YOU CAN…BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO

YOU CAN

But you don’t have to…

There are so many things I want to say today, on International Women’s Day 2018, but rather than bombard you with a myriad reasons why women are amazing, I want to focus on one thing. One thing which I think is important, right here, right now.

Ladies, Women, Girls – whatever you prefer to be called – you can.

Of course you can.

We have always known that, but now, we can really, truly go for it. With far fewer obstacles in our path.

We are entering an era of ACTUAL equality. It is really happening. At long last.

But I want you to remember that just because you can, doesn’t mean you have to.

Yes, it has been a long fight, with battles hard-won, but it is not your responsibility to take every opportunity that is available to you, simply because you can.

It is your responsibility to make your own choices. Whatever they may be.

That was the point.

You don’t have to ‘have it all’.

Not if you don’t want to.

You get to choose.

You get to own your own choices.

Your life, your way.

THAT was the point.

Remember too, never judge another woman for the path she chooses just because it doesn’t mirror yours.
We are all in this together.
We all need each other.

Women got here by speaking out, by saying enough is enough.

By standing together, not divided.

So, go forth and spread the support, spread the encouragement, spread the appreciation of each other.

It is a power that we have and it is all ours.

Happy International Women’s Day to each and every one of you, wherever you are, whatever you choose, whoever you may be.
