I came across this wonderful blog and video One Million Amazing Women of a woman who started a tribute to her friend who died of cancer last year. This tribute is not just about cancer patients however, it is a tribute to ALL the great women out there! That, is YOU!
As women we do not get told that near enough. We get up each day and do the things we have to do to run our lives. Some days it seems we can barely hold it together. Many women care for their families on their own. Many women are caring for their aging parents. Many women are caring for their grandchildren. Who cares for us? We are usually last on our list! Now, I do admit that many if us have great support systems. I have a wonderful husband! Even so, I believe that men sometimes have no idea the emotional burden we carry on a daily basis.
Never forget that YOU are awesome, that you are created in the image of God, that you have wonderful talents and gifts that were given specifically to YOU! I encourage you, in your everyday life, to begin to look for ways to let that AWESOME you shine. Find a way to incorporate the things that bring you joy into your life. Do those things that make your face light up! Never, ever forget that you are special, and that you have much to bring to this world! There are people in YOUR world that you can inspire, you can make an impact on THEIR lives. Everything you do can make a difference, whether it is a smile at a older woman in the the store, or helping a young mother in her car with her groceries in the rain! Maybe it is saying “good job!” to your 2 year old who is potty training or maybe it is working on a cure for cancer. Each and every one of these are important to the person you are reaching out to! As you go about your day, look for ways to reach out and lift up others, in doing so, you can’t help but feel better by making someone else smile!
