Happy International Women's Day

Happy International Women's Day! As you may already know, my blog is no longer just about fashion (especially given the current situation). To be quite honest, I am in sweatpants and sweatshirts 7 days a week. However, I do enjoy sharing a sliver of my life with you. This past weekend, I was on the phone with some of my girlfriends. They congratulated me on my promotion. Then they asked me "How do you do it all?" Quite honestly, it wasn't easy but through trial and error, I figured out ways to do it all. In honor of International Women's Day, I wanted to share my thoughts on what makes a strong woman? I'd like to think myself as a strong woman. Those days that women have to pick between having a career and being a stay at home Mom are long gone. In today's society, women have choices: You can be a career-orientated woman, a wonderful stay at home Mom, a badass business owner, a caring wife or you can be it all. I wear so many hats because I want it all and I believe I can do it all. I don't have to choose. I have a fulfilling career, I strive to be the best mother and wife I can be for my family. It's not easy. I still struggle everyday but it can be done. I aim to make every aspect of my life a great one, whether it be family or career. Finding balance can be challenging and it actually requires a great amount of work. I chose to focus on what's best for me and my family. I chose to live a purposeful life. The denifiniton of a strong woman means different things to different people. To some, a strong woman is one who can truly have it all: a successful career, a loving marriage, beautiful children, a gorgeous home and a world traveler. To me, a strong woman knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after what she wants. She knows how to be happy and contented. I have 2 daughters and I'm determined to raise my daughters to be strong, confident, independent and not afraid to go after what make them happy. I'll always be there for them and support them anyway I can just like my parents did for me. Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.
