I am a Fashionista. I am a singer. I am a shouter. I am a lover. I am a woman. – BMM
Also, I feel the society we are living in is now much stronger – especially after the events of 2017. My hope is that we can raise these girls of ours to stand up for themselves, those without a voice and for everything good in this world. I hope they can look to each other and other women for support and inspiration. I want them to know that when life is dark, there is always light to be found and embraced. That anything is possible with a determined mindset and everyday grind. I probably don’t tell them enough, but I want to let my daughters know they are beautiful, strong, courageous and so loved.
